We are a regular customer at mount lavinia. The food is very authentic and the staff are considerate. We always leave this place feeling happy and content. One of my favourite picks to dine in Nuremberg

We had dinner there twice. The food on offer, as a vegetarian family, is great. Nice variety of vegan specialities, wonderful drinks and excellent desserts.

We were recommended Mount Lavinia as a good place for vegetarian food, and indeed it was. It was not cheap, but the service was very friendly, the waiter spoke good English and the food was excellent. I would recommend Mount Lavinia to anyone, not just vegetarians.

The food wasn't bad form one hand and not good form the other. The mixture of eastern kitchens gives the visitors wide ranges of options but the level of the food as I said before didn't excited at all. Prices are fair and service was good

Mount Lavinia is truly a unique experience. I stumbled upon this restaurant when exploring Nuernberg for the first time. You walk in to a beautiful representation of Ceylon culture and feel at home throughout the whole experience. The Duck Padre was spectacular. Excellent place for anyone that enjoys a relaxed style of dining accompanied by exquisite cuisine.

I was there for the third time in this wonderful Sri Lankan restaurant in Nurenberg. The location is great. 15 minutes by leisure walk from Nurenberg train station and very close to shops like C&A. The food is as authentic as it can get and they have great options for Vegetarians. They offer an Ayurveda based menu and give you... More

I was in Sri Lanka for a month and every meal I ate there was MUCH better than this. They ask how spicy you want the food, my answer was "very" which was ignored as the food I was served after an hour wait was amongst the blandest I've ever eaten. The cassava curry was as tasteless as a boiled... More

Are you one of those tosspot overlords who voted for 'leave' at the Eu ref? The waitress didn't understand you saying 'very hot' as German is the official language in Germany. I agree that that food came late, and I apologise for the extra drink my staff inadvertently charged. However, there is no correlation between the quality of my food... More
