    MONALISA'S ANGELHEART RESTAURANT: THE BEST PRAWN CURRY IN THE WORLD!

    by Siddha3th Updated Oct 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Food - a spicy, heady concoction of Goan cuisine, complemented by some delicious Mediterranean fare. Of course, it's mandatory to wash down whatever you're having with a large Heineken. Cheers!

    Ambience - once the sun sets, the whole place is bathed in a gorgeous red glow, thanks to the soft, subtle lanterns. Quite irresistible, really :)

    Surroundings - I challenge you to find a better setting for a restaurant, anywhere in the world! You've got the blue ocean ahead of you, golden sands beneath your feet, and the whole world in the blink of an eye.

    Favorite Dish: Prawn Curry a la Goa - make sure you ask the chef to whip it up extra spicy for you. Marinated in liquor of some kind (wine or rum, I'm guessing), the prawns are delightful with either rice or olive bread. Bon Appetit.

    All Spice: All Spice...a superb place!

    by BluBluBlu Updated Jan 23, 2014

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is by far the best restaurant in the Arpora area. Great atmosphere...good mix of cuisines, although the Indian dishes are the best...and great music.

    Be warned...it tends to get packed out most nights, as a lot of customers are frequent visitors ever since it opened in 2002...if you get there before 8pm you should get a table.

    IMPORTANT!!! At the end of the 2011/12 season the partners of this restaurant (Vinnie & Anthony) split up. That said its not as busy as it once was...but still brilliant curries!

    Favorite Dish: Where do you start...great steaks (Beef, Chicken, Pork, & Lamb) all served with Indian style mash and cabbage; the Chicken Chettinad is lovely, fresh fish & lobster...I just love all the curries!...and they probably have the best range of kebabs in Goa! If you are going to have a starter I highly recommend the Prawns 65, and the Spicy Chily Beef!

    OTHER LOCAL: Almas home cooking

    by goaaddict Written Sep 25, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Alma`s is a small place with just 8 tables and a very warm welcome. It is a family run buisness and Alma`s cooking is superb. When you go there and get to know them you are made to feel like one of the family and again it is another place where they will do anything they can to make your stay a pleasant one.

    Star Restaurant: Great Fresh food

    by joolssss Updated Nov 3, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located on Baga beach itself. the staff are as helpful and friendly as you could wish for. The food is divine. We ate there most days and were never disappointed. It was very very cheap and of high standard. It also hosted the cleanest toilet on the beach!
    The guys in there also put us onto a very good taxi driver who we kept for the 2 weeks we were there.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster Thermodore, This was from heaven , it was absolutely delicious and have never had one as good since! Also the milkshakes are freshly made, with fresh fruit or chunks of chocolate, very very yummy!

    by alycat Written Dec 25, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small hole near the now defunct petrol bunk of calangute turns into a pleasing open air restaurant at nite. Good service with reasonably priced food to suit all nationalities and "Brits" aswell.

    Favorite Dish: I had dinner twice here and though the egg fried rice was spicy, it was still quite tasty. I also liked the veg american chopsuey, lotsa veggs for a meat eater like me.

    Hotel Aflatoon: HALAL FOOD

    by alycat Updated Dec 25, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beef, mutton, chicken, u name it they have it. aND all of it halal. Located in mapusa, this restaurant drove us all the way from calangute not just b cos it had gr8 taste, but mainly b cos it served halal food.

    Halal food is hard to find in Goa, something I take for granted in my hometown Hyderabad. So when we got tired of eating vegs, we headed straight to mapusa for some meaty stuff.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken rolls, rotis, chicken masala, chicken biryani is also okay (no one can beat we hyderabadi's at that). Tandoori chicken is the best of it all.

    Sunset Shack: Great position, great food, geat service

    by grets Written Jul 4, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right on the beach with sun beds and tables with umbrellas on the sand. The staff are not the usual pushy sales people you get further north and will sit and chat to you if they have the time.

    I ordered a Bacardi Breezer and couldn't understand why it took so long to arrive - they didn't have any and had to go to the local shop to replace their supplies.

    Favorite Dish: Pork Vindaloo.

    I enquired about a dessert dish on the menu which I had never heard of before, and the next day I was given one 'compliments of the house'.

    Anand, our favourite waiter

    OTHER LOCAL: Casa Potrugese

    by goaaddict Written Sep 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Casa Portugese is at the bottom end of Baga road (all the taxis and tuck tuck drivers know it) it is an authentic Goan/Portugese restaurant with good wine and wonderfull food. It doesn`t open during the day so if you want to book a table (you have to if you want a Chateaux Briand)you will have to call in the evening. All the waiters are in the old style Portugese costume and you can either sit inside or in the gardens. A nice experience but a touch more expensive than the others.

  • Redonda: Have lobster and champagne!

    by majallen Written Nov 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can sit downstairs but upstairs is better as it gives you a view of the goings on below and is open air.
    Ask for the waiter Prakash who will give you the best advice on what to eat and gets it spot on every time, he even went to 3 shops to try and find us a bottle of chilled champage as they had run out.
    Our last night was the most expensive meal we had. We started with a glass of wine each, then a bottle of champagne. A starter each, two main courses (one lobster), bread and rice, 2 desserts, 2 irish coffees and the whole bill only came to around $57. The average price I have quoted below is including champagne if you don;t have this it will be in the lower bracket.

    Favorite Dish: My partner would recommend the crab starter and grilled lobster for main course. He tried the same in other places but nothing lived up to Redonda.
    My choice being vegetarian would be the paneer tikka (a grilled kebab in a divine sauce) to start and vegetable makanwhala for main course.
    Have the Indian champage, it is so cheap and just as good as the real thing in my opinion although I am not a connoisseur.
    The Irish coffe is the best ever and I don't even like coffee!

    MOON CREST: Goan Prawn Curry - TO DIE FOR!!

    by MicB Updated Jan 11, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated alongside the Baga River, Moon Crest restaurant has to rank amongst the best restaurants in North Goa.

    David Gonsalves, the owner, greets everyone and makes all his customers feel special.

    You dine under Palm Trees and are quite often entertained - Thursday night is Jazz night.

    We spent many a night during our holiday wining and dining here and never once had cause for complaint.

    Favorite Dish: Lobster - thermidor or grilled, most definately worth ordering.

    Tiger Prawns - again thermidor or plainly grilled.

    But to absolutely kill for is the Goan Prawn Curry - the taste of the fresh coconut and the succulent prawns are heavenly!
