Nice place. Nice people. Nice music. Nice experience. Our traditional dinner was great and also the sweets we took. Our breakfast was good and the coffe as well. Only good words about this place. I DO recommend it.

I had read a number of good reviews about Dream Cafe, however was a little underwhelmed by our experience. We went for dinner one night, breakfast another day. There was both local and western food ordered by our table. All meals were ok but we weren't blown away. Breakfast was the same. Staff were friendly, if not a bit slow...

The place is super crowded with Europeans during every meal time and its difficult to get a table. I was intrigued if the food is really great. But it turned out to e average, however service was quick and decent staff. A little pricey but I guess that's all of SL.

I came with 3 friends. It was very busy so we waited maybe 20 minutes for a table which was fine. We ordered food and drinks and drinks came about 20 minutes later but the food took more than an hour. It was very busy so kind of understandable but could see other tables getting annoyed. They gave us complimentary...

We had dinner one night here on our way from Kandy to Tissamaharama. Fantastic place. And if you have gotten a tad tired of "rice curry" you will get a great burger (with tasty meat) and yummy fish and chips. Friendly staff even on a VERY busy evening.

We stopped at Dream Cafe for a lunch while at Ella. The place was packed but the service was really quick and the staff was quite helpful. We tried local cuisine (rice and curry) and it was superb! The prices were quite reasonable as well. A definite recommendation.

We stopped by at the Dream Cafe fr lunch before we went up to our hotel (we were not staying at Dream Cafe, but at Heavens' Edge). Our tour operator had organised for vegetarian Sri Lankan Food. When we went there we realised that they serve Continental / Western cuisine too... Since our food was pre-ordered, we did not want...

Very friendly service (by Mangale, the best waiter in sri lanka!), good prices. We had a delicious tomato soup and panini, and the best steak I ever ate!!! Beautiful new built terrace, which makes a cosy athmosphere.

The standard place in Ella to go for English breakfast. The coffee that comes with the breakfast is weak so order a latte or cappuccino if you're a coffee lover. Also, the wraps for dinner are very good, both veg and non veg (the chicken was cooked perfectly).
