This iconic restaurant celebrates 28 successful years and loyal patrons still relish the authentic Goan-Portuguese food that this place is synonymous with. Consistency has been one of the key reasons for this restaurant retaining its popularity. The sea food served is fresh and of the best quality. Each Goan dish is a confluence of flavours and founder and Chef Deepa Awchat has obviously got her spice mixes right. An absolute treat for meat and sea food lovers, vegetarians too can enjoy some unique Goan Saraswat dishes. Caldo verde, the subtly flavoured potato and spinach soup cooked with milk and garlic, is the perfect way to start one’s meal. Pomfret recheado with the tangy vinegar-based red masala teases one’s taste buds, while the mutton xacuti with rice and the fiery squid chilly fry are the ultimate treat as main course dishes. The bebinca and dodol notwithstanding, I still prefer my creamy caramel custard to round off my meal. The service is efficient and a meal here, almost always memorable.
Overrated...and mixed results. On one hand I ate some delicious crabs, and then a curry which had a bizarre after taste. The place is very rehearsed, semi touristy. Not what you would think it is. The moment I saw a promotion on the table of please vote for us in TripAdvisor, I thought, this is not good news...... Would not go back, there are much better restaurants in Mumbai.
This restaurant has a legacy in its short span of 30 years. It's a small cosy place offering Goanese and Maharashtrian fod, though the ambience is typically goanese. We had prawns in goan curry and chicken in goan masala. Both dishes were very good; low on spice ye very tasty. the dessert dodal however could have been a better. the owner came around to inquire if all was well, adding his personal touch. There was a musician plaing music and singing to songs of your choice and his performance was enjoyable too... Overall a must visit every once in a while...
The Goa-Portuguesa restobar is one of Mumbai's iconic restaurants, having completed 30 years in 2018. The establishment is small in size but cosy and extremely hospitable. The owners too sometimes come around and attend to the customers, making sure their experience is top notch. The ambience has a very casual and relaxed feel, with live musicians performing songs which you pick. The food is an excellent representation of authentic Goanese cuisine.
Nowadays, when the restaurants struggle to stay alive and running even for a year, ‘Goa Portuguesa’ completed 30 years of successfully delivering their passion for good food. A restaurant that needs no introduction, the multiple award-winning resto-bar serves Goan, Portuguese and Continental Vegetarian, Non-Vegetarian and Seafood delicacies. The place has a vibrant look and feel, reflecting the vibes of Goa. Goa Portuguese just like its name, serve standardized delicacies that are thoughtfully created by Master Chef Deepa Suhas Awchat using modern day techniques. We started with the following, Mixed Veg Cashew Roll - You must try their dishes with cashew. Not only are they the bestselling, but also different from our usual appetizers. Cashew roll is crunchy and light on the stomach. Have it with the assortment of chutney, pickle and thecha available on your table. Prawns Rissois - Also known as shrimp Patrice, this is a traditional Portuguese special. Looks like a Nevri which is found in Xmas sweets, this one is a treat and we highly recommend you to try it. Chicken Cafreal - The Cafreal here is decent. We loved the taste and for those who don't know, the green Gravy gets its color from Coriander and green Chilly plus the Cafreal masala. This is mildly spicy. Coconut Crunchy Prawns - Perhaps the surprise package. They look like a Lolly pop, but this is because of how they prepared it. It's amazing and highly recommended. For mains, we tried, Tender Coconut Cashewnut Sukkhe - Served in a coconut, this preparation has vegetables cooked with cashew. The end result is that I've now tried a different dish which is light on the tummy but full of taste. It's spicy too. Give it a try for its uniqueness. Chicken Xacuti - I'm now a fan of their Xacuti. Visiting Goa has always been a good affair and I had tried the Xacuti in the local shacks. This preparation here reminded me of the local food in Goa. Hence it’s obvious that they've done their homework well. Mutton Vindalho - Vindalho has always been my favorite because of the spicy quotient. This masala has more of red chillies and hence be ready for a hot and spicy affair. The Mutton was cooked very well and hence the whole preparation was classic. Roast Turkey - Since it's the Xmas season, Roast turkey has been added into the list. Served with sautéed veggies, this preparation is bound to complete your party. You can also order it for your house parties. It's worth it. We tried the Amboli and Pao, which went well with the different gravies. For desserts, we tried, Bebinca - Your traditional Bebinca from Goa which is prepared here in Mumbai. I love the fact that they toned down the sweetness level and that makes this a must have dessert. Dodol - Another Ragi and Jaggery preparation makes dodol a very sweet dessert. But here they toned it down so well that you can eat it to your heart's content. Serradurra - One of the specials in Goa Portuguesa is the Serradurra. This is a pudding made with English Marie biscuits. This is not usually available usually on the menu and only made available because of the festive season. A must must have dessert. Overall, if you want to feel close to Goa, just visit Goa Portuguese, there is a reason the place has completed 30 years and counting.
we visited this restaurant and tried South Culture curry, I really enjoyed Appam and Stew of vegetables. we also had Alu vadi and Sabudana vada which was awewsome
Goan food has its fans throughout Mumbai as many city-dwellers pop in often to Goa and return back filled with gastronomical aspirations. The city of Goa has always enticed Mumbaikers as their food is colourful, complex and completely influenced by Portuguese. You can have a slice of Goa right here in Mumbai in the form of one iconic restaurant that has been feeding the cravings of Goan food for decades. ‘Goa Portuguesa Restobar’ is an integral part of Mumbai’s fine dining life and has a tremendous fan base when it comes to good wholesome food. Placed at Mili Building, Shivaji Park at Mahim, Goa Portuguesa Restobar is a favourite of Mumbaikers so finding a table on weekends is next to impossible, unless you reserve previously. It is popular with both natives and foreigners.
Goa Portuguesa Restobar is one of the best places for regional fare in Mumbai. Dig into scrumptious Maharashtrian, Goan and North Indian fare, especially delectable seafood preparations for which the restaurant is so well-known for. Founder and Chef Deepa Awchat has handcrafted the menu cleverly keeping her spices right, presenting an absolute treat for her diners. Select a drink first and then move onto the appetizers like, dahi ke kebab, stuffed crab, mix veg & cashew croquettes, kaju kothimbir vadi, recheado pomfret, crackling bhendi, chicken cafreal, stuffed papad prawn, potato sacremento, roast pork and corn & spinach tartlets. Pair sausages pulao with the mains, chicken rolade, batatyachi patal bhaji, xec xec crab, lobster Goa Portuguesa, chouricos, tender coconut cashew nut sukke, goenchi dal, galihna amendoin, Jack steak, hirva dum dum, squids in lemon butter garlic sauce, balchao and wangi batata masala.
It’s a lesser known fact that Goans makes some mean desserts. Their classic regional dessert bibinca and dodol are must haves when it comes to Goan feasts. You can also tuck into caramel custard, pan ice cream or chocolate mousse otherwise. Goa Portuguesa Restobar is easy to locate as it is housed in a traditional Portuguese style façade. Inside the dining room resembles a Goan beachside shed but a little more sophisticated. Décor is old-fashioned and cosy with all those paper lanterns and latticed ceiling along with chalkboard menus on every other corner. The place reflects the spirit of Goa perfectly. Live music and charming outdoor area are great add ons. In 1300/- bucks two people can eat to their heart’s content.
