Took them forever to bring the food which was lukewarm to cold. The fish had been visibly cooked before and reheated. All dishes had the same gravy with MSG and none were good. Our worst meal in Sri Lanka. Avoid.

The only positive part is the sitting on the high deck and a visit in the evening . The fresh wind blowing from the ocean, which is just a short walk away is just amazing . The food is just average which is further let down with the slow service , the fresh juice is a delight. The so called chef does not know english and my order of chicken noodles for my kids was brought with the fried chicken pieces and pale boiled noodles separately to be mixed by yourself , never ever have i experienced this kind of chicken noodles . If anyone accompanying you is not a sea food eater than they would be coming back hungry and tired ..

Went here on the recommendation of our Tuk Tuk driver (Kumara). The setting is delightful, on a first floor deck. The food was very good but beware the portions are very generous - one of our party ordered the "Fish Fingers" - and got 22 of them plus all the accompaniments. Another person ordered the Battered Prawns - same story, about 24 of these ! That said, we enjoyed ourselves sufficiently to return on another evening for a repeat performance. Great service, great food, great value.

If I had the chance to go back in time and change one thing in history, I would stop myself from going to Wunderbar last Saturday night. That's right, I would rather change a one restaurant choice than stop Adolf Hitler - it was that bad.

(And, no, the irony of it having a German restaurant name is not lost on me!)

When we arrived we were first told it would be an hour wait, so we went to go elsewhere - right then another waiter told us it was fine and he could seat us right away. There were plenty of seats upstairs and our drinks and food orders were taken quickly and efficiently so we thought everything was fine.

Then it all fell apart.

We should have seen the warning signs: no guests had food in front of them when we arrive, some were getting up and leaving in anger.

To save triggering my PTSD from the night I will summarize with bullet points:
-Food took 1h45min to arrive (without any updates from the staff)
-We did receive a side dish of french fries two minutes after ordering that was cold and clearly just from someone else's table
-We had to constantly remind the waiter for drinks that didn't arrive the first or second time
-When the food did arrive, most of it was cold
-We had to send that plate of french fries back again when they brought the same plate out AGAIN with our main meal

Maybe it was an off-night (it was a holiday week), but still: if you can't provide basic service for your guests - don't seat them.
