It is rare to find an establishment making even BETTER bread than twelve months ago but this is true of La Clochette. Competitively priced and excellent value for money, the food is a good break for those who don't want any more rice and curry...More

Good for a one night stand in Galle! Rooms are small, but clean, good air conditioning, good shower and comfortable bed. Not a lot of privacy in the bathroom, as it is separated from the bedroom by a curtain. Breakfast was excellent!! The best omelet...More

A lovely little place to have breakfast. The brioche was delicious, eggs cooked to perfection, fresh juice was scrumpalicious and the bred was the best I've had in Asia so far. Also tried the guacamole with toast which in fact was most like an avocado...More

The setting is nice (inside Galle fort) ... but some of the "famous" fruit juices ran out of stock when we were there, and the cakes had all sold out (at 15hrs). So we were a tiny bit disappointed....

Hi We opened this restaurant recently, coming form France. It is located in the Fort of Galle : 3 Parawa Street (a small road off Pedlar street, near the Remparts ; ask for the French Café as many people know. We are open from about 8:30 am till about 10:00 pm (however depending on the season and some special national days off in Srilanka). We work with local products and local young staff we progressively train : it is also our commitment to the country and we do our best with what we find in the place ; we don't pretend anything else. We serve BREAKFAST, BRUNCH, LUNCH, TEA/COFFE TIME, DINER. You will find (all home made in our bakery) : croissants, brioches, lemon and chocolate pies, fresh juices, good espresso and tea, etc..., as well as some typical French dishes as Coq au Vin, Sole fish in Riesling wine sauce.. Also some "family" food as Pasta and Pizzas. We also create new dishes from time to time. PATIO IN THE BACK SIDE, INTERNATIONAL MUSIC, FREE WIFI . Thank you :)
