3.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web
Stroll around the old commercial and administrative heart of the city, Colombo Fort. Attractions in the area include the president's house, general post office, Colombo Harbor, and the Dutch hospital complex. Gazing out on the water, you'll see a floating mosque seemingly rising from the sea. The area mainly features old colonial buildings; however, the struggle between new and old reveals itself in the modern buildings slowly making their way among the existing architecture.

  • In the heart of Colombo find an old building amid the towering modern buildings. The fact that there is not much to see, but bkolombwa loodna we went through was a busy place and it is in the heart of the city and the sea and the building needs renovation. To exist near it tracked from door see history and walk up to many places but I hope the weather allows it.

  • Friendly welcome. Just I drink coffe here. It's very good. Nice place to spend time..
  • Average service average good for price , for a western style resteraunt they had no french fries available with my meal
  • this is the place normally i wen to my lunch.there foods are great and they offer good customer service too
  • Not much choice when it comes to selection of food items....somewhat over priced.. The burgers are kind of bland and mediocre, not exactly what you would expect from a cafe that is supposed to match up to international standards. The staff could try to be a bit more inviting and hospitable, service tends to be somewhat slow at times not really the place for a quick lunch.
  • Unless the lackluster waiters everything else is fine. It's a good thing that anyone can hang around as long as they want in the outside verandah.
