Bars Cafe

Situated on Duplication Road, Bars Café is a popular hotspot for both Youth and Elderly alike. The Company Controlling it- Perera & Sons has a history of over 100 years in the Food Business. This level experience is really brought in the way bars is run. The Restaurant is well maintained and both indoor and outdoor seating areas are kept clean.


The restaurant has a nice lively atmosphere, especially on weekend nights. The seating areas consist of two outdoor decks and one air-conditioned indoor area. We wouldn’t recommend sitting outdoors during the day since it is by the side of the road you are exposed to noise, dust etc despite being one storey above ground level. However if you are going there for dinner the outdoor decks are quite a pleasant place to be with a nice cool breeze flowing through them-helped by the fans. The Indoor area could have nicer seats. The chairs and tables are metal and look like they belong outdoors and have a cheap, uncomfortable feel to them.


The staff are reasonably well trained and have a manager over-looking operations so that things run efficiently. Food is prepared and served pretty quickly so you are rarely kept waiting.


The restaurant serves a diverse range of food- both Western and Eastern. Almost all the dishes on the menu are very good. The Bars Burger, Chicken and Cheese Kieves and the Mongolian are very popular. There is also a wide selction of deserts from Ice creams to Meringues.

Value For Money

Bars Café really rules this category with very well priced dishes. And since the prices on the menu are inclusive of VAT and other costs the customer isnt surprised when the bill arrives and it’s a few hundred more than expected.


Despite being in need of a few changes Bars café is a reasonably priced, well rounded restaurant.

Coco Veranda is located at a high end shopping building and in an expensive area. The coffee is simply delicious including the meals. The burgers are quite popular and it is very much delicious likes any international burger. The Wi-Fi signal is pretty low and quite a long time to load a web page

BARS Cafe is awesome.... best Mongolian anywhere in SL, spicy and value for money. Try the waffle cone - also the best waffle cone I have had in SL. In general, BARS offers a good variety at a good price and the food is always packed with flavour.

Been here a coupla times. Food is average. Value for money is okay i guess. Nice place to have lunch with friends during weekdays when you've got just an hour to finish off lunch :D Friendly staff. Since I'm a regular there , I always walk into friendly known faces. :)

Ohh and not forgetting the occasional crows if you're sitting outside. :D

Worst service. No manners at all when speaking with a customer via their Hotline.

Convenient place to eat out.. Although it's by the road side it gets abit noisy.. Bettr to stay indoors where it's air conditioned and sound proof.. But it has limited space. The cheesecake is the best!!!

Bars Café is located on Duplication Road opposite The Manhattan Fish Market. This cafe is managed by Perera and Sons, which also has a small pastry shop on the ground floor in the same building. Bars Café is known for their delectable seafood Mongolian, which is best prepared with rice. It is a reasonably priced and it is a very casual restaurant. Burgers, Chicken and Cheese Kieves are among the popular dishes. The staff are very friends and quite to serve you, but unlike other restaurant they take a bit of time to bring the bill.

Nice Well priced food at a well designed and clean venue. The Mongolian and the Bars Burger are highly recommended. However the chairs and other furniture in the indoor area feel cheap to sit on and are in need of replacement
