This hotel is beautiful with much of its colonial heritage preserved. The four of us along with my 2 year old arrived for dinner and were greeted by a phalanx of waiters at the top of the stairs.
We were promptly shown to a table, and the requisite baby chair was presented before my l'il dictator could protest. They have a very limited main menu with only 3 main courses to select from - lamb, chicken or Sri Lankan option.
I ordered the calamari salad to start - this was the worst calamari salad I had ever had. The pieces of calamari sparsely populated a meagre bed of wilted lettuce. The calamari itself was rubbery and covered in an extremely heavy batter.
My main course of lamb rack was perfectly cooked a medium rare with an herb sauce and proved to be the polar opposite of my starter. The lamb was well-seasoned and tender. A divine dish!
The rest of my party opted for the Sri Lankan option which was excellent when compared to other Sri Lankan curries sampled during our fortnight there.
The availability of premium spirits, good service, the delightful ambience and a killer espresso did make for an excellent dinner.
They also do a delightful high tea - a more perfect setting for this most English of traditions I cannot imagine.
