The food is poor for the price they sell it. Only the ambiance is good with a rustic charm. Went there based on the reviews, however totally disappointed with the quality of food here.

Very nice ambient and good service but the food had not a good balance quality-price: fish and prawns were overcooked and little elaborated

Nice place.. quaint old world charm and good food. Decently fast service, surprising us when we were prepared to wait for longer. Good food if you want continental and European or goan food, and if you are seafood aficionado.

A 60+ year old restaurant set in an old Goan home in a tiny byline of Panjim. You have to climb a floor to reach it. If your a true lover of a quaint very local Goa experience this is it. The saloon is made up of two rooms, one of which is a bar with an unexpected graffiti wall... More

After many years we went for lunch to this restaurant. The ambience always pleasant, a bit refreshed from the past, typical the tables on the balcony. The service correct, as well as the food, that is acceptable. Prices a bit high.

We had a lovely breakfast at this very pretty restaurant. The restaurant looked incredibly Portuguese in this lovely town. Service was impeccable. We would recommend eating here or having a glass of wine at night.

The food at Venite was absolutely delicious, I especially loved the fish curry and bebinca! The atmosphere here is really chilled out and the staff are very polite!

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.
