Walking along the beach, I saw some empty tables at a busy bar. Took a seat and was served instantly. Had a beer and some seafood.

I didn't eat here on this occasion, but had a sundowner on most days in the fabulous beach area at the rear of the bar area. The staff are very friendly and a good bunch of people, but service is only average.

Other members of our group tested of this restaurant and they said that this is not bad. Unfortunately, like every other restaurant in this area this is also overpriced, especially their seafood combos. On the other hand the food was just great.

I went to Tastee's Banana for lunch. Beautiful beach bar with cool music. Very laid back Bob Marley vibes :) The food was delicious and the staff are very friendly. Worth a visit when in Negombo.
