The location is great, right in the middle of everything. Service was just OK, food was just OK, but if you are touring and want clean, this place serves the bill.

Had lunch here while on a tour of the Galle Fort precinct. Convenient location and very popular with tourists. Sat upstairs with a good view. Service, food and value were all average.

Great location to watch the sunset and have a drink. Otherwise the experience was a bit underwhelming. Clearly still in preparation for the high season, the place seems to target (only?) big tour groups. Not my cup of tea.

This location was a popular restaurant few years ago. Now it seems that it is over crowded during the tourist seasons. The buffet does not have much variety and the food served there is not worm at all times. The location is very well maintained...More
