Description: The Fort Printers offers a fresh and vibrant menu that uses predominantly fresh seafood and organic local produce. The chiefs plan the menu for the day based on guests’ preferences, and lovingly create soups, mezzes, and mains comprising grilled fresh seafood, Mediterranean inspired specialties, and traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry (which includes several vegetable dishes and at least one fish or meat curry). As seafood and particularly yellow fin tuna is abundant in the area, you can expect to find dishes with sashimi, grilled or seared tuna, lobster, prawns and several kinds of fish. The meals are served in the frangipani courtyard overlooking the thin lap pool or in the grand dining room and at times to suit the whims of the guests.

We wandered Galle one evening, seeking somewhere less cafe and more upmarket for dinner, and came across the Fort Printers. It has an intimate candlelit setting in an inner courtyard by a small pool. Great for couples.

Our meal was excellent- we had Mezzes, a tagine and a Sri Lankan curry and good old banana fritters and banana split. Loved it.

An absolutely beautiful hotel, every detail has been thought out carefully. The staff were really friendly without being overbearing. The food was reasonably priced and really good and the location was brilliant.

Having looked at the menu ( which is expensive ) but thought it was worth a visit .Loved the choice of starters ,and the mains .It does serve wine with meals.Maybe because we were the only people in the restaurant I felt it lacked atmosphere !!

We enjoyed a good meal and the staff were pleasant, but overall we felt the mood was a little stuffy, which took the edge off the experience. It was also the most costly evening of our time in Galle. The one saving grace of the evening was that alcohol was available.

We had dinner here during our night in Galle and it was lovely. Our party sat at a big candlelit table under a fan and enjoyed attentive service and a wideranging menu with a particularly interesting range of starters. Not cheap but worth paying a bit extra for the elegant surroundings.
