Normally, Goa is all about beaches, romance, group holidays (thanks to Dil Chahta Hai), but it also has more to offer, namely, great eateries and yummy grub. They obviously have the best seafood spots, but there’s also a lot more to offer. Which is why we decided to put a list together for all the hardcore foodies in Goa.
When In Goa, These Are The 5 Restaurants Every Foodie Must Hit Up
This place has a lot more to offer other than just the view of the sea, like their stuffed mushroom, seafood platter and Tagetalli pasta. They have limited option in mocktails, and you should either have their alcohol or the fresh lime soda if you’re trying to survive the heat. To make your meal experience more delicious, finish your meal with their tiramisu, which is a personal favourite. Important Note: They don’t accept cards!! So, make sure you carry cash.
This place has a Goan charm to it with authentic Goan music playing in the background and a live music counter. It is a multicuisine restaurant, which is why you’d find everything from Goan to North Indian to Chinese and Italian food. If you are vegetarian then you should try the butter garlic mushroom and in non-veg, you can have the Goan masala fried prawns or squids. Their caramel custard is a must-have.
As the name suggests, this place is every seafood lovers paradise. I would recommend you to go early to this place so that you get a place to sit, otherwise, you will have to wait for another 1 hour. This place offers the best fish thali and, trust me, you’d be left wanting more. Vegetarians, don’t be disappointed, they do also serve some great veg food.
Fisherman's Wharf in Panjim
The location of the eatery is great with nice and cozy indoor and outdoor seating. An old Portuguese house has been converted into the restaurant. Now coming to the food, it is one of the best places for seafood and they serve delicious Goan cuisine here. End your lunch with the Goan dessert called Bebinca, which is delicious.
This place came out to be a true hidden gem in Goa. Saraya gives you a lot of variety of vegetarian fresh wood-fired pizzas. The idea of adding arugula (salad rocket) and feta on a pizza is awesome and we were left awestruck. What’s most amazing about them is that you can carry and have our own liquor here. You must have Saraya’s special pizza and the three cheese pizza. The pizzas are served on a leaf plate, and they grow their own vegetables and herbs, so the pizzas are made using homegrown ingredients.
