Its a good choice for a peaceful beer in the evening. I used to be a regular when I was working in Dematagoda. After a hectic day at work this was the best place to have a peaceful beer and relax with friends

We visited the Precinct as part of a tour and found it quite interesting. Considered to be the oldest building in the Colombo fort, the hospital was built by the Dutch and was only used to treat Dutch patients. Now it is an area with shops and restaurants. It was interesting to learn which shop used to be the morgue and where the wards used to be. We had a bit of a wander around and did some shopping but I would have liked to try some of the restaurants.

The history of the place may be exciting to some but now it’s just a strip mall. There are some neat shops in there to buy some gifts but you can find the same shops in nearby shopping malls. Spa Ceylon was nice only because I could sit while my girl shopped. Is it worth a special trip to go there ? Well, our hotel was close by so we walked there otherwise I would say not. We were going to eat at Ministry of Crab but there were so many bad reviews we opted for somewhere else. Beware the aggressive tuk tuk drivers. Some will cheat you

We have been a couple of times to this place, and every time found out a very “boring” place! Firstly, there are not many choices in anything, secondly whatever there are extremely expensive! Just a Cappuccino Coffee was more than Rs.300 which is a crazy prize, more than in a 5* hotel in Sri Lanka. With regard to cloths, fashion hardly anything! It is not worth to go there at all! Only the building is historical which is worth to see!
