Good place for a rest

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...

Pros: pretty good rice and curry, not the best in the fort.. But best price in the fort for rice and curry. Friendly owners Everything is made to order, very hot and fresh Very fair prices (hope this doesnt change as kfc is looking like a viable option to save money) 2km by tuk tuk.. 1400 for dinner for two....

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. Those at the table near the open window said how good it was, so we made a booking for the evening. We were the only ones eating there for quite some time (somebody else came in as we had nearly finished our... More

Nice little family run cafe. Used to be very good (I wrote a review when first opened a couple years ago), but I think the new wave of tourists and the increasingly busy location on Peddlar Street has turned the cafe into catering towards tourist tastes instead of offering up authentic home-cooked Sri Lankan cuisine. I went here twice recently... More

We ate breakfast here on a few occasions as it was very good value for money and also lunch on one occasion. The breakfast which cost 550 roupies is delicious - the fruit platter is copiuos and you also get eggs, toast or rottie and tea or coffee. Its a small family run café with an open front right opposite... More

Once we managed to get a table in this little resto, the entire experience was great. We went for the chicken special curry, prawn special and an extra cuttlefish. It came with 5 accompanying veggie options. Hard pressed which was the best, the aubergine and couscous dishes were definite favourites. Only drawback, you can't have a beer: it's no alcohol...
