“best place to eat in Ella”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

This place was very good for food and they did the best milkshake I had in Sri Lanka. They also have nice mojitos. There is a nice lounge area upstairs with bean bags to chill out after climbing Ella Rock.
The service can be slow but then this is the same everywhere in Sri Lanka.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

It's a good restaurant with a nice vibe. There are a lot of tourists here, but it's a great place. They have some western and local food, it's a good mix. I had a curry, and it was really tasty. The staff is very friendly. The restaurants had an electrical breakdown but the staff had some lights. Upstairs there is an area to drinks something with beanbags. It's a good place to relax and enjoy the free wi-fi.

“Try the Mojito”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Good drinks, slower service with a few TVs to watch some sports after being isolated on the beaches!

New upstairs part is small but beanbags to relax as the sun goes down.
