So there's a new contender for ice cream in town. Not only is it a visually exciting experience it's also done really well
Colombo 7's newest hotel rooftop bar, at Jetwing's first ever Colombo property.
A spot that does some solid short eats.

One of Colombo's seediest underground clubs.
Words cannot describe this experience. Only tears.
Cafe On The 5th has been a local favourite for years, serving tasty food in a comfortable al fresco style atmosphere. Their quality has taken a nose-dive recently, though.
Just ok to chill with some booze.
Mirage Colombo's restaurant with Chef Lloyd's signature pizza, fish and chips and intercontinental fare.

You must think twice before go!

The cabanas thatched with coconut leaves at the Havi Restaurant make a beautiful setting that only gets more amazing as the evening lights come on. With the greenery all around you, this is a good place…
When it comes to value for money, The Station is pretty difficult to beat. They tick all the right boxes with their ambience, service and food.
If you make it to the north side, Flag And Whistle is a well-appointed space with a view of the port. They do hearty but expensive German fare.
