This is a very very expensive place to eat and to drink - when comparing to other places available in the city, like The Victory Hotel & Bar!!

We sat on the balcony each evening and had a drink before heading off for dinner. Like all the cafes and restaurants in Kandy they all suffer from a fair bit of neglect, but then that is part of the Sri Lankan experience. The balcony...More
