We had a long wait for food due to an irritatingly loud table of 10 that had walked in.. however we were given sincere apologies from Katarina along with complementary garlic bread (home made, fresh and hot) delish. Here it's quality over quantity and you don't get massive portions plus EVERYTHING is extra... for example I had the chicken steak with mushroom sauce and if I wanted anything with it I had to order it such as boiled vegetables or potato.. it came with 3 runner beans and 2 slices of carrot. However it was very yummy. Perhaps a bigger portion of mashed potato would be nice however I am a greedy guts! Lol. The decor and lovely and the chairs with cushions are pretty and comfortable. The service was absolutely top notch the waiters were fab and Katarina is lovely and really gets involved and says hello and goodbye to everyone .. plus her dog is so cute and is trained to not come into the restaurant so lies down on the mat outside.. adorable. Thanks Mermaid for a lovely evening. Xx
Just returned from a wonderful two weeks in Candolim.
We have been going for years and the highlight for meals has always been The Mermaid Restaurant.
The food is wonderful and the steaks are the best you will find anywhere.
Unlike a lot of restaurants in India the wine is also extremely good.
Do yourself a favour and visit Katarina and Banno at The Mermaid.
