Great little place serving delicious local rice and curry. We'd had lots of it on our travels around Sri Lanka and it was nice to find a good place for it in Galle where the restaurants seemed a bit more geared to the Western tourists.

The food is very nice. Simple home cooked meals in a small family house. Try the different currys and the fish. They dont serve alcohol.

Came here for lunch after seeing it recommend in Lonely Planet and it really is delicious. We opted for the vegetarian curry selection and the depth of flavours and variety could not be faulted. Furthermore the service is friendly and efficient, and the juices couldn't be fresher.

This is a modest little place, quite unashamedly run on a shoestring. You have to really look to find it, the sign is so small. The food is quite good, and though not great, the price is reasonable.

A local family-run restaurant, Café Punto is a go-to inside Galle Fort for friendly, generous, tasty, value-for-money meals. In an area touted as the most expensive in all Sri Lanka, this little eatery puts forward home-cooked dishes at arguably the most reasonable prices of the old town; with the pick of the bunch being a 5-strong spread of curries with...

Punto creates food from scratch so, if you prefer the real taste of real food, then you will find none better than Punto. The service is very good and it is a great spot to unwind and watch the hordes wander by.
