Goa Portuguesa was founded with the sole intention of serving and popularizing ethnic Goan food to the food-crazy Mumbaites. Today Goa Portuguesa has become a popular landmark for its authentic Goan food. At Goa Portuguesa, various sea foods on the platter includes a variety of crustaceans like crabs and lobsters along with other seafood varieties like, Prawns, Shell-fish, Shark, Pompret, Rawas, Bangda ,and a vast vegetarian fare of Moongacho Gathi , Alsandyache Tondak, Tender Cahew Sukhe (Money Back Dish) and so forth.
This place doesnt give the feel of Goan restaurant, food is of average quality, menu is mixed of Goan & Kerala dishes, if you have tried Goan dishes in Goa, you will not like this place. Off course if you are missing Xacuti & cafreal of Goa you can be here, but not with very high expectation.
I totally agree with my fellow burrper "foodieluv". This place doent serve authentic Goan food. I have visited this place many times, food was fairly ok but not Goan for sure. Being a Goan, I can totally judge the taste and it is not at all near to the Goan cuisine. It is more like Mangalorean (I think). because they serve upams and dosas which neither Goan nor Portuguese cuisine have for main course. .....Instead the Diva Maharashtracha which serves Marathi cuisine is authentic according to my Marathi frds. 2 stars because they claim that they serve Goan food but dont. Otherwise, place can be given 3 stars
