Location and contact

Nostalgia serves authentic Goan and Indo Portuguese cuisine served in a semi formal dining style. We have been awarded best food in our category for the last 5 years consecutively. We have a full service bar, with a range of spirits and cocktails. The ambience is representative of old Portuguese homes and decor, with indoor and al fresco seating options. We have live music 6 times a week, ranging from Karaoke and instrumental Saxophone days to retro and evergreen dancing nights. Check our facebook page Nostalgia for updates on the week's events.

The ambience is step back into the yesteryear’s... the time of the Portuguese rule... if you prefer authentic Goan dishes, you must give it a try. Live music set a happy pace to the place. Step in and relish Goa with Nostalgia.

Dropped in for a bite after my dance session, and we ordered pork chops, although I was expecting a different kind of presentation. There were huge chunks of pork and the unique knife saved us from being messy. But, I must compliment on the rich...More

Authentic Portuguese fare, like feijoada and the utterly scrumptious gluten-free Bolo sans rival cake made with cashew nuts flour, in a charming retro chic setting. Very friendly service and Margarida's gracious hospitality make for a memorable dining experience.

The place is tucked into a little sleepy nook, but was a excellent find. This is the place local Goans go to for dinner, so the food is really authentic. I had Chilly Sausage, Chicken Cafreal Wings and some really nice desserts, Serradura, Bebinca and...More
