What a place to have Goan Food

If you are a foody and love to have Sea food made in Goan style, this is the place. Do not Miss it when in Varca area. Every item we tasted was just too good and that too at a reasonable price.

We visited Viva Goa again this month. Though the main restaurant was closed for renovations, we were directed to the temporary location from where they operated in Colva. I must admit that we were surprised that the owner and staff remembered us from our last visit! The service was excellent, with Eros being totally attentive, warm and helpful. Kudos to... More

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
