Found in the back roads of Saipem, Candolim, House of Lloyds’s is a magnificent restaurant set up in a beautiful garden. The house of course is the backdrop to this unique establishment. The villa is a hundred and fifty year old Portuguese styled house with an immense garden ideal for the restaurant to cater to functions and events, weddings and so forth. The surrounding neighbourhood is an inimitable illustration of the true Goa. Furthermore to add to the uniqueness of House of Lloyds’s, not only will you find original Goan food but a contemporary ‘fusion continental BBQ’.

Mustard, a Bengali and French cuisine restaurant, promises you a lot more than delectable food. Goa is blessed with a legion of culinary ventures serving International, Indian, and Goan offerings and I have always been on a lookout for flavours I haven’t experienced yet or the ones I miss from the past. Being the smallest state in the country, it’s surprising how Goa is replete with such culinary diversity but what cuts through the clutter are places that have painstakingly researched and curated not just their menu but their ambience and music.

Contemporary comfort food
Set in an old colonial bungalow in the by lanes of Panjim, The Black Sheep Bistro (BSB) is a delightful find. Prahlad and Sabreen Sukhtankar’s labour of love, BSB has all the trappings of a great eatery. Chic minimalistic interiors, soft music and an elegant set up that promises nothing less than a fantastic evening. Since both Prahlad and Sabreen have been in the hospitality business for most part of their careers in India and abroad they bring with them a unique sensibility of marrying the local with the global. The menu has been painstakingly crafted using this philosophy of sticking to local produce and flavours and giving them an international twist.
