Gaffino's is a very old hotel, has been there since more than 10 years. Rice Bowl is now the restaurant. Their starters are really good. Enough for 2 people. Avoid the mushroom starters. It's not a great place, but very reasonable. Clean surroundings.

Gaffino's at Cavelossim stretch (opposite Tito's) is a good no frills hotel. The rooms are decent, A/C, bathrooms are clean. There are no TV's in the rooms. This works fine for the people who are looking for a hotel without too much luxury. There are plenty of good eating joints closeby so food is no issue. It is about a... More

Was staying at Haathi mahal next doors and had three meals. The restaurant is Rice Bowl and served good Indo-Chinese. Food was quite tasty and wholesome. Ambiance is simple, however the complex is clean and airy (not air-conditioned). Staff is warm and prices reasonable. Would recommend the place.

This hotel is situated in a prime location with easy access to the beach and most good restaurants. The staff are friendly, but on arriving at 1am we were tired and thirsty, I asked for bottled water...NONE available. There was no chance of any refreshments or even a cup of tea. The hotel is primarily aimed at a Russian clientele... More

Four of us stayed in Cavelossim and visited a different restaurant each evening over the three weeks we were there. We thought we would try Gaffinos as had walked past it several times and it looked Ok. What a mistake!!! The menu we were given was very extensive however everything we chose they did not have. Mr friends ordered fish... More

This is our fourth visit to Goa, second to Cavelossim. Last year (Feb 2011) we used to pass Gaffinos and could see how busy the restaurant and bar was which prompted us to book it this year. It was not until after we had booked that I found a review saying that money had gone missing from the safety deposit... More

We went to visit our friends who were staying at Gaffinos, infact, the previous review by Nancy, is about the two couples who we visited! This place is old, tired, and needs to jump quickly into the current day! As one of the first places to stay in Cavelossim it should be proud of it's longevity! But unless they sort... More
