Is a meal just about the food? Not at these four restaurants. A dining experience here offers more than just a burst of flavours; it also comes with captivating vistas of Sri Lanka’s picturesque landscapes:
Panorama Restaurant, Kandy
You get more than tasty fare at Panorama; a dining experience here also provides an absolutely delicious view of the Mahaweli River and surrounding mountain range. A widespread selection of food, served buffet style, ensures that there is something for everyone. Choices are aplenty here, ranging from Asian cuisines, such as Indian, Thai and Chinese, to Italian and French dishes. There’re also separate sections for diners seeking healthy fare, pasta dishes, crisp salads or grilled delights.
If you’re a big fan of barbecued fare, make Panorama your go-to place for a feast on Satudays – that’s when the restaurant holds it BBQ special nights. On lazy Sundays, pop by over for a leisurely brunch – walk-in day packages here provide free access to the pool, a selection of beverages at no cost, as well as other promotional discounts.

Wijaya Beach Restaurant, Galle
Wijaya Beach Restaurant offers a winning combination of sweeping beach views, delectable Asian and European dishes, friendly service and great vibes. Spend a leisurely afternoon here wriggling your toes in the sand as you savour your meals, and gaze on as turtles swim up to the surface for air. The well-thought-out menu ensures that there’s something for everyone; go for the king prawn curry if you have a preference for local dishes, or order a portion of the wholesome prawn and avocado salad if you’re in a salubrious mood.
Make sure you don’t miss out on the excellent wood-fired pizzas – we heard that the feta, bacon and avocado pizza is a winner. The coastal views and breezy setting makes the restaurant a great spot for sipping sundowners, so why not arrive in the early evening to enjoy a margarita or two before dinner?
