On the first floor of the Old Dutch Hospital. Go up the steps to the balcony & keep going! Turn right towards the sea, & there it is!! Lovely food, friendly smiling staff, where you can enjoy your meal right over the sea below.

Description
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.
