Goa Cuisine – Food, Dining and Restaurants in Goa

Goa is a food lover's paradise, offering a taste tour of Indian cuisine, alongside local specialities, fantastic fresh seafood and tropical fruits, as well as international food options to suit the palates of its two million visitors.

Goan Food

The food in Goa, as with anywhere in the world, is influenced by location and climate. This small coastal state relies heavily on fishing, so seafood is a major part of the diet. The land is planted with coconut palms and rice paddies, and so coconut (oil, milk, cream and alcohol) is an important ingredient in Goa recipes, and rice is the staple food. Various spices are used to give the food its intense flavours.

However, what makes Goan food so distinctive is that it is also heavily influenced by history. 450 years of colonization resulted in Goan cooking absorbing a strong Portuguese flavour. Local seafood, coconut, and tangy kokum were combined with palm vinegar (unknown elsewhere in India), chillies and cashew nuts (introduced by the Portuguese) and meats, especially pork, to produce one of the world’s original fusion foods.

To this day, Goan ‘fish curry rice’ - freshly caught fish, such as mackerel, in a hot and sour coconut gravy - is a daily meal.

Traditional Goan Dishes

Unlike much of Indian cuisine, Goan cooking uses a lot of meat and fish. Goan Catholics in particular have been heavily influenced by their Portuguese heritage, with famous fusion dishes including vindaloo, traditionally prepared with pork and vinegar, spicy chouriço sausages, and chicken xacuti with chillies and coconut milk - all dishes whose names and ingredients have their origins in Portuguese cuisine, but with a Goan twist. Mol De Peixe (fish pickle) and Balchao (prawn pickle) are popular accompaniments.

The catch of the day may include kingfish, pomfret, shark and mackerel, with seafood including crabs, prawns, oysters and squid. Seafood can be cooked in sour and spicy sauces such as ambot tik, or more delicate coconut based masalas, rava fried in semolina flour, or baked in a tandoori clay oven.

And for dessert, the Indo-Portuguese blend is again evident in Goa’s most famous pudding bebinca, a rich, layered egg custard with coconut.

Goa Street Food and Dhabas

If you’re hungry but don’t want a full meal, are on a tight budget, or just want to explore eating like a local, then a local dhaba or street food cart is the perfect food pit stop.

Street food carts can be found in most towns in the evening, serving anything from chouriço sandwiches to deep fried chillies. In India’s only beef loving state, beef Chamuças (a type of samosa) and beef croquettes are also a common sight.

Another firm favourite is the Raos Omelette, dipped in a spicy coconut-based gravy and garnished with lime and onions.

And every Goan village will have a dhaba serving chai and bhaji-pao - a pea and potato curry with local bread - for breakfast.

Dining and Restaurants in Goa resorts

While it’s worth seeking out some authentic Goan food whilst on holiday, restaurants in Goa cater to all tastes and palates - from budget south Indian Udupis dishing up vegetarian classics such as masala dosa to high-end establishments serving gourmet mediterranean food. However, most of the time you will probably eat at local beach shacks, or your beach resorts in-house restaurants, offering fresh fruit smoothies, snacks, Indian curries, and fresh seafood on the bbq.

And if you crave a taste of home, whether that’s Tel Aviv, London or Berlin, then a number of expat run cafes can satisfy your craving for hummus, fish & chips or just a really good cup of coffee.

Drinks in Goa

Goa’s popularity as a holiday destination is boosted by having the lowest rates of tax on domestic alcohol in India, from famous Kingfisher beer and Old Monk rum to a wide range of wines and spirits.

Goan Porto, a sweeter less refined version of its Portuguese namesake, can be found everywhere, alongside feni, the local speciality made from cashew nuts or coconuts. Every bar will have its distinctive own feni, whether double distilled or flavoured with spices, but beware - it’s an acquired taste and extremely potent!

For non-alcoholic refreshment, popular local drinks include Badam, an almond milk, or sweet yoghurt lassi, as well as the ubiquitous chai and fresh coconut water.

But on the beaches you’ll find a wide range of refreshing drinks, including lots of tropical fruit juices, and imported alcohol alongside the local alternatives. So why not invent your own cocktail and continue Goa’s rich history of flavour fusion!

The best time to visit Goa

or The most popular time to travel to Goa

The best time to travel to Goa is between November and March, when the weather is dry and relatively cool, the sea is calm and clear, and all the facilities, from resorts and restaurants to beach shacks and parties, are open for business.

Goa Season

December and January are the most perfect - and popular - months to visit Goa, almost 100% rain-free with lovely cool mornings and evenings and hot beach weather during the day. This is the lucky Goan's winter!

Although the Goa ‘scene’ has slowed, some big music festivals are now regular fixtures at this time of year, as well as the best outdoor parties and big name DJs headlining at club nights. The weekly flea and night markets in north Goa are also at their busiest, with plenty of bargains to be had once you’ve mastered the Indian art of haggling, plus live bands and entertainment.

Goans, whether Christian, Hindu or Muslim, embrace Christmas, festooning everything with tinsel, whilst local school children try out their carol singing for tourists on the beach. Having a slap up seafood lunch under the tropical sun is certainly one way to get into the Christmas spirit, and New Year is no different in Goa to anywhere in the world, except that you can party with the warm sand between your toes under a sky full of fireworks.

Goa beach resorts

However, in terms of crowds, it is the busiest time, so the best Goa beach resorts get booked up early (by October many of them are full for the Christmas/New Year period) and some of the beaches, particularly in the north, get very overpopulated. However, in the south of Goa there are still plenty of more peaceful, crowd-free Goa resort options at that time of year.

Goa Off Season

February and March are great months to be in Goa, as the beaches slowly empty of tourists and room rates become more reasonable. From April until the monsoon rains break in June, the weather gets increasingly hot and humid (you may want to ensure that your room has air-conditioning at this time of year) and some beach places start to close. However, many resorts offer great rates at this time of year and you will sometimes have the remoter beaches practically to yourself!

October can also be a great time to visit to see Goa, vivid green after the monsoon and mostly free from other tourists, although there is still some occasional rain.

Goa Monsoon

And then there is Goa monsoon. Almost like clockwork, within the first ten days of June, the rains arrive. By this time all the temporary beach hut resorts have closed up and been removed and the only options for accommodation and eating are guest-houses and cottages of a more permanent nature, self-catering houses and apartments, and the large hotels dotted up and down the coast.

However, the rainy months of June to September have lots to offer providing you don’t mind monsoon storms or expect a beach holiday. The vegetation is green and lush, the rice paddies are planted and the seas wild and stormy. With activities more restricted to eating at local restaurants, enjoying vibrant festivals including Ganesha, and watching nature run riot, you can experience Goa like a Goan. Just remember to pack your raincoat!

Goa Weather

The following table shows the general weather in Goa month by month. However it’s important to remember that these are only guidelines and the weather in Goa may be surprising - hopefully for the better.

Goa weather chart, month by month

Panaji Goa

Panaji the Capital of Goa

Panaji (sometimes pronounced Panjim or Panajim), the capital of Goa and the third largest city in the state, situated on the southern banks of the Mandovi River, adding so much more to the natural charm of this untypical Goan city.

Panaji is a fascinating city, you will not find here any skyscrapers or heavily polluted air; instead you will find some of the most beautiful architecture, in the form of old churches, Portuguese houses and historical monuments. The riverside and the beaches around are a “must visit” for all those who want to experience the hardcore Goa nature that a city has to offer.

Although you can completely bypass Panaji Goa, either by jumping off the train at Margao or Mapusa or by heading straight off somewhere on a local bus, it is still worth spending time here, at least once.

Tourist attractions around Panaji

Fontainhas is an old Portuguese district of Panaji, located west of the Ourem River. The narrow streets, tiled red-blue-yellow-green buildings, shuttered windows and tiny overhanging balconies offer an atmosphere more reminiscent of the Portuguese days. You can visit the Church of St. Sebastian, in the southern part of the district.

The Church of Our Lady of Immaculate Conception is the main church of Panaji, constructed in the 15th century. This church is believed to be one the oldest in Goa and is dedicated to Mary, with two altars, one dedicated to Jesus and the other to The Lady of Rosary. The church is located on the eastern side of Church Square.

Goa State Museum, located in the EDC Complex in Patto, exhibiting a collection of artefacts of the pre-colonial era, antique furniture, temple sculptures and art. The galleries of the museum feature Christian art and Hindi sculpture, and paintings from all over India.

Goa beach around Panaji

Most tourists visit Goa for its incredible beach scene. If you only passing by Goa and want to make the best of a short visit, by not traveling to far, the two closest beaches to Panaji city center are: Miramar beach - only 3 km from the city center, and Dona Paula - about 7 km away. Both beaches are beautiful, offering a variety of Goa beach Resorts, and are much nicer place to watch the sunset then Panaji city center.

Other nearby recommended Goa beaches are, Calangute Beach - located nearly 16 km north of Panaji. Or if you don’t mind the 2 hour drive, and are planning to visit the south of Goa, don’t skip Palolem beach Patnem and Agonda. There you’ll discover a wide selection of accommodation, from common Goa resorts with a selection of beach huts, private Goa beach house, flats, or 5 star hotel. Most of them located directly on the beach.

Accommodation and Resorts in Panaji, North Goa

Panaji offers a large scale of Goa Resorts and accommodation solutions for all traveler classes. Few amazing 5 stars hotels are set in the city, together with service apartments, private villas or a guesthouse rooms, all available for long and short terms.

Generally speaking, in Goa hotels and resorts located near the beach tend to be pricier than the in-town hotels.
Note that areas nearby Panaji, like Calangute Beach and other beaches both North and South of the capital offers great deals for accommodation, and do worth checking out.

Business in Panaji

If you visit Goa for business, or you are starting a new business in Goa, you will probably spent a lot of time in Panaji, whether you like it or not.
The good news are, in Panaji you can probably find most of the services, infrastructures and facilities needed for your business. Lawyers, Accountants, Government Offices and the Courthouse, Police and FRO, are all in Panaji center.
Panaji offers a reliable electricity and stable internet settings in comparison to the rest of Goa, this fact together with the proximity to the business services. And the better human resource, attracts many new business to keep their offices in the capital.
