The Villa Café

Located at ‘The Villa’, a serendipitous retreat on the coast of Bentota, ‘The Villa Café’ arrays Continental and Sri Lankan gastronomic delights, as well as, dreamy desserts.

The Menu

Well-versed in culinary literature, the menu encapsulates many a sophisticated flavour - from Italy’s fresh and subtle seasonings, to Sri Lanka’s sunny spice combinations. Highlighted in the starter selections are seafood delights, such as Baked Crab, Prawn Cocktail and Battered Calamari. An array of health-giving Salads offers the Mediterranean Chicken, Mixed Green and Tuna Nicoise - their very names, a tonic. From Sri Lankan Crab and Chicken Mulligatawny, to Gazpacho and Sweet Pumpkin, each Soup is an orchestra of flavour.

Perfecting tantalizing meat-prepping traditions, this restaurant in Bentota lays out succulent meat delicacies like Tandoor Chicken, Lemon and Ginger Chicken, Roast Pork and Lamb Cutlets. From Lobster and Prawn Fettuccine, Grilled Darne of Seer and Masala Prawn, to Sri Lankan Crab Curry and Coconut Crusted Barramundi Fillet - the bounty of the ocean is woven with mouthwatering flavours. Sri Lanka’s culinary gem, Rice, is accompanied by vibrant curry offerings, including the Black Pork, Cashew and Dhal, as well as, Gotukola Sambol (pennywort salad) and Mango Chutney. Pizza choices feature the Mushroom and Parmesan, Salami and Bell Peppers and Smoked Salmon Pizza.

This elegant café at ‘The Villa’ turns out many indulgent desserts, the likes of Lemon Meringue Pie, Chocolate Mousse, Homemade Ice Cream and Banana Fritters. Giving evergreen western dessert recipes, a delicious twist with Jaggery, the exotic cane sugar, this multi-cuisine restaurant crafts Jaggery Crème Brulee and Jaggery Sundaes.

The Experience

Housed inside a gorgeous pavilion within the palm-sprinkled premises of ‘The Villa’, this coastal dining retreat combines sophistication and relaxation. Whilst the main hall is tastefully appointed with elegant seating areas, an al fresco dining space is placed between the beachside mangroves and the villa’s private garden. By night, ‘The Villa Café’ is the scene of candle-lit dinners that are the epitome of romance.

As you dine by the mangroves, big stars shine over the silent beach. A train rumbles in the distance; its rhythm, a dream of a sound…
