About Us

Our venture into Restaurants was honestly driven by the love for good food and to make those choices available to the consumer in Goa. In three years, five units boast best in class international cuisines. Two French Cafés, one on the waterfront promenade of Campal Panjim, and the other in the quintessential Assagao; two international food café’s Thirsty Bear operate in Bambolim and Goa’s tourist hub Vagator, add to our distinguished brand in Goa. Bennet & Bernard advanced internationally in its acquisition & start of business in Sintra Portugal. Toca Do Javali is a Goan- Portuguese cuisine restaurant. Black Vanilla has also been taken globally with its first international outlet in Portugal. 

Lincoln Bennet Rodrigues is the Founder and Chairman for Bennet & Bernard Custom Homes Pvt. Ltd. and Bennet & Bernard Gastronomy Hospitality Pvt. Ltd. He is a professional mariner by background with 18 years of work experience. At 19, he took to sea for commercial cargo vessels.

Lincoln is highly self-driven and amidst his career at sea, in 2013 took a simultaneous plunge to Business. He envisioned for himself and his family a stronger life quality. He chose “luxury custom homes” eventually loving it more and making it his life-time love and passion.

The Bennet & Bernard brothers collectively run business operations. Lincoln in his role has set the path for business expansion and Lindsay takes complete lead on converting paper to projects.
