This is my second visit to Galle and second meal that I have enjoyed at Deco on Lighthouse Street. With an extensive menu, friendly efficient staff and lovely ambience, Deco is a perfect place to enjoy dinner on a balmy February evening. For me, it was the barbecued calamari with a fresh salad washed down with a couple of cold...

Plenty of sandy beaches a tuk-tuk ride out of town. The hotel is a 1925 art-deco mansion in the middle of the Fort, converted, decorated and appointed in that style, absolutely charming. The rooms are not luxurious,...

We had some awesome meals at the hotel. Thank you to all staff and management for looking after us. The food was fresh and just delicious. My two boys were just chuffed with the amount of food they got for breakfast. Very nice ...next time we have to visit Galle for a longer stay.
