Went there very late, at around 12 am. The place was still open. We ordered Prawns, Calamari and some chicken dishes. All of them were okay. We got to sit at the candle-lit tables on the beach. Awesome ambiance.

Probably one of the best meals I've had in a while here, the Chocolate Brownie is sensational. Had Surf and Turf, will be booking this first on my return to Goa.
