The place is very beautiful both inside and out. Outside the place the atmosphere is quite similar to that of the Galle fort and inside the setting is quite unique and colourful. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious too. You have access to the beach as well but we couldn't go since it was a bit dark there. They offer both indoor and outdoor seating and there are many photo locations if you have a good camera. Also, they have carefully though about all the details of the restaurant. Highly recommending for groups or couples for a chilled night out and dinner.

I loved the Dutchman's Street as soon as I saw it as it had a very eye catching exterior with the signboards pointing in different directions with street names and the quaint little car parked inside the garden for show !
Loved the ambience and decor - the garden leads to the Matata beach and there's also a set up on the beach for those big togethers ! The menu was also very interesting, everything from Western to Sri Lankan- pizza to fried rice or seafood. I went for the Pizza Margeruita and Mint Cooler - loved the thin crust - so tasty !
Perfect place for families and couples - enjoyed by both locals and tourists. Prices are reasonable ranging from Rs 850 upwards.
The waiter was also very attentive and made sure me and my sister were comfortable.
Perfect setting and awesome atmosphere in Matara fort !!

With its very unique setting, a small enclosed cobblestone street within Matara Fort, the Dutchman’ Street is one of the best restaurants in Matara. It ends at the beach, which means the atmosphere is enhanced by the sound of crashing waves.

The menu is eclectic featuring everything from local food to quesadillas, pizza and Thai Seafood or Greek salads, there’s something for every palette.

Service is good, although our waiter was a bit confused by some of our requests. The owner / manager was extremely attentive.
