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.
