Very good fish, very good prices

We had a pleasant dinner with fresh grilled fish (exquisite). Prices were really convenient and we were completely satisfied. With a little music it would have been even better...

On this very touristic part of Negonbo, Serendib does not pretend to be the most fashionable, the most expensive. Just plain seafood and beverage for locals and tourists. Good smiling service.

the seafood was really fresh and worth the price as was the wine and the restaurant area is huge with views across the beach when daylight - it is a party type restaurant so if you have a large group it is definitely worth trying

We went with a small appetite and only had 2 entrees and they tried very hard to get us to have something more. Lovely setting right on the beach. Food was just ok.

This place serves the best seafood in town. Even though im not a fan of seafood, i must say grilled fish platter was the best. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. Cocktails & beers were available for a competitive price. No complaints against the food. Prices were also affordable. Nice music. Good atmosphere

Quite busy, but we were served our drinks promptly. It is one of the nightspots in this area. Reasonable prices and it serves food.

This place has very fresh yet affordable seafood and good view by the beach. Love the romantic atmosphere to dine in while watching sunset. Would love to come back again!
