I was in viva panjim for lunch after i got recommendations about the restaurant, the food and ambience were average, while i seek recommendation to the waiter which is the fitting accompaniment for chicken xacuti he can't advise me properly. The food was average and i don't like to go there again.

The first time I went to this place was around 6 years back and the food was amazing!! But recently when I went a few months ago, it was such a disappointment!! It was suffocating and fish was not at all fresh!! In fact it was stale!! Was very very disappointed!! Never going back there ever again!!

This place feels like is a family run place. There is outdoor seating. Real authentic goan food though with a home touch to it. The whole atmosphere kind of gives it a feel as if you are in Europe.

It also has tables outside reminding one of al fresco dining as in Europe - but then Fontainhas resembles like some European quarter in Italy or Portugal. Restaurant offers good Goan cuisine - take your friends and family for an evening out... More

Had a late lunch and shared the coconut shrimp curry and a vegetable gravy with rice and chapati. All very tasty and light flavours! The waiter was very friendly and the atmosphere in and outside of the restaurant was cozy and sweet!

I had been to this restaurant on 4th may 2015. We were two people and had lunch over here. The restaurant is located at very nice locality of Portuguese Quarters. The food served here was of great taste. We tried goan food over here and it was splendid. A must restaurant to go and eat.
