This place is a must visit for people who love Goan and the erstwhile Portuguese Goan cuisine. The dishes are well prepared and the prices are very reasonable.

The walls are full of history and art created by visitors of this place. The place has a very old world feel about it

Read about this place in a listing of Goan restaurants and this was rated 1. Its a lovely place in terms of ambience, quaint little windows with two seater sit outs, grafittis and wall art- you can definitely hand out here... we went on a rainy day and it was even better.

Food is good, but not great. The goan pork sausages were great, bibinca was good but ice cream average. Fried rice, pork pulao were average.

Its a bit difficult to locate, so try to get it on google maps.

Cannot rate the food since we only had drinks there. But it has mega cute appeal with the little balcony table. But be warned if you are very tall or even a little stout you will have a hard time squeezing yourself into that little hobbit-sized balcony. But if you do manage then you have a lovely view of the little street it's on. And its very intimate and cute. If you cannot fit in that balcony you can always choose a normal inside table. We wanted to go back and try the food but alas, it was closed on a Sunday.

Definately one of the best restaurants in Panjim. The restaurant takes u back in time, giving u a old feeling of the Portuguese times in Goa. It shows us the Culture/heritage of the Goan - Portuguese. The Goan - Portuguese dishes are well prepared (just how we Goans Prepared em at home). I also like their steaks. Must visit..

You are very unlikely to spot this place unless you were going into each alley in Panaji although its tucked in a narrow street just behind the GPO right at the heart of Panaji. It has a charm of its own. A bit unkempt, a bit wild but generally neat.The graffiti room is a bit tacky. The food is nothing to die for but decent. However the service is very personal and pleasant. The chairs on the balcony is a good place to laze and watch Goan life.
