I visited this restaurant in April with my parents, brother and sister in law. It has everything you are looking for, whether you want to relax in the restaurant at the back looking out to sea or if you want to party the night away in the bar area. The food menu is extensive and good size portions, we never... More

Serendib is on the main road but backs on to the beach so you can eat or drink away from the noise and fumes. Menu is good but waiting time can be quite long, food, while well presented and cooked, was average. Drinks were extremely expensive. I found the staff polite but a bit distant, with little of the friendliness... More

The menu is the standard Negombo menu, meat heavy, but a little more expensive. The vegan options are fried rice or spaghetti napolitana which I ordered for 850 - and they don't include any other veggies in their napolitana. Buuut my serving was HUGE, the spaghetti was authentically flavoured, my red wine was perfect at around 700, and the staff... More

Visited for dinner during the low season so as to be expected hardly anyone there with little atmosphere. The service was attentive and professional and the drinks well priced. We had the devilled chicken which was OK. Would probably have a different perspective on a busy night.

Cosy beach front pub - restaurant - hand out place. Had very tasty and damn hot calamari plate and ordered extra one too! Even consequences of very spicy food worth it! Very good beer food variety, so on hot day in the city - this one is great escape!
