The Wunderbar has great staff. I've eaten at Wunderbar several times and the traditional Sri Lankan food is always excellent. The seafood can be hit and miss depending on the season. Not everything is 'fresh', despite what is claimed on the menu, so it's a good idea to ask the waiter what is fresh on the day. Food and drinks... More

We had devilled pork and chicken with rice. It made a change from curry and we enjoyed it. Nice view of the ocean while eating and quite different watching the train pass through just in front of you!!

We tasted the fish as the waitor recommended it so us. They just fished the same morning and made a grill in the evening! Really delicious! Never had such a great fish before!

My wife and I are seasoned travellers. We have been to many places in the World and we accept that there are differences everywhere. However, we feel that first and foremost a restaurant should provide a good meaningful service to its clients rather than be just a money-making enterprise for the owner! This experience in Bentota, during our whole stay... More

This place right off Bentota beach is quite lovely. The food is good, waiters are attentive and portions are large and decently priced. The Wunderbar also has a small turtle sanctuary where you can see some of the baby turtles they recently saved and will soon release into the wild.

Great place our favourite, seafood to die for grilled giant prawns and lobster. Reasonably priced and great staff. The train from Colombo to Galle goes past at least once whilst you are in there which made it for us!

Would recommend the dine by the beach option instead of staying. Ask for the fresh catch to be displayed and chose your options of cooking as you sip beer watching the sunset . Clean , safe and lonely beach , would love to go back there any time.

We were twice in that, much adverised, restaurant. The first time everything was fine. The second was a failure. The jumbo prawns selected by us downstairs shrunk so much during cooking that it was obvious that someone was pulling a trick. It is a comonly used method to atract customers by displaying food portions (especially seafood) in front of the... More
