“As good as I remember....”
Reviewed 9 January 2013 via mobile

We have been to the mermaid many times over the past 7 years, this was our first visit for 2 years... it was just as good if not better, the owner and all her staff are fantastic, the food brilliant and all in a very welcoming court yard... Thankyou and we look forward to our next visit.

“Brilliant Deserts”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

It is always a bit of a quandry to eat in an european style reataurant whilst holidaying in India but we thought that it makes a nice change and anyway, we often eat Indian food whilst in England so why not occasionally eat european food in India.
This restaurant is run by a very friendly couple - he is from Goa, she is from Sweden and the Fillet Steak in particular is absolutely brilliat and surprisingly affordable. The setting is quite breezy which makes it all the more enjoyable, but the piece de resistance are the deserts which shame many restaurants back in the UK. In particular, I can recommed the Lemon Merangue Pie and the Dime Bar cheesecake, I cannot recommend this reaturant enough and only wish that we had the chance to visit them again.

“Friendly restaurant”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

We had a very nice meal here twice. The waiters were friendly and helpful, the owners were talking at the tables and the food was most enjoyable. Worth a visit for a nice meal.
