If you've been travelling around SL for a while, and fancy something different from curry for a change, you may disappointed. Nice people, nice environment, nice music, nice curry(!), nice curd, generous servings, but the chef's special salad... Smoked chicken from supermarket? Cheap Spanish olives. Canned mushrooms? Ok salad with avocado and pineapple but maybe bottled vinaigrette? Not much chef... More

Only had a drink here as a refreshment stop but very nice and offered good VFM. Also good service. Would have returned for something to eat but ran out of time!

Nice atmosphere, good service, tried daily special grilled fish with chips, food taste is standard. It will be much better if they had air conditioner inside to cool down after walking around

One of the best fish we had in Sri Lanka.. Lovely ambience however we were not allowed to sit inside as it was apparently reserved. Special mention for Mufassir..our server..very friendly and helpful. Would love to come back.

We've eaten lunch here a few times over the years on our numerous visits to Galle Fort and it is a great spot to have a break from wandering around the Fort and shopping. Consistently good food, a good menu and our boys love the milk shakes!

We came across Pedlar's Inn Cafe on Tripadvisor. It's a cute street side cafe, ideal for a quiet meal. I enjoyed their spicy spaghetti arrabiata. A good break from all the Sri Lankan food.
