Golden Net, Keys Ronils resort

Ronil’s was started way back on 5th December 1987. Back in the day, they were one of the few hotels in Goa. Over the years, while a lot around the resort has transformed, the Golden Net restaurant at the hotel has remained pretty much the same; serving authentic Goan specialities. Taken over by the ‘Key’s’ group, The Golden Net still serves a wide variety of authentic Goan dishes with recipes dating over 20 years ago, surely got me nostalgic!!
