The Terrace

In an old-world heritage hotel in Mount Lavinia, scented by the hole-and-corner love story of a British governor and a local mestizo dancer, an al fresco restaurant sits by the poolside, lapping up views of windy, white-capped oceans.

The Menu

‘The Terrace’ at the ‘Mount Lavinia Hotel’ is an affable gathering place; combining good food with a wind-swept tropical ambiance. A scrumptious snack collection offers up the likes of local-spiced Roasted Cashew Nuts, crispy-fried Parippu Vadai, tomato chili sauce-tossed Devilled Pork, sautéed capsicum-flanked Calamari and cosy Cheese Toasts. Warm Soups are kettled out alongside freshly-baked bread and butter. Crispy bacon tumbles into crunchy greens and parmesan in the Classical Caesar Salad while chicken, cucumber, tomato and bean sprouts meet a ginger-soy dressing in the Thai Cobb Salad.

Grilled ham and cheese-centric Croque Monsieurs, three-layered Mount Clubs, beef fillet-based Sir Ashby Open Steak Sandwiches and Tandoori Chicken Melts are served with their best mate, Chunky Fries. Pollo Alla Funghi, Margarita, Capricciosa and Fruitti Di Mare Pizzas, as well as, Char Grilled Chicken Breast and Mediterranean Tuna Panini encapsulate the creative culinary spirit of Italy. Mini Chicken and Crabby Burgers are presented on sesame buns. Sri Lankan favourites, such as Onion Relish Buns and Spicy Pork Hotdogs are also on the cards.

Sweetening your moments, the dessert menu crafts up tropical concoctions like Bibikkan (coconut cake), Watalappan (coconut custard pudding) and Curd with Treacle, as well as, dreamy western delights including Crème Brulee and Choco and Praline Domes.

The Experience

Lazing alongside the pool, ‘The Terrace’ sets the scene for wind-kissed breakfasts, sun-steeped lunches, twilight cocktails and star-spangled dinners. On gracious evenings - pink and orange sunsets melt into the brine, taking diners’ cares far away. Come the night time, live music blends into the soft croon of the sea, creating a dreamy atmosphere.

As you sip on a citrus-infused sundowner, sea breezes purr softly about you. The fire of sunset, in crimson and orange…
