We stayed at The Tamarind in Anjuna for 4 days in june and cafe cotinga is the restaurant that serves the food there....Overall very tasty food and customized to meet the requirements of our little one who is 1.5 years old

Day 1: We had jeera rice and dal fry for lunch with a paneer starter... All of which was yum and non spicy... We also had masala chai after that which was freshly brewed for us

For dinner we had potato wedges, the fresh garden pizza and a NY cheesecake..
Again non spicy yet tasty ...Though the cheesecake could have been warmed before serving

Day2: the buffet breakfast has a wide range of things from made to order eggs, smoothie and waffles to boiled eggs, cold cuts, palak paratha, Alu muttar, sevai upma, break, cake and muffin, sheera and the cornflakes and milk and tea along with watermelon juice and fresh fruits...All of which was good and tasty

For dinner we had some dal fry and jeera rice again

Day 3: similar spread of buffet with pav bhaji, peas paratha and upma in the Indian fanfare with hashbrown.. Again all good and tasty

Other meals outside

Day 4:good breakfast as usual...Do try their smoothies waffles and eggs made to order...Really good and try their masala chai in the evening

Lovely ambience, great food, good service (a little slow though). Delicious dal makhani and chicken tikka! Goa’s best chicken tikka perhaps! The pastas and sandwiches too were rich & stunning! The banoffee pie can be inconsistent. Was absolutely fantastic the first time we visited but lost the original touch on our second and third visit. Fully recommend Cafe Cotinga @ Tamarind!

While staying at The Tamarind , I went for a quick bite to Cafe Cotinga.Was pleasantly surprised by the variety of dishes laid out for their buffet breakfast . There were waffles and pancakes as well as an egg station . Loved what I tried , but couldn’t do justice to all . Later after work , I called for dinner in my room . Great food . I have been here a couple of times earlier so I noticed new items have been added on the menu . Keep it up guys .

So the ambience here is great.. the food was average in terms of quality.. there is a lot of effort towards decorating the food in terms of presentation but the food itself isn’t very tasty or filling.. the quantity can be better too.. service is very delayed
