Very bad service. No one taking of guests or business. Always each n every thing we need to call a server. They takes more than 1 hr to serve a food. Very bad service provide. Very lazy staff. Even counter person i think as a...manager need to improve on standards. Only 2 staffs working at dinner time rush. Realy waste of money. Even tissue also we took himself from another table. Realy very bad n worst experience. Never visit again any more.More

Every year during monsoon we visit Alua Merces for worlds best authentic Goan Muddoxi or lady fish recipes esp fried whole Muddoxi and curry with steaming rice. The fish tastes just divine. The rawa fried muddoxi with the thin crust on sticky skin gives you...a particular taste. Including brain this easy to eat meaty fish occupies your full attention. For past 20 years the menu of rawa fried muddoxi and curry has not changed. The secret is good stock of freshly caught muddoxi from Honavar, Karnataka. Till end August we can taste Muddoxi.The curry is thick, aromatic, not to hot or pungent and with pieces of muddoxi in it and a dash of chopped green chillies and garcinia indica or kokkum rind it tastes so good. Mixed with rice nothing can match such a Goan meal. There is no place in Goa which serves Lady fish preparations with such ample portion and quality. AL Lua after premature demise of its owner Andrew might have lost some charm but they haven't compromised on services or quality. Just on outskirts of Panaji this simple peaceful place is best location for an icthyological Nirvana. Ideal for fish loving families. We crave to return to it every weekend and we carry a pack of rawa fried Muddoxi and curry to celebrate our Sunday. Those who are visiting Panaji, Goa must not miss the chance to enjoy one of the best fish preparations in world at Alua Merces- Authentic Goan Muddoxi curry with rawa fried Muddoxi. Also try masala fried muddoxi which is little pungent. You wont find such value for money and time at other places. Its open from 11 am to 3 pm and 7 pm to 11 pm on all days. Lady fish may be served only during July and August.More

Even after unfortunate and tragic expiry of founder Andrew DSouza, Alua Merces has retained its reputation for Goan fish recipes. It serves some of the best lady fish recipes during monsoon. But recently we tested rawa fried kingfish with kingfish curry rice. The preparation was...perfect, the fish was properly marinated and fried and the curry had the typical aromatic flavour. Very strongly recommended for the peaceful , quiet ambience, no crowding, and a place to taste some real Goan fish recipes. Please ask what is fresh and best and give second choice for prawn curry rice. The portions and the prices are too low to believe and service is perfect because the staff is same for past 15 years and know exactly what the customers annd gourmets need. Tourists visiting Goa especially from, USA, Canada, UK Must visit this.More

I made one evaluation to TripAdvisor™ about A Lua - Club Vasco da Gama. This place is 100% opposite. Great place with amazing garden inside, great food, great service. I requested one "Beef" in western type. Perfect. I don't know if this restaurant it's open...at night, but I recommend visit at lunch time to appreciate everything.More

Was here with family on 25th December night. The bands were playing retro tunes. Drinks were reasonably priced. Food was fairly good for the price tag. Overall, we had a good time. Christmas 2015 was memorable for us at A Lua Merces! Thank you, Andrew!
