We walked pass this cafe and decided to give it a try. It's a family run cafe, simple and cozy. We came for dinner and order curry chicken and curry prawn. It actually came with a few other veggie dishes (ocra, potato, bean, etc). The food taste authentic and home cooked. The taste was not what you get in 5... More

I've been to Galle Fort (Sri Lanka) a number of times since my first visit to Sri Lanka in 2011. I was fortunate to come across this small, relatively inconspicuous place owned by a hardworking couple, on my first trip. Once I discovered how good it was, I would go there for breakfast and dinner most days and it never... More

if you have a chance to go to Galle, you should visit the Punto Cafe. The Punto Cafe is easy to find, becuse it is situated in the center of the Fort. Inside the Fort, there are so many cafes and restuarants. I confidently recommend the Punto Cafe. I assure you that you can spend the splendid time.

Delicious breakfast feast for a fraction of what others in fort area are charging. About $4 US equivalent for coffee juice pancakes and eggs.

Good value breakfast prepared with care. After many other more expensive but less tasty breakfasts in Sri Lanka we were very happy and surprised to find Cafe Punto in Galle Fort. We did have to wait because the food was prepared from scratch. The service was friendly and the decor simple and tasteful creating a nice atmosphere. At 500 SLR... More

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. The pot of tea is a smallest pot of tea we ever ordered in Sri Lanka. Food smells good from the kitchen. Food is good. The different... More

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
