  • Seagull: Great Place!!!

    by Kenjer Written Jan 9, 2010

    We stayed at the Seagull which was recommended by a friend. The stay was great and restaurant too was very well managed. We ate out a few times at several different place and concluded that the Seagull was the best.

    They had good entertainment a few times of the week and also had a Giant screen on for most of the games shown..

    There are many eating places around but either the service or the food or the atmosphere or the hygiene or the washrooms would be a let down...

    So having experimented with almost all the restaurants around within 500 metre radius we then ate at the Seagull for the rest of our stay.

    The manager Shiviji was always obliging and willing to make every effort to please guests..

    Its definetely a MUST VISIT place..

    Favorite Dish: Seafood was our favourite cause we love seafood but all the rest of the meals too were great and the place was packed most nights..

    Chocolatti: Great for Lunch, Desserts, & Cappuccino

    by Donna_in_India Written Oct 1, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Chocolatti is an unusual place for Goa, where there is definitely not enough places serving good desserts! What started a few years ago as a place that sold very good cakes and chocolates, etc. has grown into a special place. The tables outside are set in a very relaxing garden and it is the perfect place to stop for afternoon tea (or cappuccino) and dessert. It is also a nice place for lunch but be sure to leave room for dessert or make 2 visits! (Also open for breakfast.)

    Salads, sandwiches, etc. are on the menu but I think the highlight is the desserts. Try the chocolate cake, brownies, truffles, etc.!

    Open 9:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

    Closed Sundays.

    Rock Cafe Steak House: In the centre of Calangute

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very popular place that is located in the heart of the action in central Calangute. As the name suggests, there is heavy emphasis on steaks with all types being available plus things like surf & turf, which, for me, was great to see after travelling around India for 11 weeks up until then with hardly a whiff of beef as cows are sacred in India. You can sit outside and watch people go by but also the traffic along the busy road. Inside, you can sit and watch football on TV.

    Casandre: Great breakfasts!

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I came here every morning to have breakfast that cost Rs100 compared with Rs200 in other places nearby. It consisted of beef bacon, 2 small cocktail sausages, large fresh toasted bread roll, baked beans, 2 eggs and mushroom, so you can call it a proper English breakfast! I also had a dinner here of Chinese chilly pork and rice which was good to have as I hadn't eaten pork since I started my big Indian trip in Delhi about 11 weeks before. Also tucked into an ice cream sundae and, of course, a beer. Good place with a nice veranda out front to sit and watch people go by.

    Calangute - Friend's Corner: Right on the beach

    by Willettsworld Written Sep 19, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of beach shacks selling food and drink along the beach in Calangute. The deal, here, is that you have to buy a drink and/or food from a shack whenever you opt to take up residence on one of their sun beds. One that I frequented a lot during my time here was called Friend's Corner where the staff are nice and chatty, so you get to know them a little more each time you visit. The shacks are made out of bamboo and palm leaves with sand floor. Food is actually very good with some very good chips, sandwiches and other snack food.

    Anywhere: Feny/ Feni/ Fenny

    by Rupanworld Written May 27, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Feni is the locally brewed alchohol of Goa. It is mainly prepared from the fermented sap of the coconut flower-stalk and also from the fruit of the cashew tree. So there are Coconut fenny and cashew fenny. Other forms of liquor are widely available across the state, but the Goans are very fond of their own feni as well. I liked it!

    Favourite restaurants in Baga: Indian or Italian tonight?

    by toonsarah Updated Jan 29, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As it’s so long since we were there I can’t recall the names of all the restaurants we went to, and some may well have closed or changed management since then. But a couple stand out in my memory as being the best of those we tried, and would be worth others searching out.

    Fiesta is a popular and fairly upmarket choice. The cuisine is Italian, so it makes a change from the otherwise ubiquitous Indian choices – I love curry and tandoori dishes but was pleased to have a break on a couple of evenings. The service was very good and the setting is lovely, with tables in a pretty garden festooned with lanterns. We ate here on my birthday and were treated to an extra light-show – a storm was brewing and the lightening was pretty spectacular, although luckily the rain held off until we were almost back at the hotel.

    Tito’s is a Baga institution and has even given its name to a road: Tito’s Road, which leads down to the beach from the main Baga Road. It is in fact a row of establishments, with a coffee shop furthest from the sea, followed by a bar and nightclub and a restaurant. We ate in the latter a couple of times. The food wasn’t the best we had in Baga but it was pretty good, and we liked the tables scattered in the large open courtyard setting. They do a great Bloody Mary too, if my memory serves me right!

    But our favourite restaurant was one that was very recently opened and was away from the beach on the Baga Road: “Over the Flames” . The cooking here was excellent, especially the fresh fish and seafood cooked in the tandoori oven. The chef would bring a platter of the day’s catch to our table for us to select the exact fish we would like and it would then be cooked to order while we enjoyed our starter. On our next-to-last evening we ate here and told the waiter that we were tossing up whether to come back again on the next evening for our final dinner in Baga, or to go back to our other (and less visited) favourite, the Fiesta. When we duly appeared the next evening he was grinning from ear to ear. It turned out that he had a bet with his boss that we would come and was thrilled because our arrival meant that he had won some money! We were given free cocktails as “regulars”, and I was given a little, cheap but pretty, bangle. We were so pleased we’d chosen to spend our last evening in this friendly place.

    Magic Italy: Yummy Pizza

    by traceyspacey Updated Jul 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Magic Italy is on the beach road, set in a leafy garden area with fairy lights. This place does good pizza's. It is more expensive than some of the other places, but the quality of the food makes up for it. They use imported ingredients. The staff are friendly and are happy to make a wine recommendation. We went here about 3 or 4 times over a 6 week period. It was a good treat for us! Pizza's from 200-350 rupees

    The pizza's are big, so we would share one and have a starter to share as. You can also get takeaway from here, which makes it cheaper. A separate takeaway place had opened up on the main road near the Expresso place.

    Not to be confused with Little Italy

    Favorite Dish: I can't remember the name of it-sorry. We were never disappointed.

    Casa Fiesta is set in a leafy large garden next to the main road. The staff are friendly and the food is good. i have heard that they do struggle a bit when they get busy. We only ever came here for lunch and therefore never had a problem.

    Squat toilets, no western toilets.

    Smugglers Inn Palolem: Sunday Roast anyone? Palolem

    by traceyspacey Written Jul 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Smugglers Inn is all out British food. I can highly recommend their Sunday Roast Dinners. We had been traveling for a while so we did come here a few times for a taste of home. The staff are really friendly. Sunday Roasts start from 6pm. Get here early or book in advance as they do run out.

    Favorite Dish: Sunday Roast

    Mamoos: It is okay, not great Palolem

    by traceyspacey Written Jul 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mamoos serves mainly Indian and Thai food. The first time we came with a friend who had been here a few times and loved. The first time the food was good and service okay. The 2nd and 3rd time, our order was wrong. The food was okay, not the best chicken I have ever had. The service was very very slow. It took us 1 hour and a half on our last visit and we had only ordered 2 dishes. I would not recommend this place.

    Expresso: Great Expresso-Palolem

    by traceyspacey Written Jul 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our travels around India and South East Asia we tried to find places that did good coffee. We do like our coffee strong.

    This place had just opened up on our second visit to Palolem. It is some of the best coffee that we have had. The staff really take pride in making the coffee. They were always full of smiles. If you fancy Ice cream, an Ice cream parlor had just opened up next door and you can sit down and enjoy the two together.

    Favorite Dish: Expresso. Good strong coffee
