Classic old school colonial feel to the bar area with friendly staff and some killer drinks (best fresh lime soda by my son's assessment)! This is a high end option but for a splurge and a feel of what Galle was perhaps like circa 1930, this place hits the spot.

Galle Fort Hotel, now opened up and much airier and cool than in years past, is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner cocktail, afternoon beer or light meal.

The setting makes this restaurant, the hotel is lovely, no air con in the restaurant but cool enough. The menu is extensive and Sri Lankan in the main.

We stopped here for an evening drink. The cocktails were delicious (but expect to pay Western prices). The service was also very friendly. Lovely to sit on the veranda and watch the passing traffic.

Having stayed and dined at the Galle Fort Hotel four years ago during our last visit to Sri Lanka ( with most pleasant experiences then) I was eager to return to have a meal there.
