Critic Rating

Nolan Speaks Writer/Blogger/Photojournalist


Donovan Vaz has conceptualised this small, informal place to relax right next to the sandy beaches of Benaulim. Termed as a ‘Goan bistro’, this simple tiled roof and the open airy feeling; it lives up to the definition of ‘informal food’. Orange and red are the colours of dominance and the dinner tables clad in checkered tablecloths lend to the bistro feel. Highly recommended chicken liver pate and the firefly prawns – a ‘continental’ innovation. Do order a plate of his famous BBQ pork ribs. For the seasonal dessert, try the chickoo mousse and Jamaican caramel. Flit the night away with great cocktails over a perfect ambience.

Can make it a better place

Been der last nite for the 7Musicians event with my friend who is one of the ACE JAZZ Drummer of doubt the event was good, However, Donovan needs to groom d waiters to be hospitable also when sm1 is hosting an event, der should be enough space to accommodate the crowd rather den the host (Lady at the counter) saying that all the tables are reserved when 1 have already paid the cover charges...It's not about money Donovan...It's all about hospitality and we Goans are best known for the same...Cheers...

Good food

Had a good meal at firefly. Food was good and service was prompt. Would recommend making dinner reservations since it was packed by 9 pm. Live music when we were there.

Amazing place with great food...

It was during one of our impromptu visits to Goa that we visited this place. Seated at Lounginhos, we decided that we wanted to try some new places and Zomato rated this place a good 4+. This very cool bistro is located on the road to the beach and one cannot miss it. The ambience is wonderful and the food is great. I loved the Chicken Xacuti with Rice. The menu is moderately priced with a wide spread. Drinks are pretty moderately priced too. You'd be delighted if there was a live performance or a Karoake night there.

Good food, near the beach

We came here during the monsoon season so it wasn’t that crowded. They had put up large screens for the guests to enjoy the World Cup and added to the good meal, we had a fun time. The Bloody Mary was made perfectly and the Beef Steak was as we had wanted it, medium. Must try the Jamaican caramel as it’s an interesting twist on the traditional caramel custard! All in all a fun evening!
