Good menu variety, not costly, convient location. Pleasant staff. Good wine selection. Some construction going on outside, but pleasant inside. Opens at 1800 hrs. Nice change of venue.

Food was pretty average. My husband had the local fish n chips. The chips were dry. I had the pork cordon Bleu it was ok.

Fantastic German GastroPub in Colombo. Highly recommended for a hearty, meat laden, meal with family or friends. Of particular recommend, the Pork Belly was the start of our table but all dishes served were very very good. Highly recommended for any visit to this city.

I have been to Germany. The taste of the food really reminds me of the real taste and aroma. Expensive but still worth a try!!
