Good spot for a stop if you're on your way to Dambulla and beyond. The area is spacious with a conference room in a separate version of a building suitable for office luncheons and meetings. We went there for lunch and I enjoyed the food very much. Within the premises you'll find the owner's dogs, some cute chickens and even... More

Stopped here for lunch with friends .... Two of us shared one rice and fish curry. This was excellent value for money as we could not even finish it. Very tasty without being too spicy. Lots of variety in the vegetables. However my friends were not so fortunate as their order of cuttle fish was quite hard and dry. Service... More

We stopped by here for lunch after visiting the gorgeous Dambulla Cave Temple. We thought it was closed for the day, and we were about to leave when the manager came out. That was really fortunate as we had an outstanding rice and curry meal. The food was aromatic and tasty and the service friendly.

Although this is a guest house and restaurant I did not stay overnight and only had lunch in the restaurant. It was good. Roadside tourist restaurants all seem to be similar. Menu items are the same and the local buffet has similar dishes. The place was clean and the grilled cheese with fries and a Fanta came to about $8... More

Located in the A9 main road (Kandy - Jaffna) in Dambulla, J.C's Village is a an extraordinary place full of great people, great food and great atmosphere. You'll feel almost like home, for sure. The signature guava juice is exceptional.

We stayed at jc village for 2 nights during our sri lanka trip. The rooms werevery clean and nice. Nice cool swimming pool. The restaurant was really good with very nice service. I had the best deviled chicken so far. The whole familie enjoyed the atmosphere. If you look for something close to the temple rock choose this.

We were brought to this restaurant at the recommendation of our guide. It's a clean and spacious restaurant with friendly waiter. While waiting for our food to be served, I walked around taking photos of their vintage cars and poultry. One of the waiter saw me busy photo-shooting & led me to their backyard where an owl & indian crested... More
