No need to book but worth a visit, I had a first class meal for around £6.00. I did not return but only because there was too many other places to visit

My friends and I had dinner here, it was one of the best meals we had during our stay in Goa. I had steak and it was superb! The staff were very friendly and attentive. I will definitely visit Rising Waves again when I return to Goa.

Gave this place another go because we used to enjoy it, Pointless exercise never again. Menu is now pub grub and the waiters do not speak English, which is all manageable until they ran out of wine, ultimate crime.

We must have been the other party of PaulaWales.on Christmas Eve, also with 12 guests. We also had to wait 20 minutes to get a drink after ordering 4 times, he kept forgetting or getting it mixed up, even though he had written it down, then wait to find the bottle opener then wait for some ice, a very poor...

So my guess was very much right. I did hit the nail on its head. We were well informed by our well wishers that there was an desperate attempt to write us off. Yes, I do admit there was a little confusion by our new waiter in getting the food order in place as, he was not aware that the... More

Apologize, if you were really disappointed. We would have appreciated if you had intimated us about your greivences. Instead you choose to post a reveiw. Were You actually present? or is it a paid review. You guys can be awfully shameless. We are not here to satisfy people with a free meal for cheap publicity. God bless your souls and... More
