  • We took a bus from Colva to Margoa and then another from Margoa to Quepem. Walked from the bus to the restaurant. So a bit of a trek. Would recommend a taxi or tuktuk, but the bus rides are always int...  more »

  • This is the place that was built in 1786 and the residence of the Bishop. The first chapel of Goa is also housed here. The place was in ruins and Reubins through his hard work spread over 3 years restored it. He has tried to recreate some of the style of that period. He serves Indo Portuguese fare to his guests. The food is delicious and most of it farm fresh. He normally serves a five coarse meal that is splendid and fulfilling. The leisurely rounds of the meal ate just equisite.
  • Excellent old house, renovated with love and care. The host explains everything very well. Food (lunch) was superb!
  • Just an old heritage house, has beautiful garden. They have a restaurant which needs to be reserved 1-2 days ago.
  • One of the best lunches to had in Karnataka. Definitely worth a visit for the tour of the house and the cocktails
  • Interesting Portuguese house. Nice owner of the house. This house is amidst the rice paddy fields. Very far in the interiors from the town.
