Ten-Second Takeaway

So you have planned that perfect trip to Goa with your significant other. Maybe it is your anniversary, or their birthday, or you are planning to propose or just simply celebrate life together, and need the perfect place to do it. Check out these five places that we believe are the best in Goa and you will enjoy a beautiful candlelight dinner here.

Fort Tiracol Heritage Hotel

Located at the northernmost tip of Goa, perched royally on a hill lies the Tiracol Fort which is now also a Heritage Hotel. With expansive views of the Tiracol River meeting the Arabian Sea, dolphins jumping around on the horizon, beautiful villages that dot the landscape and glorious sunsets, all of it is on offer at their lovely restaurant on the terrace. Definitely call and book in advance a cozy table for two overlooking the sea and you are all set. This has to be one of the most romantic places in Goa and of course their delectable food curated by the guys behind Sublime & Elevar restaurants and a bottle of wine will definitely give you loads of brownie points. Best part, it is open throughout the year.

Go With The Flow

Located at the point where the Baga Creek meets the sea, this restaurant is housed in a beautifully restored Portuguese mansion. With mesmerizing views of the beach from their beautiful garden seating or in the verandah of the mansion, this definitely becomes a great spot for that romantic evening. Add to it their warm hospitality and the handsome South African chef who cooks up some lip-smacking food, this restaurant is sure to leave even cupid in love with it.

The Fisherman's Wharf

The original Fisherman’s Wharf located in South Goa is another restaurant with an amazing seaside location. Their soothing music, and the occasional live band means a love song request can be accommodated if you want to do a slow waltz together. Or then just enjoy their fabulous food, while sipping on some potent cocktails and watching the view holding hands, whilst they pamper you.

Riverside - The Leela Hotel

Though not by the sea, this restaurant overlooks the Sal river and is a dreamy setting for couples. It serves the finest Italian food, and has an extensive wine list which will all but make you believe that you are sitting in Venice. So go ahead, book a table overlooking the river and get ready to be swayed.

Private Candlelight Dinner on the Backwaters

Yes, you read it right- you can book a Shikara-style romantic and luxurious yacht made to cater for just two whilst you sail down the backwaters of Goa. So experience an amazing night under the stars, with a cool breeze that will make cuddling up even better while you enjoy a glass of wine and a fantastic customized dinner over a span of 2 hours. With some soft music in the background, and no one else but the two of you and of course the staff, this will definitely make it a night to remember. Of course they do not operate during the monsoon months. You can check out BoatGoaGoBananas & BoatParty too for multiple options.
