Introducing Colombo to chic French fine dining, Cafe Francais by Pourcel became an exciting addition to the city’s foodscape when it opened in November 2014. Since then, the restaurant has established itself as a firm favourite among Colombo’s swish set, as much for its authentic menu with French classics such as Provencal vegetable ratatouille and tuna tartare, as for its trendy after-hours vibe. We spoke to Mila Rodrigo, PR and Events Manager of the restaurant, about its long-standing relationship with CFW.

Tell us a little bit about Cafe Francais’ association with CFW.

We have been associated with CFW right since we opened in November 2014. It has always been easy to work with them, and it has been a fruitful association because they are very serious about what they do.

How did the restaurant contribute to CFW Swim?

We hosted a closing party for CFW in February, and we hosted the official closing party for CFW Swim as well. We had a great response to the party — the restaurant was completely packed for the event. We also served three speciality cocktails that had been created by Rockland Distilleries specially for CFW Swim. We hope to be associated with CFW in the future as well.
