I would recommend A Minute by Tuk Tuk based on its location and the food. The staff were extremely friendly and the portions were large. The restaurant accepts credit card. The highlight was the view, i would suggest getting a table outside.

Paying for being closest to the seafront. Very ordinary food. Many other choices with less crowd in the same (Dutch Hospital) building.

I have had drinks in this place. I like the view so much. Over looking the sea. My friends ordered food, it was too spicy more than it should be really, so make sure you ask the waiter before ordering. I enjoyed my drinks.

Experience the fun and quirky side of Sri Lankan culture, food & hospitality at A Minute by Tuk Tuk. This unique lounge is first and foremost marked by its incredible location, on the eastern side of the Historic Galle Fort, with a wide verandah overlooking the pristine indian ocean. The vibrantly colorful logos pay homage to the lounge's namesake the Sri Lankan 'Tuk Tuk', which is today as synonymous with the country as tea and spices. This almost flamboyant style extends to the restaurant's menu where the chef has dreamed up a variety of Asian inspired tapas, salads and mains that will indulge your taste buds with previously unimagined combinations, all paired with a wide and vibrant selection of wines, cocktails and juices.
