The food was fantastic whether it was Indian, Chinese or British etc! We tried breakfast, lunch, dinner, desert and drinks and they were all great. They also gave massive portions and was very cheap!

A nice place for breakfast if you are in this area, good prices and nice staff. The service is a bit slow when things get busy and they could change the tablecloths a bit more frequently.

Should have more variety of vegetarian food. It was difficult to decide from the limited menu. Non Veg coices must be good which we did not try

The Spice Oven, just down the road from resort Lagoa Azul in Arpora, is a very accommodating bar / restaurant. You can easily sit at the bar for a few drinks and while away several hours or dine on a very comprehensive menu with specials that change regularly. The lads that run it are friendly and provide first class service.... More
