**** Trip Advisor can you please amalgamate the double listing of this establishment **** OK we entered prior to visiting the historical museum opposite. Some of the reviews are rather unkind. Sri Lanka is not the fast service centre of the world.. Food comes when they are ready to serve it but when it does, the results are usually worth... More

During my stay in Galle I visited Mansion Cafe several times for diner. It serves a variety of some excellent local dishes. The Chilly Fish is likely one of the best you can get in Sri Lanka and is highly recommended. It can be spicy but ask the cook to make it to your taste. I liked also the curries... More

They serve great pizza, a large one was enough for the two of us. It was the best pizza we had in Sri Lanka, everything is made freshly.

See my review of the same place conveniently called 'the mansion cafe' on TA. A short recap of that review: too pricey, nothing special, tourist trap!

During our week in Galle we ate almost everywhere. I am 56, no gourmet and have never yet tipped a Chef in my life. This was a first. His Cream of Tomato soup was the best I have ever had and I was very pleased. The dish that followed which I remember as 'Chicken a l'orange' and was the first... More

Delicious cheesecake with caramelised bananas is yummy! The menu is simple but good value. Extensive mixed drinks selection. For a starting business venture, this place has potential. It is across a narrow street from museum, same owner.
