Goa is known for its delicious sea food preparations.

Fish Curry and Rice (or Xitt Codi in konkani) is a staple diet for many Goans.

Please recommend any good restaurant in Goa, where one can get tasty fish curry and rice.

Please post your reviews and speciality dishes in these restaurants, if possible.

Some recommendations from my end :-

I have tried -

Ritz Classic at Panjim, located at 18 June Road, near Panjim Church. If you are a group of 3-4 people, then order the Fish Platter, along with your fish curry rice, which is a selection of all type of available fish with them. I also tried Prawns Curry which was very tasty. It seems this place is open only for Lunch and not for dinners in evening.

Tilve Lunch Home near mahalaxmi temple, Bandora. Ask for a local fish called 'tarli' over here. They also serve fried oysters called 'Shenani' - a local delicacy.


Places which I will try in my next trip -

Anandashram in Panjim, near GPO. This restaurant is supposed to be quite popular among locals and office-goers. Quite crowded at lunch time and a Fish Thali costs around Rs 25 or 30.

Martin's Corner at Betalbatim in South Goa. Supposedly, Sachin Tendulkar's favourite restaurant in Goa. Quite expensive. They have a website at http://www.martinscornergoa.com

Amazing Joe; do you photograph all your meals when travelling? (I only took a quick look at the flikr page).

Certainly adds a different dimension, and a different set of memories. I think its a really good idea

Nick,

GoaJoeUK is an anonymous person, who has been covering various aspects of Goa through his camera (including the Fish Curry Rice )

Check this url on flickr

http://www.flickr.com/photos/joegoauk5

In above link replace 5 with any number from 2 to 12. There seem to be almost 1000+ pictures of Goa. The Tiatr (theatre) festivals and beautiful pics of Goan greenery. It will take quite some time to see his entire collection.

Great work Joe, your fish curry pics are too mouth watering !! I feel like making a quick Goa trip for those xitt coddis.

This place has been put on the list by WildGoa (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wildgoa/) as serving meat from endangered animals including bull frogs (when a dish they call it jumping chicken).

Over the past five years the hunting and eating of frog legs has increased so much that they are now endangered in Goa.

By the way, (all) frogs are protected under the Indian animal protection law and hunting, eating and even possessing them is punishable.

Peters

Peters Beach Shack can be found just north of the horizon beach resort near to the agro chemical factory. FRom the coast road take the lane signposted to "WOW" carry on over the rail crossing and follow the lane down to the beach. You will get the warmest welcome and the freshest fish and if you are lucky Peter will also entertain you with his card tricks while his wife cooks your meal. THIS IS A VENUE NOT TO BE MISSED
If it ain't broke > don't fix it.

Good food in Goa

All of the places you listed are good. You might also want to try Florentines in Saligao (Chogm Rd)- it's closed on Mondays I think. Or O Coqueiro on the main road in Porvorim.
