The Bayleaf occupies a beautiful and grand old Colonial home at the bottom of Gregory’s Road in Colombo 7. With culinary flair and inspired creativity, Bayleaf’s chefs have been interpreting traditional Italian cuisine to the great delight of all those in Colombo who value a lovely meal in a wonderful atmosphere.
You can dine upstairs in one of our dining rooms or choose the lovely balcony that wraps around the first floor. Alternatively, you could dine on the verandah overlooking the beautiful garden and impressive marquee. The latter is a perfect place for those looking for a venue for a stylish dinner party. If you wish to host a small dinner, we can offer you one of our dining rooms upstairs.
Our menu is an ode to all that is delicious and wonderful about Italian food. You can start with one of our signature Antipasti starters or a delicious soup, before moving on to a main course featuring our Bayleaf-made fresh pastas or fish or meat dishes. As for our indulgent desserts, our Tiramisu is to die for. We also a have wide range of wines from which you can choose to accompany your meal.
The Bayleaf is open from 8:00am until midnight on weekdays and 1:00am on Fridays and Saturdays. We are flexible when it comes to last orders, though generally this is at 11:00pm and midnight respectively. We have a generous selection of vegetarian meals for those of you who prefer not to eat meat or fish.
Either before or after your meal, you can visit our Retro Bar for a cocktail or two, where you can enjoy good music in a friendly and informal atmosphere.
