Brilliant food, great service and lovely atmosphere. After a week of bad food, dodgy guest houses and upset stomachs we arrived in Ella. A very short walk from the train station we came across cafe chill. What a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend!

This is very interesting place. Here you can see tourists from different countries because it is the most popular place for tourists at Ella. There are for you cool beer, hot tea, delicious dishes, I liked specially seafood soup, and of course a friendly get-together

This is the Best resurgent experience i ever had in Srilanka in the Little town Ella. The most fabulous integration of the all staff and the new concepts of the young polite owner are the PLUS points behind the satisfactions of all customers. food menu is the most updated and prices are so reasonable. Im highly recommending to stop in... More

Nice relaxed place, very popular, great curry and rice, good pizza. We were out of season and most other paces were quiet but this place was still buzzing

Clean, decent price for a beer. Try to sit in front for good people watching on Ella's main drag. The fries/chips looked big (steak-cut) and good. Split a pizza and salad with the wife, nothing to write home about. Fine place to spend an hour or two. Has wifi.

After getting off the train from Nuwara Eliya to Ella, we had quite an appetite. We saw this unique restaurant, and our driver told us that it was a good place. He was right! We enjoyed ourselves and took in all of the lovely decor and the awesome rock music playing! (U2!) I had a mojito and pizza. Nothing fancy,... More
