Good portions where good, little expensive for Sri Lanka though. Quality of food good tasty sausages, burger a bit overpowered by the sauce, potatoes salad excellent, coleslaw average.. fries homemade fresh and excellent. Service was average bordering on slow not many in to start so no excuse for tardy service.

We happened to be passing right on dinner time and love German food so stopped in for a meal. Nicely decorated, comfortable seats, clean, but slow - very slow - service. Had to reorder drinks - and there were only 3 other people in the restaurant, outnumbered 2 to 1 by the staff, who were offhand at best. Took longer... More

If you are reminiscent about German food from pork knuckles or cordon bleu this would be a great experience. Serves large potions with a typical Bavarian experience. Good selection of beer and cider too

When ever im in the mood for a hearty meaty meal...this is the only place which comes to my mind. They have been serving good food for the past decades you have to be lucky to walk in without a reservation to find a seat. They have a wide range of dishes to choose from...the pork knuckle and the mixed... More

We really enjoyed the place. Atmosphere was fun, food was tasty and came in great portions (the four of us could have easily be full with 3 mains and no starters). We had the chicken Kiev which was excellent and the lamb shank which was great. We highly recommend this place.

Anytime I am looking for good food and drink, I find myself always returning to the Bavarian. Colombo has tons of restaurants and I like to change it up often, but I always make sure I head back to the Bavarian. The staff is attentive and they know the menu well. The atmosphere is welcoming and genuine. Lastly, and most... More

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
