Easter Brunch

Review by sadarens

My wife and myself were at the Galle Face hotel on Easter Sunday for brunch. The food, service and atmosphere was very good. I have to mention the excellent service of Mr Dhanushka who was very attentive and friendly...

Will definitely visit again

Travellers Bar experience

Review by sudhamudana London, United Kingdom

Very nice atmosphere for an early bite starting with the sunset. Music from downstairs gives good vibes on a Sunday

Very good service from Chaminda who was helpful in making the right choices and went over and above to suggest dinner options for my pregnant wife, who ended up having a great dish of deer fish off the menu.

The food overall was good

Re: Chaminda Kumara /Travelers Bar at Galle Face Hotel

Review by arundathim2021

As a Canadian Citizen I was amazed to see the excellent service offered by this fabulous individual Mr. CHAMINDA KUMARA. I have traveled the world and I've never come across a server who's so efficient and so caring...

In my opinion, he should be in a higher place and I think he can train many others to offer such world class service. I totally recommend the travellers bar and make sure you ask for Chaminda Kumara. I wish him all the very best and I'm thankful to him for making my evening an enjoyable and a memorable one. Fantastic service Chaminda 👍

GalleFace Hotel

Review by hansineej

I visit the Galle Face hotel often and my most recent visit was today. The historic atmosphere, good food, friendly service staff and the ocean view make it one of my favourite places to hang out with family and friends. I definitely recommend this hotel.
