After strolling the streets of Galle Fort in heat of the morning sun, the Fort Printers was a great place to relax, refresh and refuel. Entering from Pedlar Street you pass through a porch and hall to emerge in a partially covered courtyard with a pool centre stage, a great little retreat from Galle's busy network of lanes. Although I didn't choose anything especially adventurous from the menu, both the food (a fine gourmet burger, with chips and salad) and the service were of good quality. A little pricier, perhaps, than other options in the Fort, but well worth it to dine in such relaxing surroundings.

Loved our dinner here. The seafood was so delicious and presentation fabulous. Small amount of wines the night we visited, but what we had was enjoyable and not too pricy. Staff very good

This place doesn't serve alcohol, we didn't have coffee, but the Gallery is worth visiting. Make sure you get a map of Galle Fort, which should be available here, to appreciate everything the Fort has to offer - so many nooks and crannies to explore. "Drawn to Galle Fort" is a brochure with map by Juliet Coombe that should be available here. We can highly recommend her walking tour and cooking class as well. US$15 for the tour and US$38 for the tour and cooking class.

We have just enjoyed a dinner by the pool at Fort Printers which was enjoyable in a quiet way. It is low season so there was only one other table occupied. Waiter service was good and the staff were politely chatty and offered to show us a room.

Meals were adequate in portion however vegetables were drowned in olive oil but fresh and tasty.
I enjoyed grilled prawns comprising three prawns of varying size. One was langostine size so very large but tough and tasteless. The other two were smaller, tasty and tender. My husband ordered the fish of the day and asked that they grill it instead of frying it. Mahi mahi was the fish - it was tasty but nothing special. Overall food was just OK and over priced by the time you add the tax and service charge. Ambience was good as was service.
