Nothing special. More expensive than other places in Candolim & not as nice. Ruined even more when they wouldn't accept a 2000 note with a pencil marking, yet gave me change with pen writing on it!! They argued that writing on any other note is ok! Clearly taking advantage of the English again. Just to add live music advertised but... More

we were a bit hesitant of this restaurant and not sure why, but once inside and ordered, ate and drunk we had a great meal and visited another 3 times whilst in Goa, good value for money, some nights there is entertainment (worth the laugh) the menu had a wide variety of different dishes including european & indian.

Food nothing special, lively bar with music. Very much in my opinion a place to have a drink. Although bar closing early for elections didn't help.

Most nights they have music and a buoyant bar. Food is as good as most places in Goa but the music and dancing on the stage make it a decent night out.

We went here for dinner and this restaurant definitely frustrated us a little bit. Our orer took more than 45 minutes and to top it up, it was not complete for which we waited for another 20 minutes with multiple reminders to waiters for the same. The food was not bad (definitely not worth the wait) . We ordered butter... More

Amidst the numerous restaurants on the main road from Candolim to Baga, this joint is very popular and a great hangout place for couples and families. It has live music playing every night and an excellent range of continental dishes as also sea food. Together with a stocked bar, it is a good place for spending a memorable evening in... More

We ate here a couple of times during our stay and food was great on both occasions. Staff also work at Santana Beach resort so we knew the quality would be good and it was. Tested the wine which arrived nice and cold and was very pleasant. Food was all well presented and we had a variety of Indian /Goan... More
