“Spoilt for Choice”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We returned to Goa in January for 4 weeks staying at the Marinha Dourada for the third time, and it is too easy to find yourself strolling down the road to this excellent restaurant/bar.
all the previous reviews say it all, as we have been there since it opened and have some really excellent meals and fun quiz nights.
When we arrive in Goa we often find the room is not ready, so we walk down to Nicks for a pint and lunch, only to find as we walk in we are remembered by the staff and Bob, Linda and Nick if they are on duty and greeted as though we have never been away.
Nothing is ever too much trouble to explain the menu and the food is always good and hot.
A very extensive menu, has anyone tried to go through the full menu over aperiod of time??
We are not sure yet if we are to return to Goa in 2014, but if we do, we know where we will be having some meals at Nicks.

Been to Nicks place on a number of occasions now and you are guaranteed a friendly and helpful experience. It is situated just round the corner from the MD and the woods opposite lead to the Rio, so it is an ideal spot for anyone staying at either of these hotels.
The food is freshly cooked and whether it be a cooked English breakfast, a Sunday lunch or an evening meal you will get good value in a pleasant environment.

Nicks place is great! We visited the restaurant twice when we were with a group of colleagues in Goa. Bob was our host and he's a great host!

The food was great, the service was top notch and the atmosphere was awesome :)

Absolute recommended place!
