“Love the food”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

If you are meat eater, this is the place to visit.
Love the food especially the pork and sausages.

Simple place with great ambiance.
Prices are reasonable.
Not all the waiters are attentive but generally they are well trained.

“RENOWNED FOR QUALITY & AMBIENCE”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a special restaurant that has been around through the thick and thin of years. The food is great and the ambience is just right. They have successfully attracted and sustained a loyal clientele.

Location is just right for the businessman as it is amidst the hotels and the business district on Galle Road. A packed restaurant is what I have seen in all the evenings we have been here. Consider reservation if you are counting on this place for taking your guests. Taxis are available and the doormen will happily marshall one for you.

The food quality, taste and portions earn A's here. Hygiene too earns an A. Seating is close and the atmosphere is bound to extinguish your boredom!

The food here is dedicated to the meat lover. And if you are a meat lover, then you must visit the Bavarian!

“Feast for meat lovers....”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

As a carnivore, I would recommend this to any one with similar taste.
The selection of meat dishes as well as the taste and flavours are unparalleled in my experience of eating in Sri Lanka.
Having frequented the place since my childhood, have very rarely been disappointed with the food. current favourite is their pork knuckle... mmm mm...

The service at times is slow, getting the attention of the limited number of staff can be tricky at times.

“Always a great and reliable restaurant”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is just one of those places where you go to get a good meal and drink - no worries about food quality, cleanliness or any of the other concerns in eating out while on the road. The service is a bit slow sometimes, but overall very good. I have eaten there several times...usually once a trip and have taken many colleagues there. The fried calamari starter is excellent, the draft beer spot on, and the dishes from the fish and chips to the daily special is always good. The seats are not that comfortable, but that is a minor point. Get there early or get a reservation...but if alone you can always eat at the bar counter.

“One of the best restaurants!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I've been here many times and without doubt one of the best restaurants in Sri Lanka. They do some great dishes and the drinks are fab.!
They are not too busy during lunch hour but for dinner you'll need to make a reservation to grab a table. All in all a great place for anyone who wants to go with family and friends. :)
