Fine dining restaurant at the Hilton Colombo serving European cuisine with an open-kitchen concept. It wasn't busy at all the Saturday night my wife and I dined there.

The restaurant's not so big and is dimly lit. The ambience is nice (even romantic) for a sit-down dinner especially if you get a corner table facing the garden.

The restaurant's expensive. But the taste and quality of the food served was very good. The menu offers little variety. If you are looking for chicken, you only have one option. But the menu offers good selection for vegetarians. Seafood dishes are expensive.

The bread tasted good but could've been softer and warmer. The main course dish (wine-braised chicken) we ordered was filling. The appetizer and dessert were delicious.

The mocktails we ordered were a bit of a disappointment. The fresh fruit punch was more of a sugar-free papaya juice than a mocktail.

Service was professional and good but the staff could be more attentive.

The food is good but nothing extraordinary. Its standard 5 star hotel restaurant fare. Good for functions, cocktail parties but not somewhere I'd especiialy go for a dinner.

The menu is smaller than what it used to be. I guess they have narrowed it down to stick to what they are good at.
Pros :
Excellent service, as it always is at the hilton
Extensive wine list. Directly from the main restaurant cellar
Great decor and atmosphere
Open kitchen concept.

Prices are reasonable but do not they don't include any of the taxes, so you can expect the final amount to go up by about 25-30%
The place is never too busy so reservations are not necessary, unless they have some private function going on.

One of the best restaurant's I've been to. Service is amazing, you need only attempt to call. The food is perfect, I tried the Australian Lamp Trio, it just melted in my mouth. The staff is well trained and they make you feel very comfortable. I loved every minute I spent in this restaurant. Definitely recommend this to anyone who would like a fine dining experience in Sri Lanka.
