レストランは朝食ビュッフェ、夕食ビュッフェともにクオリティが高く、 妻も私も大満足でした。 最終日は飛行機の都合で5時チェックアウトで朝食ビュッフェは利用できませんでしたが、事前に相談したらパンと果物とヨーグルトと水をパッキングしてくれました。 地下のカフェスペースのコーヒーやトリュフチョコもとても美味しかったです。 レストランで部屋用のお水を購入しようと、ボトルウォーターを頼んだら、 部屋からHousekeepingにコールすればComplementaryで無料でいくらでももらえるよ、と教えてくれた点も親切でした。 Both breakfast buffet and dinner buffet restaurant are high in restaurant, My wife and I were very satisfied. The breakfast buffet was not available at the check-out at 5 o'clock on the last day due to the plane's convenience, but when we consulted in advance we packed bread, fruits, yogurt and water. Coffee in... More

One of four restaurants in the Cinnamon Lakeside Hotel, the dining room has incredible, affordable buffets at every meal. Each meal had close to 100 selections -- from beverages to salads to entrees and desserts. Breakfast had an egg station and another for pancakes. Lots of fresh fruit and juices. The dinner buffet can be the entire assortment or, very... More

Excellent food, fantastic friendly service. Nothing is too much trouble. Good value. It is always well organised whether you are a single person or with a party of friends. Visit for 40 people was well organised with seating all together

The Dining room has an amazing buffet at night. The spread is fabulous across multiple cuisines and is quite reasonable at 3300 LKR considering the hotel and the quality on offer.

I have always been a big fan of Cinnamon lakeside buffet, but what a shock it was when we attended a 2 day workshop in February! The food (mostly) was terrible. The Thai (which was excellent in October 2016) could hardly be recognised as Thai. The Italian (the calzone- best in Colombo) was a horrible shadow of the previous. The... More

It was a well balanced Exotic buffet, perfect for a food lover. Starters to Desserts are delicious. Mouth watering mains. Service also impressive. Worthy Visit.

The Dining Room at the Cinnamon Lakeside is open 24/7 and offers both à la carte and buffet (breakfast, lunch and dinner are served). The buffet food is of good quality and consists of a scrumptious range of food, both locally and continental. The same applies to the à la carte food. Especially the buffet desserts are quite special. The... More

Great variety of various dishes to suit the palates of every nationality. Staff was great with a professional touch from F & B Supervisor Mrs. Samadhi and Chef de Partie Mr. Hettiarachi and team. It is also the ideal choice restaurant for breakfasts with great varieties of foods for every nationality.
