Popped into Venite twice while in Panjim, once in the day to cool down with a lime soda and snacks and to sit on the terrace overlooking the street and once inside in the evening for a yummy cocktail. Decor is sweet and quirky, a nice place to chill with good atmosphere.

This restaurant is located in a small lane and lacks the benefit of location but yet it was very busy when we visited on a Friday afternoon. The restaurant has its regular clientele who make it a compulsory stopover every time they visit Goa. The food is outstanding and the staff are all very friendly and prompt. The restaurant was...

Went there for lunch and got a seat at their tiny tables that are wedged into their tiny balconies. Great Portuguese food, lovely drinks and amazing ambience. Loved it!

The food here is not absolutely the best in town, and the service isn't quite as good as you might find elsewhere. Do not let that put you off, however. Both are fine - and you will never, ever forget sitting out on one of those tiny balconies, eating your food, and watching Goa wander past under your very feet.... More

Even before I walked in the door, loved the place looking up from the street at the charming sitout balconies on the 1st floor and the interesting door that you step into to enter the magical world of venite. I couldn't sit down for a couple of minutes as the decor was so fascinating and I love quirky so just... More

One of the "must visit" places in Goa. Sea food is absolutely mouth watering. Reasonably priced. This is place has it's own old and rustic charm. Loved it.

We went there for couple of beers and appetisers, as we had our dinner reservations else where. This place reminds of the good old days, and it is one of those local joints you should visit. Cant comment of food, as we really only went there for beers. Service was prompt.

Be it the pork or the chicken, I advise you to order it. It is unlike anything that London, Manchester or Bradford could possibly ever have to offer in the way of good food. It is sublime, has clarity of flavours and is the genuine article. In short, it's ambrosia.

Really recommend this restaurant if you are interested in good Goan cuisine. The food was superb and the ambience absolutely intriguing. The balcony is a bit narrow for comfort but the food is recommended.
