Butter Lounge in Candolim is one of the popular nightspots in Goa. Open throughout the year on select days, one cannot miss it as it is strategically located on the main Candolim road and has a huge mock saxophone right outside its entrance. There are three party zones here, two alfresco and one indoors. Wood rules here and is all over: walls, ceilings, bar cabinets, tables and chairs. During the evening, the place doubles up as a sports bar with a giant TV screen beaming live sporting action from around the world. But it's the DJ music that ensures the young, hip set come here to party. Butter Lounge is the venue for some top television jockey contests. Though a little overpriced and the food nothing to rave about, this is a great location for some loud music and dancing late into the hours of the night.

Set your alarm for the 'After Seven' experience. A fine dining restaurant that dots the Las Vegas style Candolim belt. Ambience and continental favourites.....and if at the end of the meal you have the tendency to gurgle with glee, then sit under a tiled canopy by the fountain, no one will tell the difference. Come seven and the place is rocking. No food will be dished from a degchi, phutta-phut...it's fine dining. Squids in lemon grass dressing, the starters are served with style and flair. Try the gruyere cheese souffle right from the oven, but remember to dip your spoon right in before it sinks…oh yes it is stuffed with a lot of hot air...and the taste? Whoosh!! But before it enters your oral cavity remember to lace it with a little of the grape coulis from the side. The combo is lip-smacking good, but there are more appetisers worth trying too - the. Beef Satay along with the kebabs, and the chicken and lamb both are popular preparations too. The beautiful open air garden lulls you into timeless space as you wait for the mains. The Grilled Chicken with its orange and ginger dressing, or the grilled sea food platter. Or try the pomfret served with beurre blanc flavored with tarragon, the sauce aromatic, smooth and lightly creamy. Don't forget the ever popular Fillet Steak char grilled to perfection served with freshly made bearnaise ,vegetables of the day and mash flavored with nutmeg. There is a lot at 'stake' in this regard, to pamper those taste buds. And then the fitting finale, Proprietor Leo D'Souza with Chef Lester have brought in continental delicacies wrapped in exclusive presentations... end the meal with a home made chocolate mousse flavored with kahlua or the grand marnier infused orange souffle. Mouth watering bliss! Wind up with an Espresso Martini, an after dinner drink which gurgles sweet nothings as it slides over your tongue and rocks your senses. Even that sensation causes no 'alarm'.
