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.

My friend and I had dinner at Cafe Chill, and it did not disappoint! The food was absolutely amazing - bursting with flavor and cooked to perfection. We both loved everything we ordered, but a special shout out goes to their incredible cheesecake - a...must-try for any dessert lover! The atmosphere at Cafe Chill is also fantastic - relaxed and inviting. Just be aware that it can get quite crowded, so I recommend reserving a table in advance, especially if you're traveling with a group.More

We absolutely loved our visits to Cafe Chill during our time in Ella! The food was delicious every single time, and the staff, especially Rasika, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and taken care of. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere!

Don't bother going to any other place in Ella. You will always end up at Chill. There is a reason the other places are empty and Chill is always, always packed.

Great spot to eat in Ella. All types of food but good quality and well made Sri Lanka food which you don't usually expect from a restaurant that seems a bit touristy. I recommend. Our waiter did a very nice job, super helpful, thanks Rasika!

Really interesting food. Try the sweet potato chips, Quebec poutine, mighty beef, chill Caesar, Banana fritters, and anything that sounds interesting, probably is bound to be. You have got to try ‘Ella Mule’ too. Great ambience compared to so many places on the stretch. Roma...- our server was fantastic. Loved it and great value for money.More

We visited on 3.04.2024 and we had to wait more than a hour for the table . However Mr. Vidal took a good care of us and accommodated us till we received the table . After getting the table we ordered the 1. Lump rice...and 2. Margarita pizza . Drinks - passion mojito and pinacolada . Let me say all the things are just awesome . Special thanks to Mr. Vidal and Mr. Yoga (chef) . Ultimate place with an ultimate experience . The total bill stood around Rs 2500/- for two adults and child .lovely place to hang out and spend time with a lovely music .More

Every dish is between 800 and 1200 LKR. Some dishes (such as a Norwegian salmon) might cost 1800 LKR. We chose local dishes only.
