Palolem was very quiet this year - April. Ciarans was the busiest place with live music. Didn't eat but menu looked varied and really helped by explaining what everything was. Would have definitely gone back if I had more time available.

Located at Cancona beach like, palolem. Live music, Serve alcohol, fine dine, good seating arrangements, extraordinary service. Best in their seafood section like King crab, Monster lobster, Jambo prawn and Goa's special Goan fishes. Inspite of that veg food also available in large variety. Great taste, good quantity. All types of credit card and debit cards accepted.

Bang on the Palolem beach (which is anyway a thin strip of beach ) so you sit pretty close to the water), the food is good and the portions generous. Drinks are a bit expensive, I suggest you drink up at the innumerable shacks on either of Ciarans and eat here. Service is fast, if a little smarmy (Waiter Chris)... More

The location is good, right on the beach and the front facing the beach is beautifully designed, but the entrance that is reachable with a car is horrible. You have to pass through mud, a pigsty (literally) and a dark narrow dirt passageway. The A/C room was small and very basic. There are lockers for valuables right outside the room... More

We booked a two weeks stay at Ciarans, and the resort arranged transfer for us from thr airport which all went swimmingly, despite our flight arriving late. We were welcomed warmly by Linda on reception who went through all the check in information and details of spa, restaurant times etc. We were also really grateful as she had our room... More

The food here is nice, but nothing special. the service isn't great, I sat in here for 2 hours and was only asked if I wanted a drink once. The waiters seemed to be more interested in chatting to each other than serving people. I went back in the evening to give it another chance and the service was much... More

We wanted to have something different from the usual menu and thought Clean's tapas would be a good choice. The sister bar was heaving with people and they had a singer. By contrast the tapas place was silent. Service was good. Food was fine but not memorable.

On our first night in Palolem, we wanted to play it safe so we look at TripAdvisor for a good restauran. The place offered a live performance, great ambiance and tasty food.

This right on the palolem beach built on a slightly on upper deck different from other shacks. The structure itself is very attractive and appealing. But the menu and food is not that great, I guess shacks are better for food than this.
