We were in Candolim for a couple of weeks and after visiting a few bars we settled on this one as it had a brilliant atmosphere, good food and staff who can't do enough for you. Don't worry about the bills they have more control around that now. The cocktails are very good!

We went here for a drink last week as it's one of the few places on the main road that physically has a bar. Karaoke as usual but fortunately no one was attempting to embarrass themselves! Decided to order some bar snacks of skewered chicken and paneer tikka. We were literally taken aback by the taste. Delicious, distinctive and just... More

More of a drinkers bar for Brits than a restaurant. Eaten there a few times and food was ok. Staff are very friendly and service is good. Toilet facilities are reasonable and probably better than other places in vicinity. They have entertainment on most nights and also have Trip Advisor meet ups once a week. If your looking for a...

This used to be a brilliant restaurant, but sadly over the years no one seems to start using it until about 10pm because they know that it is one of the only bars that stay open late, they shut the front of the bar off and everyone has to move into the back of the restaurant, the staff can not...

Not a place I would recommend for eating, poor lighting thus no ambience. On the positive side the bar is always buzzing after about 10.00pm. The people I have meet over the last couple of years were great company however, it does seem to attract a fair view of what I would describe as low-life. I always get the feeling... More
