Definately one of the best restaurants in Panjim. The restaurant takes u back in time, giving u a old feeling of the Portuguese times in Goa. It shows us the Culture/heritage of the Goan - Portuguese. The Goan - Portuguese dishes are well prepared (just how we Goans Prepared em at home). I also like their steaks. Must visit..

You are very unlikely to spot this place unless you were going into each alley in Panaji although its tucked in a narrow street just behind the GPO right at the heart of Panaji. It has a charm of its own. A bit unkempt, a bit wild but generally neat.The graffiti room is a bit tacky. The food is nothing... More

Once you enter the restaurant you get mesmerized looking at the 60 year old, pre Goan independence place and its authentic Portuguese decor with old charm... Quite a nice place to feel the Portuguese culture right in the heart of Panjim city.. But the enthusiasm doesn't go further .. Menu could have been more elaborate.. Even quality of food needs...

We've been coming to this restaurant every year since 2005 and shall continue as long as we can visit Goa. We love the quirky individuality of the place, the balconies, the graffiti room, the staff (who somehow manage to recognise us even though our visits are 12 months apart) and the food ain't too bad either! Let's be honest.. You... More

I liked the place very much . It has got a old Portuguese theme to the decor . Meal was wholesome for us. Try the Fish curry with Rice . they do not have Credit card facility , hence the host took me on his bike to nearby ATM.

Came here after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and boy I was in for a pleasant surprise! This quaint place is located in the narrow lanes of Panjim and is modelled on the old Portuguese Goan style. The ambiance takes you back in time. Superb! The staff consisting of the owner and his nephew were very polite and graciously... More

Luis Anton is known to be a good host, but a "greater" restaurateur offering year-after-year of undiminished quality and taste. The restaurant on the first floor of a building half-way down a narrow lane inside Panjim town adds to the mistique!!

The staff here were REALLY lovely and helped as much as possible but were admittedly very slow to serve. But, you're on holiday right so what's the rush? The Goan fish and chips I got seems sparse at first sight but were delicious and filling so don't be fouled into thinking you weren't served enough. Great lassis and fresh fruit... More

It's different boss! A local friend took me to this delightful restaurant and we sat in the bar section which has one major decor point - graffiti. It's tough to find if you don't know where, but it's pretty close to Panjim jetty and since it's been there forever locals are well aware of it. The story goes that the... More
