Excellent place

This restaurant has the best tuna salad in palolem beach. This is from trying few other tuna salads at other places. The two waiters working there provide a good service overall and remember customer's preferences.This is one of the best venues in palolem to try.

I had been very enthusiastically recommended this restaurant, by two separate individuals, so myself and my travel companion were excited about trying it out.

nothing that i can think of that i disliked. great location and great food. loved the place. the cottages are temporary structures but really very comfortable. the bathrooms can put some of the hotels to shame. guys just be careful about mosquitos. they do have mosquito nets but some mosquito repellant cream/coil/mats will be helpful.

Its right on the beach , good staff.. Apparently the place is seasonal. Decent food, had prawns in butter garlic and sanghria.. Sanghria was below par but the pra ns were decent.. If you visit this Most Beautiful Beach of Goa, you should try this place

Every time we go to Ciarans, we are delighted both with the food and the service. We find that we are welcomed back like family and the food is always fresh and incredibly tasty. I would highly recommend going for the sea-food.

We were here every day. Breakfast was I. Our room rate but we had lunch & dinner there as well. Food always fresh. Seafood was cooked very well. Service is great. The green Papaya salad was so refreshing I had quite a few times!

The service at Ciarans is second to none. The staff are friendly, attentive ( not over the top) and professional while also knowledgeable about the menu and will answer any questions truthfully ( spicy/non spicy) The menu has something for everyone's palate ! The restaurant offers GREAT free entertainment on certain evenings. While we were there we had 2 nights... More
