I traveled with a colleague to Goa for a 1-day trip, and only had one shot at picking a restaurant. After a morning of travelling around the Goa region we were very tired and hungry. The Pousada by The Beach was the number one recommendation, both from TripAdvisor and from friends who had visited in the past, so the choice... More

This place is a lovely little find, it's right on the beach feels very exclusive with excellent food. It's a little more expensive than other places on the beach but you get what you pay for. Everybody is helpful and friendly and the owner has two lovely dogs.

Great setting - relaxing and watching the waves from a secluded spot. Very good food - we chose Goan style dishes and were not disappointed. The good was well presented and very tasty without being overly spicy. Good service. Prices a little on the high side but well worth the overall experience. A little tricky to discover the entrance. Will... More

We fumbled upon this hidden gem on zomato. What took us to the place were the exceptional reviews - we were surprised to see a plethora of 5 stars and wanted to see it on our own. And boy, did it not disappoint! Beautifully set up, stunning views and lovely goan food is on offer. We were served by Josh,... More

Me and my girlfriend ate here twice. The food was delicious. Josh gave us advice about what to order which was a great help. Sunset is amazing from the tables.

Food & drinks were fantastic, staff were very helpful, friendly and well informed. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and the views from there are outstanding. We had a late lunch and ended up staying to watch the sunset, one of our most wonderful experiences in Goa.

We were recommended this restaurant by an Australian couple who were going completely ga ga over it. Well this place is really good n although a bit too pricey the wide ranged menu representing several cuisines definitely makes up for it. Savouring a plate of succulent fish n chips over chilled beer with the blue sea yonder shall forever remain... More

Hi, loved this off-beat, off (our) beaten track place ......quiet and personal. Nothing like a contrived, overcrowded shacks in Candolim and Baga. My 10 year old daughter completely loved the prawn xacuti with the pao. My own veggie stuff was super spicy and a bit disappointing but nevertheless, the place was so enjoyable and the staff so helpful, that the... More
