I feel like I’m taking crazy pills because everyone else in the reviews section seemed to have a different experience to me.
First of all the service was quite poor on the night we dined here. We had to ask three different members of staff to take our order: first one made eye contact then quickly looked away and pretended he didn’t see us, second one waved us away indicating he was busy (he walked off to chat with another staff member and they both hovered around a tray of coke for about 5 mins), finally had to ask the host to find us someone to take our order.

My burger was very average so I don’t think this place is known for its food either...so I’m quite confused about why it’s so popular.

Amazing place with a really cool top floor bar that allows a breeze through wherever you sit. The staff and overall service are a step up from anywhere else we’ve been in Sri Lanka. They do good curries as well as Western foods to satisfy any burger or pizza cravings!
We tried going to other places in Ella but kept coming back to Cafe Chill as it was just too good.
Highly recommend!

Dont be fooled by how it looks from street level. Head up to the top level and this place transforms into its name, if a treehouse has a rooftop bar. Areas for lounging, beanbags, high ceiling. This area takes you to another world. Shoes must be removed when you head upstairs.
Drinks and food were of average price (not cheap or expensive).
