Savor Restaurant & Bar – A Celebration of food located at Ponda – Margao Road,Ponda, Goa is a 4000 sq.ft. popular restaurant serving traditional Goan, Maharashtrian and coastal cuisine.
The brand’s philosophy, which blends global inspirations with local cuisine can be subtly noticed and extends to the décor. What stands out in the design scheme is the different treatment given to each area, mindful of the varied clientele expected to patronize the restaurant. Moreover, there is variety in seating and décor, which makes each visit to the restaurant a different experience.
The Restaurant is housed in a ground-plus-one-storey structure styled in contemporary charm.
The stunning bar counter with its facia highlighted with half-cut liquor bottles in fiber which are back-lighted with LEDs is very eye-catching and ushers guests on entering the restaurant.
The use of earthly colours throughout the space – the warm light and dark brown of the wood, white walls, the vibrant touches of yellow, red, green creates a warm yet contemporary spatial experience.
The circulation of the restaurant is made easy and swift by defining it into identifiable sections – kitchen, the bar counter, the pub, family dining area, a banquet and an outdoor patio dining area.
The design flows into the outdoors, thereby maintaining a sense of continuity.
Several artworks – paintings and photographs by artists, also contemporary in nature, hang from the walls at the restaurant.Mural above the main door is made of actual spoons and forks.
Lighting in the restaurant is done such that it harmonizes with the furniture and creates contrast, highlights, sparkle and gives a general warm glow adding exuberance to the space. Hanging lights in the double height entrance porch made from coloured glass bottles glisten mutely.The delicate back-lit, laser-cut veneer work on walls & columns act as highlighters and add on to the beauty of the space.
The restaurant is designed easy for maintenance by having tile-cladded walls up to three feet.
A Goan is said to be born with music in his blood and music literally follows him from the cradle to the grave.Pub area wall is dedicated to famous musicians by having their ceramic plate potraits.
At the time when the restaurant was coming up Sachin Tendulkar’s retirement was around the corner, so we dedicated a wall of our restaurant to him by having a painting of his done on the wall. This area has a screen on which live screening of matches of various sports are played making it a perfect dining space for sports lovers.
Kitchen is well planned keeping in mind the equipments required and working ways of the kitchen staff.
On the first floor, the wall in front of the stairs, painted red with a gold leaf painted tree acts as a feature wall for this space.
Family dining area on the first floor gives warm, cozy feel and privacy to customers. Banquet for small scale parties and corporate seminars occupy one corner of the restaurant on first floor.
