Popped in for breakfast but they don't do breakfast menu! So I could choose anything off the main a la carte menu. I obviously didn't want anything too heavy for my late breakfast (11.15am) so went for a prawn cocktail salad (80's nostalgia in a glass but tasted nice) and a fruit platter (nice and fresh) The staff in there...

We had both lunch and dinner here during our 2 week stay and while the food was ok, we kept returning for drinks because the staff were so friendly. They had a sense of humour and made us smile. Sitting on the beach side of the restaurant was lovely, both during the day and at night. Definitely recommend.

After we went for a walk at the beach this restaurant was a perfect place to have a cold drink. Milkshakes for the kids and a cold cider or beer for the adults. A perfect place to sit and relax both in the sun but there's also tables with shadow where you can still sit and look at the beach.

Popped in for lunch as this place is located straight from the beach so you get great views. Found the staff to be very attentive and the service was very fast compared to other places we visited in Negombo. We opted for the toasties and there very yummy but feel they could have come with a few french fries. Then... More

13 February 2017 Although the food here is edible, service is very poor. There was plenty of staff present, and it appeared that less than 30% of the tables were occupied. I had the chicken with cashews. Although the chicken was decent, there was a total of three and a half cashew pieces. Strange, since cashews are a Sri Lankan... More

To chose a good restaurant is not always so easy. What I like to write regarding the Tastee's Banana restaurant is the high quality of the food. The owner select always for his clients an excellent quality of fresh fish, good vegetables and fruits. I had a pleasure to eat in this restaurant several times, and I have been always... More
