Fabulous drive; delectable meal in a pristine setting
Apr 2021
Palácio do Deão is a fabulous getaway from the hustle-bustle of Goa's beaches. The owners have poured their heart in keeping up this heritage property, and the delectable six-course meal goes way beyond the humble fee charged for the entire experience! The belvedere chosen for guests' dining is an unforgettable setting, and the authenticity of the food beats the best names in town. Definitely visit the place! Call up preferably a day in advance to make a reservation, because all those courses take time and lots of ingredients to prepare!

This was an exceptional lunch. Local Goan cuisine made with a lot of love. The Perch was very fresh, the local feni was delicious and the rest of the courses were sumptuous. The owner is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions about the house and locality patiently.

Overrated and overpriced
Dec 2020
The so called palace is just about ok. Wouldn't say its bad but certainly not eye popping that some reviews make it out to be. The food was definitely good and the highlight of the visit. Home made and very unique. Much different from the usual north Indian, South Indian and even Goan food you get in all restaurants. Kudos to the chef. The food quantity is a lot.
The owner is polite but can show a bit more warmth and personal touch.
Two things that really ticked me off:
1. Given the food quantity, unless you are a hogger, it is not possible to finish the food but the owner refuses to let us take it away. I found that a bit mean spirited.
2. The owner is not transparent with the charges. He doesn't mind charging on drinks willy-nilly. How about telling us first that it is chargeable ?

Overall, it is good place to visit if you like fancy food and don't mind the price tag. Otherwise, you are better off spending time elsewhere in Goa

Birthday lunch
Feb 2020 • Couples
Our 2nd visit to this beautiful old mansion, with its gardens and own paddy field.
Came for the 5 course lunch, served on the terrace, excellent Indo-Portugese food with crab, red rice (home grown), fruit mocktail etc. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff.
Recommended.

Disappointed
Feb 2020 • Couples
Poor behaviour of the key person. We had planned to see this place since some 3 months back. A day before the visit i tried calling the given number so many times to know if we need to pre-book for having lunch there. Phone was not being picked Quite a few times since he was busy, once it was picked and i was told he will call back since he is busy now. I had even left a message with my query. Neither any reply came nor any call. And on the planned date i called again to recheck, but got a massively rude response saying “we are full”. Wasn’t it their responsibility to realise that we did try connecting with them many times with the objective to book? We were not even guided properly by him. It was his fault for not responding to us on time and he blatantly refused to consider our interest in visiting them. Not being able to accommodate is one thing and talking rudely, which is so unlikely of Goa, is another thing. Goans are known to be nice and polite. Will never think of visiting this place again.

I have booked a lunch with friends there and what a beautiful time we had.
The site is exceptional.The house is amazing, restored by the actual owner.
The garden is lovely and we had lunch on the beautiful terrace surrounded by plants and flowers.
The food is absolutly delicious, homemade bread, vegetables from the garden, many different dishes cooked with passion and savoir faire.
The mocktails were very good and refreshing too (they are not included in the price of the meal).
Very warmth welcome from the owner with loads of explications about the place.very professionnal.
You can visit the entire house and make beautiful pictures.
Worth a visit if you are in Goa.

Absolutely no response from the owner
Dec 2019
Called the owner of this house on 22nd December 2019 evening to check for confirmation of 3 persons anytime between 26th December to 30th December. The host Reuben answered and FIRST checked if whether we were Goans and which part of Goa we were from. Said he would get back to us, but sadly did not get back to us. Being Goans, who are living abroad for more than 35 years we were disappointed. Socorro

Old Houses if Goa
Jan 2020 • Friends
This beautiful old home is a homage to a bygone era of Goa. The hosts, Reuben and Celia are lovely and lunch was possibly the best food I have had in Goa. Home cooking with a Portuguese Goan feel. Lots of interesting artefacts and a splendid garden are worth the visit.

Beautiful Palace reflecting the history of that place. Very kind host, who has been renovating this this Palace from the beginning and taking care of this house with all his heart. Definitely makes sense to visit this place

Amazingly restored and the best food served! Loved every bit of it. Been in Goa now 10 days and this has been our best experience. We were served a 7 course meal with an awesome local drink that made our day!
