We were told to try Amavi by a group of girls in our hotel, so pleased we did, the restaurant has very tasteful decor, the young team serving are very nice and attentive and the food is wonderful, we also tried the cocktails which were excellent, a nice touch was meeting the very talented lady chef who came out to speak to us, we told her how much we enjoyed the evening and would definitely recommend Amavi when you are in Goa....Superb

First of all I would dissuade anyone from going her. Its a highly hyped place, nothing extra ordinary. Let me start by systematically telling you why you shouldn't head here. On our entry the Staff made us feel very unwelcome. A Stout North Eastern man bluntly yelled that it will take 45 mins for food, the Kitchen is busy. Agreed, but there is a better manner of welcoming guests, the wait wasn't an issue at all for the food arrived in 10 minutes. Now coming to the Food Itself, We went for the Special (Nothing Special About It) Spice Rubbed Grilled Chicken and the Grilled Chicken Stuffed with Smoked Cheese. Both of these dishes were disgusting. Extremely Salty, The Chicken was Dry and In Both the Dishes, the Main Protein, The Chicken Tasted the same. Every dish they serve only a few drops Carrot Puree and Balsamic Glaze which doesn't complement the meat in any manner. I also tried the Stir Fried Velvet Tofu. Rubbish! The Tofu was not velvety, In fact it had a serious chew to it. It was served without and Sauce with plain rice, which doesn't make any sense.

In the end, one of the worst experiences with regards to fine dining. So much so that we left after this disgusting food without Dessert. An Absolute Waste of money, the Prices are unreasonable. We have no issues paying a high price for Delicious and Fine Food. This was simply not worth it. Please do yourself a favor, Save your Money, Save Your Time. Go Somewhere Else!

I want to try everything on this menu. We had a complimentary amuse bouche to start and the spanish white wine by the bottle.

Mains were excellent, beef Wellington; grilled tiger prawns; red snapper; goats cheese salad.

Deserts were a highlight with chocolate gelato with chilli and cherry with a soufflé and lots more.

Highly recommended. Wish we were staying longer !!!

There is also a great little art gallery next door.

Service good and friendly.

We had a good dining experience at Amavi. The food was good and so was the service and ambiance. Amavi is located in Calangute and is very popular among tourists.
