But not great. We had pizza & a salad. The pizzas were reasonable, the salad was very average. We had a bottle of Aussie wine, which was fine. It cost about $ 65 AUD, which is expensive for Sri Lanka.

We needed lunch after visiting Mackfords on the way back to the railway station. Our driver suggested here and after seeing the two excellent TA reviews we said yes.

We were cruising around the town of Nuwara Eliya in Sri Lanka tired and hot from a morning of touring aimlessly when we happened upon this brasserie along side Lake Gregory. The external appearance in no way actually represents the value and quality of the menu inside. The place gives every appearance of a "local" hangout and indeed there was... More
