Description: Upper House, situated in the heart of Goa’s capital city of Panjim, serves typical Goan food created with large dollops of Goan hospitality. Each dish is carefully prepared so that when you bite into your order you will be tasting the juicy crispness that only a freshly-prepared dish can provide. The restaurant has three halls. As you enter you are greeted with the more casual ambience of a cafeteria. Take a table right here if you will and if you are next to the window you can look down on the stream of traffic or the beautifully tended plants of Jardim Garcia D’Orta. Step further into the second hall and you will be met with a pub, designed such that you get the feeling of being seated in the original British one. For those who want to dine in style using silver cutlery and in a lavish atmosphere, the last hall beckons. Using silverware to cut through your dish and spoon the tasty morsels of Goan food that come hot from the kitchen into your mouths and let the food work its magic.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 3 May 2012 via mobile

We have just returned from Goa and went to The Upper House following a recommendation from our holiday rep. We went there three times during our stay. The food was outstanding and the service was superb. Lovely curries and the sizzler dishes were divine. Also make sure to have a cocktail. Best Cosmopolitan I have ever had!

“Weird music at odds with the atmosphere”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

This is a high-end restaurant with good cooking, but rather loud and very odd 70s easy-listening piped-in music followed by - a mariachi-type band? Weird! Good food. Why not play Indian music, at lower volume?

“Excellent food in a top class restaurant that wont break the bank”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

This was a return visit for us after enjoying it so much last year. The interior is really nice and if you can get a table by the window overlooking the park even better.The menu is extensive and the prices reasonable considering the quality of the restaurant. Gin & tonic 135 rupees,prawn curry with rice 255,pork vindaloo 255. Taxes added at the end! The service is excellent .The only negative is the flat screen TV on the wall which runs all the time ,all be it with the sound off.If you are facing it your eyes are drawn to it!

“Delicious Food. Excellent service. Nice location”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Walk upstairs. Take a deep breath. And enjoy one of the best meals of your trip to Goa. I enjoyed a delicious meal of SUPER SPICY & TANGY pork vindaloo and a dessert of vanilla ice cream and local pastry/cake Bebinca.
