Went there with some friends In order to get some seafood. The food was burnt, the amount of food was not enough and the service was lacking to say the least. The entertainment was nice.

The best dinner we had on Palolem. Live music, good crowd, friendly staff. The resort also looked promising if you plan to book your stay here.

Ciarans has a lovely location right on Palolem Beach, especially for the sunset. Its décor is beautiful too, being all woody and hung with paper stars. The toilets' décor is a unique surprise. The food and drink at Ciarans is on the expensive side, but it is a little adventurous and has some interesting fusion items on the menu. The... More

We were glad we ate here - in addition to the superb food, there was the added bonus of live music, a relaxed jazz set which was very enjoyable.A beach front table added to atmosphere. Will definitely return next time in Palolem.

The classiest restaurant on the shore line of palolem beach, ciarans boosts of really soothing love music, beautiful decor and a cozy ambience. The flavored rice as well as few of the Italian dishes are really delicious. The buffet is ok, nothing worth mentioning.
