Went to MA to bring in my son s birthday ! This restaurant has not changed in the last so many years that we celebrate birthdays here!

I wasnt staying at the Taj, just visited for a meal. I was wrongly directly to the floor below by an employee, until somebody redirected me. This restaurant is at lobby level. Ambience, appearance and price is what you would expect from a five (or more) star hotel. I was served a small glass of mango juice on seating myself.... More

A restaurant in Goa which is lavish and hence not crowded at all - yet everything is available! A good place to relax, indulge yourself and enjoy the garden & sea-views. Kitchen is open .. you can interact with the chef. We had Basil Pesto Pasta which was awesome! Pizzas were also very nicely cooked.

I used to worked in Taj exotica long back. This is the best fine dine restaurant in Goa. Service is too good & pizza you will die for.

We have stayed at Exotica Goa twice at year-ends now and have always enjoyed the food and service @ Miguel Arcanjo. The wait staff is some of the most well informed professionals that I have seen.

We ate at this restaurant regularly when we stayed at the Taj Exotica and recently when we stayed elsewhere but came to grab a meal. On all occasions I found it occupied sparsely which could be strange as it serves excellent food and I can think of only 2 reasons for the same - a) People come to Goa to... More

It has a few tables with views of the sea. The quality and quantity of the food is also great. Their pizza and pasta's are very nice and the usual attentive service is a... More
