We have been coming to Rising Waves for several years and were pleased to find that this year the food remains as good as ever, although the restaurant did not seem as full as it once was. The menu is extensive and there are extras on the daily 'specials' board. The food is well cooked, nicely presented and reasonably priced.... More

Just got back from a 3 week trip to Goa and "Rising Waves" Restaurant in Candolim definitely deserves a mention of recommendation !.......It is still in the same place at the side of Candolim Football Ground and can be missed, as the front entrance is not that visible from the road......but walking through a short entrance hall takes you out...

We have been to this restaurant before, so we knew we would enjoy it. When you are searching for it on the road side, you could easily miss it as it doesn't look very appealing from the outside, but once you get inside, its a different matter. The place is lovely, with tables out in the open air. Service and... More
