A little difficult to find if your a first timer to Candolim but well worth looking for. A bit more upmarket than the Main Street Restaurants but the food is worth paying a little extra for a great menu, great food.

A little of the beaten track so often quieter as people stop at the mermaid first or are drawn to Sams bright lights and buzz. Do drop by it won't dissapoint

Ate here last Monday evening following recommendation by friends. The restaurant is a bit outside of the main Candolim area but is well worth the extra bit of taxi fare. The food is absolutely superb and the waiters just can't do enough to ensure that you enjoy your meal. It's slightly more expensive than the run-of-the mill but you don't... More

Food-3.5/5 Ambience- 3.5/5 Hygiene-3/5 Price- 4/5 Service-4/5 Tthis is little above average restaurant. The ambience seemed bit shady. Little too dark. And seemed like den of shady people.

Not our first visit but once again we weren't disappointed. Not only were our meals excellent but the service we received was "spot on". There was a big issue in other establishments due to the fact the government had overnight made 500/1000 rupee notes almost unusable,but the management/staff couldn't have been more helpful. Also the warm chocolate brownie, ice cream... More

Nice place inside, poor tables outside, Great view of the beach, receptive waiters but average food. We didnt have to wait to get a table unlike Brittos which was nearby. Ordered Spicy Goan Egg Curry and Rice which was sweet. Also ordered Pasta Arabiatta which was sweet as well.
