The venue belies the mastery of the food, after many beach shacks this made a great change. The crab cakes as recommended in another review were moist and tasted of crab, the chicken satay was very tasty. The two main dishes one of which was a beef filet mignon served with veg, salad and fries and the second being fish... More

Visited here at the end of a 3 week India tour. Fancied some European food. Excellent decor, very European style and well air conditioned. Went twice in 6 days. Great on both occassions. Very reasonable wine. Cheap beer. All food excellent. The cheesecake for puddings is one of the best I've had anywhere. Mainly European clientele. Very popular with locals... More

Husband pleased with his... More

This restaurant has a very different menu and is in a different league to other local restaurants. Do not arrive looking for Goan, or even Indian dishes. The menu is truly international, the food is extraordinary and very good. The service is excellent and the restaurant comfortable and well appointed. If you are in the area you have to try... More

After reading such great reviews on TA, my fiancé & I were really looking forward to dining here; maybe this gave us such high expectations & that's why we were disappointed? But we felt that more attention was given to the presentation of the starters rather than to the taste & the flavours. The main courses were also less than... More

Highly recommend for great food at a ridiculously low price. Small, family run with a great menu. A hidden gem, you must visit Cavatina if you are staying nearby.

This place has great food , service and attention to detail. The menu is well planned out and executed. Chef Martins knows what he's doing and that shows in the food. I would recommend this place to anyone that appreciates great food.

We stayed at the Karma Royal resort, Benaulim (near Taj Exotica).This place is about 500 mts/ 10 min leisurely walk from there. Take a right turn just after Joecons at the T junction and walk till the next bend. This is a small place, with cozy, fresh ambience. we loved the food so much that we ate here several times...
