Exceptional interiors and great choice of drinks. Great food especially the tapas. We ordered a cosmo pitcher with some mushroom and prawns starters. The service was up to the mark.

“just average experience in macaras”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Had heard so much about Macaras, but was dissapointed a bit. Food and snacks were average. Cocktails were not nice at all. Just that ambiance is good minus the mosquitoes.

“An Relaxing Evening Over a Bottle of Wine......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

me and my wife along with another couple visited maracas for an evening where we just wanted to relax over a bottle of wine and spend some time together chatting away....
nestled in between the junction at o coquiero, porvorim with roads on either way leading to calangute and mapusa this place has been a revelation to many a customers who have dropped in just being inquisitive....
but it does suprise you with its ofset decor and 2 different dining areas....
one is the indoor set up with comprehensive decor and other being the garden sit out over lounges and wrought iron furniture....

the drinks are neatly poured while the starters and main course has been quite a revelation

a must try is the beef chiurimuiri, bacon wrapped chicken , chicken satay skewers and thier steak is also pretty good , done as per customer requests..

we had a awesome time n really relaxed to the full..
ralph is the proprieter of this place and has done a fab job with the decor and set up while having a excellent eye for the menu as well...
he does drop into tables for a hi bye , tit bit conversation with guests, which gives a personal touch to the evening and each one feels great....

a must visit... for an relaxing evening over wine.....
