Cool place for some relaxed drinks. Happy hour from 5-6. 350rp 500ml cans of lion and buy two, get one free cocktails. The food looks nice too but it's not the cheapest place to eat.

Came here based on reviews, Chinese food we ordered was very nice. The baked eggplant especially. Beers were reasonable too. Very busy with locals and tourists

Thanks for the nice review and also writing that we do get locals coming. We are not just a tourist pub like a lot of people write. In the high season a lot of locals do not come because it is too busy with tourists! Kind regards Michael More

We found this place by chance of reading a blog, about the best bar and food while in Kandy and have to agree with the writer about 'slightly chilled lounge' having the top spot ! You will never please 100 % of people who visit these places but SCL is doing a great job of pleasing 99% of its visitors... More

Although they have a whopping great sign on the building seen from around the lake, this place is not that easy to find when you get up close.Only 3 out of 10 tuk tuk drivers seem to understand enough to know where to take you. My wife and I are not spring chickens but we like to get around different... More

Went for dinner and it was decent enough food. Lots of backpackers there, loud music and a young scene. Reasonably priced beers. Wouldn't rave about it but nice views - don't try and walk there - it has a perilous winding and very dark and narrow road.

We were here for a few nights and it's really relaxing! Finally some cocktails!! They have happy hour from 5 - 6 pm (3 cocktails for two). Food is ok, actually maybe better than in many places in town. Don't walk around alone take a tuk-tuk! And special thanks to staff for saving us from monkey drinking our coffee and... More

A must visit when in Kandy. Great food, great location overlooking the entire city, casual, friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced. Menu is quite extensive with local and other Asian cuisines.

A short distance above the lake, good views and a welcome break from the traffic. Chinese food, good but not outstanding, 3 stars ish. The usual beers and cocktails. Lots of attentive and friendly staff. There are a few rooms for rent close by and it feels like more of a backpackers place, but enough older travellers to make it... More

A super casual place for some decent Chinese food and great views. Get the chicken gung bao- very good. The atmosphere is really casual but has a great vibe- like a backpacker's hangout which is why we liked it but it's not a fancy cocktail lounge if that is what you're looking for. The staff are great.
