Enjoyed a light lunch here. Cold drinks are really refreshing lots of great mixes. Didn’t have pizza but they look amazing. Lovely building and furnishings.

Nice atmosphere and interior, Galle prices but nice cold drinks selection. I had an iced green tea with lemongrass and cheesecake (the latter was average).

We went here three times in two days because we liked the place so much! Coffee is great, fresh juices and breakfast were excellent. The same can be said about the service, very, very good. Many thanks to Amila and Lasith!

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.

We went to the Heritage cafe several times during our stay in Galle - it’s a great place to relax, with a large cafe and restaurant area and free WiFi. The food is great, excellent pizzas if craving something western, slightly expensive but reasonably priced...More
