Viva Goa is just around the bend from the front gates of the Ramada Caravela Beach Resort. The food is very tasty and is freshly cooked, so expect to wait 15-20 mins for the dish to reach your table. The wait is worth it! Ask for the catch of the day. The decor is very simple. The staff are extremely... More

The Staff/owners were from West Bengal and food was so tasty Can recommend the Handi Chicken, Shaslick and the Dal Fry. This was the only one open in April 2012, so we went four times in one week! Finish your meal with Honey Bee Brandy - 50p for a measure that's bigger than a double!

This is a good restaurant just down the road pass the bend from the front gates of the Ramda. It is owned by a charming Indian family but run by two lovely lads called Rupert and Diepak. It is not the best looking restaurant being a little dimly lit but the food is tasty especially the tandoori dishes. Viva Goa... More

Description
This is a really good restaurant located near to the Ramada Caravela hotel just down from the entrance gates on the corner of the bend. Its owned by a charming indian family but the restaurant is run by two lovely lads called Rupert and Diepak. Its not the best looking place being a little dimly lit but the food is good especially the tandoori dishes and the service excellent. If there is something you want and its not on the menu its worth asking for as usually they can make it. VG also hires out mopeds. I am not a rider but they looked to be in fairly good condition so worth a visit to check them out.
