I've been here with my husband at the end of our Sri Lankan journey. Nice restaurant at the beach road (but no direct access to the beach). Particularly great at night, cocktails and food both really good!

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.
