Climbing the stairs to the Upper House is like stepping into a cool European restaurant, with a modern but elegant dining space overlooking the Municipal Gardens, a chic neon-lit cocktail bar and a more formal restaurant at the back. The food is very much Goan though, with regional specialities such as crab xec xec, fish curry rice and pork vindaloo prepared to a high standard at relatively high prices.

Wine is available from ₹600.
