Anilana Wine & Dine

Home Style Family Dining


We look forward to preparing traditional, family meals for your group during your stay with us in Nuwara Eliya. We recommend that our guests talk to our Cook on arrival to finalise their preferred meal plan and give us adequate time to best prepare meals according to your preferences. Breakfast is provided free of charge, and includes Fresh tropical fruits, juices and eggs cooked any style with sausages, tomatoes and bacon. In addition, Cook has several signature dishes he presents for lunch and dinner at reasonable prices per head, which are prepared and served family style. Both Sri Lankan and International favourites are available from our menus, but if you don’t see what you would like please ask Cook to prepare items of your choice, or ask for his recommendations based on available seasonal favourites. He will be happy to prepare dishes to your taste.

Should you prefer, our guests are welcome to bring along their own food items, and Cook will be happy to prepare these on your behalf. Our Butler can even arrange to go shopping for the ingredients you chose whilst you relax, if you provide us with your shopping list. All at no extra cost. Our staff will be happy to bake you a cake, organise lunch in the garden, arrange Afternoon Tea on the Verandah, or prepare an evening BBQ which is guaranteed to excite your tastebuds. Anything is possible… Please keep in mind that the Villa does not hold a Liquor License as this is a private residence, and as such we cannot provide or sell alcohol, however if you bring your own supply, we will be happy to serve you at no extra cost and no corkage will be charged.


Breakfast favourites

Our Chefs are very proud to provide a wide selection of traditional Sri Lankan favourites as part of our Breakfast menu. Many of their homestyle recipes have been handed down and originate from their homes. Truly delicious and typically authentic, if you have a particular favourite you would like us to prepare for your enjoyment, please just let us know. Make sure though to tell us well in advance so that we can arrange for high quality, fresh ingredients to be available so we can make sure these items are as fresh and as tasty as you would expect.

For those that prefer international favourites, we provide freshly cut tropical fruits and juices, served together with home baked breads and pastries. We have a unique selection of tropical and homemade jams for your enjoyment. Then try two eggs cooked any style, served with delicious sausages or bacon and grilled tomato as you prefer. Specially brewed pots of delicious Anilana Tea are available, or a creamy Cappuccino or flavourful Italian Espresso to set you up for the day. If you prefer something more special, please let Cook know the day before and we will prepare this for your enjoyment.


Lunch & Dinner Options

We suggest that our guests talk with Cook on arrival to discuss and plan your meals for the duration of your stay. This way we can help you to best plan and prepare properly. Just let us know when you plan to eat out, or what you would like us to prepare for your enjoyment.

Some guests prefer to leave everything to us, and for those guests we have prepared special menus to choose freshly produced dishes at reasonable rates per person. These are cooked for sharing family style.

Should you prefer something different, please let us know and we will be happy to cost and prepare this. Others prefer to bring your own ingredients, so we can prepare these on your behalf and happily serve you at no additional cost. Don’t forget to bring the wine with you! The selection and quality up here is not as varied or as good as you would more easily find available in Colombo or elsewhere in the country.


Outdoor Dining

Our lovely Dining room is always available to our guests for their meals of course, but it is not the only dining option available to you! Breakfast can be served on the Verandah if you prefer, as could an old fashioned Afternoon Tea with cake, scones and finger sandwiches.

We can set up a table for lunch for you on the lawn, or prepare evening drinks followed by a BBQ if you wish. We are always happy to try something different, focusing on making sure your stay is a memorable and enjoyable one. We have prepared special menus for you to select from, or can prepare something unique and special with advance notice.


Personalized Menus

Special occasions require a special menu, and we are happy to prepare a more formal meal, or help you to organise, enjoy and celebrate a special occasion. Just let us know and we can help to arrange a suitable menu for your approval. We can always arrange for reinforcements from our other hotels to join, if you want us to organise a larger, or more special party. Please let us know your requirements, and we will be happy to assist you.
