Ciarans Restaurant

Welcome to the restaurant at Ciaran’s. We specialize in local fish and shellfish, which we buy daily from Goa’s largest fish market.

We offer a great selection of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes mostly cooked from scratch with fresh, local ingredients. Our dishes are cooked to order in our traditional Indian tandoor, or on our barbeque. So, at busy times, you might need to wait a little while to enjoy your food. All our drinks are served with mineral water ice.

We have tiered dining levels so all our guests can enjoy the sea view while they eat. This, combined with our comfortable seating creates a relaxing restaurant atmosphere you’ll look forward to every evening. Don’t fancy a large meal? Our Tapas restaurant next door at The Grove offers a delicious selection of authentic Spanish small plates, ideal for sharing.

A gem on the beach. Ciarans, the restaurant which has the best local food, view, music and ambience. We had some local wine and Chicken xaguti which was very well made. Wonderful evening well spent. Great service. Unfortunately couldnt taste the Bebinca

Really nice restaurant on the beach.Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food- recommend the tandoori chicken and the cheese balls. We ate here several nights and the staff reserved a table for us each time. They also have live bands/ singers.

One of the best places to grab a bite on Palolem. Seafood is fresh, drinks are great. Two beautiful dogs on the property (African Ridgebacks) and a great view of the beach. The mojitos and pina coladas are great! They have live music on one of the days, definitely call them to find out when it is.

Welcome to the tapas restaurant by Ciaran’s.

Tapas are small dishes that can be ordered individually or in a group depending on your appetite. Originating in Spain, they’re perfect for sharing and we recommend an order of three or more dishes per person as a main meal.

All our tapas are made from the freshest local produce and authentic imported Spanish ingredients. We only use mineral water ice cubes.

We even cater for your most important meal of the day – Ally’s breakfast includes healthy salads, homemade pancakes (fillings of your choice) and light fresh desserts. You can also enjoy a range of herbal teas from all over the world.

Fancy something different? Our restaurant next door specializes in Indian cuisine.

Chill out and enjoy and as the Spanish proverb goes:
‘El buen comer y el buen beber, el mayor placer!’
‘To eat and drink well is life’s best pleasure!’
