This place is probably on the "approved list" of places guides are supposed to take tourists. It is quite large upstairs seating and packed for lunch. Service was almost non-existent and the food no better than the couple other tourist approved highway stops we made on our way around SL. If you are in Galle for a few days, there are so many other better choices.

A bit big, many groups, food is typical without being excellent.
But the view, especially at sunset, is fantastic! And you can share a glass of wine, rare in cheaper places in Galle Fort. Most places do not serve alcohol. Kins service. Try fried cashew nuts, as a meal with rice, or to the aperitif;

We ate here 3 times during the stay.
The venue is delightful. A colonial era resto.
The staff are friendly with only the occaisional SL idiosyncracy to spoil the visit.
Food was good value & tasty.
Lunchtime was busy with coachloads of tourists. Avoid!
Dinnertimes were great. Leisurely & pleasant.
Mains are R800 to 1000.
Icy cold beers from R375.
Try the wattalapan for dessert.
TOP TIP: Long trousers & socks in the evening to keep mozzies at bay.
Get there before 1300 for lunch to beat the hordes of packaged holiday makers.

Nice views from the terrace. Rice and veg curry is really good - delicate blend of spice and flavor. Veg sandwich is so-so. If ordering fresh lime you may wish to clarify bottled water otherwise normal water will be used. Also tell the waiter sweet or salty. They don't ask and assume salty. Service is fair. Old world decor.
