Old restored building

A good ambience, of an old restored building in Panjim close to the Mandovi bridge. Excellent food with great choices. The lobster was excellent though a bit overpriced. Best to check prices before ordering. Otherwise a great place with good choice of wines including an excellent Madeira.

Lovely joint. Slightly on the expensive side. Food was good. The cocktails were decent. We had late dinner here. The place was quite full when we left.

From the moment I entered through the shell and tile mosaiced doorway of Venite and ventured upstairs to a cozy balcony table i knew I would love the place. It has become a regular stop in my travels to Goa over the years and a comfortable place for a break from the hectic streets around. Service is fantastic and regulars... More

The idea was to have a quiet place to sit which had a difference rather than the run of the mill.

The bearers were friendly and cheerful.We had ordered drinks,... More

But the vegetables coming along the sausages were unimaginative and the potato mash quite disappointing. The service was good, the restaurant really charming, so I might give this... More

The food was not very good, the grafitti on the walls is interesting to look at but the restaurant itself is dark and a little gloomy.
