Short description- in case u r in a hurry:
When we planned to go to Goa, two of our foodie friends , aalok and anurag independently suggested this place. So we went there with great hopes.
After we entered, I realized I have been here with my work colleagues and had loved this place.
The restaurant is situated in a beautiful old restored building. Interiors maintain the heritage very well.
They had a comprehensive coffee menu. Very interesting.
Service was very good.
Food was lovely – As good as we remembered from our earlier visit.
Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:
Fish cakes full flavours of fish, flakes of fish evident, spices and chillies made their present felt.
Beautifully balanced. Rate it 4.25/5
Prawn plancha was very nice. It had full bodied flavours of fresh prawns.
The prawns were served with head and limbs – that let the chef to pump in more prawn flavours into the dish. Rate it 4.5/5
Red kishmoor fish was served on a bed of lettuce – lovely salad to munch on.
For the uninitiated, kishmoor is a local Goan dish made from dried mini prawns. Kishmoor accentuated the taste and flavours of the dish. The fish was very nice and flaky. Rate the dish 4.5/5
For dessert we had Layered pistachio kheer. Very unique in concept and presentation I wud say.
The kheer was thick and intense to taste. Kheer was placed in between crisp caramelised layers. To balance the sweet there was a sour cream with loads of pistachio on them. Loved it. Rate it 4.25/5
Overall rating of food here averages out to 4.3/5
Will hv to revisit many more times to explore the full menu which has a lot of creative dishes
