As Amangalla is rated one of the best (if not best) restaurants in Galle, during our stay one night we decided to go there. The building is beautiful, the setting of the restaurant is very nice and the staff - attentive, yet the food was very average. I had a salad, my husband went for a salad and a main... More

We had in fact two meals at the Amangalla during our brief 3 night visit to the Galle Fort area. A very nice dinner and quick lunch two days apart. Most enjoyable. Service was attentive and food very good. Ambience of the premises is most unique and as this was not our first visit to the Amagalla( we had dine... More

Amangalla set up a table at the last minute for us since we did not have reservations for the special night and considering it was my birthday. They were very accommodating and the food was exceptional!

During our family's recent first Sri Lanka trip, we were deciding between Amangalle and Cape Weligama (for a hotel in this part of the country). We ended up staying in Cape Weligama (separate review). I am very happy we made this choice. During our day trip to Galle (30 min ride from our hotel), we had a very pleasant lunch... More

We enjoyed high tea at the Amangalla in the afternoon. It was fabulous! The food was delicious (both sweet and savory) with inclusions suitable for vegetarians also. We had a party of 3 adults and 2 children for the "silver plate" and failed to finish, so the serving was generous. The atmosphere and building was beautiful and the service was... More

After a visit to the lovely old fort area of Galle this restaurant is the ideal place to have a quiet lunch. The menu is international with Sri Lankan overtones and the best meal we had during our two week holiday. The service is perfect and the atmosphere old colonial. After the heat and humidity outside, the cool air supplied... More

I visited Amanggala after hearing so much about the property, the service and of course the English High Tea. My first impression of Amangalla was unimpressive. The old world charm might be an attraction for some but this is the reality - upon entering I found the lounge and dining areas dark, tired, furniture, flooring and doors seem really old... More

My wife and I visited the Amangalla Hotel for dinner one night during our stay in the Galle Fort. Like everything during our visit to this city it was a magical experience. Our table was on the veranda and we enjoyed the night air. The hotel and dining area are quite colonial and chicly decorated. The service and food were... More

With gentle breezes and soft conversations surrounding us on the veranda, we enjoyed our well-prepared, delicious candlelit dinner here. The staff was attentive and friendly but not overbearing. Our last meal in Galle, it was also our fond farewell to Sri Lanka - hope we can return.

Rather expensive for Galle and food on the low end of average. Salads, pasta and calamari tasteless and deserts so so. All this despite a lovely airy balcony and obliging and attentive staff. A real shame and a missed opportunity.
