From local to international you can get it here. A beautifully restored restaurant with great local seafood playters, fresh salads and amazing pizza! Make sure you try the prawn pesto pizza straight from the wood fired pizza oven.

Went for dinner, food was ok, lovely setting in the indoor garden, colonial feel in the center of Galle. Prices reasonable. Lots of non Sri Lankan food if you’re tired of curries. Great Cafe attached played funky tunes and ditto interior. Would recommend!
