“Great atmosphere and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I liked the place very much . It has got a old Portuguese theme to the decor . Meal was wholesome for us. Try the Fish curry with Rice .

they do not have Credit card facility , hence the host took me on his bike to nearby ATM.

“Goan Cuisine Portugal style!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Came here after reading the rave reviews on TripAdvisor and boy I was in for a pleasant surprise!
This quaint place is located in the narrow lanes of Panjim and is modelled on the old Portuguese Goan style. The ambiance takes you back in time. Superb!
The staff consisting of the owner and his nephew were very polite and graciously kind enough to suggest some excellent food and drinks.

We ordered:
Vegetable Stir Fry - Pretty good vegetable mix-up to begin.
Garlic Butter Bread - By far, the best Garlic Bread I've had in my life. It was made authentically with the Pao bread gently fried with butter and garlic pieces.
Stuffed Crab - Wow! It was excellent, nicely mixed up with cheese and herbs.
Golden Fried Prawns - Nicely made. Pretty good!
Daiquiri - This homemade drink was fabulous! Must try!
Fried Banana with Caramel and Ice Cream - Another local delicacy worth ordering!

The total damages for these were Rs. 1900, which is the on the higher side, but the ambiance and food totally deserved it!
Do not miss this place if you're in Panjim!

“Undiminished Quality of Goan & Portugese Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Luis Anton is known to be a good host, but a "greater" restaurateur offering year-after-year of undiminished quality and taste. The restaurant on the first floor of a building half-way down a narrow lane inside Panjim town adds to the mistique!!

“Great meal and people-watching balconies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014

The staff here were REALLY lovely and helped as much as possible but were admittedly very slow to serve. But, you're on holiday right so what's the rush? The Goan fish and chips I got seems sparse at first sight but were delicious and filling so don't be fouled into thinking you weren't served enough. Great lassis and fresh fruit juices. The teeny tiny balconies catch a really refreshing, afternoon cool breeze and are fantastic spots for people watching into the evening. Prices are a bit higher now than they used to be apparently but is still super cheap when you convert back to virtually any other currency in the world. I liked it.
