The a la carte grill restaurant by the poolside at the Dona Sylvia will tantalize your tastebuds as you watch the chefs at work through the display kitchen. For starters try the 'everybody's' favourite — Prawn Cocktail. Or perchance the Fish Mousse on Crostini or the Smoked Chicken Salad. Hot or cold the appetizers are designed to please. The mains showcase a host of meats — the Beef Bourgignone with Bearnaise, the Carribean Roast Pork or the Grilled Red Snapper with Nicoise — classical preparations. Vegans do not despair, you have not reached your Waterloo, Vegetable Wellington is here at hand. Or perhaps go Itallian with the Spinach and Ricotta Canneloni. Don't get tarty and chocolatti with coffee, because before you indulge in the after meals coffee, the chefs have captivated the sweetness of each with these preparations. The Lemon Tart, the Chocolate Mud Pie and the Coffee Panacotta. And after that meal sit by the poolside with a steaming cuppa, life is to be lived to the fullest…mamma Mia.

The Seafood multi cuisine restaurant located on the bank of River Sal is an ultimate dining place. The restaurant has captured the tastes of the community with the best authentic Local cuisine in South Goa. Perhaps one could relate to the famous FishermanWharf at San Francisco which has a historical tale to tell. They say most of those boats berthed there belong to a third generation of the fishermen who have made their livelihoods on the waters of San Francisco Bay. Here in Goa at this Fisherman’s Wharf the chefs have worked on a menu which is an ode to the jewels of the sea. One can sit on a wooden deck opposite a host of fishing boats run by local families, perhaps third generation too, and watch them rocking on the swell of the river Sal. This classy restaurant has retained the Goan touch from the altairs (relaxing chairs) to the artifacts placed attractively around the place. Also like the San Francisco chefs who drew on a tradition of innovation and emphasis on fresh, local cuisine, so too emphasis here is on a fresh catch and local produce cooked with zest typical of the Goan kitchen. There’s King Prawn Recheado, the spicy Prawn Balchao, and Pomfret in butter garlic sauce. In the US of A, the wharf’s traditional restaurants reflect San Francisco’s Italian heritage, Goa’s Fisherman’s Wharf reflects its very own heritage — an ample selection of local Goan cuisine. Get acquainted with the complex nuances of Xacutti, or dig into Chicken Cafreal. The all time classic Goan Fish Curry with Rice, the thick orange curry — accompany that with a thick slice of fish is excellent. You can get hooked on it. It is a great place for family outings too, with a Chinese, Indian and European old favourites to tickle your palate. Team up a Sichuan Fried Rice with Chicken Tikka if you wish, it is your choice. Here is a peaceful setting to relax and unwind…and with the bar which serves an impressive range of drinks to wash the treats down with. You might murmur to yourself ‘Tomorrow will never come.’ Because there are Margaritas, wine, and of course, the chilled beer. It is the moment that matters. Cool! Let the tempo change. And during weekends the tempo does change with local musicians who strum and sing to accompany the zest of a satisfied palate. Simply put, one will get hooked at the Fisherman’s Wharf.

Nightlife Review

Buzz: 3/5| Décor: 3.5/5

Twelve hours a day for a life worth rocking to. Well let's not dwell on the fishing trawlers gently rocking on the swell of the river Saal across this restaurant…you can be on rocking mode too at the Fisherman's Wharf. It's a place for relaxation and peace…the ambience with its classy Goan touch, the barman busy at work in his little space in the center of the restaurant and the lapping of the waves as you sit there mesmerized by the rocking motion. Be a sea devil…even if you are near the river, or order one from the menu-prawns wrapped in bacon, a terrific combo with a chilled glass of beer. For the more adventurous, the three 'm's — Margarita, Martini and Mojitos. Of course the mojitos are the most popular frozen drink….combine it with the honey chili chicken…sweet and spicy with the slightly tangy mixed drink…slurp! The fourth 'm' is also a great way to while away the hours. A nibble on the masala fried prawns…..the Goan masala will tickle your palate, have you begging for more. And with every plate ordered the drink will help loosen the tense feeling….so work on the MnMnMnM factor or a bubbly glass of beer…you are sure to have a rocking time.
