We went there considering the reviews. The place had no music on Valentine's day, it was depressing. After repeated request they played old recorded music including Chand sifarish.. Didn't wait to try the food. Disastrous.. Thankfully my gf didn't dump me

Great setup. We were there at lunch time on a weekday so it was not very crowded. We chose a variety of dishes and the Portuguese-style ones were excellent. Good sized serves and very reasonably priced. Worth several return visits to try different dishes!!

Few miles away from Margao, we found a hidden gem, "Nostalgia". The name - so is the place. Most recommended for all the Goan NRI's who long for the authentic Goan food for months, until they come for a vacation for few days in Goa. Beating all the authentic places in south goa, nostalgia offers the extreme authenticity of the... More

This place serves the authentic Goan and Portuguese dishes. Food is delicious here. All their pork dishes are lip smacking. I love their Goan pulav, beef croquet, dry prawn kismoor, pork chops etc. The place is also nicely decorated with authentic Goan things.

My colleague in Goa suggested me this place. The ambience is awesome and so is the food. Service is good and you can enjoy the old Goan relics on display. I am sure to head back there whenever I am in South Goa.

I went to this cozy restaurant tucked away in a silent corner for a company team lunch. The food was excellent and so was the ambience. We saw a great choice of buffet items, the service was awesome. The staff was very helpful

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend who lives in Goa and it was a brilliant recommendation. It struck me as a pleasant site that was filled with artefacts and memorabilia of a much loved and much missed bygone era. The food was well prepared and pleasing to the palate. The waiters were cheerful and helpful and an enjoyable... More

We were recommended this restaurant in Raia near Margao, by folks who had dined here a couple of years back, so decided to try this out for our lunch one day. We arrived quite late just after 2.40 p.m., after checking in and transferring our luggage to a resort. The staff at Nostalgia were very curt and asked us to... More

Nostalgia serves authentic Goan and Indo Portuguese cuisine served in a semi formal dining style. We have been awarded best food in our category for the last 5 years consecutively. We have a full service bar, with a range of spirits and cocktails. The ambience is representative of old Portuguese homes and decor, with indoor and al fresco seating options. We have live music 6 times a week, ranging from Karaoke and instrumental Saxophone days to retro and evergreen dancing nights. Check our facebook page Nostalgia for updates on the week's events.
