We wanted to have something different from the usual menu and thought Clean's tapas would be a good choice. The sister bar was heaving with people and they had a singer. By contrast the tapas place was silent. Service was good. Food was fine but not memorable.

On our first night in Palolem, we wanted to play it safe so we look at TripAdvisor for a good restauran. The place offered a live performance, great ambiance and tasty food.

This right on the palolem beach built on a slightly on upper deck different from other shacks. The structure itself is very attractive and appealing. But the menu and food is not that great, I guess shacks are better for food than this.

Do not go there after 21:00. You may eat your food in fast forward mode. While eating your meal the lights goes off to signal it's closing time..!. You lost your apetite and all the pleasure that a good meal could bring. It's unprofessional Behaviour... They might say in advence, before taking orders, that they would close shortly. Then we...

The service and the standard of the food at the Taco restaurant run by Ciarans was excellent. There was lots of different food to choose from. We ate at this restaurant 3 of the 4 nights we were in Palolem and always found something different to try. I had been travelling in India for 2 months by the time we... More

May be its all over here. You have to wait for them to attend you and for the order also but worth waiting. We ordered goan fish curry rice & salad. Its a nice place to chill for hours.

We came here for a birthday as we had been recommended. The prices are more expensive than other local restaurants but we didn't mind on this occasion. The service from the start was none existent and when we complained about incorrect meals the staff were so rude. The side order of fries also came 15 minutes after we had finished... More

I've been a couple of times to this beachfront restaurant and it's definitely one of the more expensive options for eating out along Palolem beach. The portion sizes are small too. I have usually gone there to listen to the live music which is great, and to have a beer. Last night the beers were not very cold which was... More

When you want a little something like home, ciarans do great Western dishes. I especially loved the vegetable lasagna. It's so good! The chips are made well also. Prices are expensive for Indian standards but nice for a treat now and again. Live music some nights which creates a fun atmosphere.

Thank okim
