Though somewhat low in the charts on this site, LonelyPlanet had rated this restaurant highly, so we decided to give it a try. It was well worth the efforts, and I'm sure I'll go there again if I get a chance!
There were several international volleyball teams also stationed in the hotel (Mandovi) in connection with some Games ongoing at the time, and so it was a very jovial and noisy atmosphere, with the players watching their own games on a large screen!

Pro's:
- Old-world ambience of luxury
- Well-stocked bar
- Very curteous staff
- Excellent food quality - the dishes were simply fabulous!
- Reasonable price - for the ambience and set-up, we went in sure to get ripped on the rates, but the menu prices were a very pleasant surprise!
- We even had live music, though I think this is not a regular feature

Con's:
- Not much outdoor seating, though the view from outside overlooks the Mandovi river

Food was ok to taste, though quantity of starters were pretty less. Service was outright poor, half the time we were waiting for our waiter. We were provided with dirty cutlery, banana in Banana split was raw, boneless chicken was served with bone & the waiter forgot what was ordered.

Well, every time I've visit Goa I make sure I have either a lunch or dinner at Hotel Mandovi. Especially if you are weak in knees for Sea food. This hotel has some really awesome Fish Curry that's worth its taste.

So make sure to dine at Hotel Mandovi, I am sure'll never regret it.
