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.

This UNESCO-accredited hotel is worth a stop, to sit on the veranda or the courtyard. Imagine the tea-traders and colonists of old sipping a beer, complaining about the heat and appreciating the breezy, fanned balconies.

We ate a dinner in a beautiful terrace, but food wasn't what we expected for the price. Food was very average and main course was too big, we couldn't eat it all. Service was ok.

After 2 weeks in Sri Lanka we were very pleased to have some that was familiar to us from our past life living in America. Great lunch of fish and chips, chicken parmesan and Mediterranean platter. Fantastic bread and some of the best iced tea in the world.

This place gets worse every time we visit! Stayed under the old regime 8 years ago and all great! Returned in 2011 and 2012 to eat but very disappointing menu, food and service. So bad in 2012 when we went with friends that we walked out. Gave my card to the waiter but nobody ever contacted me! Returned out of... More
