Found this by just walking from The Panjim Inn town. Looked ok. Popped in and had a really top notch squid masala. Couple of beers, good service in a relaxed atmosphere.

So unbelievably bad! I find it hard to believe that anyone could have found the standard of food here acceptable. We were served under-cooked chicken on a plate with scraps of salad and less that ten Luke-warm chips. We had to return one of the bottled beers as it was flat (passed its sell by date?). After pulling apart the... More

We by chance walked into here only because the restaurant nearby which we had wished to go to was full - and we had a hungry preschooler on hand. We ordered the clams, tongue, chicken livers.. All was freshly cooked. The staff and chef were friendly and attentive. It was almost as if we had stepped into someone's house for... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, and seeing the reviews, we went for lunch. It is a small place, and difficult to accommodate a medium size group on a table. It comprises of two small rooms. The front one purportedly air-conditioned with just one A/C at ground level, so there is no cooling whatsoever. The rear room is non A/C.... More

That was probably the best meal we had during our 5-day stay in Panjim. Being Brazilian/Portuguese, I was craving the local food. The setting is very nice, a warm and welcoming restaurant (we love cloth napkins!). Service very consistent and attentive. We ordered delicious iscas de galinhas (chicken liver) which were very tasty, and pão com chouriço. The caldo verde... More

We loved our meal! The owner is originally from Sintra in Portugal and married an Indian. They have been here for 30 years and he has mastered the art of cooking delicious meals! My wife loved the chicken liver while I enjoyed a piri piri chicken. Our kids had 2 classic soups and we all shared several desserts. Service was... More

In went looking for Horse Shoe since I'd heard they had good Portuguese food. Here the address is listed as 'next to Bank of India, Mala' but when you ask around, no one knows, maybe the bank moved. Horse Shoe is at E-245 Rua de Ourem, the road that runs along the Ourem creek. It is near the Old Patto... More
