Description: Hi We opened this restaurant recently, coming form France. It is located in the Fort of Galle : 3 Parawa Street (a small road off Pedlar street, near the Remparts ; ask for the French Café as many people know. We are open from about 8:30 am till about 10:00 pm (however depending on the season and some special national days off in Srilanka). We work with local products and local young staff we progressively train : it is also our commitment to the country and we do our best with what we find in the place ; we don't pretend anything else. We serve BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH, TEA/COFFE TIME, DINER. You will find (all home made in our bakery) : croissants, brioches, lemon and chocolate pies, fresh juices, good espresso and tea, etc..., as well as some typical French dishes as Coq au Vin, Sole fish in Riesling wine sauce.. Also some "family" food as Pasta and Pizzas. We also create new dishes from time to time. PATIO IN THE BACK SIDE, INTERNATIONAL MUSIC, FREE WIFI . Thank you :)

I am very often in Galle Fort and this restaurant always fails to wow me. Out of season it's often very quiet & they have limited menu. Food was OK, never amazing but certainly never bad. I've been here for several lunches & a few late breakfasts over the last few years. I've been here to their new location &... More

Don't go there out of saison the food is very bad and not cooked. I ordered the African grilled chicken and ended up with a raw chicken leg my friend asked for a well cooked hamburger and the meat was sloppy and with a bad taste.

My boyfriend and I were in Galle for 2/3 days in July 2013 and we visited La Clochette 3 times. The food is amazing. You have to try the owner's chicken sandwich, never before in my life have I had such a wonderful sandwich. Honestly. Also if you're sick of rice and curry, the hot baguettes for breakfast are just... More

We searched a lot for La Clochette but it has shut down at the location on Parawa Street and is moving to a new street.

If you are tired of the rice&curry, you can eat French baguette with French fries.The patio is smart, very quiet and cool.

We decided to try something different for a meal out and stumbled upon this place. The setting was lovely- small tables and benches in a secluded courtyard with little lights and plants. We had a burger and a dessert each which were very good.

Dear Madam, we are normally happy to read constructive critics. Yet we found yours extremely excessive if not aggressive, especially since it is based on wrong assumptions : Since you are wondering what is French we have : Brioche, Baguette, pains au chocolats, croissants (when not sold out), butter (famous Elle et Vire), Chocolate, Coffee, and .... 2/3 of lunch...

I've been reminiscing upon my time in Galle Fort during July 2013. I have many fond memories of La Clochette and It is fantastic to find this excellent restaurant - which during my stay was seemingly overlooked by diners - is now ranked #5 out of 70 restaurants in Galle. Thank you Charles & Gaelle.
