“They have raised the bar!”

Nicks Cafe

what I liked best about Nicks Cafe?....
The open terrace seating with it's pretty lanterns, great recorded music, not too loud, polite service and simple elegant decor. You get the feeling they really want you to be relaxed, comfortable and happy. 
The food was average, I ordered surf and turf, terrific though the prawns were a tad too small for any impression of flavor. The roast meat was succulent and the pepper sauce was superb. My husband, who is particularly easy to please was disappointed with his tandoori chicken, he said it was slathered a bit too much with spices. The menu is vast, lots of Indian and western dishes. The terrace is supposed to be 'smoking permitted' but we were lucky no one lit up. We went for dinner, it's prettier at night.

“Great night out”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We have been using Nicks Place for a number of years and it maintains a consistently high standard of food and service. There is a good variety on the menu and the staff are always attentive and eager to please. Bob's quiz nights on a Tuesday & Friday are fun and definitely worth a visit. Finally, have to mention the spotless toilets. A rarity in Goa !!

“5 star evening meal”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We visited Nicks Place last night (Sunday 18th November 2012). On arrival the bbq chef assisted us in parking the car in the fairly small car park which was a nice touch. Entering the restaurant we were greeted by Nick and his team who showed us to a nice table for 2. Starters we had were prawn cocktail and garlic mushrooms followed by two roast beef dinners with all the trimmings, yorkshire puddings, colmans mustard etc and then followed by apple pie and custard which we shared. All the food was delicious and well presented. It is a credit to the owners, Nick, Bob and Linda and they know exactly how to run this sort of establishment. It is not our first visit to the restaurant and it certainly will not be our last. Many thanks to you all.
