“Excellent food and service”

Tequila Mockingbird
Ranked #26 of 188 Restaurants in Galle
Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 April 2018 via mobile

We came across this place in the Dutch hospital. Sitting out on the balcony, the staff were attentive, especially making sure the fan was strategically placed to keep 8 people cool.
The menu was a mixture of bar food and seafood on the specials board. Order the prawns - amazing! Burgers and curry delicious. My 6 year old loved the prawn curry and they could spice it up or down depending on taste buds. Relatively reasonable prices considering it is in the Dutch hospital. Lovely setting looking over the coast. Would definitely recommend.

A seafood platter for two. Excellent food, excellent value. Friendly attentive service. Good ambience being in a buzzy restaurant area in the Old Dutch Hospital within the Fort.
Not the place for a romantic quiet dinner and on the first level. I don't believe there is an elevator. We sat out on the balcony with a view of the harbour. A very enjoyable evening. Great name.

This is a new restaurant, in the old Dutch Hospital building with a great view of the harbour. We had a nice lunch at their sister restaurant yesterday, so thought we would have dinner at Tequila Mockingbird tonight.

We booked an outside table, and they held on to it for us even though busy which was good. The drinks menu had some unusual cocktails, of which the two we tried were excellent. Beers were cold and in bottles.

Food menu was small, but had a good mix of Sri Lankan and western food, all with a bit of flair (in the descriptions at least). We had a Japanese fish burger and a tuna steak. Both with nice fries and a well dressed little salad. Everything was simple and delicious.

Service was quick, friendly and professional. They also have cool coasters that make good souvenirs - we did ask.

Overall it was a very good experience. Really good food and drinks, excellent service, and reasonably priced.
