A friend and I came here to watch the sunset and have a beer. It's a huge, vast space - reminiscent of an Australian outback pub, with a large gallery/balcony space open to the outdoors. It's quite basic, but it will do the trick for a cheap beer.

A quaint colonial type restaurant on the west side of Galle Fort which makes it ideal to watch the sunset over the ramparts while enjoying a cold beer, glass of wine or a meal. Quite reasonably priced for the position and ambience too. The food is decent and the staff are pleasent. I have used it at irregular I tervals... More

Not impressed because grilled seafood was served cold and grilling lacked the BBQ aroma. I had cuttle fish, prawns and pastas. We could do better than this restaurant.

We had lunch at Rampart Restaurant after a hectic day in Hikkaduwa and Galle. We ordered devilled chicken and chicken fried rice along with Ice Tea. The devilled chicken was good but the fried rice tasteless. Location is not bad. Food delivery took a while.

Had lunch here on advice from our guide/driver. It was so busy with all the tourist buses and buffet!! Not a place we would have picked. We asked for menu and ordered Sri Lankan curry- would take 30 minutes and the lobster 100g Salad. The curry was nothing to write about and watery with pre- frozen vegetables. The grilled lobster-...

We had our lunch here and the food is just great! The service is quick and prices are okay. Not cheap but not very costly either. Above all, the 1st fllor place offers great views to the sea and its a marvelous experience there.

Had a late lunch whilst on tour of Galle sights. It was a little mediocre & not that tasty. The service was good & fairly prompt. The view was very pleasant & enhanced the meal.

We have eaten at some great places in Galle so when we saw the Rampart Hotel/ Restaurant we thought the building and location was perfect for a lovely lunch. How disappointed were we. We were visiting with our Sri Lankan friends and we all had a different dish and all were very disappointed. How can you get a club sandwich... More

We went to this restaurant while visiting the city of Galle. The seaview was pretty amazing. The food was very good. I tried the sri lankan prawn curry, which was a little spicy but soften with coconut milk, It was great! I also ate a dish with lentils which was also great. I recommend this restaurant when visiting Galle.

Thank Pato C
