Description: In the sunny beach state of Goa there is a special place called Artjuna Garden Cafe and Lifestyle Shop. Established in an old portuguese house surrounded by a beautiful garden, this location has developed into a popular and trendy place.... With a large outdoor cafe, lifestyle shop, event area, workshop space and kids play ground, Artjuna is truly worth a visit. Artjuna began as a dream of Moshe and his wife Anastasia. The vision of having a special place to set up a workshop and exhibit their unique hand made leather bags, belts, pouches and jewellery designs. They created a space where they could display other art designers, as well as sit, talk and enjoy with friends and customers. In the last 10 years Moshe and Anastasia have developed a beautiful range of products for the Artjuna Lifestyle Shop. Inspired by the spirit of India, their creations into a global fusion design. The garden cafe is a lively and vibrant place with a welcoming atmosphere. Filled with mango trees and frangipani flowers, the garden grows colourful and lush. There is plenty of space to enjoy delicious and healthy food, meet up with friends, chill out and enjoy the excellent library. Artjuna is open for all day breakfast, lunch and light dinner. The food is fresh and contemporary, with a great choice of salads, sandwiches and popular dishes from the Mediterranean cuisine. Make sure you try one of our beloved coffee delights, home made cakes and tempting cookies. We hope to see you soon.

I don't know about others but felt distinctly unwelcome as a brown person. Right up till the owner. Service is fast, food is average, prices are ok I guess but the staff seem quite morose. The owner himself who came across to ask us to move tables if we're vaping, which is understandable, but general tone and tenor was quite rude given we're paying customers and had asked for permission before. Guess the wrong colour (and we were the only non-white patrons).

Dear Abhishek, I am really sorry to hear that this is the impression you got from our cafe, myself and the staff. On behalf of everybody I would like to apologize. We love and respect India and Indian people and we genuinely value the diversity of our customers. The concept of Artjuna has always been to serve as a meeting point for people of different cultural backgrounds and nationalities, "a melting pot". I would like to apologize again, if you ever find yourself in Goa, please allow me to invite you to Artjuna for a meal on the house to try to make up for the first impression. Best regards, Moshe

Lots of vegan options, wholesome place with loads of Lebanese options, decor is beautiful and lots of open places. Bit expensive though.

Many thanks for your review, dear Rishabh! We want our clients to really enjoy at Artjuna and to guarantee the best of flavour we sometimes use imported products as the ingredients which naturally affects the price of the dishes. Still we try to keep our menu within the affordable price range. We really hope to see you again!

Perfect cafe for breakfast with amazing ambience. Just sit there , relax and unwind.The cafe has the Goan vibe and feel to it. The food is delicious , organic and healthy. My friends and I had the Musseli bowl , green omelette ( must try- more like a pesto omelette) never tried before and loved it.The oats and wheat flour waffles with maple syrup were my favourite . Healthy and not too heavy at the same time. Binge on them guilt free. Also had coffee and fresh fruit juice. Everything about this cafe was great. Must try when in Goa.
