Very quaint and unique inside. The staff were lovely and really helpful. The food itself was gorgeous and came with a lot of sides already. We ate on one of the balconies - even though the balconies are small, it is definitely worth sitting there. The dessert was the best part - Banana with Rum Caramel - topped off a... More

Over all I would say the food wasn't excellent but the Goan choices were better. It's a great spot for a beer on one of the balconies over looking the street. The waiter was first class spoke excellent English and is a credit to the business.

Amazing place for breakfast. Nice atmosphere with kind of Spanish view. Mini terrace. Portuguese atmosphere. Host is perfect. Food is yummy. Came for breakfast alone and has great time. Would definitely recommend. Good alternative to 5 star if you want to experience goan.

Indulgence personified! Set your taste buds afire, with the tantalising, coconut based, spicy fish curry & crisp, flaky, fried fish... I'm drooling just at the thought of it all.

Took some of my guests here and they loved the food the ambience and the overall experience. The waiters are very friendly and you feel like you are being served in a Goan portuguese home. Louis the propreitor is very friendly and takes very good care of his customers.

Can't beat this place for decor and ambience. The staff are fabulous. The music is great. The coffee is the best and the spaghetti is to die for. Always visit when in Goa. Never disappointed.

The restaurant has a pop art feel with walls covered with grafitties. Food is excellent and located in one of the most pitoresque streets in Pangim

The restaurant characterises all that was good and lovingly retained with honesty. Great food especially the idea of mixed pasta...wife loved it. Food is decently priced and very well done. Brilliant service (noticed only one waiter...I mean how could he)!

Found this place through a friend's recommendation. Located in a side street, Venite is set in an original Portugeese house in the Latin Quarter. The restaurant is full of character and old world charm. The food was fresh and home cooked. Delicious sea-bass and pasta dishes are to be tasted. The service was friendly and welcoming. The toilets were very... More

Venite is located in old Panjim. The street looks very Europinion. Small road like the old town in Nice. Venite is located in a 100 year old house. Great Goan food. The service too is very good. It's open all day. The sea food is fantastic. It has lovely small balconies where they have set up tables for 2. Very... More
