I love that place to have a small fresh drink or a lunch. The restaurant is behind a shop in a spa building. That’s really peaceful and relaxing. The food was good and I like the pho ga local style. Highly recommended to experience a...More

This is one of those places which is better on “Instagram” than reality. Food and setting looked fantastic but in reality it’s a bit average and overpriced. Better places on the same street

Food and place is good. Not many vegan options and the coconut yoghurt isn’t really coconut so you have to specify you don’t want dairy which is misleading in the menu. Avo toast is awesome. However the timings are off. We went there couple times...More

Loved Poonies- the food was delicious. We got ourselves two Salad Thalis and they were great- fresh, healthy, delicious. We asked for dairy free to make it vegan which they happily accommodated. Beautiful private setting with cool goldfish pond! Considering going back for more... only...More

This is one of the best places to eat in Galle for breakfast or lunch. The setting is very Bali-like and has a fabulous shop at the front packed with upmarket ear-rings, saris and more. The restaurant is outdoors with huge fans, a gorgeous tree,...More
