A must-see for a stay in the old town of Galle, the Old Dutch fort inherited from the Dutch and the English impresses both with its beauty and its excellent state of preservation. Here are some addresses to know if you want to have a drink or something to eat during your visit.
If it dates from a recent era, the Heritage Cafe is an address that has taken possession of an old bakery of the fort while taking care to keep the brick oven. The place now offers a mix of traditional Sri Lankan cuisine and contemporary influences.
Nicos is another great place to enjoy a rustic setting, close to a famous antique shop dating back to the 30's, Olanda.
For a drink, the Pilgrims Lounge offers a beautiful view of the ramparts. Mamas Roof Café has a roof terrace with a view of the lighthouse, one of the main monuments of the old town.
