We visited Cafe Chill just for a few drinks and ended up staying for dinner too. Drinks are really good and reasonably priced and food is good too.

There were 9 of us. We enjoyed the Lumpres and all the recommended food. Superb. However, their services need to buck-up. We were seated upstairs near the bar counter. The staff were too playful, something to note and not to be taken granted for.

One of the few places in Ella that is consistently packed with people. This place is better for its western choices that local delights. The Sri Lankan menu was very disappointing and overpriced. The western menu was slightly better. O

We have moved on from Ella so I don't know what they are planning in terms of music but I would say that this is a great place in Ella to celebrate New Years.
