There is a great variety of food as well as a fixed menu. Everything was fresh and tasty. Probably one of the best breakfast buffets on our trip. Everything from eggs to order, waffles, pancakes, Indian food, great banana bread - if you want it they have it. Only ate breakfast here.

At Rs1975 per person for the buffet dinner, this was exceptional value. Quality and range of dishes was terrific. Ate here twice. Breakfast also amazing, we were tempted to sit outside near the pool, but even in the early morning, the insects were a nuisance so opted for the air conditioned inside space overlooking the pool so we still had...

Waiters and management are clueless. Am currently waiting for a beer ordered 15 mins ago. The restaurant is empty. Wrong wine has already been delivered to the table. On Half board so may have to eat here again but room service beckons.

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.
