I had booked dinner well in advance for my husband's birthday but didn't get the service I expected. Despite telling the maitre d that it was my husband's birthday (and having explained that in the email when I made the reservation), he spent most of his time fawning over a couple who ordered champagne and didn't even get involved or...

We found this restaurant having read a review on line and enjoyed our lunch so much we found an excuse to go back to Galle another day so we could lunch again. The building has been renovated beautifully and the veranda is a lovely place for lunch. There is also a comfortable indoor restaurant area. The service was good. The... More

Delicious supper with delicate rather than robust Sri Lankan cuisine. A very good way to start to enjoy the local cuisine.

We made the right decision to luch at the Galle Fort Hotel on a day visit to the town. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. The colonial setting is exquisite and if visiting Galle again this would be the hotel to stay in.

Wonderful lemongrass scented rice and curry with all the condiments. The Sri Lankan cheese toast was very creative, with curry leaves and chilli peppers. The ginger pudding with orange custard and ice-cream was divine. Washed down with cold beer. The setting is divine, in a beautifully appointed dining room with a wall of blue Ditch china, and beautiful antiques.

As residents we opted to take Christmas dinner in and were so glad we did. 5 delicious courses, served in a timely manner by friendly and professional serving staff. Even made changes for my non fish eating husband on two courses. Really excellent food in such a lovely setting, yep so glad we stayed home for dinner!

We booked a set menu lunch for christmas day - and we loved it. The foood was fantastic, staff friendly, service excellent and the venue was lovely. The general manager even dropped by our table to offer staff to babysit our four year old. If we are ever back in Galle again it will be on our 'must do' list.
