Lonely Planet brought us to the Dutch Hospital and we had high expectations. Turned out it’s a nice building filled with expensive restaurants and two souvenir shops. Nice place, but not as special.

This interesting old building is now home to many restaurants and gift shops. We had a meal upstairs at the Tequila Mockingbird. Good prices and great food overlooking the ocean.

I had a great massage at Olu Spa, reasonably priced, very professional. Some lovely restaurants around. The soccer was on the big screen in most places

I am a bit disappointed with Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct. Coz, nothing much to shop. The restaurants are too standard.

Nice location and interesting history - but really just a housing of tourist places etc - so not really a destination in itself within Galle Fort.
