Food can do so much more than fill up your stomach! So naturally, the whole modern dining experience has been transformed to offer the customer much more than just tingling taste buds. Today we review for you ‘A Reverie’ – a little oasis in the middle of Culangata, Goa that brings to you a truly magical dinning experience.
“A Reverie is our love child; so we have adopted a little theatrical and (most of all) fun approach to food.” – Aakritee and Virendra
Elevating Goan cuisine to a global level, A Reverie serves up food that’s evocative, thought-provoking and tells a strong culinary story. There is nothing ordinary about this restaurant, starting from their open air sitting with private gazebo to live music and an exceptionally innovative menu.
The quality of restaurant resonates through the loyalty of its patrons from celebrities like Rahul Gandhi and many more who frequent the restaurant whenever they are in town. Personally being a vegetarian I feel I miss out on a lot of Goan food, but this is one resturant that guarantees an exceptionally elaborate vegetarian menu.
