Service was a little slow but... More

Bang opposite the old O'Coqueiro, is a nondescript gate which leads to Maracas which serves the Audi of Tapas in Goa (Audi showroom next door). Maracas can also be accessed through the Chogm Road. I've tried most of the tapas on offer but by far the best is the beef chimichuree. The sauce is outstanding. Their steaks are also way... More

Love everything I've tried here! But my favorites are the hummus with Chorizo & caramelized onions and the spinach & feta bites. Newest favorite is the bacon Aglio olio though 😍

We tried lots of tapas dishes and every one was superb. The highlights were the beef chimichurri and the crab dip. Great service and the setting feels very European/Latin.
