My husband and I had dinner in this restaurant and we were completely satisfied ! The waiter was very nice, prices are correct (around 900 Rs for a meal) and the restaurant is really beautiful... We had bugger with REAL French fries (which is very rare in Asia). Also a good wifi connection is there! To sum up, a place... More

I have recently booked a room for 2 nights at La Clochette. It is a very expensive hotel, with good ratings, therefore one would assume that it is good service. First off let me list some of the good things about this little boutique hotel - You couldn't ask for a better location. It is located right inside the old... More

Ok it looks good enough when you enter but the restaurant is merely a front for a clothes and jewellery section. Other Half was desperate for a salad after so much curry so she chose a shrimp salad; I chose an avocado salad. When the meal came, they were both avocado salads but five warm shrimps were placed on OH's... More

Nice ambience when you walk in, tasteful decor. But from there things go downhill. A bunch of lackadaisical lads running the place. I ordered a salad with prawns which were less than fresh. The salad consisted of some limp, tasteless greens and a bit of sliced cabbage with an uninspiring dressing. A couple of slices of baguette which were quite... More

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.

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.
