food budget

Can anyone give me an idea of how much to allow for food.Will be touring around and bed and breakfast always provided and also dinner when at Chaaya Village.

As we will be out I presume will be eating wherever is handy at the time but I have no idea of prices.Do not eat big meals or require alcohol but if anyone could give me a rough idea I would be grateful.

Here is a rough guide to food costs but like everywhere else, prices vary according to where you are eating. In general eating out in Sri Lankan restuarants is not expensive by western standards:

Meal costs:

Tourist hotel dinner buffet Rs. 1200 – 1500

Lunch in mid range restaurant Rs. 250 – 400

Dinner in mid range restaurant Rs. 400 – 700

(Not including alcohol)

Calculate at approx Rs. 160 to the £1 (May 2010)
