Visited this place after reading fabulous reviews on Lonely planet -so went there with too high expectations. That was a mistake! Food was ok- just ok - Nothing extra ordinary. Staff did not know much to explain about the food on the menu. AC was leaking water over our table. Would prefer the verandah seat. Good food - nothing great.... More

Very welcoming place to eat. The portion sizes were huge and such good value. The service was great with lovely staff - nothing to fault whatsoever! Would highly recommend!

I went for dinner with my friend and had the only bad/negative experience since being in India (a month long trip). Had the least helpful, negative, rude and frankly racist waiter. After he was repeatedly so rude to us we saw him with the tables next to us with white guests and he was completely different (friendly, laughing and charming)... More

I come to Panjim a couple of times per year. This is the place that gets always advised from every one...so time to time I come back to check if I am missing something..... No I am not! Food preparation and service is poor. Place has an interesting deco and atmosphere but that's all...

This is a small joint in panjim with great ambience and authentic goan food. Pork chilly fry, squids and some of chicken dishes are mouth watering.

Had a meal which was served with no joy no class...the waiters like zombies. Unbelievable crowd people were waiting outside, we were quite early and was no problem. The stuffed papads were good but fried ochra was batter fried ...portions are large and price reasonable. The portion of Caramel custard that we ordered ...looked like a big chunk placed on... More

This rather bad experience started with our arrival at a wet table and chairs (it hadn't rained). When our waiter saw us trying to dry our chairs with our own wipes, he made some noncommittal remark but never made an attempt to help us with getting a dry seat. There was quite a bit of stuff on the menu that... More

We had dinner here once. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was fine. Our dinner, however, was disappointing. We ordered the mixed seafood sizzler and the aloo gobi. The sizzler didn't have much seafood at all; it was mostly gravy and soggy french fries. We weren't much impressed by the aloo gobi either because it was a masala, but... More

Visited this place with fanily for dinner. Viva Panjim is located in Fontainhas area, which is very picturesque. Restaurant is set in one similar picturesque property, with v good taste and service. Place is little cramped though. Overall it was a good experience, we ended up taking many good pics and memories.
