I first visited Dropadi 10 years ago on my first visit to Palolem. It was great then and I remember eating there more than once whilst we stayed in a hut along the beach. I'd not been back to the area for 7 years but recently returned and on our first night we went to Dropadi, mainly because they offered... More

Probably the best, yest most expensive restaurant in Palolem. It was so good though, that we ate here twice out of four nights. The prawns are monster sized! And the strawberry daiquiris are delicious! The restaurant gets very busy so best to book or eat early/later to avoid the crowds. It's perfect for a special night, you eat with your... More

Had dinner here as heard good reviews. However was disappointed. Service was good considering been almost full. Mutton curry was not great, had eaten thiis dish in 4 other restaurants and my favourite. But was not nearly as good, prawn dish, over cooked, fish curry was also substandard. Due to cash crisis in December, did try another meal a few... More

We were recommended by the masseuse and fruit vendor by the beach shack of Lalit where we are staying. After a dismal dinner with the Lalit beach shack, our taste buds were craving for some good Goan cuisine. Took a $3 cab ride one-way to get there. The restaurant was packed and it looked very much the go-to place for... More

We were told to try it - looks sketchy from the beach in comparison to other restaurants, but our experience was good. Indian food is delicious.

Liked the food but it wasn't great. The mutton was well done but nothing to write home about. Fish was also decent. One of the better restaurants in palolem

First restaurant on left once you enter the palolem beach. They serve good food and location is great. I wish they were open till late coz they close at 10 pm which I feel is little early.

Myself and my partner thought we would give this place a try having read all the decent reviews, one of those moments you wish you hadn't bothered. Nice location facing right on the beach but that's where it ends, service slow, obviously not enough staff to cover all the tabs they have crammed in, the table next to us may... More

Dropadi is situated on the beach next to the high street, one of the best restaurants in palolem, eaten here many times and every time food and service has been amazing, best to book or arrive early as always very busy

Came here about 3pm for lunch. Had fish tikka, and crispy squid. Both were perfectly cooked, and had delicious flavours. A beer for me and lime soda for him, we sat and watched the world for a bit, perfectly content in their comfy seats. Service throughout was great. Recommended.
