the owner Brett refused to seat us, acted smart, was discriminating and patronizing. Absolutely avoidable.

We read all the beautiful reviews on this place so we booked two nights in advance in order to check it out. We had a wonderful dinner for two. The atmosphere is lovely, Brett, the owner/waiter makes you feel like home. Highly recommend, a must visit place in Palolem

Was recommended by friends and the reviews here. Not disappointed. Excellent food, great service and nice intimate atmosphere. A lovely change from the beach restaurant fare just round the corner. We had to book almost a week in advance, so be warned. Really worth the effort though, highly recommended.

What a wonderful Gem. The food is absolutely wonderful and very well presented on the plat. The service is excellent. The owner is actually the waiter and you can tell that he likes what he is doing. The owners are English (forget all your past English food experience ...) and the service has a great English touch. I highly recommend... More

What a meal. The food was the best I have eaten in India- the chorizo-stuffed calamari was amazing but all the courses were. Brett at the front of house is friendly, warm and makes you feel like a friend not just a guest. Prices are very reasonable especially considering the quality. You just gotta go!

This was our second visit to this place and we were as happy as we were when we visited it two years back. It was exactly the same- quaint little lighted up place, excellent host (Brett) and unbelievable food. We went there without a reservation and Brett was kind enough to accommodate us. The food was amazing be it the... More

Excellent! Ourem 88 is very well run and organized. We booked a table a week in advance. It's plain to see why they are so popular. The food is absolutely to die for. We got two vegetarian options, every mouthful was divine. High quality and food made with love. Prices are slightly more expensive by palolem standards but worth every... More

My husband and I when last week, we had booked the previous week, it was our first visit and we certainly weren't disappointed. Very attentive owners, willing to explain their menu. Excellent food, all home made, large portions. Maybe a little more expensive than some in the area but most certainty value for money. We have booked again and recommend... More

Third year we've been to Ourem 88 while in Goa. If you love great, delicious, English food you must go. Also must book ahead as very popular and well deserved. Excellent service makes this friendly couples restaurant one of the best in Goa, anywhere. Pastry to die for by the way....

Well , this time we booked in well advance and we got the confirmation - Brett is cool and always there to help you and explain about menu in detail so that you understand the dish and accordingly you can pick - They have limited number of seats, so better to book in advance - This place is little pricy...

Located in a quite coconut grove just 20m behind Rococo Pelton at the southern end of Palolem beach, Ourem 88 is an intimate dining experience set in a courtyard of a traditional Goan house.

Our evening bistro menu changes weekly according to seasonal availability in the market to ensure a new & exciting experience on every visit. The restaurant has around 18 covers per night due to the capacity of the kitchen, during high season it is advisable to book in advance.
