We'd been there several times over the years and found the food very nice but as the breeze seldom blows from south to north it was always still, sultry and just too hot to eat evening meals comfortably. This year it seems to have been over taken by something called maybe...Green Yoga? Could get to the restaurant if it indeed... More

The food is also very good, had a couple of misses with some rares coming medium and some rares coming under cooked but this is over 6 months of eating there, still this drops it to a... More

Not sure why some complain about this restaurant. The fish we had was delicious, the vegetables perfectly cooked (not overdone, just the right balance of tenderness and crunchiness). The view of Patnem beaches night lights was beautiful, the atmosphere was pleasant, as was the waiter. The music wasn't overbearing as it is in so many restaurants in Patnem and Palolem,... More

This hidden gem came to us by a flyer on the beach. Away from the main beach in amongst the local seafront homes this restaurant offers a range of food without any spicy content. We opted for the steak. It was the tenderness and tasty steak that we have had in a long time. The host was very friendly and... More

I've been to Patnem for 4 years in a row now and the "Hidden Gourmet" was always on my list for an outstanding dinner experience. I really can not understand why there are so many bad reviews for this excellent restaurant. I nearly tried all the dishes on the menu (i've been there many times)and there never was one thing...

The hidden gourmet is one of the most beautiful places in goa. The food is excellent and the service is the best I know in patnem. Every time I am in patnem, I indulge myself in a dinner at this delicious restaurant.

The food here is truly gross. My boyfriend and I paid quite a sum for two meals here. Our fish was overcooked and the "jus" was burnt and tasted only of cheap wine. The only thing on the plate that was edible was the potatoes.

Situated in a hidden grove at the very end of the beach, the Hidden Gourmet stands out from other nearby restaurants with its slightly different interiors, its higher price and, at first glance, ambitious menu. While I'm always a bit wary towards restaurants serving ambitious continental food in locations where constant power failures makes proper refrigeration an impossibility, on my... More
