We ate here as a 'special occassion' meal while in Galle Fort. It is expensive compared to other places around but is a delightful setting & beautiful building & interiors with good service. We had the set curry menu which was a huge amount of food and delicious.

Lovely atmosphere in historic beautifully restored Dutch building. Food and service very good. The person who came and asked how everything was never introduced himself.

During our first night at Amangalla, we decided to dine on the hotel's porch. We both enjoyed well-presented and fresh sea food dishes as well as house-made ice creams. Oh, the service was outstanding! We also enjoyed two breakfasts at Amangalle. The breakfast menu, for Sri Lanka, was extensive. The French toast was probably the best I ever had. Enjoy!

I had 2 days in Galle and stopped here for lunch. It was off season, boiling hot and I was looking for a change from curry. The Amangalla came up trumps. I had a delicious lunch on a cool and pretty shaded verandah, and ws able to watch the world trot by in comfort. For very good food, excellent service... More

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
