My family and I have eaten here 3 times last year and we came back again this year. The setting has a great old world feel, those who are nostalgic for the colonial era, this is an amazing venue, excuse the panache for anachronism, I grew up as an expat in Hong Kong in the 70's and 80's! Even though... More

Loved the lunch in a luxurious colonial setting with the trademark style of the Aman hotel group. Service was impeccable . I highly recommend the Ayurvedic lunch!

Good gazpacho (available at lunch). Wine by the glass selection is lacking. We dined here four times and it was good one out of four times. Calamari was undercooked, seer fish was dry and overcooked, risotto was soupy. The price of the food makes a mediocre meal harder to stomach.

Stylish and sensational, and a peaceful refuge from drowning in the Ceylon humidity. Our best dinner in Sri Lanka was here, no it wasn't a curry. We dropped in for an afternoon and evening on our way from staying at Amanwella, and we were looked after so well by everyone, with special shout-outs to the front office and restaurant managers....

Went with family for dinner, did not stay there. Food wasn't particularly tasty, the rice and curry was bland. I had about half of the food left and I asked for a takeaway box.. to my surprise I was told they don't have boxes since they don't do takeaway. Most fine dining restaurants also don't do takeaway but they have... More

Went here as a change from our hotel. Great setting, fantastic food and excellent service. My wife needs a gluten free diet and this didn't phase the staff at all.

Lovely stop whilst visiting Galle. Attentive service in the lovely hall. I did feel the environment was a little sterile, despite the friendly smiles from staff. Perhaps some paintings/pictures may help indoors. The terrace area was lovely. Cakes were a little dry for me.

The setting is quite beautiful and we went en famille for a 30/60 birthday dinner. Drinks in the lovely hall followed by dinner. We all had the rice and curry and copious cocktails and drinks . Service was just right. Yes, it's expensive but we felt quite justly so given the surroundings.

This was my second visit to Sri Lanka, my second visit to Galle Fort, and my second visit to the Amangalla hotel to dine on their restaurant terrace. I just love it. The colonial style of the building makes me feel like I have entered another time and is equal parts classy and romantic. The service is top notch, the... More

We weren't staying at the Amangalla - but went for drinks on two occasions and to their spa ….. which is wonderful. We opted for their signature full body massage - which works out at around £55 and was just incredible. The hotel itself is beautiful - and were shown one of their suites, with an eye to a return...
