Good for a one night stand in Galle! Rooms are small, but clean, good air conditioning, good shower and comfortable bed. Not a lot of privacy in the bathroom, as it is separated from the bedroom by a curtain. Breakfast was excellent!! The best omelet I had in Sri Lanka and very good and fresh fruit plate! Staff is very... More

A lovely little place to have breakfast. The brioche was delicious, eggs cooked to perfection, fresh juice was scrumpalicious and the bred was the best I've had in Asia so far. Also tried the guacamole with toast which in fact was most like an avocado bruschetta with a delicious French vinegraitte. Canot comment on le much or dinner but I... More

The setting is nice (inside Galle fort) ... but some of the "famous" fruit juices ran out of stock when we were there, and the cakes had all sold out (at 15hrs). So we were a tiny bit disappointed....

I enjoyed three meals at the lovely little restaurant over the course of a week whilst staying in Galle in August 2016. In each instance it was hard to go past the delicious bruschetta and the 'I love Asia' juice combination. With friendly staff and a relaxed ambience, La Clochette was a one of my highlights of my time in... More

Like many places in Galle it is clearly overpriced, 750 rps for my french breaksfast. However, my expresso was good, the brioche was nice as well but in the menu you just receive the brioche and a small piece of bread , with butter and the classic sri lankaise jam .. Still, it is a cute spot but too expensive... More

In a great location within the heart of the Fort, this cute old restored building offers good sized, spotlessly clean rooms, with great shower, AC, sporadic wifi, very friendly, helpful and competent staff, delicious food and juices, and a quaint chic French feel. With a cool central courtyard with outdoor seating, and rooms on a balcony level, we'd highly recommend... More

We had a very nice dinner at La Clochette. The food was excellent - we highly recommend the Zoum Zoum chicken and the cheese cake, yummy ! The decoration of the restaurant was original and cool; and the team was nice and helpful.

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 :)
