In the heart of ‘Holiday Street’ in Calangute lies A Reverie, the brainchild of Aakritee and Virendra. Enter the long hallway to a world of phantasmagoric experiences and ‘spirited’ food that will tantalise one’s palate. Stand in amazement at the ‘dreamer’ suspended atop the bar, mixing eclectic cocktails. Tell the barman for your preference and he will create something tailor-made just for you. The Tapas menu is a jubilee of excitement. Try the 'Birds and the Bees' a chicken wings preparation and the 'Lord Of The Rings Calamari' in a double adaptation. Inspiration and focus on seasonal ingredients dominate the ethos of the menu hence ever changing to something fresh and new with every visit. Pairings are great and skillfully crafted with a dedicated wine library.
Absolutely loved it here!!! The food was amazing and would come back in a heartbeat! We came with a large group. Ordered entrees, mains and desserts and everyone was raving about it for days. It's a big pricey, but don't let that put you off because it's worth every penny!
We visited twice during our stay in Goa. This is high end dining, brilliant service, wonderful food and amazing cocktails. As another reviewer has stated although this is a fine dining experience the serving sizes are quote substantial (all the more so because the food is so rich and flavoursome). As an example we chose 9 tapas style sharing dishes between four people and had two cocktails each and the cost was around $250 AUD. We commented that a meal like this back in Melbourne would have been nearly $400. The food at A Reverie is as good as any top end restaurant I've ever been too. I'm not a dessert person but the "Eggs but not eggs" is must do dessert. Highly recommended!
We had such a nice dinner at A Reverie that I would go as far as to say that it is our favourite restaurant in Goa, if not the world! The restaurant had a perfect ambiance with a live musician playing acoustic covers and the food is both inventive and delicious - from chicken lollipops on trees to beef hanging from washing lines. It is the definition of quirky! Gen and Owen
Visited for dinner. Restaurant has a nice setting and ambience overall. On arrival you enter through a bit of a tunnel and then turn right into the restaurant area and the toilets are immediately to your left. We were greeted by the sound of somebody coughing up their guts or being sick. This did not seem to bother the lady who proceeded to show us to our table. Overall I fould the staff less freindly and/or helpful than any of the other restaurants we have visited with the whole experience being a bit pretentious. The starters were well presented, I had the calamari (Rs 475) and my wife had the goats cheese (Rs 565) - well oresented but nothing special about the taste. For mains we had 7 Seas Fish (Rs 995) and a Penne Pesto Prawn dish (Rs 645). The former was nicely presented and tasted OK. The pasta was distictly average and I've had much better for significantly less. All in all the bill was Rs 4339 including water, beer and taxes. There also seemed to be quite a few bugs flying around inside the restaurant.
We had a mostly nice experience here. The food we had was lovely and the drinks were really nice too. Only slightly concerning thing (for me) was we asked for certain dishes to be without dairy as we don’t eat it - and they said that wasn’t possible. That says to me dishes are pre made in the kitchen and not fresh. We asked at other restaurants and they were always able to alter dishes for us with no dairy. Other than that we had a nice meal and drinks.
As it is often the case real chefs get lost in the humdrum of average culinary noise when a diner is not able to reach them after coming against an overwhelming traffic of restaurants. And what better example than Goa, which has become a playground of every food enthusiast for miles with hundreds of eateries and bars filling up every nook and cranny of this beautiful port town. But don’t be disheartened as there still exists many great restaurants in Goa, which carries excellent menus but more importantly, a deep passion for gastronomy. Widely known as gourmet’s favourite, ‘A Reverie’ is an enchanting eatery situated on Holiday Street in Calangute area. This place is one of the best known kitchens in Goa, not just for its food but for its lovely ambience as well.
A Reverie is a beloved venture of two great food aficionados Aakritee and Virendra, who with their refreshing vision has put this restaurant on the local map. They do only dinner service so if you want lunch, head somewhere else. Their menu is entirely Continental with some Goan inspired dishes as well, which is worth looking into. Complementing their menu is an extensive wine library of which Virendra is an expert. Talk to Aakritee if you have any food allergies, she knows her allergies well. Their menu revolves around the fresh ingredients so it keeps in changing. A delightful concept for the regulars. Start with, crab meat tacos, the birds & the bees, fishing for compliments, choriz pao bao and lord of the rings. In mains go for, the Thai thali, the fish that swam in butter, the little BBQ and lobster tails.
The menu is a fun read, take your time. Dessert course is just as innovative. Indulge in, the coddled, coffeeholics anonymous, a lime & berry fashion show, go bananas and OCDobsessive chocolate disorder. Food is served in a playful contemporary manner so that not only it’s pleasing to the palate but also it’s pleasing to the eye. Encased in a typical Goan house with steeped ceiling and wooden rafters, A Reverie beckons you with its serene homely ambience. The traditional Goan vibe is essential part of the décor, which is kept simple and natural. If vacant, sit in their outdoor area shaded by huts and fragrant frangipani trees. An Expensive place to dine but so worth it.
With A Reverie Goa is waking up to a new era of modern gastronomy. The popular restaurant has taken upon itself to give the diners a memorable time by playing with its multi-cuisine menu and giving it a unique whirl. Situated in the heart of Holiday Street in Calangute, the restaurant challenges your senses with its flavours and interesting combinations. A fantastic wine library only helps the matters by complementing the food perfectly, a skill for which the owner is renowned for. The ambience is romantic. Sit outdoors under an open shed to enjoy your meal with cool sea breeze for a Special Occasion.
