“The best restaurant in Baga!!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This is a restaurant not to be missed. The staff are amazing and so attentive to your every need. The best thing though is the food, our party of 6 all said we had the best fillet steak we have ever had there and i will soon submit a pic of this! The kitchen is open so you can watch as the chefs prefer your food and the atmosphere is lovely. The staff and owners are great and have a laugh with you, they all speak very good English. 5 stars very much deserved for Under the Stars Restaurant!!

“Best food in Calangute”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

As the title states, Under The Stars was brilliant each of the 3 times we visited. Not one of us failed to leave with a big smile after eating some unbelievably tasty food. Stand out dishes were the truffle potato cheese ravioli, shrimp wrapped in bacon,and the star of the show, the fillet mingon steak, up there with the best steaks I've had the pleasure of eating. Adi is an attentive waiter who ensures you have everything you need, and the look on the head chefs face when you tell him how nice the food is shows he really cares about the quality of the plates leaving the kitchen. Just wish we'd discovered the place last year.

“Can't wait to go back!!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Went there twice on our last visit to Goa and can't wait to go back!
King prawn starter gorgeous, crab cake a little dissapointing. Fillets out of this world!
The service is excellent, if ordering a fillet they explain how long it will take, you can't rush a quality cut of steak!!
The large kitchen window looks out over the restaurant, you can see everything being freshly cooked and prepared.
Going to try the king prawn balcao next!
Best value and quality in calangute!

“TWO VISITS”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Initially found hard to locate but just off the road from Calangute to Baga - find Pinto's grocery and liqure shop and it is just down the side street from this.
Good service, attentative with various live music on during the week.
On each visit we had different starters and main courses and all were excellent.
You can see the kitchen from your table and the ratio of staff is high - they put great care into the food preparation and delivery.
The toilets were also one of the best in relation to standards and cleanless we experienced in Calangute during our 2 week stay!
The only restaurant we visited twice during our stay - there is so much competition but try and find this one as we are sure you will enjoy.

“Our number 1 restaurant in Baga”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

It has been 2 years since our last visit to Goa and under the stars did not disappoint.
We first tried this restaurant when it was known as Troika, it was soon changed to under the stars and since then, from what the owners say, they have been busy.
We were greeted with such a warm genuine welcome, we were surprised that they remembered us, Ade the waiter even remembered our names, now that’s impressive. The owners came straight to us and greeted us like old friends, what a great start to a fantastic meal.
The menu was well presented with a great choice; there is something for everyone here. The prices are hard to beat and the service was relaxed but staff keeping an eye over everything.
It turned out that one of the brothers worked on Cunard ships and it transpired that we knew quite a few of the same people. ( I worked for 9 years on the QE2) For a restaurant in Goa, this family have captured something very special and I think unique. The presentation of the food is probably the best I have seen in any local restaurant and the concern for guests during the meal is apparent from the owners.
There was a female singer on Thursday when we dined and the atmosphere was light with people dancing, both Indian and Europeans, it made good entertainment.
We are here for a month and will definitely be returning to under the stars taking friends with us, like any business, word of mouth is the key to success and under the stars is a success.
Thank you to everyone for a great start to our holiday.
