Nice place, friendly staff, reasonable price for a very good breakfast except the not drinkable tea (light but bad taste) and crazy strong coffee that also tasted bad. But you get a fruit juice and Wi-Fi ;)

Lonely planet recommended the place to us. The staff that served us isn't friendly. We weren't sure of the food that was served and he was reluctant to explain the dishes to us.

If u can wait for an hour , please come to this cafe. Can't understand why three dishes takes so long to cook without any other customer in the cafe. The staff reject to give us more plates for sharing. Normal taste, salty dish

We ate at Cafe Punto twice whilst staying in Galle. Once again, like a lot of places in Sri Lanka, it is family run, wife in the kitchen, hubby waiting. They let you know that food may take a while due to being only one person in the kitchen and we were more than happy with this. Especially because, the... More

Small place in the nice fort of Galle. Try the lime juice if you are looking for a refreshment on a hot day.

If you want to eat good, Sri Lankian style-dishes in a cozy, familiar atmosphere, the Punto is the place. Very good meals, best we had in a Sri Lankian restaurant so far. Try the Punto Specials!;)
