  • Tree Tops, Kalutara

    Kalutara Restaurants

    A perfect place to eat, drink and relax as you look out over the Indian Ocean. Don't expect anything too fancy. This is really just a wooden platform in the trees. We had to wait about an hour for our meal (although this certainly isn't a problem with the view we had!). I think the young waiter had to go and buy the food once we had ordered it!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From the clock tower head down the hill towards the Temple, the Internet Cafe is on the left set back a little from the main road. Its cheap and during school hours (7.30pm to 1.30 pm) its pretty quiet.
