A trained chef, she brings in her family recipes to serve the best of Greek food and she does not compromise on the ingredients used either. Thalassa has changed the way the world perceives Goa and introduced the city to authentic Greek mediterranean cuisine & hospitality that’s complete with a beautiful dining experience.

Mariketty & her son Spiro came to India when he was less than a year old. Her entry into the food & hospitality scene started at the Arpora Flea market where she would sell some great Greek delicacies. She went on to start Thalassa in 2006 & is now one of the most adored restaurants in Goa.


Native to the beautiful Greek island of Corfu, Mariketty always felt a deep connection with India. Intrigued by the similarity between Greek & Indian culture she thought of Making Goa her home & has now been here for 27 years. Belonging to a family of Restaurateurs’, her instincts of creating magic through food spread & Thalassa Greek Taverna, one of North Goa’s most popular & successful restaurants was born.


Spiro, is also the star dancer for the Greek performances Thalassa has to offer. From cooking in his mom’s kitchen to a flourishing career of his own, Spiro has been doing this his whole life.

He believes in adding an Indian touch to Thalassa to make sure every visitor goes back home with pleasant memories.

What Our Customers Say

Read through the experience and memories that our customers have made with us.
Went to this place for evening meals and it was amazing. It give you the experience as if you are sitting in a ship. Very well maintained, nicely decorated and always full of decent crowd. Food we ordered was great. One can see Sunset while having food and for this reason, I would say reaching there around sunset time is the best option. Rajesh Nagpal


A Greek styled extremely popular bar and restaurant in Vagator is a must visit. Book your table at least a fortnight before especially for the evening slot. See the sun setting while enjoying your drinks and then see the floor shows which take place one after the other. It’s an altogether different experience!!

Loved it!!! The ambiance was too good, food was good and so were the drinks (we had mocktails, cocktails and beer). Only wish we had gone there during non-rainy seasons… the view was spectacular but because of the monsoons the place was covered up and we couldn’t get a sea-side table…
