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...

After looking up some websites for good eating places near Panjim, we bumped into this... we, a group of seven, headed to the restaurant with some very high hopes... Ambience and decor...10 on 10... beautiful setting Food and service... very disapppointing... the spaghetti that we ordered was not eatable at all.

Rated as the no 1 romantic spot in Goa I was very disappointed with the quality of their food. I went with an Australian friend in the heat of the afternoon and as recommended we ordered two chilled beers. The decor and ambience was to expectations. At the owners request we ordered some rechado masala fried prawns and chorizo on... More

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.
