“Bit expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Called in for a beer and a snack during our day in Galle. Not a great selection of food on the menu so opted for a chicken burger. Beer was bottled and flat when poured, not as good as we expected considering the rave revues

“Refreshing afternoon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

We stopped in the garden for a refreshing drink after a long day wandering around the Galle Fort. The garden was beautifully appointed and my iced tea was so delicious! The food menu looked fantastic and we would definitely have taken the opportunity to eat here if we had an further time.

“Irresistible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Irresistible, delectable and indulgent. It's a real treat for a foodie like me and it's worth the hours drive it takes to get there on the days when you really just want a lovely mean that never fails to disappoint. It has a small menu, but it definitely packs a punch in the delivery. All my meals have been cooked to perfection. It's about the 5th time I have been to this restaurant and The food has always been delicious and consistently so. That Itself Is a commendable feat in this part of the world!
My recommendations are the linguine and the jumbo prawns. Enjoy :)

“Great Brekkie to start your day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The sri lankan breakfast, which we ordered the night before, was enough to carry us through lunch time. With delicious egg, spiced chicken, the sambols, milk rice and string hoppers accompanied by smiling service staff it was a great way to start our day. Some of the group members ordered the continental breakfast and ommelette, which was also delicious. Unfortunately could not dine there for lunch and dinner, but will definitely give it a go next time. Highly recomemnd.
