Reviewed 27 September 2019

Had read about this place on our last visit, and highlighted it as a must-do when we next came. Since we were staying in Fontainhas it was an easy walk through the Quarter to the little lane. The restaurant was a real find: we chose...the indoors which was spacious, tastefully set up with polished wood tables and chairs and amazing nostalgia-evoking posters on the walls. The service was good without being overly intrusive, and the server (forget his name unfortunately, but he said he was from Manipur) steered us towards a very good starter: succulent bacon-wrapped prawns. The toasted bread topped with garlic pesto sauce was good too. We had the Day's Special which was Lamb Chops, which came with mashed potato and sauteed veggies, along with a delicate mustard sauce,. Both the Mains and the dessert (chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream), washed down with generous pours of red wine, made for a very satisfying meal. We were mulling over our next visit, and coming with friends, when we learned that this was the restaurant's last month! Apparently it's set to open in a new location but we weren't able to get more details. I hope it reopens soon, and that the new location is not too far from the old one.More

Recently visited this restaurant I have been several times before as well and have always had a good experience! But this time around I was ever so slightly disappointed ! We ordered some chicken wings which the sauce was excellent but the chicken was def...frozen it didn’t taste fresh at all! And also ordered for truffle fries now when you read truffle fries you except truffle fries and not fries with a dash of truffle oil! So I wasn’t really happy with that either! The steak was good nonetheless! And so was my Bloody Mary it was extremely good! The other disappointing thing was to see rats running around the area! I know it’s an open garden space there.. but they need to set up rat traps or something! Cause that is a def big NO NO for me!More

Ambience is beautiful, staff very attentive but what irked me is that the servings are small. I am not sure whether Rs.1500 per person for a drink and a main course is your average budget but the portions were so small that I came home...and snacked on ice cream. The mains were tasty but were served with the smallest portions of salad and potato mash or fries. The only upside: my American friend was happy that she got her first rare steak in Goa.More

So a very special female friend and myself visited the place on Thursday afternoon. The layout is splendid and has an option to sit in as well as out. What caught my eye is the fact, that they had various frames of famous personalities and...quotes. We started off by ordering sangria, both white wine and red, as opposed to scotch or beer which I would have on the regular. But since I was in the presence of a female, decided to bring our the feminine side of me. Despite the apples being diced real fine and the perfect orange peel submerged in it, it didn't live up to expectations. The chicken satay, having a bourbon tinge to it was really yum. It was accompanied by just the right sauce. The show stealer had to be the shrimps wrapped with bacon. Fried to absolute perfection. We then managed to share a margarita pizza, which was simple yet authentic due to its thin crust. We wrapped up by splitting a chocolate budino, which was moist at the outside and filled with chocolate sauce which burst out. This was a bit of heaven in the mouth. The staff was real friendly and service quick. The manager himself made it a point to visit the table and ask for feedback which was a nice gesture knowing that it was empty on a Thursday noon. I would definitely recommend this place and visit it again, though it was slightly on the higher price. Barrels and bones definitely lived up to the hype it has created in the city.More

One of the better steak and grill houses in Panjim with a lovely chilled out ambience. It’s located in the heritage precinct of Fontainhas so the area is peaceful and tranquil. Parking is sometimes a hassle because of the narrow streets. We tried the chicken...sizzler and a chicken steak. Both were good if a bit on the pricier side.More
