Been here loads of times in the last 15 years or so. Always found everything upto the mark. The service, the food, the ambience and the music. The place was always busy, at times there was a queue just to get seated. The food does stand out and they definitely live upto their rating. Best Goan cuisine on offer. Try the mixed seafood balchao, its simply awesome, westerners might find it a bit spicy for their palate. Also the stuffed and baked crabs are worth a try, not many restaurants serve them. If you are here from Nov to Mar, you will find many westerners on the dance floor, swaying to the music. If you fancy some breeze, sitting on a wooden deck, in a candlelight setting with sand under your feet and the gentle sea in the background, try the outdoor patio. The only time we felt a bit let down, was when we turned up past ten one night and they they told us the last order would be taken by eleven, and we had to eat in a hurry. But that was not their fault at all. So after that, we just showed up in time!!!!!

Had heard about this restaurant for sea food..The service was slow. Too many flies were all around and they couldn't do anything about it. Ordered for 2 different cocktails but were almost the same, which were served in a water glass. Had to leave one drink as all the flies were dropping in the glass.

Seating on wooden chairs wasn't comfy. Ordered seafood grill which was extremely oily.

Had heard a lot about the place and hence visited the place !
The waiter was rude ! Food was dumped on table !Had to ask for accompaniments !
The saving grace was caramel custard !
Success should not make you arrogant ! Got that feel at this outlet and I also mentioned to the manager !
