Order from the tandoori. Best chicken tikka and butter nan in town. Tried several different curries and could not fault them. We ate here on several occasions as it is possible to have full meal or just a snack or even just a drink. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Open through the year, Rafaels is a deck at the entrance (near Johncys) on Benaulim beach. Although it has a wide variety of food to cater to all tastes, the Goan fare is very good (ask for the tandoor style pomfret). Rafaels also has a well stocked bar (try the Cazulo cashew feny).

The food is cooked to perfection. Best batter fried calamari I had in Goa and I also ate at 5 Star Restaurants. And it's on the beach, really cool. Taxes are extra on the menu prices, unlike most shacks, but then this is way better than most shacks.

The place doesn't look like much but the food was delicious and inexpensive. We ate the goan fish curry rice and a fish fry and both dishes were well made.

Enjoyed some great food at Rafaels. Service good as usual. Recommend the crispy chicken noodles, and ask for them extra crispy. Fantastic! Amusing to watch the tourists passing by!

What a view for sunset! When the sun goes does and if it is a sporting evening the large screen comes down and shows important football and rugby games. The tandoori food at this place is excellent. I went for the Murg Malai tikka which is chicken marinated in yogurt and then baked in a tandoor. Juicy and delicious.

This is one of the basic restaurants in Colva but food is always very good, you just sit at your table and watch the world go by.
