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.
This is a nice little restaurant serving English and classic European dishes. Not cheap but the food is very good.
NB They do not do curries...
Favorite Dish: I absolutely love the Ham & Cheddar salad!
This place gets booked out each Sunday as people flock here for the roasts.
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.
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 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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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 .
7:00 am — 11:00 pm
Favorite Dish: The breakfast!
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.
East Meets West... This place you NEED to eat at atleast once when you in baga in goa.
You are very suprised when you arrive at east meets west, it is just a gate with a path, you walk up the path and assume you will end up on the beach again, it leads into a beautiful courtyard, lit by candles and fairy lights, It is all laid out nicley (It's like comparing this place and a beach shack, to your cities most expensive/classy restrauant, and your local chippie.) the staff are very helpful and friendly. they have live music 4days a week, and place music quitley over speakers when there isnt live music, your all treated as special guests, it is a very enjoyable expierence.
Favorite Dish: Steak with creamy pepercorn and brandy sauce with a jacket potato. the steak melts in your mouth, it's gorgeous!
All the local indian dishes, and curries are gorgeous too.
I'd also recomend trying the nann bread, freshly made, it's gorgeous!
In the mood to spoil yourself, or maybe a loved one?
Find yourself in Goa on an Anniversary?
Well then head down to Sublime in Baga and enjoy a splendid fine-dining experience with a good bottle of wine and some delicious delights.
The chef Chris is a culinary magician from Santa Babara California. More importantly he's a gem of a guy. So don't forget to ask to meet the chef.
Favorite Dish: The Best Beef Steak this side of the atlantic (or the pacific).
The dessert Crepes are simply divine.
The Restaurant is set in wonderfully tended garden surroundings, so romantic for couples but when we were there they also catered for families. The service here is as good as it gets the waiters offer a superior service second to none my napkin fell from my lap to the floor and brfore i could bend to pick it up a waiter handed me a clean one, another picked the one from the floor, Exceptional. The cocktails are made with mineral water ice cubes,Sprite and fresh fruit so the quality is guarenteed, I was very impressed.
The food is Predominately French with a Goan feel. All cooked withe the finest fresh local ingredients. The Three Cheese Souffle starter is immense, the beef very tender, Fantastic fish dishes and Very rich and delicious sauces, the desserts are fantastic. The Chefs brigade at this place are fantastic and cook to a very high standard. Prices are more expensive than an average goan restaurant but still offer excellent value by european standards. This remains my favourite place to have a romantic meal in goa.
Favorite Dish: Melt in the mouth beef and very rich sauces that accompany it - Fantastic
Wonderful Gastronomic Experience Try it you will not be dissapointed
St. Xavier's Cafe is the place at mapusa near market where you will enjoy the great food at cheap price. This cafe is situated in main market. After finishing your shopping you can enjoy a glass of wine along with famous goan fish curry with rice. Taste is just fantastic and price is too low compared to others.
Favorite Dish: Prawns curry rice and Macrel Curry rice.
