Nothing Fishy about Fisherman’s Wharf.. Only Good Food and Good Vibes!

- Advertisement -

Located in the by-lanes of Panjim City, you would come across one of the most popular restaurants of the current times, The Fisherman’s Wharf. It is nestled in a huge and spacious Portuguese house that is exemplary from the word go. The place has multiple seating options, both indoor and outdoor and the pathway boasts an open kitchen that is a delight to watch.

 The hustle-bustle of chefs dishing out culinary delights and the aroma of food being cooked alone are enough to keep you intrigued. The way each room and wall is decorated with art and artefacts that reflect true Goan-Portuguese culture is hard to miss. You cannot help but admire them while you patiently wait for your food to be served.

As we seated ourselves in one of the air-conditioned rooms, chef Joel personally came to check on us and gave some recommendations on what dishes we should try from the menu. Although I have been a regular and some dishes are already a part of my favourites, it’s always good to know from the man behind the brand to ask for his suggestions.

Fisherman's Wharf 1

Fisherman’s Wharf is especially known for its fresh sea-food preparations along with local Goan delicacies and offers a wide array of dishes from multiple cuisines as well.

For starters, we tried Fish Tikka, Butter Chicken Bao, Southern Fried Fish and Chilly Paneer.

Let me give you a word of caution, the Fish Tikka and Butter Chicken Bao are definitely going to explode a burst of flavours in your mouth, so just be sure to take a small bite and let them tingle your taste buds slowly and gradually.

The Fish Tikka was perfectly spiced and charred to perfection and makes for a perfect appetizer for a lazy afternoon or a charged-up evening. The Butter Chicken Bao is the most suitable example of dishes where fusion works beautifully.

One of the most sought-after preparations of Indian gravies meets a super soft Chinese bun and together they create a riot of flavours. This is for sure a dish you must try, and trust me, you won’t forget it ever.

I mean I keep going to Fisherman’s for this again and again and again. The Southern Fried Fish reminded me of cafés in the Fort area of Kochi that serve fresh catch and fry them in front of your eyes. The flavours were on point.

Coming to mains, Chef Joel who is a master of Italian and Goan culinary cuisines, dished out a creamy Chicken Penne Pasta in the white sauce which was to die for and must be given a try.

Next on our table was a traditional prawn curry with rice and with Fisherman’s Wharf you can be assured of getting the authentic Goan curries to savour. It was to perfection, and I am sure you would enjoy it as much.

For me, continental food is something I can never get enough of, so I also tried Country Fried Chicken. Marinated chicken breast, crumb fried and served with a side of fries and garlic mayonnaise. The garlic mayo is like magic that elevates the taste to another level.

With a fully loaded bar that crafts out amazing cocktails and mocktails, you can never have a hard time finding your perfect match for the food at Fisherman’s Wharf. Most days they have live music and sports screening to are a regular part of the entertainment at Fisherman’s Wharf.
