My friends and I ate here twice during a week because it was soooooo good! Cannot fault this place, it's most definitely five star food at three star prices and you won't get better than this when it comes to western fare in Goa. The British hosts are lovely too. Brilliant atmosphere, excellent food, what more do you need? Thanks... More

First, we ate at Ciarans. Ourem 88 is less costly and stands a head above Ciarans. You'll find less costly food in Palolem, for sure, but Ourem 88 offers exceptional value. The service is friendly and familiar - Brent (or Brett, so sorry), is always eager to chat and offer some local tips. The chef doesn't appear often but she... More

We loved the food here at Ourem 88, it was the best European style Gourmet food we have had in our 2 years in India. It is run by a really friendly English couple, so food hygiene is of the highest quality. We ate entree, main and dessert each. If you are sick of India food or feel like giving... More

During our stay in Palolem, Goa we visited “Ourem 88” for dinner. We had to book one day in advance to get a table, partly because they don’t have a lot of table and because it was the beginning of the season. The food was fantastic; the starters, main course and dessert were just amazing. You simply have to try... More

Gorgeous food, atmosphere and great service. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary there after a recommendation from a friend and it was perfect. Make sure you book in advance through, it gets fully booked!

The food and service was outstanding. We shared a King Prawn starter, both had Red Snapper followed by Profiteroles. This food exceeds most top hotels that I have been too. The Food was so fresh and the Profiteroles made personally. This restaurant is a little bit more expensive than some of the others but that does depend on what you... More

We came to the restaurant and discovered noticed all the tables had 'reserved' signs on them. Luckily Brett, the lovely host and owner of the place, told us one table just canceled. Food was awesome. Huge dishes of perfectly cooked food from top notch ingredients. Great service from Brett. The place has great ambience as well. Prices are on the... More

We've eaten at 88 on numerous occasions both this year and last. The food, service and atmosphere are all top notch. Don't leave Goa without having a special night out in this unique and beautiful place. We're going back tonight!

On recommendation, this was the first restaurant we headed to when we arrived in Paoloem. It was fully booked so we had to put our names down for the next night instead. This was absolutely worth it, and after eating it made perfect sense why we weren't able to just turn up and get a table. The quality of the... More

For something special Ourem 88 is well worth a meal. Brett is a welcoming host, the atmosphere is relaxed and informal and the food is delicious - had the snapper and the chocolate parfait was to die for.
