The food was amazing as usual and definitely the best Italian in town! Sadly it's labor day that day and no alcohol can be served... But it was totally fine for us. No... More

The restaurant is quite expensive and the food is just average. We were waiting for our pasta for 1 hour, there was NO one in the restaurant except two of us...) But the worst thing in this restaurant is the service. It is just horrible! I've never seen in my life such rude, miserable and grumpy waiters. However the view... More

This boutique hotel is run by and Italian fellow and his partner , but real trick is the mother in the kitchen advising the staff how to work! We had a wonderful lunch and swim in the pool here.

Lovely little villa/resort owned and managed by an italian with loads of good taste! This is a must for a fantastic lunch after relaxing by the beautiful pool. WB is located right on the beachfront too of one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in southern SriLanka.

We spent Christmas Day relaxing here and made full use of the sun loungers overlooking the beach before having lunch with friends. The food was DELICIOUS especially the fresh home made pasta dishes we ordered which were cooked to perfection. The starters were excellent and I would recommend the tuna carpaccio or the beef carpaccio as they were superb. Sadly... More

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.
