“Unique Goan experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Excellent ambience and food exclusively and uniquely Goan. Traditional Dishes unavailable in most restaurants are available. Must try cheese fluffs, sanna and salted tongue. Service needs beefing up. Artifacts well chosen. Wooden Table and chairs -Goan craftsmanship a big relief from plastic ones widely seen around or mass produced ones. Great music. Vegetarians also have a good selection of Goan menu

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

The restaurant is spacious with the capacity of about 60 pax. With the live band on occasions it makes the ambience much fun loving exactly like goan culture. If you want to have authentic goan cuisine food, Nostalgia is the place to be where you can find the delicious vindaaloo, kefrial, sea food. Lovely experience !!

“Goan food as it should be...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

Nostalgia is a beautiful restaurant between Margao and Ponda in south Goa. The owner is a lovely Goan lady called Margarida and has taken over the running of the restaurant since her husband died three years ago. The style of the restaurant is completely unique, the bar the eating areas and the dance floor in front of the stage. There are several different and beautiful displays of earthenware pots, of cartoons and ceramic tiles. The staff are helpful and we were made welcome by all. The most outstanding feature for me was the food. In the north of Goa the food has become more suited to the western taste with its influx of foreign travellers for many years but here is a place where you can still taste the authentic and traditional meals coooked by Goans for centuries. It was a wonderful experience.

I Have eaten Goan and Portuguese cuisine at a lot of restaurants in Goa all my life, but nothing compared to what Nostalgia has to offer to you.
A must see and experience restaurant in Goa!
