Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

After our hike at Little Adams peak, we stumbled upon Cafe Eden. Glad we did because our chicken curry lamprais was amazing and service was excellent!

Very nice and clean place with delicious food and drinks. We had rice lump, chicken and chicken burger: all were very good. And the home made ice teas were exceptionally nice. Don’t hesitate to go.

Unfortunately our experience was not good. Went there on friday 1st march. We ordered a drink, cheese toastie, and a sri lankan main meal. It was a quiet evening and apart from us, there was just one other couple dining. Our drink and cheese toastie...arrived, then we waited. And waited and waited. After 45min of waiting, we asked the waiter where our food is. He looked surprised, and said we only ordered a drink and toastie! God knows why he didn’t ask us during the 45min if we wanted anything! When I reminded him what we ordered he checked and it turns out that he forgot to place the order! Quite the surprise as there was barely anyone else dining. There were many ants walking around the floor too. Not sure what all the positive reviews are all about.More

Super small quiet restaurant just a short walk away from bustle of Main Street in Ella. Very good welcome and service. Excellent passion fruit mojito, lime mojito, the crushed ice is made with bottled water. Good choice meals. We had pumpkin soup with garlic bread...which was really nice. Then battered prawns which were really big moment of them, prawn and egg kottu which was delicious, rice and curry, very nice and chicken pizza, all freshly cooked to order. Including drinks and two courses for 4 people whole thing only came to about £30. Really clean place highly recommend. Wi-Fi free.More

A nice little restaurant in Ella, simple settings but clean. Staff were attentive, helpful and service was excellent. The menu included a good variety of vegetarian dishes too. I had the Crispy mushroom burger (as I fancied a balance to the traditional curry). In terms...of presentation and taste, it was impeccable moreover the price was unbeatable for fresh, hearty, quality ingredients. Amazing food and service to match.More

A must try in Ella! We had the "Special Lamprais" 🤤 The waiters are very friendly and the food is so delicious! About 1 km from Ella Centre, easy to do a little walk 😉
