Clique Cuisine Restaurant and Lounge Bar today announced that it had received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great reviews on TripAdvisor. 

Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience.  

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees. The algorithm takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as the business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index of the site.  

To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. 

“Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Clique Cuisine and Lounge and we’d like to thank all of our guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor,” said the Head of Operations at Clique, Rajiv Rajah. 

“There is no greater seal of approval than being recognised by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence for our business and our continued commitment to excellence.” “TripAdvisor is pleased to honour exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travellers on the site,” said President, TripAdvisor for Business, Marc Charron.  “By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps drive up hospitality standards around the world, it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition.”

Situated in the heart of Colombo, with a breathtaking view of Town Hall, Clique Cuisine provides early to late night dining which combines soul, tradition, modernism and glamour.

Similarly, Clique is divided into three spaces: the main restaurant area (Clique Cuisine), the Lounge Bar and the Boardroom, a private dining area which is perfect for intimate gatherings for both business and private functions.

Traditionally, a Supper Club refers to a dining establishment that also functions as a social club, where patrons would spend their whole evening, starting with after-work drinks and dinner, before later retiring to the Lounge Bar for after-dinner entertainment. The menu will continue the Clique style of Eurasian modernist cuisine, featuring many signature dishes from their introductory menu, including sous-vide steaks, Japanese favourites and Clique Rice, as well as new dishes to ignite your senses such as mouth-watering three-tiered seafood platters and BBQ spare ribs.

“Cantaloupe Clique has been in operation for just over 12 months. When we set out on this adventure we had set ourselves an extremely high stakes challenge: to enter Colombo’s ever expanding high-end restaurant market and simultaneously Colombo’s highest niche of the lounge bar market. The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence within this short period of time reflects our guests’ satisfaction and approval of a new and in many ways untested product from the concept to the menu and our perceived inexperience in the food industry. Being rated as the number 1 restaurant on TripAdvisor is a challenge to get to and an even bigger challenge to hold onto with ever-growing competition and ever-rising standards. Much like the many accolades we have received for our hotel properties, this TripAdvisor accolade renews our confidence in our dream of being our Island’s ultimate lifestyle brand,” said Cantaloupe & Co. Founder Dmitri Jayasuriya. TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, enabling travelers to plan and book the perfect trip.
