The restaurant is uniquely designed in an enticing atmosphere that takes pride in the caliber of cuisine it provides. You can try the best of different flavors from talented chefs.

Bicycle Part Tree
The four-storey staircase needed a sculpture that would extend from the main lobby right through to the height of the building for guests to see. A recycle tree was commissioned to exhibit the value of recycled material and the crows perching on the tree summarized the major components of the design’s philosophy.
I was very impressed with this unique art design.
To conclude, my stay at Colombo Courtyard was somewhat an amazing experience. The hospitality, amenities, food and wine, and the design features of this impeccable hotel were nothing short of grand. Although there was a USD 2.50 Carbon Neutral charge that was added to the bill, it was insignificant considering how good the cause was.
