“great veg food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

yes there is great veg food
we stayed at calangute and ate 5-6 meals at this place and tasted a few places around (we are pure vegetarians so found it lil difficult to get good food) also. but this hotel by far is the best. also enjoyed a night of live music with dinner (live music also at many other places around). the food and service both excellent and considering it was veg food, i am sure non veg must be great too. the staff was helpful and gave us info regarding touring goa.
overall a great place for veg food.

“we return every year!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

Eat here whenever we are in Goa, even stayed here in 1979!! The quality of the food has remained consistent, the variety of cuisine is excellent...the Goan food is first rate! And the situation can't be beaten.

“Not bad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

this is one of the few restaurants right on beach (its not a shack) went for lunch with family (though at 4pm), the vegetarian options are limited ... but taste of continental food was good! service was also quick and nice... view of the calangute beach is just wonderful from here.

“Lovely Goan Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

We had a great night! We went to this restaurant by an indian friend's recommendation.. and he has good taste!
The restaurant was busy and the ambience relaxed! The food was unique to us and that was awesome. to have something we have never tasted before... and it tasted good!!
I would recommend this restaurant to any traveller to Goa. (Don't just stick around in your hotel/resort restaurant). Try the local cuisines and seafood:)

“Dine by the sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

I have been coming to Souza Lobo for last 6 years and have always found the food & service to the mark. The starters (Russian salad & honey potato) are good and the Goan main dishes are excellent, though the menu has a huge variety (I usually prefer local cuisine when I travel). Drinks are not too costly.
A chance to sit outside at dinnertime and listen to the live music in the background while having a meal near the sea; what could one ask for more?
