Went to Rodeo for an early dinner! There were a few people in there but not too busy! Had a lovely tostie and chips and a beer for about 1000 which I though was good value! Massive portions and really good food! Staff were very friendly and there was a nice atmosphere! I imagine it would have been a great... More

We went there for dinner, since it wad so highly recommended on Trip Adviser. The food is a bit pricy but still reasonable (main corse around 1000 rupees) and it's very good. The service was also very nice. The waiters were quick, friendly and asked us if the food was good - they were really trying hard. I would recommend... More

We had a nice lunch here - we had been to see it for dinner, but as a family it was too packed for us to eat. The food took a while to arrive but was tasty & reasonably priced

Friend who lives nearby took us for drinks and food. Atmosphere was good with music on, Olympic Games and the choice of drinks was quite vast. Not many places seem sell cider outside the uk, pleasantly surprised these guys do as it is my drink of choice. Food was fairly americanised but is definitely the go-to place around here. Been...

A place to enjoy and spend a Friday eve. An array of drinks and food is available. Good music and attracts a decent crowd so even ladies can enjoy and can have their hair down

Had a really good experience at Rodeo pub. There was a great buzz about the place and really friendly people. Our waiter was great, very attentive. I had the fillet steak which was a steal at 1,000 rupees. It was lovely. Probably a bit too much salt in the peppercorn sauce if I was to fault it. Would definitely recommend

We went at 11pm looking for food. Great atmosphere. A bit loud but that's what creates the atmosphere. Nice decent crowd. Food was ok. Drinks cheap and good compared to Colombo. A must visit if you are in Negombo. Nice music. Its on a street with a row of small lively pubs. Highly recommend it.

Good place to chill out and have a few beers. Seating arrangements are a bit odd and you can end up imposing on other groups easily. Didn't see any of the pool tables etc that were mentioned in other reviews. Only had beer and the prices seemed comparable to elsewhere.
