The warm reception we received on arriving at Earl's was an early indication of how good a time we were going to have there. Only a short walk away from Passikudah beach, this friendly and comfortable little hotel will serve you well.
Formerly known as Walkers Cafe, The Canteen hasn't changed much at all but their hoppers are excellent.
The Galle Face Hotel is one of Colombo's oldest, best known hotels, established in 1864. Over the years it's provided food and shelter to many a revered name: Yuri Gagarin, John D. Rockefeller, Prince Phillip and Richard Nixon, to name just a few. They've changed over the years and we decided to pop in to see how they're doing.
The Lattice at Taj is an informal business lounge situated on the right side of their expansive lobby as you enter. They're open from 9:00AM to 11:00PM and their Afternoon Tea session starts from 3:00PM to 6:00PM. They have an excellent menu and are reasonably priced.
Some tips from YAMU for the Colombo International Book Fair that we've gathered from extensive experience over many poorly executed excursions here over the years.

Panorama is a bar cum restaurant that we don't love as a restaurant, though we have heard good things about the bar. Come here at sunset for the view and don't be too picky about anything else.
From regulars like Nasi Goreng and Mee Goreng, this place also dishes out a pretty great beef rendang.
