Good food at a good price

We visited this restaurant following the reviews on trip advisor and was as good as we read. After a lovely welcome, we ordered a glass of red wine at only 160 rupees and ordered the pomfret fish fillet, which came with a lovely salad, tartare sauce and some chips. There is also a nightly special... read more

This is a very nice family run restaurant. Katrina (Swedish lady) wife of Banno (Goan) runs front of house helped by staff whilst her husband runs the kitchen. Menu is a bit limited but all cooked to order. Steaks and sauces are very nice, juicy and tender. A variety of seafood, chicken and steak dishes are on offer together with... More

This restaurant is situated close to the Whispering Palms hotel. The owners Katarina and Banno pay attention to detail, Katarina is front of house and works hard to please. Banno is the chef and proud of his restaurant. The food is excellent,I particularly like their fillet steaks.They hail from Scandanavia and a visit to the restaurant is an absolute pleasure.

It doesn't look much during the day - you would just walk past, but on a night it comes to life and you are very lucky to get a table! Excellent continental type food - fabulous home made desserts, Very good service

The place was tucked away so you would not walk past it but that Is what is nice about it also. It is well seated with a traditional and homely feel. The manager who has ran this place for many years has a real eye for detail and made you feel very welcome and was the heart of this place.... More

Excellent food in this Scandinavian/English type restaurant in the heart of Candolim. A terrific find after a recommendation from a fellow guest in our hotel in Calangute. Surf and Turf were to die for and the Pavlova was a treat. Mainly ~English clientale but worth it and the service was good and the welcome warm.
