Great food, great service, good value

This place had a really fun vibe, and attracted lots of other travelers. This was backed up by very helpful stuff and tasty food......the 5-layer club sandwich is awesome if you need a break from the delicious curries! Cold beer and chilled music too.

We were recommended to eat here and were not disappointed. We are a family of four with a 11 and 16 year. They loved the food, do try the curry in banana leaf or devilled fish if you like hot food.

We were ever so pleased with this restaurant/bar as after 2 weeks it was the first place we found outside an hotel! Our hotel was directly in front of the Chill, so we went there for dinner. Food and drinks were really good and honestly priced. A good variety of options are on the menu, so the places caters for... More

Amazing taste, amazing ambiance, amazing variety of food. We loved everything we ordered from main dishes to drinks to desserts. Would have continued to have all our meals there if we were staying more in Ella !

This cafe is definitely designed for travellers, with an interesting decor and an open front to the street. There was a good selection on the menu but I opted for the traditional rice cooked in a banana leaf; while it may not look very appetising it was DELICIOUS ! The service however was very average.
