A great place and the food was amazing. Just try anything, I bet you it wont be disappointing. The colors are great, the service is great. Their "ketchup with burgers" is amongst the best. Will definitely re-visit.

The meaning of 'Dar' is home and we want TAMARIN to feel relaxed - just like home - whether dining or enjoying a light lunch or cocktail. TAMARIN offers dual cuisine's. Their award winning Mediterranean menu, encompasses the entire region from Southern Europe, The Middle East & North Africa with a very eclectic menu. TAMARIN also offer authentic Kashmiri Wazwaan dishes that cannot be found elsewhere in Goa. We have a passion for home cooking and produce almost all of our food on site, including bread, baked goods, yogurt and much more. We endeavour to source the freshest of local ingredients, only opting for imports when the local produce just won't do! A wide range of both India and Mediterranean wines are also available. TAMARIN have introduced a gourmet 'Deli 2 Go' offer so that you can enjoy their cuisine at home or at the beach. The offer includes homemade breads, pastries, cakes, sandwiches, salads, plus a select retail offer from some of Goa & India's finest gourmet producers.
