I've been a couple of times to this beachfront restaurant and it's definitely one of the more expensive options for eating out along Palolem beach. The portion sizes are small too. I have usually gone there to listen to the live music which is great, and to have a beer. Last night the beers were not very cold which was... More

When you want a little something like home, ciarans do great Western dishes. I especially loved the vegetable lasagna. It's so good! The chips are made well also. Prices are expensive for Indian standards but nice for a treat now and again. Live music some nights which creates a fun atmosphere.

Visited twice enjoying both food and music - rather limited menu - worth booking a table can get busy

Huts amazing, gardens beautiful, staff friendly and attentive. Food best around and live music every night. We stay here every year. More expensive but worth it.

We actually stayed at Ciaran's for 2 whole weeks (in their super lovely beach huts), and I would say their restaurant is definitely one of the nicest ones on the whole of Palolem beach front (and we've been to quite a few over the last few weeks)! Food is great (whether you want Indian or are just in the mood... More

Loved the clean tables and upright chairs. I know this sounds strange but so many restaurants have lounge type chairs that mean trying to sit forward while you eat which makes my back ache. The place is clean and there are a good selection of special's. I have tried the kingfish and chips and others tried steak and tandoori half... More

We stayed in Ciarans for 3 nights in early january. The huts are fine but very over priced compared to other places in Palolem.. Food is also a bit pricey and portions are not too big. Staff are really nice though and theres free filtered water for residents.

We ate in Ciaran's twice during our stay in Palolem. We found the service very good - friendly and quick. The menu has a good selection including some Goan-Portuguese dishes and a specials board. Some dishes were pricier than other places on the beach but you get what you pay for. The chicken Xacutti was excellent, as was the fish... More

I felt the rates were a bit touristy - high on price, not on value. Their menu is quite limited too. However they do have nice interiors & great views of the sea & the beach
