There are so many fine dining restaurants in Goa that it really becomes a difficult choice to select one. While there are a lot of international cuisines available, even the local cuisine has a very evident Portuguese influence. Here are the 10 best fine dining restaurants in Goa that you should definitely try:

Wan Hao

Wan Hao in Goa Marriott Resort & Spa means welcome in Chinese and true to its name the decor and the service is extremely welcoming. It depicts a Chinese courtyard and the food is incredibly delicious and authentic. Their fish in roast chilli sauce, stir-fried prawns, pork spare ribs and black pepper lamb are really popular.

Le Poisson

Le Poisson serves not only the finest French cuisine, conceptualized by the renowned French chef and owner Gregory Bazire but is an experience in itself with its charming atmosphere. The simplicity and elegance of the decor clubbed with the discrete background music makes this place worth celebrating a special occasion as well. Some of the dishes worth trying are grilled chicken, pan-seared fish, vegetarian terrine, risottos and any of their sinful desserts.

Shandong in Radisson Blu has an elaborate oriental menu but the Vietnamese section is truly worth exploring. The decor is very classy and exudes elegance. While the pecking duck, fried squids and sushi california rolls are really good but the Vietnamese section steals the show with its very unusual flavours. Do try the rice paper rolls, kari and interactive steam boats. It is definitely one of the best fine dining restaurants in Goa.

Banyan Tree

One of the first Thai restaurants in Goa, Banyan Tree in Vivanta by Taj is set under a banyan tree which is over three centuries old. One can either sit inside or amidst the lush green garden area outside. The crispy vegetables in roasted chilli sauce, sweet water chestnuts in coconut milk, pan-fried fish in thai chilli sauce, thai green curry and satay are some of the most popular dishes which are a must-try.

When it comes to the local food in Goa, it is very hard to escape the Portuguese influence and Sublime is one place that serves the best of both. The food is very modern and innovative but still manages to blend the best of the both cuisines together. The organic tofu salad, seared tuna and balsamic beef fillet are totally must-haves here.

Mezcal is a spectacular restaurant nestled in an old Goan house. One of the few authentic Mexican restaurants in Goa, it is truly one of the finest places in the city. The nachos, chicken rotisserie, beef fajitas and tequila-based drinks are not to be missed.

Tamari in Vivanta by Taj definitely serves the best Japanese food in Goa.

The avocado rolls, miso soup, teriyaki chicken and duck are some of the most popular dishes here.

Out of all the fine dining restaurants in Goa, who would have thought even Burmese cuisine would be available. But Bomra’s has bought some of the finest and the most authentic Burmese recipes in Goa. The decor is soothing and without a doubt, the khao suey served with the traditional accompaniments is a definite must-try and their most popular dish. Some other great dishes include a huge selection of innovative salads on the menu, crispy pork salad, pepper beef and chocolate fondant.

Da Luigi

Da Luigi in Park Hyatt Resort and Spa is an amazing place for the lovers of authentic Italian food. The pastas are hand-crafted and organic and they have a wood-fired oven for perfectly baked thin-crust pizzas. This quaint restaurant also serves some really good mains like risotto with lamb ossobuco, pan roasted king prawns and slow-cooked tenderloin.

One can literally savour the cultural flavour of Greece at Thalassa, a restaurant perched on the rocky cliffs and seated upon the very comfortable cushioned cane chairs. The Greek-style salad, tzatziki with pita bread, calamari meatballs and lamb chops are a must-have.
