Corta’s – The In-House Beach Restaurant of the Plush Intercontinental Resort at South Goa

If you happen to be holidaying in South Goa and wish to indulge in some lip-smacking Goan cuisine, you should definitely drop by Corta’s, the beach facing restaurant of the Intercontinental Resort, a five star luxury property run by the Lalit Group.

Stunning beach view from Cortas restaurant, Rajbaga Beach 
This restaurant is located on the Rajbaga Beach in Canacona district and in front of the Intercontinental Lalit Goa Resort area. The entire restaurant is very tastefully designed with a wood and haystack theme. This beach shack restaurant is also voted as the finest beach restaurant in Goa.

Cortas Menu - Really remember to try out Alle Belle 
During the months of November through April when this restaurant is open, one can experience the frolic of local cuisine of Goa along with an exotic range of sea food and grills made from daily fresh catch and vegetables. The food served here offers a wonderful mix of food styles from all over the world.

Cortas - Intercontinental's Beach restaurant on Rajbaga Beach 
The kitchen at Corta’s is influenced by the Portuguese and European cuisine,  with a rich use of tomatoes, potato and cashew nuts. However, the local coconuts are a favourite here and can be found in many dishes.

The kitchen cooks up great food 
The few delicacies offered at Corta’s are Chicken cafreal, pork sorpotal, chorizo, Pao, Lobster peri peri, pomfret rechado and prawn belchao. In terms of desserts, they offer the Alle Belle, Jenie’s port wine poached, Banana trifle, Bowl of fresh fruits with coconut whipped cream and Portuguese Custard Pie. Out of the dessert menu, my personal favourite is the Alle Belle.

Rajbaga Beach - the luxurious beach 
Overall, the menu is pretty well rounded with options for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian eaters. The menu spans Appetisers, Soups, Preparations from the Clay Oven, Rice, Noodles, Pasta, Breads, Grilled Food, Brew and Desserts.

A look at Cortas beach restaurant on Rajbaga Beach 
The restaurant offers 64 covers and is open for both lunch and dinner and offers special sun downer cocktails. This restaurant offers its guests a wonderful mix of great ambience and delicious cuisine.

Beach facing tables 
It’s rustic, yet creative look and its proximity to the sparkling Rajbaga Beach and the lapping waves of the Arabian Sea make it a wonderful and unique venue for a great dining experience. In terms of price, the place is slightly expensive, but totally worth it.

The sprawling campus of Intercontinental - the most luxurious hotel in South Goa 
I would recommend this restaurant with two thumbs up, but if such expensive places are not your cup of tea, then you can possibly check out these cheap city breaks.
