First, It's important to note that this restaurant has moved to Benaulim Beach, which is about 20 minutes drive south of Majorda (the restaurant's website confirms it). The fact that no recent reviews mentioned this should have been a warning.
Second, I will say that the food is very nice. And now that it's on the beach, the view would be lovely, if you went at or before sunset.
However, the food isn't special, considering that food, even western food, is generally pretty good in Goa, and even beach shacks do good stuff. Also, the service was disappointing from a restaurant advertising itself as a step above the rest. The boys taking the orders had limited English skills--it may have been that they were being trained, but without supervision. I ordered the "signature steak" and wasn't asked how I wanted it cooked, so I volunteered the info and it was clear the waiter had no idea what I was talking about. And the steak was not cooked to order. The food took a long time to come to table in a virtually empty restaurant. After my dishes were cleared, there were 5 staff standing around the bar, but not one thought to ask me if I wanted anything else, or the bill (note that I was dining alone, so it wasn't like I was engrossed in conversation with someone). I finally flagged a boy down to say I wanted to order desert (I wasn't satisfied by my dinner).
He brought me the menu and stood silently and waited. I ordered the first chocolate cake on the menu. After waiting 20 minutes, I decided to cancel my order and demand the bill, It took another 5 minutes to get someone's attention (a large party had entered) and finally the manager came and said my cake was almost ready and that since it was made to order, it took 20 minutes to prepare. When I looked surprised, he apologized for his staff not informing me when I ordered.
When the cake finally came, it was delicious, but not worth the wait, or the price--it was 3 bites of cake, a plate full of fondant sauce and a small scoop of ice cream.
I also think the prices are too high. Jamies Colva which is on the Colva Beach Rd has food that is just as good—perhaps even better—more sophisticated decor and menu, and much more skilled staff—and much lower prices. Yes, Fusion is on the beach, which is more pleasant than a high traffic beach road, but when you are in Goa, you eat lunch everyday on the beach at the economical beach shacks. This
Food is good. Value is questionable. If you aren't staying in Benaulim Beach, it's not worth the trip to the place.
