Great place to be. Had some drinks and meal. The portions were big with a real authentic flavor. I had the lagoon prawns, was absolutely wonderful. The service was pretty good too. On the negatives: The wine was served unchilled, but when requested they provided a ice chiller. The biggest negative I would say is the music was bit loud... More

We had lunch here and every item on the menu we choose wasn't available. Very slow service. The manager was very attentive but the general staff were very laid back

Just had couple of drinks and had some sri lankan curry with steamed rise and it was full of flavours. Only thing that i don't like is some local guys are walking in disturbing to the guest and hanging around. Overall nice place to be. Hope to visit again.

Hi there Many thanks for your review and I'm glad you had a good experience at Rodeo. I apologise that you felt disturbed by some locals. Normally we try to manage that and that is also why we have bars up at the front so we can lock certain people out if they have too much to drink! Thanks again... More

I am a specialist travel consultant for flying exotic so i love to get out and about trying bars and clubs for my customers. Rodeo is a small pub and from the outside it doesnt look so special and it certainly isnt going to win any interior design awards and some people think it looks a little dark and a... More

Many thanks for your candid review. I appreciate your comments. We have been thinking about a refurb of the interior but we are a little nervous to change too much for fear of damaging the Rodeo formula! Look forward to seeing you again soon. Best wishes. Janaka More

Our go to bar every night in Negombo. Great atmosphere, good music, reasonable prices and quality food(awesome currys). Always had a good night out with the girls. We tried a few other places some nights, but always ended up back at the Rodeo. Definately worth a visit. :)

Excellent atmosphere to be found here, great selection of food and a wide variety of drinks. Good entertainment with room for dancing. Janaka and his staff will provide a great evening in one of the best locations in Negombo.
