Simple but authentic food, great service, clean and hygienic. We had the Sri Lankan curries which were good along with a couple of drinks. Unsure if wifi. No alcohol.

None of that Nescafe swill so common. No. Fresh ground and infused in a large French Press. I told the owner "I'm a good cook.... More

We walked pass this cafe and decided to give it a try. It's a family run cafe, simple and cozy. We came for dinner and order curry chicken and curry prawn. It actually came with a few other veggie dishes (ocra, potato, bean, etc). The food taste authentic and home cooked. The taste was not what you get in 5... More

I've been to Galle Fort (Sri Lanka) a number of times since my first visit to Sri Lanka in 2011. I was fortunate to come across this small, relatively inconspicuous place owned by a hardworking couple, on my first trip. Once I discovered how good it was, I would go there for breakfast and dinner most days and it never... More

if you have a chance to go to Galle, you should visit the Punto Cafe. The Punto Cafe is easy to find, becuse it is situated in the center of the Fort. Inside the Fort, there are so many cafes and restuarants. I confidently recommend the Punto Cafe. I assure you that you can spend the splendid time.

Good value breakfast prepared with care. After many other more expensive but less tasty breakfasts in Sri Lanka we were very happy and surprised to find Cafe Punto in Galle Fort. We did have to wait because the food was prepared from scratch. The service was friendly and the decor simple and tasteful creating a nice atmosphere. At 500 SLR... More
