Description: Hi We opened this restaurant recently, coming form France. It is located in the Fort of Galle : 3 Parawa Street (a small road off Pedlar street, near the Remparts ; ask for the French Café as many people know. We are open from about 8:30 am till about 10:00 pm (however depending on the season and some special national days off in Srilanka). We work with local products and local young staff we progressively train : it is also our commitment to the country and we do our best with what we find in the place ; we don't pretend anything else. We serve BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH, TEA/COFFE TIME, DINER. You will find (all home made in our bakery) : croissants, brioches, lemon and chocolate pies, fresh juices, good espresso and tea, etc..., as well as some typical French dishes as Coq au Vin, Sole fish in Riesling wine sauce.. Also some "family" food as Pasta and Pizzas. We also create new dishes from time to time. PATIO IN THE BACK SIDE, INTERNATIONAL MUSIC, FREE WIFI . Thank you :)

Reviewed February 20, 2014

A place to find and follow. Charles and his team has created a really french place in a small street in Galle Fort, and propose French bakery, croissants, baguettes etc plus small plates with seafood, salad etc. Colorful decoration, nice service, a patio, a small boutique. You meet french people, the owners and others. But hurry up, within a year they will move on to a new adress, still inside Galle Fort.

“Great (western) food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

This was the first time in weeks we ate a western meal. Usually I am a bit sceptic and disappointed when no sticking to the local customs. This time however, we really enjoyed the brilliant bruschettas. The caesar salad was also a great pick (they managed to find real parmezan cheese). The penne bolognaise (for me an absolute no go to eat in asia) exceeded all expectations.

On pricing, admittedly it is a bit more expensive that your average rice and curry but it absolutely fits within standard price range in Galle or Unawatuna. Value for money was totally fine.

Good place to have some croissants and an expresso! A bit expensive but worth it. The waiters where very friendly.

“Delicous food, charming atmosphere”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

The food we had at La Clochette was easily the best western food we had in Sri Lanka and despite traveling on a budget, splashing out was well worth it. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the food and the portions were generous. It's clear the staff have been well trained and are happy. We had the beef and the sole, both of which were delicious and well presented. We would definitely recommend a meal here.

“Charming and great breads”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

Tucked away on a side street, this cafe offers some lovely treats - the breads and homemade jams are delicious. The portions are quite small and expensive compared to other breakfast options and the the wait is long but still worth it. There is limited seating so plan ahead.
