Tripoto's Recommendations for Thalassa Goa:

Chicken Gyros - Indulge in this delicious preparation, made from slow cooked meat in a vertical rotisserie and served with pita bread, salad, french fries. You'll absolutely love the tzatziki - a cold creamy sauce made from yogurt, cucumber, garlic and spices.

Kleftiko - A meat-lover's delight, this is sow cooked lamb in the oven, served with grilled vegetables and potatoes cooked in the juice of the lamb, topped with feta cheese.

Prawns Pastitsada - Dig into a soulful bowl of Greek & Italian fusion, and let your tastebuds roll, as you savor the authentic taste of fresh tomato with basil and prawns!

Don't Forget To Make a Reservation!

Thalassa Goa is usually pre-booked for a visit around sunset or later, hence, we'd advise you to book a table at least a night before you visit, especially if you’d like to visit around sunset.

Having said that, if you're doing for lunch, you can find a place even without reservation - yeah, the crowd starts gathering in late afternoon.
