Fabulous food & service. Had several meals here & all were excellent. The waiters were great & Fatima the owner was lovely. Even the cocktail maker came for a chat. Highly recommend this place.

This is my second year in Cavelossim. Had read reviews on Trip Advisor and figured Octima sounded good so visited last night (2nd Jan) with my wife and daughter. First impressions were good - nice location with spacious surroundings, although very quiet (not necessarily a bad thing). Downhill rapidly from there unfortunately - service comically bad (45 minutes to get first drinks - second drinks never arrived). Starter (Szechuan prawns) OK but luke warm and it took almost an hour to reach our table. Mains (2 prawn curries and a seafood sizzler) truly awful. Roti and naan were great. Really can't recommend this place, there are so many better places to eat in Cavelossim. Maybe it was the chef and owners night off?

We have visited Octima restaurant on many occasions, and never once had a bad service or meal, as other reviews say Fatima is a truly lovely lady and goes out of her way to please all the customers.
Truly lovely family who make you feel special and very welcome even if just popping in for drinks
will be going there again this year on our stay in Cavelossim
NOT TO BE MISSED

This was one of our highlights of our holiday.
Fantastic food, friendly service, beautiful surroundings.
We ate here almost every evening.
Although the food took slightly longer than usual, it was well worth the wait as it was all freshly cooked and beautifully served.
Fatima always welcomed us, but always left us to eat our meals.
When they found out that it was my birthday they greeted us with music and a cake.
If we return to Cavelossin this would be the place that we would definitely eat.
