Well worth a visit, especially if you like ocean food.

Good food, well worth a try. A good choice of sea food and recommended if this is the sorts of dishes you are looking for, as they specialise more than some other restaurants.

One of our favourite restaurants in Candolim, never disappoints. One of the few where I am not over faced with food and can comfortably eat 3 courses, also sone very nice Chilean sauvignon wine. Great ambiance, food and service, what more could you want?

We visited on a recommendation from a fellow guest at our hotel. We weren't disappointed! The host is Swedish, this venue is clean and welcoming. All ingredients are fresh and tasty, I finished off with one of the best Irish Coffees I've had in a while. Please visit here, it's a great place to eat!!!

Having had a week of full on curries while in the North of India we just wanted something plain and tasty. Seating is outside and well laid out. The menu is lets say, comfort food related but comprehensive and will suit all tastes. The staff were attentive and friendly. We both ordered Fish & Chips!! the fish was pomfret and... More
