Site Visitor Review of Govinda Restaurant

A wide range of typical plates of the Mediterranean, cooked as 60 years ago, and many present proposals that will make you enjoy like never: a wide variety of marine starters, fish in the oven or salt, "suquets", "fideuas", "paellas", codfish. Desserts of our own elaboration and an extense wine cellar with more than 300 references. You can taste all in a privileged outdoor terrace with the sun of the Mediterranean or in any of our two inner dining rooms.

Site Visitor Review of Govinda Restaurant

We found the waiter attentive. The Thali was excellent though not cheap. There was enough for two so I helped my husband out. I was disappointed with my dish but I had made a mistake ordering. The waiter went out of his way to make some paneer to improve it though. It's a little disappointing to find the menu of the day was Spanish and not Indian as we were set up for spice and it was good value at about €10.00. I understand the locals want Spanish food, but perhaps & choice of either Spanish or Indian would be better. My advice would be have the Thali and ask for it spicy if you are English.
