Deco on 44 is well situated in the old fort. It is a classic old colonial style building with good size rooms, adequate pool and friendly staff. Try the Sri Lankan breakfast of fish curry on roti pods, it is excellent.

This is my second visit to Galle and second meal that I have enjoyed at Deco on Lighthouse Street.

For me, it was the barbecued calamari with a fresh salad washed down with a couple of cold...
