Come For The Vibe, Stay For The Food, The Perfect Mix Does Exist and It’s Called Caava!

Some places appear right out of a fairytale and Caava Courtyard in Anjuna is surely one of them. With raw thatched structures, lush greenery, and a rustic appeal, this place is a charmer right from its wonderland-like entrance.

As you walk down a narrow path surrounded by palms, you will notice a huge banyan tree that makes for Caava’s centerpiece-like attraction, and not just that, this big banyan also houses a treehouse dining space. Now isn’t that too cool? Where else will you get a chance to dine in a treehouse in Goa? Once you stop admiring that bit, which will take you a few moments, the other elements of the ambiance start taking your attention, cozy private cabanas, open-air seating, secret seating, a big pool table, and a lavish bar and so much more.

As Caava’s tagline says, ‘start a love story, it’s surely one of the places that make you fall in love with it at first glance, and your love can only grow fonder as you sit down and start breathing in the ambiance, more closely. For me, it’s been an ongoing affair ever since it opened its doors.

Coming to the food, serving global cuisine along with some North Indian delicacies, there can never be a disappointing moment at Caava concerning its food and cocktails. A great effort has been instilled by the entire team at Caava to ensure only the best quality products come onto your table.

The first thing that I tried on the menu was the Vietnamese Rice Paper Rolls and I highly recommend you try them out. Soft on the outside with crunchy vegetables on the inside, this one was a winner all through. Pesto chicken was another amazing dish that you must try.

Next on was the Chicken Olive Malai Tikka, this one simply melts in your mouth. This one is hard to get over with mildly spiced, tender chunks of chicken that are roasted to perfection in tandoor. It won’t be wrong to say that Caava serves the best Kebabs that Goa has to offer, whether it is Chicken Olive Malai Tikka or Gilafi Seekh Kebabs, or Galawati Kebabs, they have mastered the art.

If you like Kebabs, Caava is your best bet, serving you their most succulent, juiciest, and flavourful kebabs. And no, I don’t mean just non-vegetarian kebabs, their Paneer Tikka and Malai Broccoli are equally to die for.

For the mains, we tried Tawa Chicken, Khumb Malai, and Dal Tadka with some Malabar Parotas and Rice. I haven’t eaten a better vegetarian main course than this in a long long time, I mean it was so good that I ended up gobbling it down to the last bite, even more than the chicken. And coming from a hardcore non-vegetarian, it’s a big deal for sure.

Soon, Caava will be going big on breakfast and bakery items with their freshly baked bread and cheesecakes available to devour there and buy it off the shelf as well.

Coming to cocktails, you have to try the Caava special and Don Pablo for a perfect spiritual experience and you can always ask Sushant, the bartender, to mix up his favorites using the freshest of ingredients and house-made syrups.

With different performances over the weekend, Disco Divas Ladies Night on Tuesdays, and Latin Dance Nights on Wednesdays, live entertainments at Caava are always on point.

It’s a place that changes vibe with time, if you visit during the day, it offers you a serene setting to have some candid conversations with your family and friends or grab a cup of coffee and work, while in the evening, it changes into that perfect romantic spot where you can take your partner on a date for a dinner at the treehouse or a private cabana or enjoy live performances and dance the night away.

Caava is not just any restaurant, it’s a feeling, it’s a connection, it’s a vibe, it’s simply amazing. You don’t have to take my word for it, go and experience it for yourself because more than anything else, Caava is a mind-blowing wholesome experience!
