What a wonderful place filled with old world articles and kitchen utensils Food was great too, and live artist to entertain. Had a great time. Make sure you have your own transportation, as its little village and finding auto/taxi late in night is a challenge

The name of the restaurant actually is "Chef Fernando's Nostalgia." Since the normally very dependable Google Maps could not get us there we had to ask around and few people knew about the place. Once we got there the location proved to be quite nice...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.
