“Good food , good service and excellent juices .”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

This colonial style restaurant succeeds partly because its well run with a varied menu .

But also by the high quality and standards the kitchen achieves two people ordered the calamari , and I ordered the heritage special, a delightful combination of curry, prawns, okra , boiled rice and potatoes .

The service was quick and efficient

The price of 32$ US was good value

“Good food and service”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

The overall standard of food in Galle is pretty high and somewhat reflected in the prices as, frankly, food costs are disproportionately high. The Heritage Cafe is exactly this - pricey for the region but good quality food and service in a clean and comfortable setting. I am here preparing for a group visit next year and I would return to this restaurant.

“Great Coffee”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 via mobile

I understand that Barista Lavazza Cafe is co-joint wt Heritage Cafe, but we only had coffee and cake/brownie/choc cookie at Barista Lavazza and loved it. Took a much needed break from our exploration around Galle Fort area. Such a pleasant and cool place wt excellent coffee to hang out at.

BY the way, we also tried out the Barista Lavazza outlet at Hikkaduwa too.

This is quite a pleasant spot for coffee or even dinner. Coffee is great and we had dinner and it was quite good. Service was also good.

“Decent food but tourist prices”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We had the Heritage Special Curry Rice. At abt LKR850 its much more than a local restaurant price and it has been westernised in terms of spices. If you want a good local lunch and enjoy a bit of chili then this is not the place. Otherwise its very clean and the staff seem pretty good - and it has free and decent wi-fi
