“A well conducted but bland international style restaurant”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

One of the few genuine restaurants conducted in permanent facilities to be found in Palolem. The atmosphere is at the "resort" end of ambience rather than that of the simple, friendly, informal character found in most cafes along this beach.

“Wouldn't let us eat here”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We went here for some simple food as we were both suffering from Delhi belly we'd picked up in Mumbai. We ordered soda waters and wanted to order plain rice. We asked for the wi fi code and were refused because we were not spending enough money. When we explained that we were ill and would not be spending Rs 500 on dinner, the waiter was rude and suggested we leave. We were very disappointed by the service and attitude here. Luckily Cuba and Neptune Point down the beach were much more accommodating and even made recommendations for a bad stomach.

“Unforgettable food”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

We chanced upon Ciarans at Palolem beach. And were left pleasantly amazed.
After a stroll on the beach we were thirsty and saw that Ciarans was a nice place for a bite. It's not easy to miss Ciarans.. Definitely a very upmarket place compared to a lot of budget huts/shacks on the beach. We sat on the upper deck of the restaurant and were witness to a lovely view of the beach and the resort itself. The rooms look very cosy and comfortable and plush too maybe, we didn't really see the rooms. They have a superb library and made me wish I was staying here. I guess they also have a spa, I could smell Ayurvedic lotions n potions in the air (not that this was a turn off, maybe a guest was just back from a massage) lol
At the restaurant We ordered for beer and mussels in white wine sauce... And they were heavenly. I'm definitely going back for more. We also came back for breakfast the next day, nothing spectacular but the quality and taste were good. This place is a lil pricey, for Goa, but then again I already mentioned Ciarans is a more high end resort at Palolem beach.
We plan to stay there the next time we visit Goa.

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

While in south Goa I ate in Ciarans a few times, each time I was there it was absolutely amazing. I tried chicken xacuti with rice and naan. The restaurant is lovely, always extremely busy which was a great sign and the atmosphere was lovely
