“Unique architecture not enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

This beautiful 1930-architecture mansion is worth a visit on its own. The style is consistent almost throughout the entire buliding.
The restaurant is another story. The menu is basic, and the food OK without justifying the hype this place has been exposed to. Wine at 4000 LKR is overpriced. Fort Galle has many value for money places to offer. Enjoy the architecture and go somewhere else for the food.

“Fantastic food IMA great location ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

You probably can get similar quality elsewhere in the neighbourhood but for the setting and location this has to be one if the best. From the Art Deco villa to fantastic service in the most beautiful part of the Galle fort. Credit to the owners.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We went out to dinner to this lovely place in Galle Fort. The service was impeccable, the food was absolutely delicious and the live music was great. I would highly recommend giving it a try. I do not think you would be dissappointed.

“Bit expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Called in for a beer and a snack during our day in Galle. Not a great selection of food on the menu so opted for a chicken burger. Beer was bottled and flat when poured, not as good as we expected considering the rave revues
