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

    by Siddha3th Updated Oct 30, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wt my close bud Sohan.. tlk abt yr Angels & Devils

    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.

    BRITTO'S: A delicious landmark of Baga Beach...

    The sun is setting, your tummy grumbles, your mouth is dry, and your feet are tired... head down to Baga Beach to somewhat of a landmark in Goa: Britto's!

    They have Goan and also Continental specialties, and both are good. There's finger-licking yummilicious local seafood as well as delecacies for vegetarians.

    The staff were friendly & knowledgeable, and really helped us to make the best choices with our food. It was definitely a very refreshing & hospitable experience :-)

    The ambience is crowded but cozy - lively but not annoyingly so - relaxing lighting inside,and moon shine outside :-)


    Favorite Dish: Don't miss the seafood platter, which 3 of us girls tucked into; the fresh crab, and of course the cocktails with vodka, rum & the local "Feni" (made from either coconut or cashew)

    Wait! Leave some space for the amazing desserts, otherwise you'll regret it! And don't forget to pick-up some of their home baked bread for next day's breakfast.

    NOTE: Get there early to get a table, because it gets crowded really quickly.
    This is a permanent structure, not a shack.

    GOLDEN EYE Seafood Restaurant: Freshness & Flavour right on the beach: perfect!

    by JessH Updated May 16, 2007

    Nothing can distract me now... (Goa)
    3 more images

    Usually I'm a great fan of venturing away from the relative safety of one's hotel and finding culinary delights outside in the "real world". But on our 4th evening in Goa we were simply too tired & lazy to go out, and decided to try the hotel's very own seafood restaurant.

    As the Golden Eye Hotel is one of the very few that is located right on the beach, you get that wonderous authentic holiday-experience of eating great seafood in the night's ocean breeze...

    The menu is quite extensive with either special a-la-carte options or you can choose your fish by weight and then define the cooking style.

    The interiors/exteriors are nice and modern, clean, waiters are friendly with good knowledge of English and are also open to making good suggestions from their menu.

    Favorite Dish: My friend ordered some grilled Tikka Paneer as a starter, followed by Naan bread and a delightful Prawn curry in red sauce.

    I asked the waiter about an authentic, traditional, local curry for Goa and with a big grin on his face he proudly proclaimed "Fish Caldeen". Caldeen curry sauce is made with mostly coconut & green chillies and is a Goan speciality.
    I chose to have mussels with the caldeen sauce and it was absolutely devine! I highly recommend you try it!
    We also ordered a Lobster Thermidor (charged by weight) with vegetables and it cost a laughable 790 Rupees! (approx. 17 US $)

    I would definitely eat here again and I suggest you do... just don't tell everyone about this place, ok? ;-)

    (P.S.: Please share some of your seafood with the lovely hotel felines.
    Also, please don't order baby shark. By catching juvenile fish the species has the hard task of trying to not become extinct! Thank you.)

    Dropadi Restaurant: Seafood at Palolem!

    by tashka Updated Mar 29, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dropadi Restaurant, Palolem

    The place is great for a lunch or dinner, you can see the beach and watch the sunset from it. Food is very good and prices are reasonable.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood salad. It's called "seafood and vegetable salad" there, but it's mostly seafood and the portion is very large (was a whole meal for me :))
    The price was 150 rupees ($3.5).

    Garlic cheese naans (local type of bread) are also highly recommended!

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Approximately 20 kms from panji towards margaon just after crossing zuari bridge within 4 kms on right hand side you will find the perfect home made restaurant and bar called Bonny's Restuarant. Here Husband do all the work of outside and wife do all the cooking job. The perfect home made taste , homely atmosphere , cleanliness, fresh fish are the most attractions of this restaurant.
    Cost of wine per glass is 10 Rs and any fish fry will cost you around 70 rs. The best thing is masala fried prawns , they are just delicious.

    Favorite Dish: Prwans masala fried

  • Roma: Fantastic Experience!!

    by mimi2006 Updated Nov 23, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a MUST GO place in Goa!!We were approached while soaking in some rays on the beach in Calangute by the chef who gave us a flyer for his restaurant. We were impressed at his enthusiasm for his own food so we found our way to Roma to sample the delights that he promised would be on the menu. It was like love at first bite!! The chef Kharis Francesco has worked in top restaurants all over Italy and Paris and his inspiration and expertise comes through in his cooking.......the menu is HUGE and VARIED offering a sublime fusion of traditional Italian recipes and fresh fish and seafood....the result is mouthwateringly astoundingly good!! The salads are great and washed in purified bottled water..the pizzas are freshly made in the outdoor Goan oven and the service is impeccable... and you have to try the home made icecreams and sorbets. Roma was so good we went back three times!! I am so dissapointed i didnt take a photo here!! One more thing to mention; its so very very cheap!!

    Favorite Dish: Rocket and parmasan salad
    Gnocci with tomato sauce
    fettuccine with seafood
    tooo many to mention!!

    Domnick's: Seafood at Colva

    Myself in Domnick's restaurant

    Great seafood! When you want to order fish, they bring the day's catch to your table, so you can choose the very fish you like, and then they ask you how you want it cooked. Prices are reasonable, service is very good, food is great!

    Favorite Dish: Red snapper tandoori with lemon sauce.
    Prawns were also great there!

    Souza Lobo: Most popular eating house in Calangute

    by Justin_goa Written Nov 2, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The most popular beach in Goa is Calangute beach, and its most popular eating house – Souza Lobo. Established in 1932, this restaurant dwarfed by other eating houses, is located linearly where the beach ends with three rows of tables set at two levels with each table commanding a breath-taking view of the beach.

    The only wall along the far side is decorated with paintings of fisherwomen in mis-matching floral blouses and skirts; the ceiling with bamboo mats and all lights pointing upwards giving the whole restaurant a serene atmosphere. There is live music with a different band playing every night.

    Liquor and fish take prime space on the menu and pork is also available. Most of the dishes are made to suit western tastes, but spicy preparations are available on request. Lobster is expensive at Rs.1500, but otherwise most of the dishes are in the range of Rs.180 to Rs.200.

    For starters, mixed sea food grill at Rs.500 is exquisite, consisting of grilled crabs, king prawns, squid, oysters and fillet of chonak (red snapper). Aromatic pork sorpotel is popular among the western visitors. Vinegar, toddy and rum are used liberally in most of the preparations (though not all together in the same dish).

    Favorite Dish: The main dishes of fish are cafreal, vindaloo or plain fish masala and are best eaten with the local pao (bread). These are spicy and aromatic preparations and one generous portion is sufficient for two.

    Prawns or Fish fry is available either as rava-fried or masala-fried. Both are equally good with the masala consisting of ground spices in vinegar. Most of the dishes are dressed with salads, so there is no need to order green salads.

    The regular Goan desserts like Bebinca and Dodol are available; try the Crepe Sousa Lobo – its ice cream rolled with a sprinkling of grated coconut dust topped with chocolate. Bebinca is a egg and coconut milk preparation, while Dodol is a preparation made of coconut jaggery.

    SEAFOOD: Try it at home?

    by BluBluBlu Written Aug 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you've got a taste for Goan cuisine...why not try it yourself when you get home...

    Goan Prawn Curry

    Preparation time: 15 minutes
    Cooking time: 20 minutes

    Serves 4

    Ingredients
    50ml vegetable oil
    1 large onion, thinly sliced
    2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
    2 green chillies, finely chopped
    Pinch of ground turmeric
    1 tsp ground coriander
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp chilli powder
    60ml coconut cream
    2 tbsp fresh, sieved tamarind
    160ml coconut milk
    600g large, raw tiger prawn tails
    Salt

    Instructions
    Heat the oil in a thick-bottomed pan over a medium heat. Add the sliced onion, and fry for 10 minutes until soft. Add the ginger and green chilli and fry for 1 minute. Add the turmeric, coriander, cumin and chilli powder. Mix well. Add the coconut cream and cook until the oil separates out from the mix.

    Add the tamarind and coconut milk and bring the sauce to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, shell the prawns (leaving their tails on, if you like) and remove the dark digestive cords. Wash the prawns in cold water and drain them thoroughly.

    Drop the prawns into the sauce, add salt to taste and gently simmer until the prawns are cooked - about 5 minutes. The sauce should be of pouring consistency. Garnish, if you like, with shredded spring onion, and serve with rice.

    Enjoy!

    Souza Lobo: Best (Seafood!) Dinner on the Beach

    by Donna_in_India Written Oct 1, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boats in Goa

    The Goa landmark, Souza Lobo is located on the beach in Calangute. They serve Goan, Tandoori, Chinese, and Continental dishes. My favorite dishes are the prawn and crab dishes! Yummm!

    Souza Lobo can seat hundreds of people at a time at the bar, at inside tables or at tables on the beach but this is a very popular place so be sure to arrive early especially on the nights that there is live music! The live music nights are the best nights to go. Go, have a cocktail or a mocktail, listen to some music, dance, and eat!!

    Some of the seafood dishes are priced as "market price". If you order any of these dishes, be sure to ask the price first. You can eat inexpensively if you don't have any alcohol or market price seafood, but even if you do, it's still not expensive.

    Open year-round, Souza Lobo is another MUST visit in Goa!
