Bars Cafe

24 Deal Place
Colombo 3.
Tel: 94-11-2575157

It’s an unassuming place during the day, but at night when the trees outside Bars are adorned with Christmas lights, you want to take a second look. And it’s worth taking more than just a second look.

This relaxed café overlooking Duplication road offers great food for very reasonable prices. One wonders how it even survives. With the exception of a few tables inside the air-conditioned section, most seating is outdoors. When the traffic is busy on Duplication road, therefore, quiet conversation can be difficult.

The menu choice is expansive and includes curries, stews, pizzas, and wraps. Alcohol is not served, but the fresh fruit juices offered are probably a better choice for a typical humid evening in Colombo. The food is well presented, but service is slow.

This is a place where you find excellent value for money, and you won’t be going home with a dent in your wallet.
