Food was decent - we ordered a chicken sandwich and pasta arrabiata. Pasta was well seasoned and sandwich was nicely pressed with crunchy, not soggy fries. I also liked that when we ordered the chicken sandwich, we asked for no mayo, and the server pointed to a 200Rps cheaper sandwich as opposed to just charging us for the more expensive... More

Stopped off for lunch and was impressed with the extensive menu. All dishes were freshly prepared and tasty from a pasta dish to grilled prawns, local curry and a bellied cheese sandwich. Service was good, prices reasonable and fast wifi. Good choice.

The restaurant is located in a Lovely vibrant street in the Galle Fort area. It had a limited choice in vegetarian food but most of what was there was good. We were staying close to Unawatuna and vegetarian food in and around that area was terrible so good here was a welcome change. The Pesto pasta was yum though the... More

We had heard good reports of this cafe so gave them a try one evening. Service was good and attentive but I did not think the food was of a very high standard. No big deal - you live and learn.

Tables at the front are nice, ones inside feels more like in a corridor. Pizzas aren't great - delivered from the take away over the road. Pasta was nice. No alcohol, usual soda drinks otherwise. So-so service. Not great value for food and service. Better places off the main streets in Galle Fort. Church street social almost same prices for... More

We ordered one prawn curry and one calamari curry with country rice. Very tasty. So much that we asked for a bowl of the curry sauce so we had extra! We have been travelling around India for 3 weeks and were pretty curried out but this was a great find! The rest of the menu was European but check the... More

Must visit place when in the fort.. if u are tired or feel the heat after a walk.. This is a awesome place to sit back and relax... They are pretty popular but you should get a place to sit mostly.

According to reviews we'd read, this place had the best coffee in town. After drinking it, it occurs to me that whoever praised the coffee here must also think the world of Starbucks, because it was dreadful. Nice cafe itself, just don't expect a good coffee.
