Fantastic place to eat and the food is absolutely scrumptious. Have eaten here may times on my holidays in paolem. The staff are very nice,they do all they can to help with any needs required. There is a bar and the restaurant is on the beach front so you can eat your meal and listen to the lovely therapeutic sounds... More

Decent place for good food, reliable and clean. Staff were friendly and recognised us everytime we ate there. Pretty much the only place in town that was open with a full menu during August. All the food came well presented and even the western dishes were up to standard. Thumbs up!

There's not much open in Palolem at the moment and Dropadi actually looks terrible from the outside but is one of the best places open currently during the monsoon - so stick with it! It probably has the cleanest toilet we've been to since we've travelled round India, has friendly staff (at least for us Brits), the sand floor keeps... More

Location is great. Liked the sand filled floor concept so that one can walk in straight from the beach. Fish curry was very tasty. BUT Attitude of the service staff was a bit uncouth. They tend to be more comfy serving foreigners

There was hardly any place open in Palolem in the monsoon but thankfully Dropadi was open. Had spent a lovely evening here with breezer and seafood chili fry. The view of the sea is just awesome to say the least. Service was a bit laid back but who cares when you have such a beautiful setting in front of your... More

The fish was fresh and well prepared. Nice ambience and can hear the sound of the waves as it is on the beach. Good and lip smacking food.

Located on the beachfront with the dining area open to the beach, the ambiance is just too good. In true Goa fashion, the staff won't hurry you, nor will they serve in a hurry, which isn't bad by itself as this is Goa & you're enjoying just sitting there. The food is good but not great.

Based right on the sea front of Palolem beach we ate at Dropadi and found the food was delicious. I went for a mushroom and spinach pasta which tasted very authentic italian. Not many restaurants in India seem to cook pasta well but Dropadi managed well. Priced at 350 RS which is quite expensive for India, but I couldn't complain... More

We ordered paneer tikka, chicken tikka, french fries, chocolate milk shake, tea, cold coffee, an orange and vodka cocktail and chili cheese bread. Chilli cheese bread and chocolate milkshake was very good and paneer tikka and orange cocktail was very bad. Rest everything had decent taste. The view is good since it opens up directly on beach and being July,... More
