We went here for dinner on our first night in Candolim. We shared the tandoori platter which had chicken cooked in different spices. We also shared an array of side dishes.

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!
