Stopped in here for a drink while the kids ran around on the ramparts below. Nice place to beat the heat and watch the bay. The whole area around the Old Dutch Hospital has been remodeled into great restaurants with a nice courtyard.

This is located in the upper floor of the two storeyed Old Dutch hospital building in Galle Fort. It's not a big place. And it has a big reputation. For the above two reasons you may have to be in the "waiting list" to be...More

When staying is Galle, don’t have your first meal here. You will never like the food again anywhere. If my do try the lSSO or the prawn dish with the bread, you are going to be hooked. You might come back for your next meal...More

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.
