Fisherman’s Wharf has four branches. The main one, established in 2005 was the brainchild of Mr. Xavier Furtado, a business professional from Goa. Fisherman’s Wharf has captured the tastes of the community with the best authentic local cuisine in Goa and is proud to serve people from all walks of life. The restaurants feature both indoor and outdoor dining, as well as live musical entertainment every evening. Guests can enjoy a comfortable open deck seating next to River Sal.

Soon we got the seats of our choice and we were all served with refreshing mocktails. While I ordered a classic mint and lemon mocktail, my friends ordered blueberry and start annise mocktail, cranberry mocktail, orange mocktail and Martini. Each of these were good, but the blueberry with star annise mocktail was extra-ordinary. It was really a star among the mocktails and cocktails. I would say it is one of the signature drinks there and is a must try.

After doing some photo shoots, we settled for the main course. When the Chicken Cafreal arrived, I could not believe my eyes. Tender pieces of chicken marinated in vinegar and cooked in a gravy made of coriander, lemon, green chillies and mint. This is one of my favorite chicken dishes and having found this dish in Bangalore, made my long time wish come true – that is to have Goan food in Bangalore.
The Pork Assad was served but I did not try this one as I am a non-pork and non-beef eating person.

Soon after the lunch we decided to go upstairs – to the Margarita Lounge Bar. All our cocktails and mocktails were made at this bar. The ambiance was cool and looked like a shack at the beach side in Goa. The bar serves an impressive range of drinks to wash the treats down with. There are Margaritas, wine, and of course, any Goan experience would be incomplete without chilled beer.
So to all my Goan friends who miss the Goan food in Bangalore, here is a best place to head to. “Sussegaad vachat ani javan enjoy karat”. 🙂
