Its build on an old 300 years Portuguese villa and its 25 year old restaurant. The Menu is entirely in Portuguese. Good for Non-Vegetarians. With Veg we had limited options but enjoyed food. Red Port wine is must try. Ambience was excellent.

If you don't visit this restaurant when in Baga you will be missing out. It is an authentic Portuguese experience, which if you are lucky, will find the owner singing Fado music to add to the atmosphere. Fish stew was amazing. It can be very quiet, as it clearly aims at the discerning diner, rather than the average Baga bore. Baga is Goa's Clacton. It has a wonderful climate, great food and lovely locals, but it attracts those wanting a cheap jaunt.

We came 2 years ago and fell in love with this hidden gem. And the first thing on our list to do in Goa during this years visit was to come here. It's like going back in time ... everything here is authentic and exquisite. First class Goan Portuguese cuisine, professional service ( Chris our waiter is the best ). There is no point to rush your visit ... just take your time and relax and soak in the old world charm of this place. Feels like home and if you are lucky enough you will get a chance to meet the owner Francisco and hear his beautiful and passionate fado songs. Best romantic restaurant in Goa ( perhaps in the world )

I'm quite confused here because of contrasting circumstances. Great food great location and ambience but the service was the opposite. I'm not sure whether they expected any guests and the food took hours to come to the table. However when it did come iy seemed well worth the wait. Beautiful fillet of beef, one of the best sea food stews. One of my directors had the cabbage soup which he refused to eat as it was apparently a disaster. The pigling was phenomenal but the time it took, took the mood and hunger miles away. Five stars for the ambience and location. It's a must go to place but hopefully the service will be quicker and better. But good luck finding the place as it's very well hidden. I'm definitely going back but this time eye will be solely on service as in know the rest is first class.

I have been visiting Goa for many many years and this restaurant is still wonderful.
It is just simply the best food to eat and in a beautiful setting. I recently took a group of friends and we had such a lovely evening - thank you Casa Portuguesa.
