Where to Eat In and Around Alibaug - Seafood, Buffets, and Bakeries

Find a place to stay

Alibaug faces the Arabian Sea, so you won't be surprised at the predominance of fish on local restaurant menus. The region's 2 most common cuisines are Malvani, the diet of the Konkan people of Maharashtra, and Gomantak, which is closely related to Goan cuisine. Both are renowned for dishes rich in coconut and spices.

Typical dishes

 

Traditional meals consist of mountains of rice, or wafer-thin breads known as bakris, paired with coconut-infused fish curry. Meals end with sol kadhi, a digestive drink made with kokum fruit, coconut, and spices.

Around Alibaug Beach

 

Beyond Alibaug Beach is a busy township that’s packed with popular restaurants. Sanman, on Israel Lane, is Alibaug’s most famed eatery. Diners order up fish thalis - big plates of rice accompanied by a fish curry that balances the sweetness of coconut milk with the bite of chilies. Shallow-fried slices of fish and tender prawns dressed up in spices form the heart of this substantial dish. For something lighter, stop by Mayur Bakery on Tilak Road to stock up on local favorites like khari, a flaky, layered biscuit, or savory snacks like the spiral-shaped chaklis.

By Murud beach

 

If you are visiting the beaches at Murud, a pit stop at Patil’s Inn is a must-do. The shack offers beach views and serves up the catch of the day. Try the big orange crabs - they come drenched in spicy gravy and go well with a platter of rice. Close by, those in the know gather at New Sea Rock to watch the sun set over Murud-Janjira Fort, while sipping sweet, milky tea and munching on deep-fried snacks.
