Bayleaf is a very pleasant restaurant priced below the five star fine diners, and with lovely outdoor garden seating which is much nicer than being inside in the AC. Service usually very good, although sometimes a little slow.

One day the staff are attentive, the next day you have to go looking for them.
Since the 'new' chef has joined they're obviously concentrating on the portion sizes which have decreased dramatically.
It could be a romantic evening as long as the staff where discreetly attentive & fellow dinners didn't have their children running amuck throughout to which the staff seem to pay no attention.
It's more atmospheric outside than in the a/c rooms upstairs.

Have visited this place on a number of occasions both for business and with friends and each time it has impressed with thefood, the service and overall ambience. The Pizza is great and Pasta, probably the best you could find in town. A wonderful experience

Very tasty, portion size very good. Food ordered was a mix of pasta and a sort of seafood mixed grill. Food came in about 45 minutes. Service good. Only fault was the mosquitoes and this in a closed air conditioned room. May have been due to the half dead crab claw flowers in the vase in the room.

The food was bland, service slow and staff not friendly. There are so many other places to go for fine dining, but this place is definitely not it. It is over priced. Heck, even places in western countries don't rob like this with such quality of food. The management must think that money grows on trees in sri lanka.
