Went for lunch late and was quite crowded. Food (steaks and fish curry rice) was excellent and definitely recommended. Efficient service and fast. Limited space and crowded - guess wait will be quite high at peak times.

Had pretty good reviews and decided to try the restaurant while doing the fontainhaas area. Had local Goan fare, including seafood pulao, seafood platter, pork steak, prawn vindaloo. Food and service both were satisfactory

The best chicken cafreal I have ever had. It has an amazing flavour with the perfect blend of spices. Pair it with Goan bread or a rice dish for a soul satisfying meal.

This is a Portuguese house converted to a restaurant. The food served here is wholesome. I loved the battered fried squids, prawn pulao, and the chicken Cafreal I tried was my favourite

I love this tiny place. I come for the shrimp marsala, which is excellent. The place is like a movie set, tons of old-world charm, in a sweet and historical part of town. I come here every time I’m in Panjim.

I ordered mojito as my first drink, but the taste was very bad so after taking one sip I asked the waiter to take the drink away as I didn't like it because it tasted very bad. But at last the waiter charged me for...the drink and then when I asked him why the item wasn't discounted he said the management dont allow for the items to be discounted. This is very bad. There was no manager present on the duty.More
