Simply Grills at Goa Marriott Resort & Spa claims to serve the "freshest and tastiest seafood, exclusively sourced premium meats, organically grown local vegetables and homemade oven-fresh bread". Situated at the Goa Marriott poolside, the fine dine restaurant provides the magnificent view of the sea on one side, the pool on the other and lush green resort gardens on the third.
As the clock strikes 6, the chefs take their position at the grill promising the guests tantalising treats. One can pick from a range of fresh seafood including Pomfret, Snapper and Lobster, premium
meats like Pork, Tenderloin and German Sausages, and Seasonal Vegetables for that exclusive local fix; mix and match with your favourite marinades like BBQ, Pepper Sauce, Cajun Spices or Goan Masalas, and tastefully accessorise with sides like Grilled Exotic Veggies, Mashed Potatoes and Tomato-Arugula Salad. Crabs are another all-time favourite that you can leisurely relish. And if you’re lucky, Fresh Oysters and free range Brazilian Beef may feature in the menu too!
I recently tried some items of their menu and my experience was amazing. I tried a range of starters like crispy Rawa Fried Mushroom, Chicken Cafreal, Choris Poie (local bread stuffed with Goan pork sausages) and Batter Fried Cauliflower. I also loved their Vegetable Pasta and Mini Fish Burgers. A special mention to the welcome drink - a concept that I really liked. A flamboyant Peach Bellini served in a testtube. The main highlight was definitely the items straight off the live grill. We could just pick from the range of seafood and meat on offer and ask to be prepared in a marinade of our choice. I tried quite a few, the Tiger Prawn Balchao and Garlic Thyme Squid were sure my favourite.
