COVID-SAFE PLACE TO DINE OUT. GOOD FOOD AND AMBIENCE WORTHY OF VENTURING OUT FOR.

Food tasted really nice and fresh. Generous helping. I tried the classic vindaloo chicken and a honey-glazed orange pork steak. 🤤
Both meats were well cooked, not bland on the inside. The steak was surprisingly juicy even from the inside and all the flavours were on point. 💯
Their cocktails didn't disappoint either. And they were kind enough to adjust the spice levels of the vindaloo for me :)
The hype around the caramel custard is REAL! It's a huuuge helping with exactly the right colour of caramelized simple syrup.
Roughly cost me Rs. 600 for a strong cocktail, main course, and dessert which tasted GREAT. Quite a deal, no?

SERVICE was prompt and polite. They were wearing face shields, gloves, and masks. They really did EVERYTHING possible to make sure safety precautions were in place. Food didn't take too long to come on the table. The food was served on warm plates which is always a nice touch in my books. For safety reasons, they DON'T ACCEPT CASH. So go prepared to pay by card.

AMBIENCE is charming with cute goan music playing in the background. My only issue is with the loo. It had a wet floor because of a leaking shower for some reason. So the bathroom smells really musky but is clean other than the smell and leaking shower head. Made me want to get out of the loo as soon as I entered it.
Wrap up:
With the money and effort to go eat out. It's a really sweet establishment.
I just felt bad seeing such a nice restaurant not have ANY footfall other than us the whole time we had dinner there. Quality, cute places like these, going out of business would be really sad.
So IF you EVER feel like going out to eat something nice, please do come here. They have ALL the bases covered, right from North Indian, Chinese in both very and non veg plus sea food. There's something for everyone here! Be #vocalforlocal, and get a great meal and drinks at the same time!

Restaurant is located in a small house and is often crowded, once you try the food you'll know why. Have been going here for last few years. One of my favorite places in Panjim.
From fish, chicken to even vegetarian options, nothing has ever disappointed. Definitely recommended if you're only looking for good food.
Since the place is quite small it gets a little congested. Also the service is bit slow.

The food is as amazing as the ambience. Located in a quaint alley in the central area of the Panjim hub, it is one of the best places to go to in Panjim. We tried the Apricot Chicken and Fish Sizzler, along with their Bebinca and Caramel Pudding and they are all TO DIE FOR. I can't wait to go back to Goa just to have their food. It's absolutely worth every rupee you pay.

It’s a small yet popular restaurant in Panjim serving the best soup I’ve had in Goa. Even though I have only had 2 dishes here (Goan Soup and Prawns Curry & Rice) both of them were exceptionally good. I would love to try their Xacuti next time. ✌🏻

The small package that this magnificent place comes in only adds to the feel of this place. The service is fast and at the top level. The taste steals the thunder the moment you immerse in the ambiance. A great place for you to go if you love Goan food any food on plate for that matter.

One of my favourite places in Goa. Most of my meals end up being here. Excellent seafood. And their Bebinca is a must order. Been going here for a long time and they have been consistently great.

This is a lovely little family run restaurant tucked away in a discreet corner of fountainhas, some call it the Latin quarters. This beautiful location has a distinct old world charm to it. The food was fantastic, the service was good and the ambience was fantastic.

It's a heritage hotel established by the mom of the current lady boss in the Fountainhas, portugese colony. The food we tried - seafood platter, Crab curry were yummy yummy. The ambience with Christmas fervour was a cherry on the cake. Would love to visit our again and again.

A nice, quiet restaurant to try out if you're in Goa looking for authentic Goan cuisine. This place brings the true taste of Goa to the table. Walk a little bit around the old part of Panjim (Fontainhas) to get there. Service was quick. Well priced for what it offers. Sadly they don't serve beef which was a big disappointment to us as we went there hoping to satisfy our cravings for a juicy steak. Had to settle for a pork apricot steak which was pretty good too.

We had walked past this place so many times in our month long stay here. Thanks to a friend who strongly recommended it and we took the few steps inside the lane to this best of Goan cuisine experience at Viva Panjim. We surely will revisit most nights we are here more for. Sanjay special thanks to you and entire team of Viva Panjim. Ambience is good, sanjays recommended food and cocktails were just awesome ⭐️✅ We had: 🔸 Steak Au Poivre Selected Pork cut, Marinated in fresh cream and mild salad oil, grilled with pepper and garlic, served with fries, Vegetables and salad. 🔸 Goan Rumba (Feni, Rum, Orange juice, Pineapple juice) And finger chips, Pork was very well done. We also tried their home brewed Feni, with Limca, great taste and must to have whenever we here. We had 1-2 table fans towards us so we were fine. There is an air conditioned area too. It becomes very busy so please reach on time or book in advance perhaps. Strongly recommended

Viva Panjim is a family-run restaurant in a colorful, heritage home in the heart of Panjim, Goa. The restaurant offers traditional Goan cuisine, as well as a selection of seafood and steak dishes. I recently visited Viva Panjim with a group of friends, and we were all very impressed with the food and the ambience. We started our meal with the squid butter garlic fry, which was perfectly cooked and had a delicious, garlicky flavor. For our main courses, we ordered the pork roast, the pork xacuti, and the mixed seafood sizzler. The pork roast was tender and juicy, the pork xacuti was flavorful and spicy, and the mixed seafood sizzler was a generous portion of grilled prawns, fish, and squid. We also tried the Goan fish curry, which was another delicious dish. The curry was made with fresh fish, tomatoes, and spices, and it had a rich and flavorful taste. For dessert, we shared the caramel pudding, which was light and creamy. The service at Viva Panjim was excellent. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, and he made sure that we had everything we needed. The atmosphere in the restaurant is also very pleasant. The restaurant is located in a beautiful old house, and the interior is decorated with traditional Goan artifacts. Overall, we had a wonderful dining experience at Viva Panjim. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the ambience was charming. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Goa. Here are some additional details about the dishes we ordered: Squid butter garlic fry: This dish is made with fresh squid that is coated in a batter of flour, garlic, and spices, and then fried until golden brown. It is a light and flavorful dish that is perfect for sharing. Pork roast: This dish is made with pork that is roasted in the oven until it is tender and juicy. It is served with a side of Goan-style rice and vegetables. Pork xacuti: This is a traditional Goan curry that is made with pork, tomatoes, and spices. It is a flavorful and spicy dish that is sure to please. Mixed seafood sizzler: This dish is made with a variety of seafood, including prawns, fish, and squid, that are grilled and served on a sizzling platter. It is a hearty and delicious dish that is perfect for sharing. I would definitely recommend Viva Panjim to anyone looking for a delicious and authentic Goan meal. The food is excellent, the service is attentive, and the ambience is charming.

Authentic experience for Goa cuisine and ambience. I am so lucky to stumble upon this amazing Goan restaurant which was right next to my room. I’ve tried Pork Vindaloo , which was the softest and fresh tasting pork I ever had. The curry was exquisite with blend of sourness, tomato purée and mild Indian spices. Tried that gravy with Goan special Poi bread. Also tried Mixed fried rice, not a dish that goes well with restaurant, but had good flavours to it. Calamari/ Squid butter garlic, was slight disappointing and I found it good chewy. Basically it was frozen and then fried. Not too much to complain since majority population might be used to that chewy texture. Ended meal with Coconut pudding/ Suffle. They nailed it with its gelatinous. Overall, enjoyed it. Will with recommending to my friends and family. Good luck to the Team at Viva Panjim.

Nestled in the heart of the Panjim City, capital of Goa, this restaurant is an absolute blast that deserves all the praise it gets. From the moment you set foot inside, you're enveloped in an atmosphere of warmth and cozyness. The decor is a blend of Portugese houses and Goan history, with dimmed lighting that sets the perfect mood for a romantic lunch, dinner or a celebratory gathering. The menu is a culinary journey that caters to diverse palates. The chefs here are true artists, creating dishes that are not only visually stunning but also bursting with flavor. I can't recommend the Dragon chicken enough; it was a really tasty dish with a tasty Schezwan sause, which was yummy and crunchy. The service is impeccable, with attentive staff who are knowledgeable about the menu and provide excellent choice for first time visitors. It's evident that the staff takes great pride in making your dining experience unforgettable. The dessert was something I wasn't able to try as I got an urgent call which required me to attend an urgent meeting, but I'm hoping to try the same on my future visit. In conclusion, this restaurant is a culinary masterpiece. It's not just a place to eat; it's an experience. Whether it's a special occasion or a desire for exquisite dining, this establishment consistently delivers excellence. It's no wonder it's a favorite among locals and visitors alike.

You get a nice Goa/Portuguese experience in the ambience here with the cute place, music and lightings. Considering food there are better options available elsewhere. Always enquire the charges before ordering seasonal foods(one plate of crab costed us 1000 INR)as it is not mentioned in the menu card. We wanted to have authentic Goan foods like Pork Vindhalo, chicken cafreal etc.. But the taste was not upto the mark expected (as we have tried in different restaurants during Goa stay). Breads were super-hard. Serradura was good. You get fast delivery of the foods.
