We have seen this bar/restaurant develop over the years into a jolly spot which does cater unashamedly for the British/Irish tourists - particularly long-staying single men; but does so with respect for locals and Pete is clearly training up a team of youngsters. The quiz...on Thursdays drew us in, and we heard about the pies! We tried and they went straight on to a "must have" list - but be warned they are big, and we oldies have to share! The steak and ale has a delicious rich and tender filling which is in skillfully-made shortcrust moulded double-crust in a basin for turning out and serving with frozen peas and optional mash! Truly gorgeous - and as others have said would be a hit in an olde-worlde British pub! Pete can cook, and the others are learning fast! The steaks and pizze have also many fans, but our other find was Friday Fish and Chips, using local kingfish fillets in a light crunchy batter.Great chips, too! Close your ears to the appalling language of the regulars and give this venture a try!More

Located just off the beach in the Ourem area of Palolem, Royal Italy has the best pizzas in Palolem ( we tried them all!) The burgers also are spot on! With their fish & chips Friday's, a packed out funk night, Sunday roasts..quiz nights.. etc...we found ourselves spending most of our holiday there!More

One of my favourite places to eat and go for a drink in Goa! Staff are lovely and accommodating - always making sure your satisfied. All of the food is amazing and there’s a big range from Indian, Italian (the freshly made pizzas are to...die for!) they also do a range of vegetarian food (the bean burger is really good served with the best chips in goa in my opinion). On a Friday you can have fish and chips and they also bake pies and on a Sunday you can have a roast dinner or but roast if you’re vegetarian. It’s also the perfect place for a drink, whether you’re in the mood for a chilled one or a bit of a boozy fun nightMore

We have tried different pizza places in the Palolem-Patnem area, this is no doubt the best. The pizzas are excellent, light, crispy and tasty. The service is friendly and fast. And the atmosphere is relaxed and cool not trying to imitate an Italian restaurant, which...is a blessing, at least to us.More

I agree with previous reviews about not being sure about whether to eat here. We’ve had drinks here before now but not food. You can see pizza’s being cooked fresh to order which is why I chose the vegetarian option. My partner now missing English...grub opted for the steak pie. We had to wait a while as the place was so busy, but again that is a good sign. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his meal and I think my pizza was as good if not better than the one I had at Magic Italy earlier in week. I would definitely recommend this place not only for drinks which are at a good price but now the food. Staff very accommodating checking to make sure we were happy with our food.More

First impressions... doesn’t look too great .... HOWEVER... this place is AMAZING! I dubbed it “weatherspoons” on first impressions... cheap beer, drunk brits... (I have to include myself) but it is a FABULOUS PLACE... the staff are lovely... the food is to die for! The...menu is very small... that is great as they seem to do everything very well!!! Only had the burger so far.... hand cut chips... the burger it’s self is delicious... up there with the best I have had... juicy and cooked perfectly (medium rare) pizzas look great... not had one yet, but from a proper wood fired oven! The home made pies look amazing too!!! Open kitchen! Don’t let the first impressions put you off.... great place! Quiz on a Thursday too! .... be prepared to lose... there are some serious contenders! 😀More
