We alway visit the Mermaid at least twice during our holiday. This year we only went once. The food was, as always very good, but the service was very slow. The restaurant was fairly busy, but it took five minutes before our drinks order was taken and another five before it was served! There didn't seem to be enough floor... More

Wonderful food, very clean, lovely atmosphere - what more could you want? Owned by a beautiful couple, he is a Goan chef, she is the hostess (from Sweden) a wonderful combination of Indian food with an understanding of European tastes.

Felt I had to respond to Zoe054 Have you actually eaten at this restaurant or are you merely trying to gain another TA badge?? If you are going to give such a negative appraisal of a restaurant then back up your comments rather than just made statements which are obviously designed to discredit a really lovely restaurant. Even on a... More

The last review by Zoe is slander and total lies. I have reviewed this restaurant before and when we are on holiday in Goa we eat there at least 3 or 4 times a week . Katarina and her husband and staff are lovely people and really don't need things like this said about them sort it out TripAdvisor and... More

My friends & I had a wonderful meal in Mermaid. The steak was so succulent, just how I'd ordered. The wine selection is superb & so reasonable. The Swedish owner Katarina knows her wines well & takes pride in her knowledge of them & is a fabulous hostess. All in all, a fun filled evening at the Mermaid.

What the hell is Zoe054 going on about. This review is absolutely disgusting. We have regularly visited The Mermaid for the past ten years and have to say is always amazing. You don't get to No1 on Trip Advisor for nothing. This lady is extremely blunt with her reviews. I checked her previous reviews on Trip Advisor and I have... More
