We were introduced to this restaurant by a local and we visited twice during our 2 week stay in Colva. The decoration and seating are very basic but we have learned not to expect "luxury". The atmosphere is good and on the Saturday night we had a singer entertain us who was quite good. The food is as good as... More

We're back in Goa again and this is still one of our favourites. Never been disappointed with quality of food or service. In particular the Chicken Haryali is my favourite of all the excellent Indian meals I've had in my extended stay in Goa. I can also recommend the very reasonably priced cocktails, particularly the Mojitos which are outstanding, almost... More

My husband and I recently visited Viva Goa for lunch out. Wow, what can we say.....the food is delicious and the service was quick. The ambiance was lovely and serene. We had a table facing the fields that added to the peaceful atmosphere. The personalized touch from Francis Gomes, the owner was great. Hats off to him and his team,... More

Small little place just around the bend to Sernabatim beach is Viva Goa, nothing flashy about the interiors , but serves good goan dishes. Try the Chicken Stew

Visited this restaurant just the once during our month long stay there and found the atmosphere and condition of the restaurant to be inferior and the service poor. The food was mediocre and during the evening the electric fan was constantly redirected at others without any thought whatsoever as to our comfort! All in all not an experience to be... More

Visited this place twice during our stay, and on both occasions they made a mistake with the order!! The staff were unapologetic and made out it was our fault! The food was mediocre and during the evening we were constantly hounded by the local cats and dogs !!!! Disappointing!!!

Have been to the Restraunt twice recently and found it to be OK. Unfortunately on our second visit they managed to Mia understand the food order so I didn't end up with what I really wanted. The atmosphere is ok but not for a special occasion. Passable but not the best.

A smallish restaurant just far enough from the centre of Colva to escape the hubbub. Food is excellent. Good range of dishes - Goan, Indian and western. Always a good selection of fresh local fish. Have not been able to fault the food over several visits. Francis, the "hands-on" owner for 14 years, encourages a friendly atmosphere and has excellent... More
