Nice restaurant, not very big though. We called to make reservations and were told it wasn't necessary. Good thing we should up at six when the place opened because most of the tables were reserved! I had the beef stroganoff. It was very tasty. The portion was huge enough for two people. My husband had a lamb shank which was... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for a long time. It is very popular with young crowd. Can get over crowded and as the tables are very close to each other privacy can be an issue. For dinner a reservation is essential as we noticed so many were turned away. Good ambience with typical German pub atmosphere & decor. Very... More

When you want a change from the local cuisine head to the Bavarian you won't be disappointed. Good menu well cooked food which is nicely presented. Atmosphere is different, and despite the tourist prices you certainly get good value for money. Remember to add taxes to the menu price.

We had been traveling for a while by the time we got to Colombo so we decided we needed German-sized beers and steaks. And that's what we got. If you need a break from curry/kottu/hoppers/noodles, then this is the place.

Love the food, big big servings. Most dishes are good for 2 persons. I love to eat here and then take the leftovers home and eat it the next day as comfort food

One of the oldest restaurants in Colombo to my knowledge. I have visited this place even at a very young age. The ambiance remains to be the same with typical German Pub wooden furniture & set up. The Staff are extremely welcoming and receptive compared to many other Sri Lankan restaurants. The food is really great and the sizes of... More

We were staying at the Taj hotel in Columbo and wanted to explore the local area and decided to pop in to this establishment, which was in the near vicinity to the hotel. We arrived after 9pm, which is quite late for Columbo and the restaurant was quite full. We were looking for some good German draught beer and a... More
