Nolan Speaks

4.0 /5

An old house that has seen many years go by and is notoriously known for the capture of Charles Sobhraj back in the day. It even has a mural on the verandah dedicated to his legacy at O’Coqueiro, Porvorim junction. Walk in for a choice between the air-conditioned and the open space. The open space is airy with a bar right in the middle of the area. The seating is casual and this space also has a private dining area. If you wish to move into the air-conditioned area beside the small bar ‘Taverna’, then you have a choice of choosing your own private dining room depending on the numbers. A quick glance through the menu and you will find old Portuguese favourites are listed. For starters opt for the Pasties de Peche – 8 croquettes of fish with a potato mix or you can stick to the popular Rissoise de Camarao. The prawn filling in a crunchy casing is a delight. For mains, try the Castelaa De Porco which are succulent pork chops in a mild sauce on hash brown or the Galinha Cafreal, a half chicken served the traditional way which is a full leg and breast. For the continental fare, don’t miss the Beef O Coqueiro. The meat is succulent in a flavorful brown sauce with a fried egg on top that adds to the taste. A perfectly nostalgic experience.

About O' Coqueiro, Porvorim, North Goa

When you think of Goa, what is it that first comes to your mind? Is it the stunning beaches or is it exciting nightlife? For us, Goa is all about food. The city is home to some truly enchanting eateries, each with their own perspective on regional gastronomy. Gorgeous old villas have been converted into fine dining restaurants, giving the diners a backdrop seeped in culture and history. If your tastes run in the same direction then drive down to Porvorim in Penha de Franca, where you will find a splendid eatery by the name of ‘O’ Coqueiro’. Any local will tell you this place is legendary. This old house, which was infamous for the capture of Charles Sobhraj, basks in the scandal rather than avoid it. A stunning mural on the veranda is the indication to this fact.
