I stayed at the Amangalla and had breakfast, tea, and dinner where both days. Every meal was amazing with attentive service. I really liked sitting along the outside rail to watch the people and hear the birds. The food is great and very fresh. Breakfast...More

We were fortunate to stay at the Amangalla for 3 nights and eat here twice. A wonderfully appointed dining room that takes you back in time. The food was lovely.

This is definitely the smartest and most formal location in Galle though they did not complain that i was wearing shorts for dinner. The setting was very colonial with open windows and ceiling fans and lots of white jacketed waiters. The food was really good...More
