Had dinner here, had the grilled prawns and my husband had chicken curry. All fine no complaints at all. Easy enough to find, good service and good variety on the cafe menu.

Second time now and worth many more visits. Staff is very attentive and the food is tasty. Love the chilled ice coffee after a good walk around the fort. Meals are reasonably priced and right portions.

Pesto was lovely as was the ice tea, opulent furnishings inside make a nice atmosphere. Tuna was a bit wooden. Tables aren't really as suited for dinner as they are for coffee and cakes. Kids loved watching the movie on TV which was good for us but changes the stylish vibe a little

I had been to this place today. The ambience is good. Food prices are reasonable. I just had the cheese and tomato sandwich along with avocodo juice. Served with 10 minutes. This is near the galle fort.

The outside seating in front of the café is very nice. A good place to sit, have a drink and watch the tourists walking past. Food is very good. You can eat breakfast, lunch, dinner or just have a drink. I've been here a few times during my stay in Galle. Service really depended on the waiter. Sometimes quick and... More

We went here for afternoon tea. While the drinks were OK the service was dreadful. Given there is 10% added to the bill for service it would be nice if they delivered it!

The outside seating is beautiful.. small lanes, people walking past.. you can just sit with a book or listen to your favorite music for hours and you will not even realize how fast the time flies! They also have very good options of teas available! The food portions are decent... good options for food!
