I am back here in candolim again, and have to say that the good at the mermaid is still the best ever, the fillet steak is to die for , as are the homemade deserts made by Katarina the owner. Staff and the owners are first class .

My husband and I have eaten here three times in the last two weeks and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. The food and service are top class, the fillet steaks are perfect, served with hand-cut chunky chips, the owner Katarina bakes the mouthwatering desserts daily...try her cheesecake it's gorgeous.

The only reason to go is to meet the lovely staff working there. Food was not impressive and location not the best. Especially disappointed because of all the good reviews the place had gotten.

Lovely little family run restaurant out of the hustle and bustle. We had not heard of the mermaid restaurant until our taxi driver and guide Vaz Alfondso recommend it to us "best steak in goa". A warm welcome from the owner katarine nothing was any trouble katarine answered any questions we had about the menu. I am a steak lover... More

We will be going to the Mermaid tomorrow as we do several times on our 2 visits to India a year....I don't have to worry about the standard of the food or the high level of service, as I know it will be as it always has been "excellent ". Katrina and Banos work hard to maintain the high standards... More

Delicious home from home food - we ate here three times during our stay in Candolim. Restaurant owner is very hands on and welcomes and chats to all her customers. The setting is quite breezy which makes it all the more enjoyable, but the piece de resistance are the deserts which shame many restaurants back in the UK. In particular,... More

Jim you replied by message to my reply on your review on the Mermaid. You stated I was clearly the owner...That is so incorrect...why would you say that. Your reply by message (to which you have blocked me). I know what I heard and saw...You tell lies. All that were there know what they saw...and its not what you say... More
