Where to eat in Goa ?
These days a visit to Goa cannot be fulfilled without a visit to Britto’s, which has become as much of a Goan institution as vindaloo and Tito’s. Firstly, the big x-factor that has locals and tourists flocking to Britto’s is its exquisite location. Nestled at the heart of the uber- cool Baga Beach, one can indulge in a sweet stroll on the beach and build up a hearty appetite for the sumptuous meal that awaits you.
Although Britto’s is rated as one of the best places in Goa to experience haute cuisine, this restaurant has humble beginnings, being the brainchild of Chef Dominic Britto in 1965.This typical Goan trained his son Cajetan along with others and passed on his passion and love for food that can be clearly perceived by anyone who visits Britto’s.
In keeping with the laid-back, “susseagad” charm that the restaurant tries to incorporate, Britto’s also organizes lives performances by local acts on a special Monday evening and those of you who are musically inclined, make note- Thursday is Karaoke Nite! The restaurant is also tastefully decorated and makes the most of its naturally beautiful settings and keeps things simple but elegant.
But ultimately it all comes down to the food right? Well, this is certainly one area that Britto’s doesn’t disappoint. Be it tradional Goan fare or suave Continental cuisine, Britto’s may have branched out in its menu but the standard still remains very high. However, if you really want to taste the true Britto’s, then you must go in for the delectable seafood platter where you can sample mouth watering delicacies like prawn cocktail, baked crabs , squid clamari, mussels in white wine sauce. All of this can be enjoyed with an array of cocktails, wine and beers from the restaurant’s international and local collection.
What makes Britto’s a truly memorable dining experience is the restaurant’s ability to balance the rustic, old school charm of its Goan roots with a veneer of sophisticated, high- end service.
