Fantastic Food and Service

I highly enjoyed everything I ate here. I had breakfasts, lunches and dinners and everything was tasty and well presented. Great staff and perfect beach front location.

Good ambience with decent live music everyday with a local goan performance on Thursdays. They serve live catch and cook it well. Price are a shade more than what one pays otherwise at Palolem.

Planned to stay here but prices were a put-off, loads close by were cheaper. Enjoyed a beer here though.

The cocktail list is limited and the cocktails are only ok. Service is incredibly slow (usually took 30 mins for drinks and about an hour for food). They didn't seem to have enough staff on. The live music was good and the food was tasty but not sure if it's worth the wait.

We stopped by for some Tappas and they were a great delight to our taste buds. The restaurant is exceptional along the beach. Different from the rest it is a nice change and extremely clean. It is a little more expensive but the atmosphere and quality of the food was worth it.

I didn't eat but did enjoy the live acoustic musician. The bathrooms are clean and very nicely decorated with seashells covering all the interior walls.

We visited Ciarans for dinner one night whilst in Palolem and it was chockablock with people, I must say the food was OK but the live band were amazing!! I'm not sure what the name of the band was but it was 2 british men I think and they were brilliant, they did their own take on popular songs and... More

We had a thali and Goan fish curry to the sounds of the sea and a cool live band. Service was very nice, and the value for money incredible. Some of the nicest food we had in Goa.
