How it all began…

My name is Vidushi and I had been living here for many years, when I noticed that there was one thing missing in this piece of paradise: a nice place during monsoon.  

I then noticed the cow corner old building, which was already aptly called cow corner, because of the sleeping cows in and around the building.  

My Austrian, culinary and architectural backgrounds all shine through in Vidushi’s Cow Corner restaurant that opened its doors in December 2018  

We completely renovated the building in its former glory and ensured it kept its authentic look and feel.  

As I am not a Goan, I cannot and do not want to compete with the Goan cuisine. Vidushi’s Cow Corner differentiates itself by making and serving real continental food – I personally know the Austrian cuisine inside out – and together with my Indian chefs we whip up and create better quality Indian dishes.  

We are your extended living room

It’s our mission to make (almost) everything fresh, and everything is homemade. We only use local and seasonal products, and strive for simplicity. We bake our own bread, we craft irresistibly delicious cakes, we make our own mayonnaise, and masalas.  

We do our best to fulfil every little wish. We even serve as a local post office for some of our regulars, by being a pickup point for online deliveries (Amazon, Flipkart, etc).  

Restaurant, and so much more

The smallest entrance gives way to a beautiful surprisingly wide and spacious hidden gem. You can hang out, read a book in a quiet corner, meet with friends or make new ones, and you can work from our place. With good wifi, quiet spots and power sockets – and a strong cup of coffee, we keep you productive. 

The restaurant’s pared-back, authentic Goan-style brasserie aesthetic – light pastel walls, bare tables, dangly lights and furniture made from local materials – goes well with the no-nonsense service, air-punchingly good food, complemented by a friendly atmosphere and polite yet amiable staff.


You could easily pass by Vidushi’s Cow Corner and have no idea of the delights that lay within. Whatever the weather Vidushi’s Cow Corner’s garden is a place to dine surrounded by foliage. Grab one of the terrace tables for a memorable meal. The side of the restaurant opens up entirely so even inside you experience the open air.

Very calm place with good music that fits well.The food is really good, especially the chicketln steak with the mushroom sauce but a friend also took the veg spaghetti meatballs which was very good as well so theres good veg options.The pork burger was pretty good but not great. Still waiting to try the pork chops and will update 🙂

Cosy place good was good but not as good as the price would justify. A bit cheaper wouldn’t hurt.Especially when I payed they made me pay for something I didn’t have. I only figured out to late and I needed to leave town so couldn’t go back but that shouldn’t happen. 🙁

This place is simply amazing! I am from Egypt and we were a group of 20 who wanted to eat international cuisine food. The food was really tasty and clean (mushroom chicken steak, king’s fish, shrimp pasta are highly recommended!). The staff were very friendly and the place is not expensive at all. Highly recommended!Make sure you have cash cause sometimes the POS doesn’t work.

A hidden gem on the way to Patnem beach. 💎 Don’t be fooled by the exteriors, the interiors are beautiful and spacious. We tried the chorizo pulao, the goan sausage spaghetti, the hand-cut fries and the schnitzel. Everything was excellent, and the servers were super sweet. Just don’t sit too close to the trees, the wood ants will definitely find you.

Brilliant place. Dont go by the name, because the restaurant opens up to a wide beautiful open area in the back. If you are a remote work person, this is a go to place.Food is wonderful and experimental. Highly recommended.

COW CORNER..A lovingly designed “feel-good oasis” in a wonderful shady garden. Excellent food, “Austrian” food (homemade with LOVE!!) Indian, as well as vegan/vegetarian food. The friendly service from the staff makes a visit special.I will gladly come again!

The Cow Corner is a lovely little place with both Indian and international menu options. The quality of the food is very high and they have clearly labelled vegan options. The bathroom is clean. They also give you filtered water for free when you arrive which is great. The staff are lovely and attentive. The music has always been great, there’s good Wi-Fi and there are pet cats which are very sweet to watch. The only con is that it’s quite expensive compared to the surrounding cafés and restaurants.

Vidushi Cow Corner is a legend in Patnem here, serving food from some time now. We tried Chai (which came in a huge container), one burger (which also was so huge that I couldn’t finish completely). Chai was very well made, earning our praise and burger tasted good.The service was top notch. The waiter who served us kept coming back to us asking us if we were comfortable and to take feedback on the food. He was very attentive and friendly which I liked.

This was my second time visiting here today, I remembered the place because when I came here just around covid, they served the best food, & they didn’t disappoint me today. The food was well made and very delicious, I tried their SEMMELKNODEL WITH MUSHROOM SAUCE which was very creamy and the highlight for today’s dinner, I also had their SPAGHETTI IN GOAN SAUSE, loved that too. To top it all, their CLASSIC BAKED CHEESECAKE was just the icing on the top. Definitely a must visit.

Highly recommend: Chocolate Mousse Cake and masala chai.As an ardent chai lover, I can confidently say Cow corner serves the BEST MASALA CHAI in the entire South Goa. It’s a small and very cute vibrant cafe amidst a countryside feeling with lush green environment around you. The staff is extremely polite and friendly! It’s a lovely place to take your laptop, read a book or just sit amidst lush greenery with occasional gigs and open mic that happen weekly.

The place is very atmospheric. The staff is very friedly and welcoming – advices on what to see in South Goa included. – The food was the best we had in Goa! You have indian as well as western style dishes. Everything was very fresh and there were plenty vegan options. Even the water tasted very good. Definitely go here if you have a chance 🙂

Just follow the cows down the corner to reach Vidushi’s Cow corner for a soulful experience, and delightful local community in south Goa. Vidushi is an amazing host. the interiors are rustic and tastefully done, the food and beverages are delectable.

Lovely place for afternoon hang out.Food tastes European x North Indian fusion. Good place if you are needing change from shacks food. Also if you like heavy dairy this is your place🧈I wished it was more in alignment with where it exists. Instead of taking over the space where cows always meditated (as mentioned in one of their brochures) atleast have vegan options for that guilt free meal🤏Staff doesn’t seem to know what they are serving but are smart enough to make you feel served.

Goa is a place where I have seen top notch hospitality in the country. Among those finest cafes, this one stands atop.Food was top notch. We tried a stuffed omelette and croissant sandwich, both were amazing. Big shout out to their staffs, who gave us a ripen cut mango as compliment since they did not have mango shake which we asked for.

Seeing the online review we went there for lunch but over all i think it is over rated.1.Chicken burger was very dry.2.Spaghetti which was made in goan sauce was not up to our mark we didn’t like the taste.3.Talking about the drinks I loved there hot chocolate nd watermelon juice 😋 👌Overall good place to chill.One advice i will like to give is that they should expand there menu .

Delicious food with very different taste. And a very breezy ambience. The prawn in coconut cream spaghetti was amazing. The coconut cookies were light and delicious. The only con was The service was very, very, very slow. Seems they were managing the new year bookings. Must visit.

An Austrian patron runs this lovely cafe with the help of some Nepali boys. The food is excellent and their company is even better. Amazing European cuisine if you want some. Everything is so good the food is made with love and care. Portions are huge. We had some breakfast items and everything was on point. 10/10 would recommend this to anyone who is coming to Palolem. Pls do visit.

Perfect ambience for a break. It’s soothing to just be there. The food menu doesn’t have many Indian or Goan dishes. The quantity and quality of food is amazing. You can enjoy your candle light dinner here.

What a quaint little garden restaurant catering to the needs of a very evolved global palette. Loved the mushroom sauce that came with the chicken steak. The ambience was beautiful.

Lovely place to relax and unwind from your hectic day . The food was delicious . I loved the chicken steak with mushroom sauce. Haven’t had a perfect steak in a while ..The weather was perfect and vibes was very chill .. totally worth it. I loved the place more because of the very friendly staff and patient and also because it’s pet friendly .. will surely visit again and suggest others too .. keep up the good work
