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!

Family Resort in Goa

Family-Friendly Goa

Goa’s reputation as a family-friendly destination has grown in recent years, with more Goa resorts catering to parents with little ones, safer food and water, and plenty of fun activities both on and off the beach. Miles of golden sand and gentle sea make Goa beaches the perfect playground, but elephant rides, boat trips and colourful markets are never far away if the kids tire of building sandcastles!

The state of offers winter sun with less long-haul travel than Thailand or east Asia, and the increasing numbers of foreign families settling in Goa has fast-tracked lots of facilities that tourists can also enjoy. From family resort in Goa, kindergartens open to visiting kids alongside their ex-pat peers to babysitting services, parents can have some ‘alone time’ on holiday and the occasional night off.

So, with a bit of planning and a few basic precautions (vaccinations before travelling, and bottled water, sunscreen and mossie spray once there), a holiday in Goa is becoming a firm favourite for families.

South Goa for Families

The beaches of south Goa are more pristine and peaceful than their northern neighbours, making them ideal for families seeking safety and some peace and quiet. South Goa resorts are quickly catching up with demand, with many now offering family rooms, communal chillout areas, kids menus and beach kits - buckets and spades for the little ones to kayaks and boogie boards for older children.

Canacona region in south Goa is a particular family favourite, with a large community of ex-pat parents who have established services including schools, babysitting and paediatric healthcare, which are available to long and short stay kids alike.

Local travel company KOKOindia offers a family kit, with everything from car seats to cuddly toys, to help make travel with young children stress free and suitcase light!

With the beach on your doorstep and just enough local adventures for kids big and small - think jungle safaris and dolphin spotting trips - south Goa is shaping up as a fantastic spot for a fun family holiday.

Patnem beach with the family

Peaceful pretty Patnem is a popular Goa family beach holiday destination, with clean golden sand, safe bathing, an international kindegarten, and a warm welcome for parents.

A trio of resorts in the middle of the beach tick all the ‘family-friendly’ boxes.

Salida Del Sol offers spacious sea-view family huts where parents can watch the kids on the beach from their balcony. The resort has fun helpful staff, kiddie friendly food, and colourful chillout booths that often double as impromptu creches for play dates.

Neighbouring April 20 Resort has well-furnished family rooms featuring two double beds, and a large comfortable sea facing restaurant ideal for extended family groups. Plus the comfiest sunloungers on the beach, tailor made for sampling one of their famous sunset cocktails whilst the kids comb the beach for shells and chase crabs.

And HOME resort has great selection of accommodation, including double roomed flats in the Big House, a huge garden with chillout circle and hammocks, and a relaxed kid-friendly vibe. It’s the only places on the beach serving ‘Home-made’ cake and pudding specials - getting the thumbs up from children and parents alike!

Palolem Beach with kids

Picture-perfect Palolem is the busiest beach in the area, with a great selection of restaurants and nightlife, but not the most obvious choice for families, especially during peak season. However, those in the know head for the pockets of peace away from main action.

Cafe Blue is situated on the tranquil north side of the beach, with spacious sea view huts, hot water and air-con. Its palm-shaded beachfront area with bean bags and long tables is perfect for playing when the beach becomes too hot, and the super friendly staff and breakfast pancakes deserve a special mention!

The calm shallow sea at the north end of Palolem beach is ideal for little ones still in water wings, leading into a lagoon where you can take a charming bird-watching boat trip. Older children will love the water sports available, whether paddling a kayak out to ‘Monkey Island’ or catching that night’s supper on a fishing trip.

At the peaceful south side of Palolem, Abel Cressida resort offers family size accommodation in a pair of cottages with double attached bathrooms and large balconies opening out to its lush tropical garden.

Just a bit further south, in a secluded little bay, Green Park is ideal for young families, with a ‘private beach’ feel. All of its spacious comfortable beach huts are just steps from the sea and feature large private balconies - perfect for watching the little ones play in the sheltered waves and the spectacular sunsets across Palolem beach.

Agonda Beach and your Family

Recently voted second best beach in India and Top 3 Beach in Asia, Agonda is a very popular destination for parents, with a laid back atmosphere, 3-km of pristine white-sand coastline and very family orientated accommodation. With none of the notorious Goan nightlife it has a deserved reputation as the beach to get away from it all, with a selection of resorts helping you do just that!

The southern end of Agonda beach has calmer seas for more child-friendly swimming, and is the location of Cuba Agonda. Featuring huge beachfront bungalows, the resort is ideal family accommodation, boasting a private beach area with sunbeds, beanbags and showers, whilst the rooms offer air con and even bath tubs.

Neighbouring Dunhill Resort has a selection of modern luxury rooms in its courtyard behind the beach. Chic, spacious and full of light, they are a cut above most Agonda beach accommodation, for families who want a barefoot beach holiday but don’t want to compromise on style and comfort! The beachfront restaurant comes highly recommended

Even further south, Shanti Village offers luxury private cabanas right on the beach, with extra large beds that would suit parents with little ones. The spacious rooms, open-roofed bathrooms and big balconies with comfortable day beds mean there’s very little need to move, except for the occasional dip in the ocean. Meals can also be delivered to the rooms from the restaurant behind, all in all making Shanti Village a perfect option for parents who just want to relax and enjoy the magnificent sea views whilst the kids play in the sand.
