We spent some time in the immaculate garden before dining. The wine list and menu offer a pleasing choice of options. Service is attentive and food is delicious. On the pricey side, but worth it. Recommend.

Olive oil, bread & Parmesan all really good quality if you are missing these things in SL. Service pretty good, maybe a little impersonal but it was very quiet (only one other table). Pasta good, but not great, way too much garlic, overpowering dish. Salads...More

Description
A sensational 2 room boutique hotel and restaurant in the south Gold Coast of Sri Lanka. WB is a private house but also the essential location for food and sun-seekers; it’s a secluded and stylish retreat just minutes from Galle where you can relax by the sea and indulge in delicious Italian cuisine accompanied by a good choice of wines. Chill out in tropical lounging pavilions, go for a dip in the beautiful coral lagoon and dry off on sun drenched loungers whilst enjoying the beautiful panorama of the ocean. The Italian owner’s classic architectural styling has been cleverly combined with monochrome interiors and luxurious furnishings that invite you to do no more than relax and imbibe.Indulge in a daily-changing menu that includes homemade choice of sauce for pastas, freshly baked "ciabatta" bread and plenty of fresh seafood. Items such as Italian antipasti and real Extra Virgin Olive Oil are specially imported from Italy for authenticity. Evening menus can always be pre-arranged whilst our scenic location makes WB the ideal place to host private parties that can be tailor-made to meet your individual desires and needs. You are welcome and as the coral lagoon offers safe and secluded swimming year-round it is a comfortably reassuring choice.
