We spent our final evening in Sri Lanka here after it was recommended by our guest house proprietor and loved it. I had the devilled prawns which were awesome along with excellent service what more do you need.

We went as a family of four to this restaurant. Service is above average and the waiter was very friendly and recommended dishes after listening to what we wanted. The place opens out to the sea so it is breezy and spacious. The food is very good. We had a seafood platter as well as some grilled fish and prawns.... More

Serendib restaurant is located right on the beach and allows one to enjoy drinks and dinner watching the sun disappear. The place is touristy, that's true, but the food is decent, beer is cold and they've got some nice cocktails on offer. I enjoyed my sea food platter although it was not the best I had.

Had our last meal here, right on the beach. Like most places hit and miss with the smoking on the tables, so glad we do not have that in the UK anymore Fish was fresh, served quickly and very tasty. Drinks and cocktails were plenty full. Would have eaten here again if we had stayed another night. Thanks

finishing our holiday with last night in Negombo. We opted for 2 seafood platters, with cocktails Staff were attentive, quick and organised....something generally lacking around more rural areas of Sri Lanka, these were definitely geared to the tourist market. The fresh seafood was fantastic, a thoroughly enjoyable plateful of delights, and cheaper than some at 2500 rupees each. Drinks competitively... More

Spacious restaurant with a dance floor and pub atmosphere in front and beach side dining at the rear. Seafood was very good, but not spicy enough for the local palate. Lots of tourists. Happening place. Good beer and wine available.

We found the food to be really good: excellent calamari and whole grilled fish. The seafood is obviously the signature dish of the restaurant, which is not surprising since it is situated right on the beach. The nightclub atmosphere is off putting for older people and there was a lack of quiet places to eat here. Even outside this was... More
