Short description – in case u r in a hurry :
We read about this in a blog when searching for good eateries in agonda beach, Goa.
The restaurant has open fenced sides thru which light can come in. The seating is tables of 4
The menu card is a long list of many dishes but we kept our focus to ‘fresh catch of the day’ section.
The server boy was great. Very interactive, warm and nice – he took very good care of us.
The food was awesome
Detailed description – in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
Our server boy got us 3 things from the live section – squids, crabs and grilled king fish (surmai).
The squids were one of the best I have had in months – super fresh, buttery, super soft and just too YUMM and flavourful.
This was done in ‘butter garlic’ sauce as per the server boy. It turned out to be butter, garlic and some cheese. Rate it 4.75/5
The grilled king fish was again very fresh, juicy. It had flavours of fish in abundance.
The skin of the fish had turned crisp and was very enjoyable. Loved it. Rate it 4.75/5
The crab was again made in butter garlic sauce – same as the squids.
The crabs had softer shells than the mud crabs available in Bengal and orissa. The crab meat was sweetish and excellent to taste. Fresh, lumpy crab meat ….. Wow. Rate it 4.5/5
We then tried a seafood fried rice. This was also bursting with seafood flavor. The mixed seafood pieces were very enjoyable.
Superb to taste. The softness of the rice was a tad suboptimal – enjoyed it a lot. Rate it 4.25/5
