We came here in search of steak, and found it. The steak was cooked to perfection the veggies were interesting and all presented beautifully. The only downside was the open mike night. Was very clicky, with unnecessary reference to some of the clientele, we came...for the music and the majority was good and enjoyable with everybody joining in. Would I come again?....... yes certainly for the food.More

Had many great nights here, Simon and the staff are really chilled out, great food and music, especially when Simon put Delilah on, and the whole bar was singing with me, even though I was the only Welshman🤣. Thanks guys see you soon 🙏

The food... ooooh the food!!! I crave things you can't get here in India and chicken katsu is one of them. But I get to El Diablo and what do I see on their frankly brilliantly designed menu? ... Chicken katsu! And it's authentic and...so tasty. The cocktails are brilliant and they show films here so it's all just good stuff!More

The bar is a brilliant place to hang out with lots of live music. There is also...a great cinema with lots of brilliant films shown regularly.

Great place to eat or enjoy a cold one with a good atmosphere. El Diablo offers traditional Goan food, Asian Cuisine and Classic British dishes for the homesick traveller. Cocktail menu is good & staff are very accommodating, especially Simon. Cinema outback is really cool...& live music events are always good!More

I ate and drank extensively at El Diablo during my recent visit - everything that came out of the kitchen was executed brilliantly, from Mexican omelettes to paneer satay to steak and chips. The drinks menu is diverse and interesting - try the mango chilli...vodka shots! I also saw some excellent musicians and unexpectedly witnessed possibly the worst (but most entertaining?!) drag show of all time....The owner Simon has perfected the formula for a good night out - you'll make friends in no time in this bar. I will be back!More

We were living just next to this place, And I must say, the atmosphere and the hospitality received here by us was really heart warming and we felt like we were home in every way, just that we were giving money for food and booze...!! 😅😅😂 Just Kidding. I must say that El Diablo is a proper Asian steak house(true to it's name)that you wouldn't want to miss regardless you eat veg or non-veg, as they get serve it both with equally awesome taste. Food is amazing and the live music happening here occasionally is just too good to be true !! And atleast have to mention Diablo, the owner's dog, he's a sweetheart !! And naughty too !! All over there is no way that you're in Palolem (South Goa) and you don't just visit and have a great time at El Diablo... Just visit it and see for yourself that every word spoken above will be true and you will see yourself enjoying the food/drinks as well as the overall appeal of this beautiful place ...More

Drank here several times, but only ate here once. The food was lovely when we did but only found here at the end of our visit to Palolem. The service was good, the owner was helpful, there was an array of beers and lagers for...me and homemade gin for the wife. On certain nights they had music, friendly ambiance, all in all a nice place to have a cool pint, would recommendMore
