Le Poisson Rouge, Goa - Outstanding setting and great food too!

Some of you may know that I’m just back from Goa. I’m afraid you will be subjected to a lot of Goa restaurant reviews on this blog  – as a thorough foodie – we kind of ate our way through as much of Goa as was possible.

We visited Le Poisson Rouge (French for the Red Fish) for dinner last Saturday.  I’d go back again as it provides an unbeatable combination:  Set in a spacious garden dotted with palm trees and candle lit tables with impeccable service and delicious Indo French style food delicious.

Positioned as a fine dine place its certainly fine dine and more. (NOTE: its not too pricey compared with Bomras, Brittos etc so ensure dinner there on your next Goa tripI

We started with shrimp stuffed calamari – delicious and the sauce totally complemented the delicate flavour of the seafood.

We ordered a veggie starter too - beetroot carpaccio – I tell you healthy (and veggies)  never  tasted this good! Delicately seasoned finely sliced beetroot topped with a mixed green salad. 

Drinks – we had cocktails, my companion had a cosmo and I had a Poisson Rouge Special, both very nice.

As it was the 1st stop of a long night out we’d planned to eat only starters with a drink each but we could'nt leave without trying a mains. The Honey Tamarind Pork Picata was worth it!

Don’t worry too much about mosquitos sitting in the open – saw allot of mosquito coils around.

We noticed a special on the board when we entered – of a many course menu costing Rs 1900 – would probably try it next time, offering shrimp, crab and much more.
