In my view this is one of the best placed to enjoy a meal in Galle, and this in a very authentically presented Dutch colonial environment. The menu has some really interesting propositions and the food was quite exquisite. This paired with a couple of glasses of nicely presented wine made this a very charming evening, enjoying the mild tropical... More

We were last week for dinner at the restaurant inside the hotel Amangalla in the magnificent Dutch fort. I must say that even though the menu is not extensive, is improving significantly since the manager Pietro, part English and part Italian has taken care, in the management sees and he know how to cook. The young Indian chef, who was... More

We had only a drink here, but it is spectacular and luxurious - a must! Pricey for eating but sitting on the balcony is one of the best experiences in Galle.

The food and the service are fantastic. This was the last, and the very best meal of my entire holiday. It also wasn't very expensive considering the quality and the location, in the oldest hotel in Sri Lanka, maintained beautifully and with impeccably dressed staff. The manager also pops by occasionally to check all is ok.

Definitely the best crab curry we have ever had and we've had many! Food and service second to none -- special thanks to Yasith - a gem of a guy ! His enthusiasm sold us completely. Chef Sunil(t) was the perfect host obliging us with requests for more curry gravy a bit of this and that !!! If we could... More

I have never tried the famous English afternoon tea event - but I was lucky to get the big high tea on silver platters here at Amangalle. It was super delicious and there was so much food that we hardly could rise up from the chair. We did need for food for the rest of the day. It is an... More

The restaurant is located in one of the best hotels in Galle. The service is very good and they are very friendly. The food was good. To share we take scallops with cauliflower puree, very tasty. Then we have the rissotto with crab, it was good but the best was the rice & curry. To go for dinner one day... More

A busy afternoon in Galle had the perfect ending when we enjoyed the Silver Stand afternoon tea for four at this wonderful hotel. Large portions, delicious food and exemplary service. Not cheap, but well worth the money. Top tip - try the 'white tea!'

We came her for afternoon tea. Stunning hotel and very good food to match. Had very good coffee instead of tea. We chose the silver stand and were served with 2 large scones with cream and great chunky strawberry jam. Then came out the actual stand, laden with sandwiches, tarts, cakes and other sweet goodies. We were left very satistfied... More

Another place that felt like we were back in colonial times. We had a couple of cracking Arrack Sours relaxing on the porch. The service was fantastic and the drinks were knock out. This place was so good, drinks so nice and we really relaxed for the first time in months here, that it actually made our top 5 experiences... More
