The Bavarian, situated close to many of the leading hotels in Colombo, serves German food. It is the oldest and best German restaurant on the Island. The Bavarian has been in operation for a long time, and has undergone several ownership changes together with name changes over this period. It is located close to a high security area, and therefore a bit difficult to get to. There is parking available. After a recent refurbishment, the restaurant has a very pleasant and cosy interior. The Bavarian has a very small bar area and can seat about 85 persons for dining.

The menu is very extensive and the portions are very generous. There are plenty of meat, seafood and vegetarian main dishes, in addition to an extensive selection of appetizers, soups, snacks and desserts. The steaks (rump, pepper and fillet) are real hits. Some of the customer favourites are; Weiner Schnitzel (crumb fried escalope of pork), Schweineschinitzel (Cordon Bleu with Pork), roasted pork knuckles, grilled seer fish, crumb fried medallion of seer fish, Bratwurst sausages with Sauer Kraut and their mixed grill A ’la Bavarian.

A bites menu is available for those who want something to munch on whilst having a drink. This menu features chicken skewers, shredded spicy pepper beef, spicy potato wedges, barbequed chicken wings, frankfurters, beef sausages and much more. The pub has a good selection of beers, and their bar is well stocked.

The service is prompt and good, and everyone at the Bavarian is very friendly. The Bavarian is a great place to go with friends and family, or even on your own.

    Eating Out

    We love our food, we love to cook and we eat out a lot. We have travelled a great deal (at last count more than 50 countries) and we always indulge in eating out very frequently when we are on the road.  

    This page is our (my wife and myself) effort to give you the benefit of our opinion of as many Eating Out locations in Sri Lanka as possible. We have eaten at least 2 times in each of the restaraunts reviewed.
    We have rated all locations on Quality of Food, Service and Ambience. Each location has also been given an Overall Rating. A scale of 1 to 5 has been used, 1 being poor and 5 being excellent.  
    Pricing estimates are based on each person having 2 courses (out of starter, main meal and dessert) as well as a soft drink. Liquor and coffee prices are excluded. Pricing is categorised as follows:
    Inexpensive: Up to $12 p.p.Moderate: $12 to $25 p.p.Expensive: $25 to $35 p.p.
    Very Expensive:  Above $35 p.p.

    The above does not include taxes (12% at present) and service charges (usually 10%).
    Please do not hesitate to let us know what you think by clicking on comments.

    Happy Eating!!

    Best regards,
