Had late lunch here. Warm welcome, host happy to find us table away from smokers. Large menu. We had Western and Sri Lankan food. Both were of good quality and the portions generous. It was quite busy and had a great atmosphere.

Decent restaurant, friendly staff and clearly very popular with tourists. Food is of a good quality but mainly seemed to cater to western tastes. Steady performer but wouldn't necessarily recommend if you're looking for something more authentic.

We went on the barefoot very comfy rooftop. Cheap beers, original cocktails and the staff is very nice. Good local and international food!

My wife and I ate here on two consecutive nights. I can't fault the place. It has a real social vibe, nearly everyone is a tourist/traveller passing through Ella, a real european community where you can hear fellow europeans tell tales over beers and cocktails....More

You know the place is good when there's a queue to get inside. The restaurant is a lot bigger than it's appearance from the front. Portions were hearty, service was good and the food was tasty.. what more would you want!

This is the place to be in Ella - packed with people with lovely cocktails and delicious food. The menu is western so there’s limited choice for Sri Lankan food, which is a shame. The local food that they do serve is yummy regardless.

Really nice food here. Rammed full of westerners. I can recommend the 10 curry dish in the banana leaf. Reasonable price. A little bit more expensive than the surrounding places.

We have moved on from Ella so I don't know what they are planning in terms of music but I would say that this is a great place in Ella to celebrate New Years.
