“I've lived in the Galle area 1 year and love this place”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I have now been living in the area for 1 year (I'm from Edinburgh in Scotland) and a few months ago I started coming to Talpe Beach Club. I really love it. When the sea is rough so swimming at our normal favorite places is not possible this is the perfect place to come with children (or without) to chill out. The staff are great and friendly and the food is very good. We now regularly come here to hang out. It's beautiful and the perfect place to spend time with our friends.

“our favourite place on this stretch of coast”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Having spent 7 weeks on this stretch of coastline in February and March this year where we ended up trying pretty much every place and this is the one we consistently chose to come back to. Whilst the food maybe not as good as WB (Italian) a few yards down the beach the pool, atmosphere, friendliness of the staff (we had a 3 yr old in tow) and, to be clear, the very, very good food made this the standout place for us. With the new management having taken it over recently they really cared about getting the small details right and most importantly making sure you were having a good time. I won't list all the things that make this place but the delicious juices, fresh fish, service, helpful kids menu all made this a wonderful spot to spend a day...yes you are not kicked out after lunch but are free to lounge around to spend the day there - by the pool or on the beach.

“nice spot to enjoy a dip in the ocean”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

great food, great service.
Good & relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the beach at anytime.
And if you don't like sea (the ocean can be rough), there is a swimming pool for the smaller ones.

“One visit wasn't enough!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014 via mobile

I came here with a large group on several occasions and not once did it disappoint. Connie and the staff were welcoming and friendly, the setting was beautiful but most importantly the food was delicious. Definitely the best seafood I had during my 4 week stay in Sri Lanka, especially the coral fish!

Definitely worth a trip to if you're staying in Galle or Koggala, not only for this great restaurant but also for the lovely beach, beautiful sunsets and fisherman watching!

Thank Adam M

“Cosy, stylish no fuss restaurant with tastey seafood.”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stayed in Koggala and ate here twice because the food, setting and service was very good and we would highly recommend going evening or day time.
From the moment you enter you are welcomed by the owner and offered to sit where you prefer. The decor is stylish, the setting spacious and there is even a pool if you fancy a dip - although we suggest doing so before you eat.
The restaurant manager was extremely welcoming and engaging in conversation.
We ate seafood because it is fresh and local. The tuna and tiger prawns were well cooked and tastey.
Do go there if you are not far from Talpe or Koggala - a must try!
