not a lot of food for money. Curries were fine, they also have wifi. Limited seats and insects crawling on walls and tables.

I went to Cafe Punto today for a very welcome banana lassi during the afternoon heat of Galle. The service was okay at first, but got much better afterwards. The banana lassi was excellent!

We entered this place for lunch, we ordered vegetable curry and prawn curry alongside a chocolate milkshake and a mango lassi, most of the vegetable weren't that tasty except for the dhal which was okay, the prawn curry was mostly boiled vegetables with 4 very small prawns, the lassi tasted more of yogurt then of mango and the chocolate shake...

We had a wonderful breakfast here - fresh fruit, tea and Sri Lankan style breakfast all served with a warm smile and genuine hospitality by the owner and cook. Truly lovely.

The four tables are disposed adjacent to the living room of the house. It's nice that there are no gaps between home and the cafe. The family in charge is very friendly and the menu is affordable and tasty. Nice.

This is a very small cafe/restaurant. We looked at it in the morning as people were having breakfast.

We were the only ones eating there for quite some time (somebody else came in as we had nearly finished our... More

I went here twice recently... More
