Short description – in case u r in a hurry:
We got to know of this place from our friend Anurag. He had in fact mentioned specific dishes that we should order here. We stuck to the recommendation and also tried some other options. We walked away with a smile – ear to ear:)
The restaurant has an informal cafe kind of feel to it.
It had an outside section as well as inside seaTing. The dining hall where we were sitting had a transparent roof , thus allowing sunlight to get in.
The menu card was detailed and easy to comprehend
The serving staff were very knowledgeable and were helpful to us in selecting the dishes.
Food was excellent.
Detailed description – in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
The brilliance of this place is both in terms of conceptualising the dishes and also in the final execution.
Spicy prawn in port wine – prawns simmered in butter. Port wine gave it a mild tinge of sweetness and flavours. Red chillies gave the hotness to balance the salt and sweet. Prawns were very fresh and nice. Loved the dish. Rate it 4.5/5
Steak was recommended – We tried fillet of tenderloin brandy peppercorn sauce was too good. The steak was perfectly done.
The sauce was excellent. The mashed potato was YUMM. Everything fell in place so well. Rate it 4.5/5
Fillet of tenderloin with bleu cheese sauce was excellent as well.
We super loved the bleu cheese sauce – it went very well with the steak. Rate it 4.75/5
Serra dura – traditional Goa Portuguese dessert from condensed milk and whipped cream, topped with cookie crumble.
What a dish. Intense, creamy, perfect level of sweetness balanced by salt. A simple dish made into a marvel. Rate it 4.75/5
Caramel buttered coffee with Irish cream – it had caramel, coconut milk and Irish cream was served on the side. We loved it with the Irish cream and without it as well. It was a work of art. Rate it 4.75/5

Virgin Mojito was very good & very balanced. Rate it 4.25/5
