Prawns biryani was pretty good. But everything else tasted bad and the fish we ordered was stale and smelled horrible.

I liked the fish preparations, I didn't see any other hotel here like this one. It is the best. It was a pity that I discovered the place on the last day of the 4 days I stayed here.

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).
