In most of the restaurants in Galle the food is good. But in this restaurant I had the tuna with nodels and this was very good and tasty. Also the food for the kids was excellent. But.... the most important was the great service. Way...better than all other 4 restaurants we were the days before.More

Fab lunch here today as things are just beginning to open after the covid curfew. A shorter menu for now under current circumstances but beautifully presented, fresh and delicious paninis, the home made bread was delicious. Lovely setting, will be back soon!

Even with a limited menu, still a good choice for meat eaters and vegetarians. Their sour dough paninis were delicious. Wish I could have taken some home. Service efficient and friendly. The owner Sabrina needs a special mention, Lovely, friendly lady. Would certainly recommend and...return.More

This cosy café/bistro on Peddlar Street has a nice little art collection on display. Waiters are attentive and friendly, making the visit a pleasant experience from the beginning. I had the Tom Yum soup, and my wife had the prawn avocado salad. Both impeccable choices...for a light lunch. The ice coffees are nice, but their iced lemongrass ginger green tea is out of this world! That one is worth the visit on its own merit!More

When you step into the restaurant it feels like you walk into a cozy little courtyard from a long time ago. It has an intimate feeling and is filled with antiquities from the past as a part of the furniture and the decoration. We had...a part of an old sewing machine under our table for example. Really liked the style! We ordered pizza and my choice was the shrimp and garlic pizza. It was really good and you got salt, pepper, oregano and I think chili on the side and also some chili oil. It was a nice addition without having to ask for it! The waiter was polite and service minded. Overall a really nice place if you want a thin, crusty and very tasty pizza.More

Great style and lovely place to relax away from the 32degree heat. The lemonade options were great can recommend the ginger one and also the lime and mint. Perfect way to calm the midday sun!

We decided to have dinner on our first night in Galle at the Heritage Cafe based on the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Food was good and service was prompt. The only downside was that the restaurant was very hot the night we went.

We had a delicious brunch here a couple of weeks ago, with smoothies, egg hoppers and an avocado toast/poached egg combo. Achala was very friendly, and the whole team are always lovely!!

We have absolutely NOTHING to do with the recently built The Heritage Galle Fort Restaurant. Unfortunately, they are creating a lot of confusion by choosing a name very similar to The Heritage Cafe & Bistro Galle Fort... More
