High quality shops and restaurants in a very historic building. Well restored walls and roof but don't expect to learn more. Enjoy the shopping and a drink.

With a number of nice restaurants, a few jewellery shops, a spa and 3 handicraft shops, there isnt much in terms of variety. Takes about half hour to see. However, LuvSL and Barefoot are 2 shops which must be visited in the building for souveneirs and handicrafts. The building is also home to the Ministry of Crab. Also in the... More

Columbo is desperate. Walked here along foreshore looking for something to eat. It's an ok building but there's no vibe. Not much to do

really very well transformed. U can imagine it as a Old hospital in dutch era.. I guess they have not changed it much ... Very expensive shops and hotels inside. Clean & tidy.

Surprising but looks really artistic for a shopping enclave. Located in the premium location with some of the best Colombo Restaurants, its a place to visit in Colombo. its very near to the sea and hotels like taj and grand cinnamon. Entry is free of cost and all shops here are premium. Gives you an ambience of portugese areas.

We recently visited here whilst visiting Colombo for just a day and thought it would be worth a visit, there wasn't any big sign to say what it was and you could've easily of missed it, it was nice inside, a quiet courtyard with 2 restaurants and a cafe, along with a shop which was closed... Just seemed a bit... More

Went here with my partner. There are a few nice restaurants around however they are extremely expensive by Sri Lankan standards. There is a gift shop which is also expensive. Not much else to do here. If you want to pay 10 times the amount of money then go here otherwise galle face green is just a short 10 minute... More
