Description: The Rodeo Pub & Restaurant is one of Negombo's oldest and most favourite watering holes, having been opened by Janaka Weeramanthri way back in 1996 when the main street was a mere dirt track. The Pub can be found on Negombo's beach road approx. 100M before The Jetwing Blue Hotel on the beach side. OPENING HOURS: 10 am til late every night! MUSIC DJ AJ plays every night of the week except Thursday when there is a live musician HAPPY HOUR Daily Happy Hour is from 7-8pm and at weekends it's best to grab a table early or reserve one by calling 031 227 4713. FOOD Rodeo serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between! Each dish on Rodeo's extensive menu is made from scratch with ingredients bought fresh on a daily basis. Why not come and try one of our most popular dishes such as: Rodeo's Fillet steak with caramelised onions in a creamy peppercorn sauce Negombo lagoon jumbo prawns sauteed in garlic butter served with caper mayonnaise Pita bread chicken satay wrap with grilled yellow and red peppers, courgettes, carrots, leeks, and mayonnaise The Rodeo Big Breakfast (and it is BIG!). Bacon, eggs, sausages, baked beans and toast If you are in need of a quick and big feed, why not phone your order in ahead of time by calling 031 227 4713 DRINKS Imported and local liquors, spirits and beers are served along with a wide range of excellent cocktails. Why not try one of our most popular such as Moquito, Caipirinha or Long Island Iced Tea? A wide selection of wine and sparkling wine is also available.

We only popped in for a short time to watch a bit of football in the evening. Beer was cold and competitive prices. Nice atmosphere, but get there early if you want to sit at a table facing the street, or reserve.

Nice lively pub. We were here on our first night in Negombo. One of the staff members, one Preaveen, was very good to us. Chatted for a good while and very attentive. Great place if you're looking to have a few sociable drinks.

Nice bar, good food but took nearly an HOUR to come. Staff sauntered about or hung out with (smoking) mates at the bar. Others whod ordered after us got their food before. It took about 2 hours by the time we ordered a drink then food... Inexcusable
