Food, service, ambiance are all fantastic! Traditional Sri Lankan dishes are delicious as are the European/ American options. Reasonably priced too for good quality food. Grab a beanbag upstairs for ultimate relaxation! Our favourite restaurant in Ella!

Nice restaurant with very good service. After visiting already Galle, Tangalla and Arugam Bay it was the first restaurant run professionally with very attentive service by Dinesh. We had a curry in a bananaleave which was delicious.

A very nice welcome on arrival. A very varied menu from typical English Fare to European foods and Sri Lankan cuisine. The service was efficient and once food had been ordered it came relatively quickly. A great atmosphere and very busy.

We turned up after a traumatic train journey, grabbed a cold beer and loved the vibe straight away. So much so that we returned again and again for lunch and evening meals. Special shout out to Chanchala our waiter. :))

This restaurant in Ella offers you a very good meal for a good price. We were served by Rasika, a nice guy with great hospitality. We can give you a positive advise.

We have moved on from Ella so I don't know what they are planning in terms of music but I would say that this is a great place in Ella to celebrate New Years.
