A really great place to stop for a while and enjoy some traditional Goan specialities.... Goan Fish curry rice is better than I have tried anywhere and the desserts of bebinca and Serradura are delicious. It's a beautiful place with lots of character and family run. It is an essential part of any trip to Panjim. Thank you

The food isn't good and to expensive for the quality. The pork and the tuna to dry and other things. The decoration is very beautiful and modern a good place to chill but not to eat. All the employees are very kind.

A short walk from the Goa court in Panjim this is my all time favourite in Panjim! On the first floor, in a by-lane, warmly lit and great service with awesome food and drink. What else? The balcao seating is cool for a single or a very slim couple! The eve sea breeze brings a smile on the face. Todays'... More

This place has a really attractive feel to it. Unusual quaint balconies with street views or there are more roomy tables inside. Really helpful and friendly staff. We had butter garlic prawns and Portuguese style fish, both of which were gorgeous and reasonably priced, as were the drinks. Highly recommended!

Venite is located in the old quarters of Panjin in a narrow alley opp Subway. It isnt easy to spot and the restaurant is on the 1st floor. The building has its own character, as you walk up the creaking stairway. The place is beautifully done, superb wall art bordering in your face. The bar section is separate from the... More

The food is poor for the price they sell it. Only the ambiance is good with a rustic charm. Went there based on the reviews, however totally disappointed with the quality of food here.
