Description: Fresh caught seafood straight from the Indian Ocean is on displayed at your very eyes to be cooked just the way you want it, grilled, deviled, poached, fried or any other style that you prefer that would leave you with great satisfaction. Enjoy the romance of live Seafood, a tables set right on the beach facing the ocean, candle lighting, warm ocean breeze and the surf breaking softly just a few feet away with the many catamarans at sea. Watch the flickering illumination of hurricane lamps throw shadows of history on the soft sand under your bare foot. Designed to make your heart softly beat. Shades you from the sun and shelters you from the rain. Perched on the pristine sands of the paradise beach overlooking the Indian Ocean .It’s a quaint yet stylish venue with the signifying natural aesthetic beauty. A setting that is nothing short from your expected dream. The cool night breeze will caress you while waiters at island style attire cosset you.

It wasn't our first visit to Tastee's Banana (we've eaten there before), but now we've tried their cocktails and I have to say that they are making the best cocktails in Negombo!!! Every cocktail is perfectly executed and presented. The prices are good.
The bartender (Thushara) really knows his job and that's why we've returned second and third time to try some of his cocktails. Excellent!!!

We had a good lunch here. It's a cute place with a lovely view and I loved the grilled prawns. There were several large groups of locals out for a weekend lunch and lots of tourists, overall somewhere I would go back to.

We stopped here during the day whilst in Sri Lanka, and I can't say I was disappointed.

The food was excellent - I thoroughly enjoyed a creamy Sri Lankan curry that had plenty of kick. Reasonably priced with good portion sizes too. Whilst we ate our lunch we had a great view of the beach and Indian Ocean.

Although the service was really slow (took ages for our order to be taken, despite it being quiet) they were really accommodating towards our young son (always a big thing for me) who tends to be quite messy.

Unfortunately the restroom facilities come across as being a little dilapidated, and there does seem to be a difference between here, and the front of the restaurant. Saying that they do have a great selection of drinks in the bar section at the entrance.

Great staff, good friendly service and good prices. We only stayed for sundowners, but noticed the place filled up (especially in the outside beach area) with diners - all seemed to enjoy and from what we saw the food was excellent.
