Amazing food right at calangute. The food is different unlike the regular curries and joints..Fresh seafood, very friendly service, The price and quality is also worth-it. It’s definitely a must try restaurant for all..There is an old vintage car at the entrance of the restaurant which displays all the fresh sea food available. to me that was the eye-catcher. Generally... More

We walked by this restaurant earlier in the day and to be totally honest, we were four Aussies, missing a bit of red meat in India, so got quite excited by the lamb and beef on this menu. So we booked in, checked it out on TA when we got back, not bad reviews, went for it! Well, three of... More

We love it here & each time we go to Goa we come back. The chicken shaslik is amazing and really good value. Service is really good & waiters very polite.

just take a wander down holiday street Calangute walk past most of the other good food places look for the car with fresh fish under the bonnet and you have found abracadabra . Be brave and let the chef make some thing just for you .Just experience ABRACADABRA and let the chef work his magic

Very disappointed with this place as food was overcooked and menu very poor. It is attached to the hotel but I would not recommend it to you

whilst in India you get a little curried out, so finding this restaurant which was totally middle eastern was a lovely change. we both really enjoyed it. With an open kitchen you can watch them cooking the kebabs etc. Service good.

Food is not that tasty, hell a lot of waiting time. We ordered some kaboos and hammus, instead of kaboos, we were given the roll made in wheat roti.

However, they are all on a theme pretty much, being served with an odd combination of boiled vegetables and rice. I had their version of shish taouk which, normally, would come with a salad and...
