Worth going up for a beer during happy hour (£2 for a large Lion) to see the view. Would not recommend eating here- think you can find better food elsewhere.

Crowded at night with tourists, victims of their popularity due to scarce similar offer in Kandy. Upscale hotels would have similar bar selection but away from city centre. Neighbouring "Pubs" are in comparison mere beer and arrack dispensing facilities with neglected food selection.

A very nice view of Kandy if you sit near the balcony area. Good selection of food and drink and a lovely atmosphere.

Difficult to find but definitely worth the search! Great view over the city. Also hamburgers etc for the kids on the menu, so everybody was happy!

This restaurant is just a bit outside of the centre and placed on a rooftop. They have a big balcony where you can sit outside. Prices are ok, food quality excellent! Staff very friendly and helpful. Try the sizzling fish or beef!

Slightly Chilled was a nice surprise/little gem. Do not let the entrance/area trick you. Terrace overlooking Kandy Lake, Nice food and service. We asked our server for a recommendation and had some nachos to start, sizzling beef and aubergine curry/salad for main. Everything taste delicious!...More
