The setting of this wonderful old Dutch merchant's mansion is exquisite. I've had drinks and dined here before, and always happy to return. The service team was spot on and the manager a gracious fellow checking in to see all was to my satisfaction. Jumbo prawns on the grill and a right fine G&T before-hand. Personally I recommend having drinks... More

Delightful hotel where we just stopped for a drink. Very reasonably priced. Appeared more characterful than the more expensive Amangalla hotel. Would have been lovely to have spent a night here.

The food quality was good but the view was better. There was a nice atmosphere in the evening. Service was ok.

We stumbled in for lunch & were delighted with the ambience & beauty of this place. Tapas lunch was delicious & one of my favorite meals in Galle.

Sitting on the verandah, with huge vases of purple waterlilies, and frangipani trees, birds in the sun of the courtyard, attentive service, and wonderful food, what more could you ask. Lime sodas to die for, and food that combined the best of Sri Lankan dishes with the style and delicacy of the best of Western dining made this one of... More

We went to this restaurant in a group of 4. After talking to the waiter they allowed us to sit inside near the courtyard (apparent they only allow guest staying in the hotel over there), but the waiter for courteous enough. he also took the order. Then another waiter came and asked if we stayed in the hotel. When we... More

We had lunch here whilst visiting Galle. It is so beautiful - like a piece of colonial Sri Lanka which has been left behind. We enjoyed sitting in the shady cool courtyard sipping our lime and sodas, and had a lovely meal, which was probably a bit expensive compared to other places we could have eaten, but was nonetheless still...

I found this place while my travel in Asia. It is inside of the Galle fort. The hotel is Managment by Srilankan and foreigners. But there is nothing to special, I think they must be to take care of the the Guest.

My wife and I visited Galle Fort during the day and saw the Galle Fort Hotel. They had on tables in the foyer details of the A la carte menu for the evening before Valentines night. The price of the meal was indicated as SLR 3000 per person (approx £15) with a ++ following the price. My wife and I... More

We booked supper here as we had been recommended to eat here by some friends. The staff were disinterested and just about managed to take our order. Food bland and poorly presented. There are plenty of nicer places to eat in Galle.
