“Good food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Despite being at the moat famous location in Colombo, the food is very reasonably priced and very good. I would recommend this to anyone staying at the hotel. They have the standard fare here. Curries, a few chicken dishes, some seafood, etc.

“Great setting, terrible service.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Beautiful setting, over looking the ocean. That's the best I can say. The waiting stuff disappear when ever a customer is near. Impossible service, just ridiculous.

“Long time for service.”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Limited choice of breakfast juices. Wood apple nowhere near a favourite! Don't class orange cordial as breakfast juice. Long time waiting for eggs to be cooked and had to ask for tea/coffee to be served several times.

“Away from the rush of the city”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We needed somewhere for a drink and a bite to eat away from the rush of the city and the style of the Galle Face Hotel was perfect for our needs
