What an excellent little restaurant. We had dinner and juices here and was very impressed. Very clean and had a nice relaxed atmosphere. Staff was really nice and helpful. The menu is not expensive and great all types of travellers. The restaurant was called the rope bar at the time we visited so best to look for both names. Thanks... More

We were accidentally found this restaurant while searching for breakfast. Since it was early in the morning, not many restaurants open yet. From alley to alley we walked and found this hidden gems. We ordered String Hopper -a famous Sri Lankan breakfast with coffee. It takes quite sometimes to prepare but worth waiting. It's so delicious. We love it. For... More

Their 10 curries and rice is really worth trying. Their wooden interior creates an authentic atmosphere. Sitting outside next to the little alley feels like being in Southern France or Italy. Space for improvement: Let guests know that you charge 10 % service fee.

I come to this restaurant everytime i visit Galle. it is a very small place but the owners are very nice and the food is always fresh and homemade. rice and curry is fantastic but they have other delicious dishes and the price is very reasonable . You won't be disappointed!

My friends and I had a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast here with fresh juice and tea. We ordered the strong hoppers and coconut roti, which come with a daal-like dish, spicy pickled red onions, and coconut sambal (though only for the hoppers). The flavors were fantastic and left me craving more the next morning! The food is very hearty, so... More

Like a tiny restaurant in the front room of someone's home... Airy space, with whitewashed walls; clean and comfortable atmosphere. Lovely service. We were the only people eating breakfast here at 8:30 this morning; so it felt rather intimate; but that would have been the same even with others at the few tables. Between the two of us we shared... More

If you can - go here for the best Sri Lankan breakfast. It was really delicious, freshly prepared, home-cooked fare. And the hostess is something of an artist too! My children (aged 8 and 6) each had a very intricate temporary henna tattoo drawn - they look really great. This venue offers the best of Sri Lankan hospitality - down-to-earth... More
