We had lunch here as the Ministry of Crab was full, as seems to be usual.

Only had to wait a very short time for a table inside. Good service, good food.

We had the surf and turf and both thought it was really good to the extent that if this restaurant was back home and at those prices, we would be frequenting it often!

The old dutch building in which this restaurant is housed has heaps of character and just the ambiance alone is enough to put you into a relaxed mood during a hot mid day in Colombo. It has high ceilings , tall windows and an impressive bar counter that stretches almost across the length of the restaurant.

The chairs rock and are in need of urgent repairs before they crash under the weight of a heavy person. The staff are friendly and the food and drinks come quite fast. Food is rather reasonably priced at around a thousand bucks per main inclusive of the 30% that gets added on to the menu prices. But most dishes are drenched with sweet sauce and therefore they all taste the same.

They serve good Draft beer at around Rs. 300/- + a mug. This is also one of the few Colombo restaurants that carry imported German beers and the prices are very good too. A Bitburger is under Rs.1,000/- even with all the taxes and charges. The Bavarian German Restaurant charges at least 50% more for such Beers. and most other places including some of the five star hotels have only the standard local beers and the few common brands of imported beer.

The atmosphere at night is eerie and not as nice as during the day and on weekend nights, service as well as the atmosphere is quite chaotic

Colombo fort cafe is located opposite to the World trade center. Atmosphere is great. I ordered Veggie Lovers Delight along with King coconut with green tea for my lunch. It's really yummy!

I will consider it for my upcoming trip to Colombo.
