Best place ever to chill out and feel the vibe Nov 01, 2012
During the many times I stayed in Ella I spent most days at some point chilling at this chilled out cool place with restuarant attached. Downstairs is a juice and cocktail bar with funky seating where you can enjoy a smoothie or a tasty margaritta. The terraced area is ideal for people watching. They have high speed wifi good connections can be lacking in Sri Lanka. They have a coffee machine and serve cappucinno, latte and espresso. The boys make a mean cocktail super tasty and decent strength.

Upstairs is a further chill out area with beanbags relax here for sundowners and do some star gazing into the evening cause this is indeed the one place in Ella that does not close early .

The restaurant has an open kitchen always a plus when you dine as it is kept super clean and the chefs are well very cheffy! Food prices are extremely reasonably and there is a nice variety. They do have cookery classes demonstrating rice & curry but perhaps I will do that in another tip.

The staff are very helpful but the person who makes this place is the owner and manager Darsh he is the kind of guy who goes out of his way to make sure you have the best possible visit to Ella. He has many connections with the village and can arrange bike hire and much more, these days his staff will arrange everything for you.

If you are looking for a funky yet chilled out vibe then this is the place to be. The walls are filled with stunning murals painted by travellers who have passed through Ella. Chill out tunes and sometimes if there is an international event like the football world cup they will televise the event like when I was there.

Favorite Dish: From Sandwiches and wraps to Sri Lankan curries as well as the more westernised hamburgers, pizza and steak. Just about everything I have eaten here has been good.
