    A cute riverside cafe-The Mandovi Riviera, I think,along the banks of the river.Pleasant location for a snack and tea.
    Don't worry,there is only one cafe,so you wont get confused!

    Nice atmosphere,with a lovely view of the river.

    Good Luck British Pie Shop: British Food at its best

    by harjeev Written Apr 10, 2008

    I saw the owner of this joint serving his own pies in the Ingo's Saturday Night Bazzar in Apora. Most of the pies looked very tempting, but I couldnt have any as had a late lunch and was full to the brim. So i had to come to this place. The guy is a british and looks like to be a big fan of apachie indian.

    Ordered a prawn sizzler 3/5
    Was ok very hot but a little to sweet for my liking.
    A kidney and liver pie 4.5/5
    One word. This was amazing. Never had something like this. Very delicious.

    They took a long time preparing the stuff but the pie was worth the wait.
    Total bill 350. 130 for the pie, 60 for the drinks, 170 for the prawn sizzler.

    They serve everything from cornish pastys to 7-8 different types of British pies. I began talking to the waiters of the place. Learnt from them that the owner (a british) has been in india for the past 30 years. Now that a long long time. Further, I learnt that on the new year eve 31/12/2007 he organised Apachie Indians preformance right on the beach. That would be something.

    Havana-Palolem beach: It may not be in Cuba, but it's worth a visit

    by traceyspacey Written Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Havana is one of the many beach shacks in Palolem, but is one of my favourites.

    It is a great place to come with friends. The food is good, I tend to eat mainly Indian dishes here. If there is a large group of you, they automatically work out the bill per person/couple. The staff are really friendly here. If you have music that you want to play, feel free to do so as they don't mind here.

    Had quite a few good nights there.

    Favorite Dish: The food is tasty and is cooked well. If you want it spicy, let them know.

    Cuba-Palolem beach: Delicious toasted sandwiches

    by traceyspacey Written Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cuba is a friendly place. It is fairly popular when we first went, but has quietened down since the Cuba beach bar opened. Popular when the football is on.

    The toasted sandwiches are excellent. Panini with cheese, tomato and onion. Good stuff.

    Favorite Dish: Toasted cheese sandwich

    Cheeky Chapati-Palolem beach: More than just Chapati's

    by traceyspacey Written Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are in Cheeky Chapati's, you feel that you are enclosed in a little peaceful haven. They have built wooden walls around with plants strewn around the place.

    The food is fantastic and I have not had a meal there, that I did not like. Great salads and wraps that are a little different from the rest. Prices are a little higher than average, but it is worth it.

    Favorite Dish: No favourite.

    Sublime: Be warned...

    by BluBluBlu Written Jan 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the past I, along with many guide books, have recommended a restaurant called 'Sublime' next to Baga Bridge...but no more! Went there Wednesday to find its under new ownership, and the food was appalling, probably the worst I've ever had in Goa! There was five of us and not one liked the food.

    Be warned...

    Favorite Dish: I ordered roast chicken with bubble and squeek , and got overcooked tough chicken, served with a selection of vegetables and two scoops of mash (out of a packet) - yuk!

  • Oriental, The Thai-Continental Restaurant: Seafood and Steaks!

    by mickchecker Written Nov 1, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oriental, the Thai restaurant moved once more from Candolim now to Hotel Mira at Calangute. The ambience changed and the exotic garden is not any more. Still the new setting is nice around the pool with open fire in the middle of the pool and other lovely arrangements. The Thai/European owners told me that they want to focus more on the English/ Scandinavian customers and so they introduced more European dishes. We can recommend the deep fried prawns, or the shrimp toast with the Thai sauce for the starter. The steak was out of this world and far the best I had in Goa.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the Hungarian Goulash and the Steaks. The meat is tender as butter. The Thai Seafood, specially the prawns and Lobster are famous as well.

    Goa Marriot - Waterfront Terrace & Bar: Great vegetarian food in Goa is found here!!

    by nsurati Written Aug 6, 2007

    Settled on the banks of Mandovi, with a spectacular view, the waterfront terrace and bar at Goa Marriot is a treat for any meal - Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner.

    They serve up fresh milkshakes of seasonal fruits as well as the regular vanilla, chocolate and coffee milkshakes for breakfast. The buffet spread – although similar to most five stars is excellent when it comes to the flavour.

    They have excellent buffets for lunch and dinner as well. The dinner buffet has one of my favourite dishes everyday - Hummus and Pita bread. The hummus is perfect and is ideal for a basic, light meal. A made-to-order pasta counter will serve up delicacies as you like it. There is a special everyday which is written on the board at the entrance. I ate there for three consecutive days and had nothing to complain about.

    Favorite Dish: For lunch, the chefs here cook up a different recipe for mushroom starters everyday for lunch. I have never seen so many different flavours for a mushroom starter ever. I simply freaked out on that one. The spread isn’t essentially extensive, but the food, the view and Goa make it a meal to remember.

    My favourite for dinner was the hummus and pita bread and the made - to - order pasta

    Inferno: Grilled Fish

    by clouds111 Written Jun 25, 2007

    Goan restuarants are rife with fresh fish - their main local fish being the King Fish. And Inferno's know how to cook it! The grilled fish here is lovely, cooked in an open kitchen. This open air restaurant can get quite busy though and service can be slow at times but the food is always worth the wait.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great place stuck in a corner in south goa, near park hyatt...secluded down a road but everyone beats a path to the joint by 9 in the night. great place, great spread, chk out the pictures hung on the wall and delectable pastry counter at the entrance.
    We had so much food and desserts yet the bill was just around 35$USD for 4 people...what else do you need in life

    Favorite Dish: Loved the fish and chicken with the beer. Fish was fresh, chicken was tasty and the pastries were also v good. Go there with an empty stomach and go overboard by ordering all

    Havanas: The best restaurant on the beach

    by kentishgirl Updated Apr 2, 2007


    We visited many of the restaurants along the beach and in Palolem village.
    This restaurant stands out as the best by far - and we came back here many many times for various reasons.

    The staff here were so friendly and helpful, after we had been here a few times they only saw us walking towards them and they would bring two beers out!

    We used to sit by candlelight on the sand and have a beer or two before dinner.


    Favorite Dish:
    Surf n Turf was huge and delicious! Various Indian curries were fabulous, as were Onion Pakodas, and the Banoffee pie!

    this place serves massive portions of authentic british food. the owner is british. the food is amazing and they do a roast dinner on sundays. they also have a bar area and a little sort of lounge where you can watch dvd's. the service is fast but the staff look suicidal.

    Favorite Dish: roast beef on sundays, chicken kiev, cottage pie - because they taste like they do at home.

    Caravela: Good food and good service.

    by tere1 Updated Mar 16, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Café Caravela, a charming all-day dining restaurant with an open deck overlooking the sea, serves very good western and indian dishes, as well as an excellent breakfast.

    If you are already tired of indian food you can find here most western dishes from pastas to steaks. If you still want to stay with indian food they serve an excellent one. Usally at lunch time and sometimes at dinner they also have an extensive indian buffet .

    Hours:
    7:00 am — 11:00 pm

    Favorite Dish: The breakfast!

    Banyan Tree: Excellent thai food in a romantic atmosphere!

    by tere1 Updated Mar 15, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Banyan Tree is a thai restaurant that belongs to the Taj Holiday Village Resort and serves excellent food in a romantic atmosphere. They sometimes have a thai buffet .
    The green curry and pla rad prik (crispy fried fish) are signature standouts. But all food here is delicious.

    The restaurant has an excellent setting amidst huge banyan trees, surrounded by a shimering fishpond.

    Service is fabulous and this is a very well known restaurant in Goa so I advise you to book a table early because it usually gets full. It's a bit expensive for Goa's standards but nonetheless for westerns it doesn't come expensive and you will be glad to dine here.

    Favorite Dish: Green curry and for dessert the mango with sweet rice.
