This restaurant is an old favourite with city residents, with a nice laid-back atmosphere. The billiards room of the Portuguese era is today the air-conditioned section.
Besides the best of Continental, Indian, Chinese and Tandoori cuisines, here we can find authentic home-cooked vindalhos, balchãos, xacutis, sorpotel, bebinca, and all the other wondrous dishes that make Goan cuisine unique and one of the most popular in India.
Favorite Dish: Porco vindalho and bebinca for dessert!
An ordinary ticket from Madgaon station to Hospet, which is the closest station to Hampi, will cost you a mere 84 INR (as of April 2009). However I will warn you that ordinary carriages (non-sleeper) can get VERY crowded, so much so that we were crammed into the corridor next to the toilet, and at one point people, including my partner, were hanging out of the door! And still people were pouring in at each station, with tons of luggage! It was incredibly impressive how they managed to find space - one enterprising young man actually climbed up over the doorway and wedged himself up there like a spider!
If you can see out, the views on this route are amazing!
