Lousy drinks and terrible ambience. Good environment for tipsy people, maybe they have courage to eat there also.

I ate here 2 weeks ago and the service was slow, I wanted to order several different things but they didn't have any of these things available which was disappointing. Food was ok, the highlight was the chunky chips which were good.

The first time we popped in was our arrival day for beer as the place was busy about 6:30pm and turned out to have an amazing little pub vibe and returned most days. The lion beer was nice and cold and also reasonably priced competitively but does include the standard 10% service you found in most restaurants on beach road.... More

This place is indeed happening during weekends and if anyone wants to party hard in Negombo, I would recommend Rodeo to anyone. If there was a bit more space then this place would have been even more better.

Nice interior, tasty food (especially lobster), cold beer, average prices, nice music. We liked this place much because it reminded us of true European pub!

We went with friends after a meal. Everyone was very friendly and the music good. Staff very friendly and the food looked ok but we didn't eat. If you like a lively bar, this is worth a visit.

MUSIC DJ AJ plays every night of the week except Thursday when there is a live musician HAPPY HOUR Daily Happy Hour is from 7-8pm and at weekends it's best to grab a table early or reserve one by calling 031 227 4713. FOOD Rodeo serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and everything in between! Each dish on Rodeo's extensive menu is made from scratch with ingredients bought fresh on a daily basis.
