What Makes It Awesome?

Remember the old adage which says that you’ve not really travelled to a place until you’ve had a taste of the local cuisine? It couldn’t hold true-er for Fisherman’s Wharf in Goa. With three outlets in Goa itself, at Calangute, Panjim and Cavelossim, serving a delicious spread of Goan food, let this be on your must-try restaurant list when you come to Goa.

Amongst the three outlets, Cavelossim has to be our favourite. The fact that this is where it all started adds an enduring charm to the restaurant. Add to that a dreamy location set by the banks of river Sal and prompt and friendly service, and you’re set for an evening of riverside indulgence at its finest. Set in a typical Portuguese house setting, with warm wooden interiors and cosy lights, the Fisherman’s Wharf in Cavelossim is the perfect location for a date where you want to keep it romantic yet real. Beautiful jute and cane decor adds to the rustic, amorous feel of the place and evokes an old world charm of intimate and homely. It's also the place if it happens to be your maiden tryst with rechedo, cafreal, xacuti or seafood in other traditional masalas, Fisherman's is a great starting point.

All the dishes are all recreated from recipes handed down in the typical Goan kitchen, with authentic masalas all freshly prepared. The place is synonymous with seafood lovers and serves up some of the most delectable Goan curries that you’ll have tasted. Try their fresh catch of the day, or choose from the all time favourites - the king prawn recheado, pomfret in butter garlic sauce, or try the quintessential prawn curry rice. If you’re looking to dig into the old favourites the chicken cafreal and the timeless chorizo pao never disappoint. The bebinca here along with cheese naan are an absolute must-try!

If however, you’re not a seafood fan (but are stuck in a party of one) they still got you covered. Selected dishes from Asian and North Indian cuisine, along with some Continental options are also available. We love their potato rechaedo too.

P.S. Fisherman's Wharf in Panjim has live music every evening as well.
