Apart from one useless waiter inside the restaurant, the place is great. Beautiful location with all you could require. Great massage too.

Amangalla manages to achieve something which is nigh on impossible in Sri Lanka... skilfully blending excellent service, old world charm and elegant surroundings with modern contemporary hotel living. . We haven't stayed at this historic hotel yet, but if the food and service at its restaurant are anything to go by, we're sure that being a guest at this top... More

We had dinner here one night, and it was by a long way the best food we had in Sri Lanka. The Lobster Spaghetti is probably the best I've ever had anywhere! Staff we excellent, we stayed around to watch the Six Nations in the bar (on iPad - there aren't screens) and even though it got late and we... More

We only stopped for drinks, but the splendour of the hotel, the interiors all resplendent in it's original glory, it was truly a welcoming stop after the walk through the fort in the hot sun. The drinks were served swiftly and we were attended to very well.

Beautifully renovated, magical hotel. If you can manage the price try and stay there it's a wonderful experience. If not settle for drinks & dinner on the terrace or afternoon tea. It's a must see in the fort

This is the only restaurant in the fort with a colonial ambiance and a classy ambiance at that. The prices on the menu look as if they are a notch higher than the average prices in the Fort restaurants, but they aren't so. The prices at Amangalla are honest - inclusive of tax and service charges. So there is no... More

We have stayed at Amangalle several times in the past since it opened and have a tradition of having dinner and afternoon tea here at least once a trip to Galle. Firstly afternoon tea with scones is excellent - best had on the patio i think - served with local china and tea - the scones are not light and... More

We stopped here for a drink and some lunch. The building is beautifully decorated and the staff faultless. Drinks were expertly poured and nothing was too much trouble. Lunch had stopped but a club sandwich was made for my hungry husband. Very nice.

This is a beautiful old colonial hotel with just the right touch of colonialism in its service and food! The service is quiet and attentive if a little erratic at times. We had dinner there and the service was great. We had lunch there a few days later and the waiters were more interested in chasing the dogs away from... More
