Ever feel like escaping your fast paced city life to just relax and put your feet up in the sand? Well, now you can! Here are 3 restaurants that’ll make you feel like you’re on the beach!
This gem of a place will charm you with its beautiful interiors, chilled out atmosphere and authentic sea-food. A special mention to their outdoor sitting area – the beach chairs, sand and music make you feel like you’re vacationing in Goa. They even have a hammock! Look out for events like acoustic evenings, DJ Nights and even some theater acts that are performed here.
For dinner, we recommend the seafood platter. The butter garlic prawns were absolutely delicious! If you’re not into sea-food, they also serve a variety of American and European options with a range of salads, burgers and pizzas to choose from. There’s also a special Sunday brunch menu with sumptuous breakfast platters and a separate waffle menu. The hot chocolate fudge waffle is a must have for anyone with a sweet tooth, and the crispy chicken waffles are an interesting choice for those who love experimenting. The restaurant also offers an extensive drinks menu, because hey! A trip to the beach is incomplete without a drink, right?

Right from the bright colorful murals that you see as you walk up the staircase, to the painted surfboards and dream catchers of the interiors, everything about this place is reminiscent of the hippies’ Goa of the 70s. The place recreates a shack from one of Goa’s beaches complete with reggae music, sounds of the sea, projections of the beach and actual sand in one part of the restaurant.
For starters we recommend the classic chips and dip or the crazy kalamari. The churiz pulao (goan sausage pulao) and the pao with pork vindaloo are good options for the main course. While ordering however, one must be mindful that the goan vinegar used in these dishes is an acquired taste and while they seemed to have reduced the amount to better suit the north Indian palette, these dishes are probably not for the unadventurous. If you enjoy sea food we recommend the ‘Prawns with love’ which is a Goan prawn curry, with rice. In addition to Goan Cuisine, the restaurant also serves North Indian and Italian dishes. End your meal with the Baga Bebinca or even the banana French Toast for which an eggless version is also available.
The perfect place to grab a drink and enjoy a relaxing evening with friends, Lady Baga offers you sea, sand, good music and great vibes, bang in the heart of the city!

This tiny jewel tucked away in a corner of Gurugram is a must try for those who want to savour authentic Goan cuisine. Bernado’s is run by a lovely Goan couple who give it a warm, homely feeling. It is a tiny place and could fit a little over six couples. The music, interiors and the aroma of the food transport us to a relaxing carefree summer on the beach.
Some of the dishes we enjoyed were the costelatas de porco or pork cutlets, the choris pulao, chicken zacuti, and pork sorpotel. The caramel custard for dessert is a nice end to a heavy meal, because it’s light and not too sweet. A great place to grab dinner and catch up with a friend.
