Quality of the food has gone down, new staff not bothered about the customers at all. Not worth for money

Dark and grim looking place, no friendly staff and loud music. If that's your cup of tea, you're good, otherwise, search a different place.

We went here for Sunday brunch and the food was very good. The mixed grill and French toast went down a treat. It's a bit on the small side and unfortunately doesn't have an outside area which lets it down a bit.

The best watering hole in Negambo. A must visit if you ever come in to this part of the world. Order the fried beef if your in that mood and the garlic cheese toast... yum yum. Nice selection of liquor too. Love the place except for a few unruly locals. The only downside.

The burgers were tasteless and the beer selection on the menu was just that. Only on the menu. The first 3 things we ordered from the beer menu was out of stock.

Rodeo is your quintessential local pub. No town should be without at least one. Dining out is not always required to be an event, especially when you are on holiday. The menu is quite extensive and, happy hour & a specials board are also offered daily. The food is well portioned, reasonably tasty & well priced. The range of drinks... More

The Rodeo Pub & Restaurant is one of Negombo's oldest and most favourite watering holes, having been opened by Janaka Weeramanthri way back in 1996 when the main street was a mere dirt track. The Pub can be found on Negombo's beach road approx. 100M before The Jetwing Blue Hotel on the beach side. OPENING HOURS: 10 am til late every night! 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. Why not come and try one of our most popular dishes such as: Rodeo's Fillet steak with caramelised onions in a creamy peppercorn sauce Negombo lagoon jumbo prawns sauteed in garlic butter served with caper mayonnaise Pita bread chicken satay wrap with grilled yellow and red peppers, courgettes, carrots, leeks, and mayonnaise The Rodeo Big Breakfast (and it is BIG!).
