Joe’s River Cove

Benaulim, Goa

Great location and views in the afternoon however when it comes to the core, the food, Joe’s disappoints. The food is average and when a concern was raised about a couple of food items they didn’t seem to care.  Wanted a change from Fisherman’s Cove (they are good) and hence chose this, never again.

Garden restaurant

Colva, Goa

Very good food off the tandoor and in general the North Indian dishes. The ambience is great and the service prompt. Open air but no mosquito issue like a few restaurants around which we wanted to patronize but had to leave.  Good place to be for a North Indian meal when in Colva.

Konkani restaurant


A no frill eatery where tables were shared and people were waiting for lunch on a Thursday. A quick look and you find locals and tourists including Foreign in good numbers. The place is Goan with a lot of Malvani dishes. The Thalis seem popular, we ordered for one and the food was delicious.  Good place to be if you are not too hung up on visible hygiene!!

Restauranthesis: Annapurna, Vasco

Vasco, Goa

I have never written about Udipi restaurants as people are happy to experiment with them and they are pretty much standardized in Mumbai however when in Goa finding a good breakfast that too vegetarian can be a challenge and hence I am compelled to speak to about this Udipi called Annapurna in Vasco, about 7 kms (15 minute drive) from the Dabolim airport, it is certainly worth the commute.

Breakfast Annapurna Goa

This place is no frill sporting the standard Udipiesque layout with A/C section on the first floor. We settled on the first, a thing that impressed me that despite we being  the first in there and the place had their A/C  in full blast, smelt very fresh and were ready for service unlike many other places where the A/C  comes on when they have patrons walking in.  There was more surprise in store when the server after presenting menus came back with the newspapers for us. We thought this seldom happens in even the best of hotels!  We quickly ordered the standard south Indian fare, the food came out in no time and not exaggerating we were very pleased to have such good food. A very heavy breakfast for 3 came at Rs 400. So next time at Dabolim, you know where to go.

P.S: Please do let us know if you have anything closer. In fact we started with the Bogmalo Beach resort but were appalled by the presentation more than the selection.
