My boyfriend & I visited this cozy woody nook on Saturday the (4th of June) for lunch. Entailed under are all the details of our experience.
Ambience: The interiors are all made of wood. The seating area is very cozy and the bar area is considerably refined. The lighting was beautiful. Dim lights to promote a romantic ambience backed by soothing country music from the 80’s. This is not a anything like a pub, just a restaurant providing a relaxed Portuguese Styled ambience. It was unique, classy and yet warm
Service: We were attended to immediately with smiles and warm welcoming gestures. The waiters checked if we appreciated our food, they suggested meals to us based on our palate preferences and they are all well spoken (we spoke to 5 different waiters as a shift changed occurred at 3p.m. amongst the team)
Food Quality: We ordered for Garlic Bread, Calamiri rings, Chicken Harissa, Chicken Lasagna and Stuffed Chicken with Grilled Balsamic Veggies served with the most delicious white sauce ever! The quality of food cannot be underestimated in this place. The Calamiri rings (Served with a spicy sauce) and the Chicken with Grilled veggies were are favorites amongst everything we ordered. We even had a drought beer (500ml) called for that was served in a kingsize beer mug and we shared it. The meats were cooked perfectly and I must admit, I’ve not found calamari rings taste this great even in Goa! The Bread however, they could have applied some more butter/cheese to make sure it wouldn’t get hard soon; but the other dishes made up for their tiny booboo.
Food Quantity: The Calamari rings shocked us! They were over flowing in that oval like dish they served us in. The Chicken Harissa had only 4 Chicken Sticks served on a bed of onions, lettuce and lemon slices. They should increase the quantity to 6 sticks as the dish is comparatively expensive to the rest of the starters. They served us 4 pieces of Garlic Bread that unfortunately dried and got crisp within 7 – 8 minutes. The Lasagna was ridiculously a poor serving. They need to be generous with their portions if they would like their customers to be generous with tips. It was a veg lasagna that the waiter offered to tailor make & convert it to a chicken lasagna hoping we’d be happy. The gesture was kind in deed but the quantity didn’t match up.
Food Pricing: Inclusive of taxes, the total we paid here was 1653/- The beer was 345/- (Expensive!) the Garlic Bread was 120/- (Phew!) the Calamari Rings were 195/- (VFM!) The Chicken Harissa was 290/- (Increase Portions!), The Stuffed Chicken with Grilled Balsamic Veggies was 350/- (VFM!) and the Chicken tailor made Lasagna was 355/- (Ridiculously Poor Serving)
Suggestion: Match your quantity of food with the costing of your dishes. Update the Menu on Burrp. Everything else is a Thumbs up!
