As the review suggests, bringing French cuisine to the Colombo food scene isn't an easy task, but I'm pleased to say that Cafe Francais never disappoints. The attention to detail and sophisticated techniques that make French cuisine the definition of fine dining are respected by the chefs without pricing dishes out of the Colombo upscale segment. In addition, the portions are more generous than those of many French restaurants I've eaten at in Europe and the decor is very tasteful making for an elegant atmosphere yet sans stuffiness. Lastly, the bar serves up some of the best cocktails and drinks in Colombo, with a nice view onto the lively Park Street Mews.
