Great variety on the menu, everything we had was good.

Ate lunch and dinner here while in Ella. Really busy place, full of tourists - but sometimes this is ok, especially when the food is good! Nice pizzas, good cakes, wasn't mad on the fish and chips. Good wifi too!

Excellent food! Clean, cosy, perfect wifi, cool atmosphere, an endless menu and whatever you pick you'll get delicious food (which is slightly more expensive than at other places but definitely worth it).

It was one best restaurants in Sri Lanka we visited for dinner. The atmosphere there is unique, first place we we waited for table which is quite funny in the middle of a village. Great food, reasonable prices, great professional staff...

Great atmosphere, good music, delicious drinks and chilled people and environment. Probably, the only nice bar in Ella to have some drinks.

Clean, cosy and with a wide array of dishes (maybe a little too wide). Would recommend the local dishes and the shakes/juices. The tables next to the road is a bit to close to the trafic - exhaust, so we preferred the tables in the back area with the open kitchen.

All the food looked good. My chicken curry came with rice, dhal, okra, coconut sambol, aubergine curries etc..and was very enjoyable.My wife had the fish which she enjoyed. Best place in town? 10 out of 10 from us.

Nice little cafe in the middle of the "strip". Feels a bit like Thailand in the late 90s minus the Wifi and the big flatscreens. Food was ok, but not great. Presentation and service was good. Make sure you sit in the back, the front is very dusty.
