Best sea food in Goa..

Fantastic! One of the best meals I've had in Goa. Situated right behind hotel Caravela Homestay. Great selection, nice ambience, enough quality value famous amongst Indians as well as foreigners visitors, fabulous service, and they serve Indus Pride.. Highly recommended :)

The food is really good & I guess their speciality is the local cuisine, apart from the general fish / prawn curry rice. Thats what I go here for. My second visit here. Its an old place, where one would go have a bite and head home, so dont expect fancy frills here. I presume its a family run place,... More

This quaint little restaurant is located in one of the many by lanes of Panjim, on the 1st. Floor.The steps leading up to the restaurant are of wood.On entering one feels he or she is in another time frame say the 50ies or 60ies.One gets dazzled by all the posters of pop stars and motor vehicles of a bygone era.And...

Over priced for just about average Goan food. The prawn curry at 700/- just about did me in, true the prawns served were large and plentiful, but it was close to high way robbery! If you want to sit in a heritage home and pay trough your nose for local food, this place is for you...

So we drove all the way from South Goa to try out the food here, on a rainy June evening and it was well worth the ride. Heidrich(not sure about the spelling) who runs the place waited up for us and personally helped us chose which dishes to try. We had a lot of fish dishes, Vegetable Xacuti and even... More

Venite is located in the fontainhas area of Panjim which has a strong Portuguese influence. The interiors of Venite are splashed with random/new age/hippy drawings and quotes. The food was excellent, we ordered calamari and prawn starters. And all three steaks- chicken, pork and beef. Topped all that up with homemade bebinca for dessert... Divine ! We went there at...

Tried basic beer and some vegetarian starters. Was pleasantly surprised with the bill not even crossing 500 :D I specifically took the balcony table which was overlooking the street below but was probably only 15 inches wide. Being blocked by the wall on one side and the balcony railing on the other, it was a unique evening time for me.... More
