Quite a happening restaurant & a famous one too. Ordered the chicken chopsuey after confirming it to be with fried noodles, but it was more like stir fried noodles with sautéed vegetables in oyster sauce. It was decent in taste. The sweet & sour chicken was below average- more like deep fried chicken dumplings in orange sauce, with very less... More

This restaurant had a nice place to have lunch and the food was good. It was such a relief to sit here after a long walk in the fort on a hot Feb day.. This place had buffet but the variety was not very exciting so we opted for a-la-carte..

Rundown place with rude and unskilled waiter staff. Half the tables were "reserved" without really being reserved. Ordering an ice tea the waiter seemed to take it as some sort of personal insult. Went here for sunset views - but not coming back!

Not sure why so many are listing negative experiences. We had a great meal here. It was relaxing, with a lovely view of the ocean and an ocean breeze coming in. Our server was attentive and friendly, making napkin sculptures for my kids and the rest of the table. Food may have been a little slow coming out, but it... More

We had a delightful curry lunch here. As we like spicy curries we asked for this and the cuttlefish and prawn curries, made specially for us were both as we like them. The cuttlefish was the best we have had in Sri Lanka. Our waiter was brilliant and he was extremely helpful. Even though the restaurant was extremely busy we... More

A friend and I came here to watch the sunset and have a beer. It's a huge, vast space - reminiscent of an Australian outback pub, with a large gallery/balcony space open to the outdoors. It's quite basic, but it will do the trick for a cheap beer.

A quaint colonial type restaurant on the west side of Galle Fort which makes it ideal to watch the sunset over the ramparts while enjoying a cold beer, glass of wine or a meal. Quite reasonably priced for the position and ambience too. The food is decent and the staff are pleasent. I have used it at irregular I tervals... More

Not impressed because grilled seafood was served cold and grilling lacked the BBQ aroma. I had cuttle fish, prawns and pastas. We could do better than this restaurant.
