“well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

This is probably the cleanest restaurant in canvelossim. the owner fatima runs a very tight ship & is very professional & caring lady. We visited this place 4 times during our stay in goa & the food & service was good at all times. We even had the roast pork 3 times it was lovely. definatley well worth a visit. The toilet is well kept up to english standards, very clean. we will be back to visit december.

“What a fantastic place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Fabulous food & service. Had several meals here & all were excellent. The waiters were great & Fatima the owner was lovely. Even the cocktail maker came for a chat. Highly recommend this place.

“Very, very poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is my second year in Cavelossim. Had read reviews on Trip Advisor and figured Octima sounded good so visited last night (2nd Jan) with my wife and daughter. First impressions were good - nice location with spacious surroundings, although very quiet (not necessarily a bad thing). Downhill rapidly from there unfortunately - service comically bad (45 minutes to get first drinks - second drinks never arrived). Starter (Szechuan prawns) OK but luke warm and it took almost an hour to reach our table. Mains (2 prawn curries and a seafood sizzler) truly awful. Roti and naan were great. Really can't recommend this place, there are so many better places to eat in Cavelossim. Maybe it was the chef and owners night off?

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We have visited Octima restaurant on many occasions, and never once had a bad service or meal, as other reviews say Fatima is a truly lovely lady and goes out of her way to please all the customers.
Truly lovely family who make you feel special and very welcome even if just popping in for drinks
will be going there again this year on our stay in Cavelossim
