    The Theme / Restaurant Concept

    The Galle Fort is deeply rooted in history and owes a lot of its aura and atmosphere to its Dutch settlers back in the 17th century. Galle itself is one of Sri Lanka’s main ports. It is no surprise that we have taken cues from the best of these to recreate Galley52. A ‘galley’ as you might know is the ‘kitchen’ of a ship. A galley is also a type of ship that requires multiple oars. These lend nicely to what we’re about. And 52 of course, is our address. Our eatery and coffee shop pay homage to our rich heritage in the Fort. When you walk in, you’ll almost get the feeling of being back in a time of early settlers when sea travel was the only form of cross country journeys.
