Description: Hi We opened this restaurant recently, coming form France. It is located in the Fort of Galle : 3 Parawa Street (a small road off Pedlar street, near the Remparts ; ask for the French Café as many people know. We are open from about 8:30 am till about 10:00 pm (however depending on the season and some special national days off in Srilanka). We work with local products and local young staff we progressively train : it is also our commitment to the country and we do our best with what we find in the place ; we don't pretend anything else. We serve BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH, TEA/COFFE TIME, DINER. You will find (all home made in our bakery) : croissants, brioches, lemon and chocolate pies, fresh juices, good espresso and tea, etc..., as well as some typical French dishes as Coq au Vin, Sole fish in Riesling wine sauce.. Also some "family" food as Pasta and Pizzas. We also create new dishes from time to time. PATIO IN THE BACK SIDE, INTERNATIONAL MUSIC, FREE WIFI . Thank you :)

Reviewed 4 April 2014

If you are tired of the rice&curry, you can eat French baguette with French fries.The patio is smart, very quiet and cool.

“Love the courtyard at the back ”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

We decided to try something different for a meal out and stumbled upon this place. The setting was lovely- small tables and benches in a secluded courtyard with little lights and plants. We had a burger and a dessert each which were very good.

Thank grace c

We stopped here for breakfast and had some really authentic brioche and jam - delicious. The coffee with was great too but I was sad they didn't have croissants the day we visited

“Why call this french ?”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Longing to have something else than curry we walked into la Clochette ,but the concept is tottaly
strange ,by all standards : they have croissants ,you can look at them ,but only can have them by
ordering as take away .....trying other snacks ,choice is poor ,and nothing slightly french .
To finish ,the music was so loud ,and inconveniet that we rushed away,

La Clochette Ba... ., Gérant at La Clochette Hotel Restaurant, responded to this review, 6 April 2014
Dear Madam, we are normally happy to read constructive critics. Yet we found yours extremely excessive if not aggressive, especially since it is based on wrong assumptions :
Since you are wondering what is French we have :
Brioche, Baguette, pains au chocolats, croissants (when not sold out), butter (famous Elle et Vire), Chocolate, Coffee, and .... 2/3 of lunch and dinner dishes !! And 1/2 of music !
May be you did not have time to check...
Apart form that when the music is too loud when we go somewhere we kindly ask if they can put it lower and this is done immediately and with smiles : easy and nice. Because some like it loud , others like low...
Excess in ratings and comments may not give credit to them anyway.

I've been reminiscing upon my time in Galle Fort during July 2013. I have many fond memories of La Clochette and It is fantastic to find this excellent restaurant - which during my stay was seemingly overlooked by diners - is now ranked #5 out of 70 restaurants in Galle. Thank you Charles & Gaelle.
