“Their 'ACT' NOT quite together...Yet !!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Fantastic setting/garden & grounds..6 star ! -.3 of us ..open at 6.00pm not ready till after 7pm.Humbly suggest they get things sorted.
Sunday 'Buffet' [3 meats] + help yourself to Veg & Roasts....etc.This would have been Excellent if we could have chewed the Beef & Pork.
Waiters very good but Under POOR management.
Very good at plying drinks from Mini Coke/limca/tonic bottles......etc.

Did pass on these concerns on the way out but...Very sorry- this is the Start of the season ??!!
We are dissappointed to have to write such a review.

THE TRUTH HURTS...
IT COULD BE THE very 'BEST'

shiversme, Owner at Shivers Garden Restaurant & Sports Bar, responded to this review, December 4, 2012
Thank you so much for your opinion as it is very important to us as we will always encourage constructive criticism to strengthen our service and quality. I would like to start by not justifying your complaint but by apologizing for the inconvenience caused but just to clarify a little further you'll were are first customer for the evening session besides our afternoon session for which our meats were carved freshly according to our batches along with the crust which is requested by some customers and that is one of the reasons why we have a banquet where all our customer can choose their own meats and cuts so that we can suit almost every taste. we always encourage bookings especially on Sunday to avoid any misunderstandings and with the main purpose of providing personalized service as it is one of our busiest days in the week. We further apologize again as this was only brought to our notice while you'll were leaving or else we could have taken corrective measures to avoid this awkward situation and as this was your first time I would like to personally invite you'll to have dinner with us again. Please understand this is a family run restaurant and we need you feedback to help us get better. We do understand that we cant keep please everybody but our goal is to keep trying. Thank you once again for your advice and concern.

“Beautiful setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We visited Shivers on the recommendation of a fellow holidaymaker and we are so glad we did! The gardens are beautiful and there's a gazebo area with drapes that looks fantastic. The food was superb and a nice change from the usual curries on offer. A waiter went past with a burger and it looked fantastic - will have to go back to try that! Go on, give this place a try - you wont regret it!

“one of the best restaraunts ive been in, not just in india but anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

this place is set down a dusty track, but dont be put off by that, the garden area is a really nice setting for that special evening meal, and if you want to impress that special someone in your life, pop in before the day you plan to eat there and book the gazebo, beautifull setting and no extra charge
the food is to die for, and is the only place in candolim that i returned to, and cant wait to go again when i return to goa
the waiters are the best i came across in india,they where lads from northern india, and a lot of staff in england could do with watching these guys and copying there manners
the owner personally comes to each table to make sure everything is ok
all in all a great resteraunt, with great staff and great food, and very reasonably priced
great night

“Wonderful Wedding Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Thank you Melroy for making my wedding day so good. We knew we were not wrong in picking your restaurant for our evening reception. The restaurant looked fantastic and the food was superb and what lovely friendly staff - they are a credit to you. I could not have asked for a better venue than your restaurant. Everything I asked for, you supplied and the choices you gave me for the menu were amazing. My family and friends absolutely loved it. Will be back to see you soon, but this time without the stress of planning for a wedding, so get the roast dinner ready, because I for one will be there to eat it. Oh, yes nearly forgot to say, thanks for having the new toilets ready, you said that they would be ready and you were true to your word - and yes the new toilet block looks really good.

“Try the burger...its mind blowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I've eaten in Shivers quite often. And the food is just amazing. One should try the cocktail "Peru Pyala" made of Gauva juice and it really great and refreshing.

Just recently had their beef burger. Its one of the best I've ever eaten. The meat cooked to perfection and the the toppings were generous a whole meal with crispy fries. I can recommend their steaks and fish and chips...love it

staff is friendly and interactive. Very tranquil ambiance and peaceful hidden surrounding amidst lush garden. Always make it a point to come back here.
