I decided to wait until we ate in a few places here in Goa before trying to finalize a rating for any. Excellence in NYC and excellence in Goa, where a good dinner for two can cost less than a house red in New York, are different, need I say. That said, if "price" is important, this establishment charges more... More

A friend of us suggested this place and we went there around 6 Pm. We learnt that the restaurant closes by 7pm but we still got in and ordered an early dinner. The owner allowed us to stay beyond 7 Pm and we thoroughly enjoyed his hospitality and suggestions on food.

Came here to try some seafood as it was a Trip advisor recommended restaurant near me. The prices are a lot higher than everywhere else near by but there's good reason for it! The service is amazing, food is amazing and location right on the beach is amazing. Highly recommended!
