Blue sea, blue a sky...it is the exact environment to lull you into the 'susegado' mood. And what does the word mean? Relax and live a little. The Goan mantra brought to you by the Leela..and still they grill..grill..grill you till you are totally relaxed. Although fish features predominantly on the menu, the meats too are grilled to perfection. But besides the grills, the chef's pamper your palate with light preparations that will tickle your taste buds. Try their Susegado Salad with prawns. The name tells its own story. The fruits (apple and pineapple) labouriously nudging the salad to a fruitier aftertaste. Or perhaps the Trio of Prawns - the three in one combo of dry prawn kishmur, masala fried prawns and prawn balchao - definitely a taste of Goa. Going further south? The South Indian Masala Snapper Fish. From Kerala comes the coriander rich green masala rawa crusted fish..crusty on the outside.soft on the inside. The Susegado offers you lighter meals too. La Ensalada Griega, a vegetarian Greek salad with feta cheese or perhaps the Falafel Pita Sandwich (chickpea minced patty)..the taste is guaranteed to blow away the blues. Coming back to the grill - a definite recommendation! The fishing jetty across the river Saal is testimony to the fact that one cannot get it fresher. Red Snapper, Pomfret, King size prawns, Lobster.it's your choice for the day. And as the golden orb of the sun slowly turns the skies from hues of orange to shade of purple and blue...remember the night is still young to keep your mood in mode 'Susegado Blue. The reservation of tables in advance is advised.

When in Rome do as the Romans do...so goes the saying. And when in Goa...live like the Goans do 'susegado' relax and live a little. And at Sousegado, for quality relaxation — this is just the place for you. Miles of pure sand, blue ocean, chaise loungers for the sun worshippers and a bar to take care of all your needs. Now while this eatery specialises in seafood, the barman too is handy with his mixes. As the sun rises in the clear blue sky and people are ready to begin a hearty breakfast, the barman is ready with his concoctions. From 9.30am to 10.30pm his ever ready demeanour mixes and pours from a well stocked bar. Nibble on masala peanuts as you sip on a chilled Mojito. Crunch on those cheese lings and with a cheesy smile let the Margarita slide with slow abandon down your throat. There is a drink for every moment of the day...and with the gentle lapping of the waves across the beach relax with a Goan susegado...the local Feni with its lemony flavour will work on its very own magic to put you in the right frame of mind. This place has all the right mixes...including snaky tit bits to while away the hours. Spring Rolls or Falafel will energise you to take a short walk across the pristine sands and enjoy nature's beauty. And as the golden orb of the sun slowly sinks below the horizon, remember that the night is still young and happening. And with the four 's'...sorry five... sun...sand...sea.... spirits...and susegado...Can anyone ask for more?

Castaways, the seasonal poolside restaurant at the Ramada, is a good bet for daytime fun. The setting is magical, with the pool on one side and the sea roaring across the gardens on the other side. The swaying palms and the gentle sea breeze seem to rid you of all inhibitions. There's live music every night. The succulent Chicken Tandoori from the grill, Seafood Tandoori and tender barbequed meats and veggies like paneer rule the roost. They also serve some Goan items. Many visit this place to make the most of their daily changing theme buffet featuring a variety of cuisines.
