“Fine & Classy Dining in South Goa!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Finally had the opportunity to visit Cavatina after hearing so many rave reviews.

Getting there is a bit of a treasure hunt, but after that it's an awesome culinary journey to dreamland!!

Avinash & his pretty wife have done an excellent job of using their wealth of experience to make available a well crafted menu.

Full marks to the Scallops with risotto & beef skewers!! Definitely a must try.

If you're lucky the chef will join you for desert & a drink ;)

“Delightful dishes !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

We visited Cavatina twice during our 4 nights stay in Goa at the Taj Exotica. We were actually recommended to visit by Indigo Airlines. They made the suggestion upon landing at the airport !!

The first day we visited, we were quite late for lunch. We drifted out of the hotel and wandered down the track as guided by the hotel staff in the direction of Cavatina. Despite closing time for Cavatina, we made a special request to the staff and the Chef was more than willing and flexible to our needs for 4 adults and 3 young boys !!

We had some amazing dishes and desserts and the Chef was incredibly friendly and helpful with our choices off the menu. The staff are equally friendly and were going above and beyond to serve us after there normal closing time.

We said we would return and we did 2 days later for more sumptuous delights.

If you are staying at the Taj Exotica this is a must visit as it is a 5 - 10min walk. If you are within the vicinity you should also make an effort to visit this little haven for delicious food.

“Fantastic food at great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Chef Avinash has put together a surprisingly cosmopolitan menu and expertly describes cooking style and recommends dishes. This was the best meal I've had in Goa (on numerous visits) and I cannot wait to come back on my next visit. I can highly recommend the steak which was one of the best I ever tasted.
