Good atmosphere, needs refurbishing though

This is a restaurant I have often visited, with good service and a western menu. I would recommend it for fish dishes. Though I will continue to there in the future, something is missing. Whether the decor has lost its novelty value or the menu is less interesting, its hard to tell what makes it... read more

The quality of the fish I got was bad. I didn't eat it. The vegetables look like the where comming out of a can. My friend rice was too salty. But the soup was good afterall.

Great place to have authentic goan food. Loved the stuffed crab :-) The place is in an old indo-portuguese building. The balconies are too narrow but its fun to sit there... takes you back in time.

Welcome to one of the oldest restaurants in Goa......the place is in the heart of Panaji city...the trick to find is its behind the first petrol pump as you enter Panaji from the Mandavi bridge.......Venite has a set menu and wine list but its enough for the palette of those seeking authentic Goenkar aka Portugese Menu.....its has small balconies overlooking...

Tucked away up a flight of stairs this hotel's restaurant is easy to overlook! However simply look up from the street and you'll notice the charming tiny balconies poking out from the hotel's facade, where diners are seated.

Our hotel recommended this place, as it was interesting and served Indian/Goan food. The restaurant has real different interior-lots of stuff and graffiti from hippy era, but charming. Food was very good and service excellent. One of our best meals.

Venite (apparently pronounced Veneeet) is located in a charming old building on 31 January road, in the Latin Quarter in Panjim-Goa. Great place to sit by the window and watch the life float by (yes it doesn't merely pass you by in Goa). Good food, there is a mixture of the innovative and traditional Goan cuisine on the menu so...
