this place is famous for seafood and sri lankan rice and curry. this is the only place in Fort where they have a place for kids, lots of books, toys and colouring material. it also has the fastest WIFI in Galle. This cafe used to be an old bakery in fort during colonial period. The Barista Lavazza Coffee outlet is also in the same building. It serves the best coffees.
Favorite Dish: Seafood Platter, this platter has a very good portion of fish, prawns and cuttlefish nicely grilled.
During my stay in Galle i ate several times at the Punto Cafe cause i really liked the food and the service there.
The restaurant is a small place with only 5-6 tables and is run by a young family.
They were always very welcoming and service minded and the food was excellent.
I had their vegetable curry twice when i was there and it was really a feast and only set me back 500 rupees.
I also had breakfat there twice where i chose the oriental style breakfast and it was really good too.
This restaurant is totally my kinda place.
A small quiet restaurant with friendly service and where i can sit an hour after dinner and read my book in peace.
This is the kinda place i like to go to when i am on holiday.
I had a great stay at the nearby Seagreen Guesthouse and enjoyed the food at Seagreen Restaurant a couple of times. The breakfast was very good - with fresh fruit juice, tea, coffee, fruits, eggs, toasts... or curries, stringhoppers... everything what you need!
For luch, they offer homecooked rice and curry - so fresh and delicious!
It was hard to choose what to have for dinner because there are so many tasty things on the menue. We had seafood more than one time and it was simply great!!!
Favorite Dish: We loved the homecooked rice and curry for lunch. But the best is the seafood!!! Fresh king-prawns with garlic butter and pineapple salad - simply delicious!!!!
Sahana Coolspot is a great place for lunch after you've visited the shops and markets along Main Street in Galle. You'll find it just behind the large standing Buddha next to the vegetable market. The friendly staff will offer you fresh fruit juices and a wide array of "Short eats". These are a selection of different pasteries, Chinese rolls, mini pizzas and patties. If you don't fancy that, they do fried rice with chicken and egg. The prices are really cheap and you'll be full on 2-300 Ruppees. The locals also flock to Sahana for their cakes which are all made fresh by Mr Saman and his staff.
Favorite Dish: My favourite dish are the fish cutlets which are small fish balls which are quite spicy and very tasty!
This is one of many restaurants along the beach front in Unawatuna. The 3-wheel driver reccomended it to me. The tables or on the sand, with the surf not far away.
They serve a good variety of food and drinks. The service is good, as is the food.
Favorite Dish: Devilled Chicken with rice
The Rampart Hotel restaurant offers tasty food with nice views of the fort walls and seafront. Prices are reasonable and the staff are friendly. We only had sandwiches and fries here as a snack before a heavier dinner, but it was a nice relaxing place to have a meal!
Favorite Dish: Sandwiches and fries.
Entering the New Gate near the clock tower of Galle Fort and following the Rampart Street down to the sea you will see the Seagreen Restaurant on your left side. It´s small - just 4 tables - but you will be surprised! The menue is great - for everyone`s taste! I´ve eaten the best king-prawns in my whole lifetime! There is also a big variety of fresh fruit -juices. The staff is very friendly and the owner is always willing to tell you lot of things about Galle and Sri Lanka while waiting for the food. If you travel individually, the owner also can organize transports or small roundtours with his own van. The prices are really good. All in all it`s a wonderfull place to have a relaxed evening in the beautifull old town of Galle. Or try to have a fried rice for lunch before starting to visit the Fort!
Favorite Dish: Fried king prawns with chips and salad... DELICIOUS!!!
Fried Rice - vegetarian or with chicken/seafood... GREAT AND CHEAP!!!
Fresh fruit juices... Refreshing, tasty and full of vitamines
We were very happy to find this place which fills a void in Galle Fort, where we had a hard time finding budget restaurants. It is small and intimate with just three tables, and it has a very nice view of the ramparts, good food, cheap prices, and friendly service. It began in October 2005 as a juice bar (hence the name), but people kept requesting food so they started serving that too, and they do a very good job of it. They do not add tax or service charges onto the bill, which is unusual in Sri Lanka.
Favorite Dish: Grilled Tuna with Salad Rs 200
Grilled Prawns with Chips or Salad Rs 250
Apart from the guesthouses, Aruna's restaurant is one of the few budget options for eating in Galle Fort. It's a tiny family-run place with just four tables. They do pretty good pizzas and curries, and the service is quick and the price reasonable. Since there is no staff other than the couple who live there and run the place, they may close unexpectedly if they have something else going on (even if that something else appears to be nothing more than standing in the doorway watching the world go by).
The restaurant is located opposite to the bus station. I had rice and curry, a bottle of cok, and a cup of tea for Rs100 for the first day, but Rs125 for the second day. Dont know why???
Ther curry is a quite spices, although looks alright (meaning noit fantastic). See another pic for the food.
