Description: A Reverie is dramatically transformed with a fresh approach and energy. Our dishes edible installations and all is not what it seems! Food can do much more than just fill your stomach. At A Reverie, we are particularly interested in triggering memories through aromas, landscapes, childhood, surroundings and life. Some creations play with aroma, texture and flavour while others are designed to be provocative, tell a story or evoke an emotion. Most importantly, deliciousness! A Reverie is an expression of the evolution of the food on the table and the surrounding environment. We want your experience at A Reverie to be anything but dull. Nothing about a meal here would be humdrum. From our appetisers or sharing tapas plates and main courses to our stunning array of sweet'treats' that round off the meal, there will always at least one dish that makes you feel glad to be alive. At a more profound level, it's about food that resonates on an emotional as well as sensual level and "it demands psychological reflection". In other words, one doesn't come to A Reverie for a meal, one comes for an experience............

“Somewhere Very Very Special to Eat in Goa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We came to Goa (again, again) in January and A Reveie was on 'my list'. It came out number one place to eat for something special!

This place has so much style - the tables are set out beautifully, the music is chilled out, and the food is spot on! Outside you just see a white picket fence around the place - inside - I felt like I had walked into some sort of tardis - it is really beautiful and so spacious - I could see this in a Bond film.

It is not the sort of place that serves up gigantic portions (just blindingly good food and you don't go out hungry). This is quality that would cost a bomb in London (went to Chapter One for my Birthday last year - the food at A Reverie was just as good) we just had a cocktail each, two courses (Steak and John Dory - followed by divine deserts) and the bill (with tip) came to just over £30 for two. In London that would have been nearer £200.

A Reverie adds a new dimension to eating in Goa - I do hope you visit and enjoy!

“Simply romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Was here last week, just a night before my husbands birthday. I informed the waiters about his birthday, and they very thoughtfully n lovingly co operated by getting me a small birthday cake at 12 midnight. They really made it special. The staff there is the best one can come across. Also, the ambience, live jazz night and the decor was splendid. Moreover, food was nice . I ordered berry salad and fish and chips , they were fresh and yum. A very big thanks to reverie for making it so special.
