Eating Well in Galle
Beach vibes, natural beauty and a soulful atmosphere makes Galle a top destination for holidaymakers. The city is home to some of the best villas in Sri Lanka and the number of ritzy restaurants located in the Fort area makes it a foodie paradise.
A dignified 18th century mansion is home to the Fort Printers. Elegantly designed, the restaurant interior is decorated with antique art and black and white photos of Ceylon in the olden days. Sweet-smelling frangipani trees line the courtyard and the entire structure seem to take guest back to step back in time. In fact, the atmosphere is just as beautiful as that of one of the olden touristic villas in Sri Lanka. The menu at Fort Printers is just as stylish and made from organic local produce. You can enjoy Sri Lankan dishes, Mediterranean-inspired fare and seafood dishes at their restaurant.
