Dinner was had here, with the wife and I choosing 2 options of the Chicken stir-fry. The meal was tasty, and the service quick, allowing us to satiate our hunger, however leading to more waddling to get back to the car!

Went there for dinner on 25th Feb with the family. The place needs a clean up big time! The cushion and seating covers seems very dusty which hasn't gone for a wash for a long time. Food was average, nothing special about it, but with hefty price tag. Definitely not worth the penny. Overall, not a very good dining experience... More

A busy place in a great location in Galle, but we fairly quickly got a table outside. The inside looked really interesting too though. We'd had a lot of Sri Lankan food so opted for the sandwiches which were really good. No alcohol served which wasn't a problem for us at lunchtime.

It is a beautiful cafe on the main walking street of Old town of Galle. The cafe has a European feel to it and has seating overlooking the streets. The food is fresh and tasty. I strongly suggest people to go and visit the cafe when in Galle

Stopped to eat here for a spot of light lunch, nothing special I am sure probably better places in the old fort area which we walked by influenced by this trip advisor rating, wish now we had followed our gut feeling which in past has served us well.

We had dinner in this nice restaurant. We ordered italian pasta seafood and aglio olio spaghetti. Pasta was better then we were in Italy. They have also very tasty milk shakes.
