Lonely Planet review
Fans of Goan seafood and vegetarians alike can rejoice in the food at this relatively new spot specialising in home-style regional dishes. Local favourites such as crab xec xec (cooked in roasted coconut gravy), pork vindahlo and fish-curry-rice are done the old-fashioned way (the latter even comes with salt-water mango pickle, rarely found outside Goan mothers’ kitchens). The restaurant is on the 1st floor of the building looking out onto the Municipal Gardens.
