Description: The Fishermans Wharf isn’t Just a restaurant; it is the Ultimate culinary destination. Here, we blend great food, impeccable service, and a fantastic atmosphere to create the perfect dining experience for you. Since 2005, Fisherman’s Wharf Goa has captured the tastes of the multi cultural Goan Community with the best authentic Goan cuisine. The original sea food multi cuisine restaurant is located on the banks of River Sal in the South of Goa. Building on the success of the restaurant in Goa, the founder company decided to take the venture to the next level, and showcase their Brand, the Pride of Goa, to other parts of India and further. The menu offered is an ode to the jewels of the sea, cooked with zest typical of the Goan kitchen. There’s King Prawn Recheado, the spicy Prawn Balchao, Pomfret in butter garlic sauce, and the classic Goan Prawn Curry with Rice. Guests can get acquainted with the complex nuances of Xacuti, or dig into Chicken Cafreal and Goan Poi or Pao. And try out our authentic Goan dessert as one would not miss out on the freshly made bebinca. To cater to all its guests from around the world and for those who don’t count seafood as a favourite, there’s more that the Wharf serves. There are Asian favourites and Indian signatures, so you could team a Sichuan Fried Rice with Chicken Tikka if you wish. Continental and Mediterranean options make an appearance on the menu as well.

“Setting and atmosphere takes the cake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

I have known this area of Cavellosim/Mobor for quite some time now, as my wife and I had spent around 10 days in 1994 (a couple of years after our marriage). At that time this was a very quiet and deserted place and it was a struggle finding any shop or restaurant nearby other than a few big hotels.Now we do try to visit this area whenever we stay in South Goa. We have often been to Bettys Place and Mike's place but this was the first time at The Fisherman's wharf. The setting of the restaurant is very impressive. It has a nice decor with a huge bar in the middle. We were lucky to get the riverside table as we had reached early. I had booked a table on their website a few days back but for some reason the reservation had not reached them.
The place is frequented by quite a few foreigners from nearby hotels like Leela and Holiday Inn. The restaurant was fairly occupied and that adds to the atmosphere.
Sitting next to the river Sal on a nice january evening and listening to some good music (live band) with the family is something special. More special as we were celebrating my parents' 49th anniversary on that day.
We started with some mocktails, soups and Mojito. I soon shifted to scotch.We had some Beef chilli fry and butter garlic prawns for starters. Tandoori Prawns (very nice) and Chicken Xacuti were for the main course. As its a multi cuisine restaurant each of us could have the dish of their choice. My parents had Indian food while my wife and son had grilled chicken. My daughter shared the North Indian food and Chicken Xacuti.The food was decent though sea food was a bit more expensive than similarly rated restaurants. Liquor (scotch) I felt was expensive by Goa standards.
The restaurant manager Mr Tanmoy Chatterjee was very visible and made sure that everyone was comfortable.
We'll definitely go again when in South Goa next. I like places with good and lively atmosphere.

“the food is worse than at the hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I was staying with some colleagues at Holiday Inn and the organizers of our meeting proposed us a dinner at the Fisherman's Wharf. I was really disappointed! When I arrived, I noticed that the place has the same managing of the Holiday Inn, and in fact we got also the same food we had at lunch at the hotel, but with less quality and it was less good. The quality of the fish was poor. And the price was extremely expensive! You better try some of the restaurant on the beach, you will get better food and also a more romantic atmosphere!

“Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

The fishermans wharf is a little on the expensive side and that evening it smelled a little bit there but the food was still delicious. We have had Tiger Prawns and Red Snapper fillets which were grilled on char coal. It is close to the Holiday Inn (approx. 5 minutes walk).
