“A lovely place with reasonable food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Very good food at a very affordable price. Very disciplined staff to serve us. It is not very posh but average conditions and the best location. Ideal place for business luncheon meetings as you have comfortable space for it

“Loved the prawn cream soup and the Koththu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Situated next to the fort and run by the navy, lighthouse galley is a wonderful restaurant the staff is really friendly and interactive. The restaurant alone has a really good look and with the view of the lighthouse and the sea, the view is picturesque. Try to stay in the outdoor seating because inside you can't enjoy the beauty of the location. The food was really delicious. The prawn cram soup in one of the best I've had in my life, The only downside is with the kitchen. Being situated a bit far from the sitting area, the kitchen takes a considerable amount of time to deliver the food to the table. So the customers have to wait a bit long for the food. However, the experience and the food was great and it's a restaurant I've been visiting regularly. I'd recommend it for anyone.

“Good place for a drink or to hangout with friends.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This place has a delightful atmosphere. WIth good amount of sea breeze. The restaurant is run by the Navy, hence their service and cleanliness is superb. The food was average but you will have the best value for it. Please reserve before you go. (Capt. Galappaththi - 0777414937). I went with my friends for a dinner outing. We did not had any liquor on that day. But hoping to go soon for a drink also, because the atmosphere is so good and also you can feel the sea breeze on your face.

“Value for money you pay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

I have visited this place for more than 5 times. The CEO, Capt. Parakrama took a personal interest in giving the best service. Among those who accompanied me was my family (twice), a family from USA (they thoroughly enjoyed the roof top atmosphere) , Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya with his family, group of special friends etc. All of them admired the place. Excellent service with good food, music and romantic ambiance.
