Unwind in the elegant ambience at Water Garden Café

Lion Royal Tourisme, travel agency specialised in Sri Lanka and Maldives opened its first restaurant at McCallum Lock Gate. The restaurant is the latest attraction in Colombo which offers a gamut of food and a location to relax, talk and enjoy beautiful views of the Beira Lake.

This historical location is known as the McCallum Lock Gate that comprises a bridge over a set of lock gates connecting east Beira lake and the Colombo harbour. Built between the years 1951 by the Colombo Public Works Department to facilitate barge traffic between ships docked in the harbour and ports on the Kelani River, the venue brings nostalgic memories of an era filled with grandeur.

The Water Garden Café comprises a restaurant that mainly specialises in seafood, sprawling area for corporate or private events with ample parking. Surrounded by many city hotels and places of recreation including five-star hotels, the water gate can be considered as an out-of-hotel experience to tourists who yearn to explore Colombo.

Lion Royal Tourisme’s first ever venture in the restaurant sector will bring them to Colombo’s list of preferred restaurants and promises a novel experience to those who chose to patronise.
