John at Ciaran's has created a little oasis of calm and beauty on Palolem Beach. We stayed for a week in a garden hut the week before the 2016 season started. This means that they were still building many of the huts, the restaurants were not yet open and the front of the hotel had a screen blocking the beach.... More

One of the shacks that we visited. Food is decent. Right on beach. So you can enjoy the view while gulping down a soothing drink or eating food. Sea food is good. Make sure you ask the price before ordering.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The restaurant is excellent, the atmosphere is relaxed and the staff friendly. Cannot fault the food or staff. The included breakfast, afternoon tea and cake and complimentary water is also great. However, I would not stay here again, we stayed in a sea view beach hut, which looks great and are reasonable well furnished... More

Ate here twice over the course of a week - first night had an Indian dish and my partner had veg lasagne. Both meals were average to good - most notably overpriced however. Accompanied with Sula sparkling wine which was delicious - do try it. Second time - had light bites, highly recommend the fried veg/soy dish. Delicious - knocked... More

This was our 3rd stay at Ciarans and it was as good as ever. I was I little concerned at first as our room was next to the bar / restaurant but it was great. Just a few steps and we were in a lovely restaurant, it never got noisy and it closes around 10.30 so it's not a problem... More

The atmosphere is cheery and there was an excellent Diwali show for the customers, and the food was fine, but not brilliant. We asked for chips but got rice, and the service was a little slow, but not really slow or bad enough to complain about! Seemed a little overpriced for the quality, but wasn't at all bad. Goan sausage... More
