“nothing special”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Went here on our drivers recommendation. We weren't impressed. Service is very slow. Food is very average, no depth of flavour. Nice view, a peaceful ambience, but wouldn't recommend it to others.

“A bit disappointing”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The best thing about this place is the location, overlooking the walls of the Fort with a great view at sunset. The staff were friendly, and it wasn't very busy when we were there. It was a little bit scruffy but clean. The food was so-so; edible but nothing special. The curry wasn't very spicy. It somehow felt as if a huge tour party would come in at any moment, but in the end no-one did bar a few other couples. Prices were OK for what we got. It was all right, but I wouldn't rush back.

“Food unpredictable”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Had lunch with family members. Great location overlooking the fort but try to reserve a table to get the best view, particularly when lorry-loads of holiday-makers arrive. Sri Lankan curry was pretty average, however, the freshly-cooked seer - served with chips and salad seemed to please. Pasta dishes also seem to be O.K. Not sure about the toilet comment read by other reviewer; seemed to be clean, running water, toilet paper, soap - everything one needs really.

“An average, over-priced place”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Although the setting of this place over looking the ramparts is great, there is nothing else to really recommend this restaurant and there are better places within the Fort.
I ordered a beef burger,which was served between 2 slices of toast! My friends had curry, and the accompanying rice had a strange (unpleasant) smell. The alcohol was also over- priced compared to other places within the Fort.
Altogether, this seems to be the place where tour groups come and is decidedly average.

“pathetic”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

we ordered a sri lankan lunch here on our first day in Galle. It was the most disheartening meal i have eaten on our entire trip to SL. The service is pathetic, and the food is crap. The only saving grace is the fantastic view. Enjoy it but i'd recommend carrying your own food!
