Description: Modern, Stylish and Comfortable. Soak up the ambience and enjoy our inspired menu. The restaurant combines a palette of vivid colours and elegant teak furnishings. Escoffier has been styled into an all day affair where you can choose from a cup of coffee to a sumptuous semi fine dining meal.It is a great place for Al fresco dining with its timber paved beautiful Verandah where you can enjoy a cup of tea while listening to the soul soothing sound of sea waves with glimpse of the sea. The restaurant has 36 covers inside, 24 covers on the Verandah and 16 covers outside in the courtyard. Escoffier is open from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm on everyday.Restaurant's all-day menus include a great value plat du jour as well as a stunningly good a la carte choice. It is the best place in town offering an extensive choice of quality international food and beverage items, as well as local specialties and in addition - 'made to order' favourites. Whether you're looking for an affordable yet chic restaurant to take your date, a warm, inviting venue to have a BBQ with your friends on weekend, Escoffier has something for everyone.

Really enjoyed my visit to escoffier have eaten in may restaurants in sri lanka but this is as cloe to 'western experience' i have had.Staff friendly and attentive, menu was varied and very resonable priced. Salmon starter stood out it was exceptional, had garlic prawns for main coure excellent portion size and very very tasty. Overall would recommend to anyone too visit this restaurant and nice to see standards are getting better. Will be visiting again soon.

went to Escoffier last night and would thoroughly recommend it. The tomato soup was fantastic with a lovely smokey flavour and my T-bone steal melted in the mouth. The service was attentive without ever being intrusive and prices were fantastic. All in all a great evening was had. The restaurant is very tastefully decorated and is a credit to the owner. Will certainly be visiting again before I leave.

we wanted to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary alone, so we asked a taxi driver to take us somewhere nice [they always have good local knowledge]
he took us to the ESCOFFIER, when we entered over the bridge, we knew we was in the right place, the ambiance just right, the taste of the food perfect,with a great atmosphere to round off the night, altogether a wonderful time, which i would recommend to anyone for a meal, i have ticked only 4 stars for the service, which was very good but the stewards could improve there knowledge [only a tiny bit]
it was so good my wife wants to go back for our 55 anniversary, i have started saving!!
note, we went out in the evening so don't know opening/closing times

Was on my way to Galle with my friends, stopped by in this fancy looking restaurant. I really liked the service and they were fast to bring the food compared to all other restaurants I have been to. LOVED the seafood and the spicy devilled chicken was my choice of food. Would recommend this restaurant to all visitor enroute to and back from Galle.
