We went to this restaurant with very low expectations and reaching this quaint looking restaurant werent really sure what to expect. But the moment, we saw the menu both the tasting menu and the chefs menu we realised we are onto something special. Our server,...Dexter was amazingly knowledgeable, a trait that's so rare in most restaurants. We chose the chefs tasting menu and decided that's probably too much for one, so decided to share (a real mistake) as the portions are tiny and the whole experience was amazing. For the Starters, the chorizo cigars in that exotic wooden cigar box to the see bass in the enclosed case, there is so much attention to the little things that one is truly amazed. For the main course the mushroom Alfredo, which is such a common dish, the owner and chef abhi Martin's has taken it to another level. The Choco lava cake was good, but the homemade ice creams were to die for. In the end, they gave an extra helping of a small sampler of salted caramel and strawberry ice cream that I felt in heaven. Abhi Martin's, you are a really good chef and an excellent host. You and your restaurant will truly go places. So happy to have ended our vacation at this place.More

Ordered Tapas taster platter along with crabmeat soup and Pizza. Each dish was a signature dish with...unique taste and presentation. Chef Avinash really creates magic.

Lovely eatery in Benaulim area. We love to visit this place whenever we are at Club Mahindra in South Goa. Small menu, but appeals to both vegetarians and non vegetarians. We loved the fresh salad with melons and Feta cheese. service is also excellent.
