A friend had recommended this place......and you could feel the buzz as you climbed up the stairs to the first floor. Get a table on the terrace if you can, the views of the crashing waves against the sea wall - and the sound of...More

Situated in the Dutch hospital this cute place is a must visit. We had beer and fries and watched the sunset which was spectacular. It is one of the few places open a little later in the night. I would recommend this place undoubtedly.

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.
