Good place for a light breakfast. They have both indoor and outdoor seating areas, and the environment is nice and cosy.

A pleasant rooftop café with some outdoor tables, serving light Italian-style dishes with healthy options. A good place for breakfast, brunch or an ice-cream. Nice service too.

A lovely place where you can experience real Italian breakfast with a wide variety of food. The staff is really nice and the atmosphere is relaxing. All in all I highly recommend getting breakfast there.

I just happened to be walking past this place when the waitperson said good morning with a smile. I walked in and sat outside in the sun & cool breeze. The food was great and it came out quickly. They also had free WiFi which...was great :) Sad that it was my last day, otherwise I'd come back here for sure!More

Lovely breakfast spot. Food was delicious and price point was great value. Family of 6 came for two mornings in a row and we ate til we were stuffed for our adventures for the day! Staff was very attentive and helpful in directing us on...what to see in the city. They even had a little postcard of the various site seeing locations that we used like a map and checklist of what to visit while in Galle. Highly recommend all their locations!More

I discovered this beautiful place while I was wandering around Galle. I had a brief stop for a light lunch and I had one papaya juice and I tried the panzerotti. They were absolutely delicious. Crispy outside, slightly chewy and incredibly light, with a yummy...filling of tomato and melted cheese. Be careful! it is very, very hot, you will burn your tonge. The place is very beautiful, with hanging plants everywhere and a chilled mood.More

Stopped at the Aqua bakery on our last day for lunch and we are very glad we did! Beautiful rooftop spot with plants all around - a very idyllic place. Food and drinks were fab, and Dinesh was a really great host.

Loved our experience at AQUA forno. They have quite an interesting menu👌🏼The cafe has a welcoming vibe. Amazing food. The space is very well designed to feel like a small oasis in the middle of a bustling city. Service was very good ❤️👍🏻

Dropped in for brunch after seeing their instagram pix and were horribly disappointed. Their croissants and break items are dry, dense and overbaked - i think they are not freshly made and probably sits in a freezer until guests come in. The food is nothing...like their photos! The staff are friendly and helpful, and the location on the rooftop with passion fruit trellises is beautiful but unfortunately it does not make up for really horrible baked goods in what is supposed to be a cafe specialising in breads and baked food!More

This was my third experience with Aqua Forno! Best breakfast I know of in Galle and an incredibly rare find of quality coffee in Sri Lanka. P.S. All three of the “Aqua” restaurants in the fort are absolute winners!
