After a week in Sri Lanka eating a variety of local dishes we came here on a recommendation and we weren’t disappointed. The food was very international (Vietnamese spring rolls, club sandwich, wood-fired pizza), fresh and very child friendly for western visitors. Welcoming service. The place had a healthy vibe with a thought to the environment which made the prices very understandable. Also, the delicious food came surprisingly quickly with so many custumers. Great place to go if looking for lunch in Galle.

We are three friends backing around Sri Lanka and we got this little pearl recommended. Placed in the small cozy and quiet streets with distances to the crazy traffic and everything. We got warmly welcomed by the staff and they made sure that we were comfortable - nice! Not least the food is also on point, we got the chicken pizza and shared a dish of seared tuna. It was sooo tasty!

Bottomline: totally recommendable!

Loved the place overall. Pizza was great and the decor was charming. Couldn't do much about the weather, which was HOT a few days ago when we were there in Sri Lanka

Stopped here one evening with my wife for coffee and tea after dinner. I had a latte and she had an iced tea. They were very good and we decided to come back again another night. The only reason we didn't give 5/5 is because the first time we stopped, maybe 8:00 PM, they didn't have some of the cold teas on the menu and thus we had to order something else. Although still good, I can't stand it when places have stuff on the menu that isn't available. Also, the second time we stopped which was also around 8PM, we were able to order, but they were closing down. Very typical of places in Sri Lanka but does not match up with online posted times.

Located centrally, this cafe is quite nicely done up, with a nice vintage european vibe to it. This is the only meal in Sri Lanka where we had to steer away from local delicacies and had to eat typical european and american cuisine. I think that is one drawback I can think for this place, otherwise the pizza and the fish & chips we had were quite good. I understand that the restaurant wants to cater to its larger customer base that eat the regular pizza and pasta, but I guess you cannot please everyone. Also the restaurant is a bit on the pricier side and doesn't serve alcohol.

All in all, a good meal.
