I stopped by twice during my weekend in Galle Fort for a light lunch. Enjoyed a tall glass of iced tea, gazpacho, and shrimp with mango. Perfect on a hot day. The high tea looks tempting. Food is reasonably priced for the quality and setting.

A Christmas afternoon tea in a fabulous historic building. The service was second to none and pretty good value for money , we left a wash with tea. The food was nice and we are off back there next week for the same thing.

We stayed in the hotel for a few days and I can confirm it is lovely (just to prove this is a totally unbiased review) however the restaurant is distinctly average (verging on a little rubbish) and in view of this rather overpriced. Service and...More
