This place was recommended and apparently they do cooking classes in the morning which I would of loved if I had stayed another night. The dreadlocks waiter was a lot of fun and the passionfruit juice was delicious as was the Lump Rice - my son and I loved it, one of our most favourite meals in Sri Lanka, however,... More

It's not a small place as it looks from the entrance. There is plenty of room and quite many tables. Kitchen can be seen and is looking nice and clean. Staff is smiling and understanding. Very good food and very good variety of food - free wi-fi which is working - prices are absolutely acceptable and we can recommend this... More

Eat here. It's a little pricey, but the food is excellent and the vibe is, like it says, 'chill'. The service is quite good and they're not pushy like other places around town.

We ate here several times and each time was a delight. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was some of the tastiest we had in our whole time in Sri Lanka. I wish I could have stayed in Ella longer purely to sample more on the menu.

Its a really lovely place, with Some Nice cocktails, good employees And Nice music. We ordered just one hamburger to Share, because it was late in the evening. We both became very sick!!! They dont have electricity during the day, so how can they cool all the meat?! Just for a drink or vegetable food its a really Nice place.

Although a little expensive and touristy this café/restaurant is a lovely, interseting place to go and the staff and owner were very friendly and welcoming.

We visited in the afternoon after a hot and sticky walk to Little Adams Peak and sat upstairs on the beanbags with excellent smoothies and amazing mint iced tea! Then returned later for dinner, perfect place to spend a rainy evening, really good burgers and best mojito I've had for a while, the passionfruit one was especially good. Great atmosphere... More
