11 Outdoor Cafes/Restaurants in Colombo.

Dining outside with the sun shining or a breeze blowing on your face is sometimes preferable to dining in an air-conditioned café or restaurant. The cafes and restaurants listed below have just the right ambience for you to enjoy solitary bliss or good company. It allows you to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, even if only for a short time.

Barefoot Garden Cafe

Found in Colombo 3, right off Galle Road, The Barefoot Café receives nothing but praises from everyone who has visited. A mini oasis in Colombo providing good vibes and good food. It is also a major tourist hot spot and I have to agree, I cannot see a reason why no one would want to visit.

704, Galle Road, Colombo 3.

Forty Seven Spice

The Avenue

The Avenue is gorgeous with an indoor bar and the majority of its seating lies outside, creating a refreshing change. All lit up in the night with its twinkly lights, it sets the perfect set-up for a romantic dinner or a fun family night. Either way, the good food, and good company can both be enjoyed here.
