OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and inspired by the brilliantly colored, blue songbird of the tropical forests of Central and South America, COTINGA at The Tamarind is truly a haven of peace and beauty. The restaurant is sprawled between a central courtyard that overlooks the hotel's beautiful natural garden. With a seating capacity of 50, guests have the option of dining indoors as well as al fresco. Very large TV screens make watching games so much more fun . There is an indoor and an outdoor bar serving the choicest drinks. Our fresh juices and smoothies are not to be missed. We serve special coffee, including Illy (spanish coffee)and fresh Tamarind Tea.

Felt so good to come back to Goa and to Cafe Cotinga after a year or more . Relished a great meal . Was happy to see that they have kept up their standard and quality . Had one dessert and took one home ....Both , the mango cheese cake and the apple crumble were really delicious . Will surely pass the good word around .More

Restaurant of the hotel Cafe Cotinga just have a look at the picture attached here to have an idea about the hygiene and cleanliness standards being maintained the bottles of condiments at the tables are fully covered with insects and mosquitoes. Staff here is totally...casual and careless except for one lady Ms. Priya. From 17.12.19 till 22.12.19 no one handed over the breakfast coupons to us and nobody even bothered to ask for the same. However on 22.12.19 we were suddenly stopped at the reception and were handed over the coupons when I told the receptionist that nobody has even asked us for the same since we have been staying here, very smartly the message was passed on to the other lady at the restaurant and she immediately asked us for the coupons however she was present on all the days prior to that as well and she never asked us for the breakfast coupons. Today i.e on 23.12.19 we were again not provided with any coupons however the lady was smart enough to ask us for the coupons. Guys common’ please stop doing all this nonsense just for the sake of doing it. And we are really scared after looking at the way the hygiene level is being maintained over here. We have checked out of the hotel today ie 24.12.19 at 12:00 pm and the Manager at the reception Ms. Simran had the audacity to question us as to why we have shared our review on tripadvisor she’s so sincere and efficient to convey the message of the owner Ms. Arya that every time you come and stay with us and also have some or the other complain and that if u don’t like us why are you coming to us ....that we shouldn’t be coming to the hotel if there’s something we don’t like and we have shared it, so Ms. aarya and Ms. Simran just to put it straight it was just that we were repeating our stays in the hope that the things might improve and yes rest assured we will ensure not to stay at Tamarind ever again in the future and will ensure the same for our near and dear ones as well. Kudos to your efficient team who claim that they give the best service but they don’t have any description for the best service they claim to have been providing.More

We went here for dinner on the first evening. Their tandoor was down for maintenance, which was ok, but we found the menu choices somewhat limiting. So went to another place after having a drink. They do offer a fantastically tasty range of cakes, all...baked in house. Do not miss those for sure. They are reasonably priced too!More

I stayed here for 3 days in May 2019. Cotinga was my go to place to eat. I think we ate only twice outside. I am amazed at how they have turned the humble chicken sandwich to a delicacy. must try. Loved the chicken shikampoori...& of course the desserts. they even have a vegan carrot cake. lastly, the service was impeccable. look forward to getting back soon.More
