Didnt enjoy the place at all. Was very warm, not enough fans. Tables were long for a lot of people & not possible for a private talks, etc. But a great place for a a group of friends i believe.

Had a hamburger and pasta (regular tomato sauce, came with parmesan), both pretty nice. The prices were fine, the beer was cold :)

No argument. Best place for a Friday night. Even though the pub it self is small the staff and the owner Janaka arranged a temporary place even outside till we get a table. The crowd was good but few dodgy locals ruined the dance floor.

No matter how long or short your stay in Negombo, you must pay a visit to Rodeo! The owner and staff are super friendly and welcoming, day and night!
