Description: Discreetly tucked away, offering classic Goan fare at its finest, Firefly, is a delightful family owned and operated Bistro bar by the beach in the quiet little seaside village of Benaulim. It’s where urban chic and casual comfort meet. Where flavour is uncompromised by generous helpings and where casual elegance means incredible service and friendly people. For something entirely refreshing, choose from Firefly’s list of modern portions and vintage libations, which have been carefully crafted as a reverent celebration of Goan culinary tradition. Expertly prepared by our chef, it features classics, prepared exactly as they should be, yet with an artistic flair that is entirely refreshing. Whether a business luncheon, a family reunion or even if you are sharing a bottle with that someone special, we at Firefly will guarantee a warm experience.

“Match day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

Came here to watch the city vs arsenal community shield match. Besides being delighted that the gunners beat city 3 nil I had an awesome time listening to Brian bones the one man band for the night during the break and after the match, and also watching so awesome African acrobatics by the spring bok or box. Can't remember what they call themselves :-p but really good fun for the night, and as usual good food :)

“A Good Place To Chill Out With Friends & Family...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Have been to this place a couple of times and i must say it has improved and is doing very well thanks to the owner, Donavan & his efforts to keep the place in good shape. The food is delicious & well done. Service is quick. Good ambiance & total hygiene. Also very good pricing.
My last trip was with cousins for the Germany v/s France World Cup Match. The place was packed. But inspite of the huge crowd,the service was quick and food quality at its best.
Since i m from Goa, this will be my everyday hangout place with friends & family and i hope it always remains this way.

“A+”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This charming restaurant has really got me hooked. It is located very close to the beach and has a nice breeze blowing through out the day which works very well for the hot Goan summers. The ambiance is really great especially in the evening. It is a nice place for a romantic dinner, a night out with friends or even if you're going to dinner with your family. The food is beyond excellent! The Goan food is exceptional and the steaks are to die for! The bar scene is quite refreshing and fun. And the cocktails are really good. I would go there every single day if I could!
