After being told by Taxi Driver that Rising Waves was now closed, and directed to another restaurant, we were then pleased to find out that Rising Waves had not closed, and this was a trick by some taxi drivers to divert custom elsewhere. We should know better !!
The restaurant is now run by John Mendez, with Moses as Head waiter, with his 8 years’ experience in French/Italian restaurant in Bombay, and friendly helpful staff.
Ate here many times, it has a nice atmosphere and food as always was excellent with a wide range of European and local options, all at very reasonable prices, and is our number one choice amongst the better restaurants in Candolim.
A special mention for our fillet steaks, which were cooked perfectly and the biggest and best we have had. Staff attentive and always on hand.
Located next to football ground, get a taxi and insist on Rising Waves, make it part of your holiday, you won’t be disappointed !!

Weve been to rising waves a few times over the last couple of years - all enjoyable with fantastic food. This year we're here with our daughter and her partner -so we asked the taxi driver for the restaurant but when he started to go in the opposite direction we challenged him...he told us that the 'contract' had ended and the place he was taking us to (just past mermaids) was the new restaurant with the same menu etc
After some insistence on our behalf he took us to rising waves near the football pitch where we had another enjoyable meal -when we told the owner of rising waves about the taxi driver it appears the manager from the original restaurant has set up somewhere new and is asking taxi drivers to take customers to his new place instead -obviously as we didnt eat at the new place we cant comment on the food but just wanted to make people aware that rising waves hasnt closed down etc
