Iconic building great for a drink, but a limited menue

One has to visit this iconic building, which has been stunningly renovated, if only for a cocktail on the beautiful front balcony. I stayed for dinner so that I could soak in the atmosphere of the dinning area overlooking the central courtyard adjacent to the pool. The menue is quite limited which... read more

Ate in a lovely poolside area. Very pretty. Delicious food. Range of sri lankan and western. Great service. Expensive but you get what you pay for.

This hotel is located inside the magnificent Dutch Fort, GALLE. The food served here is really delicious. Our steward Anushka offered us a great service. Mr. Ishan came to our table & made sure we had a nice time. The hotel structure is truly majestic. I had a little walk around to enjoy the hotel's super beautiful surroundings. Sameera was... More

The courtyard setting is serene and beautiful and the food was fantastic quality and even better value, $8 for the curry with 5-star service and surrounds, just couldn't fault the food or service, the bar out the front is one of the best also.

First visit to Sri Lanka and loving it, staying near by which I will review later. Galle Fort Hotel recommended by friends in Australia and TripAdvisor reviews. 4 of us popped in for quick lunch. Stunning, exquisite and sublime. Based on that we have booked for dinner next week.

I loved the veg curry set I ordered; It had maybe 5 or 6 curries, and lots of white rice (they don't have brown rice). The curries were quite big, so I ate maybe just 1/3rd of food. I asked if next time I could order half portion, since I don't like wasting food. But they said no. The curries... More

By chance we chose to have lunch in The Galle Fort Hotel. The choice was well made! This Hotel is a slice of history , restored to an easy 5star standard. The staff were very pleasant and service of a high standard ( but still retaining their Sri Lankan freindliness) The meal was of an excellent standard and of good... More

On my last day in Sri Lanka I took lunch in Galle Fort Hotel Restaurant. I wanted to enjoy the nice quiet patio with view to the pool... that seemed to me to be a perfect place for a lunch. And it was! I was lucky to get very nice young waiter Ishara to accompany me. I chose the crab... More

We were greeted by the General Manager of the hotel, David Elgar, when we first stepped inside the hotel which was so welcoming. The elevated verandah restaurant overlooking the pool and gardens was filled with candles providing a lovely atmosphere. We chose the chicken curry and were not disappointed. Our reason for returning to this restaurant was having previously had... More
