Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Joanna from KoKo India who organised a perfect leaving lunch for me & a big group of friends. We all had very limited time & different ongoing travel plans, so the fact that she got us all together in the 1st place was a miracle. We were picked up from the... More

This was the first time I went on a trip for the second time :) The trip is very well organised and the food is out of this world. Not to be missed - treat yourself to a day off the beach, you won't regret it.

I participated in this tour after a rather hectic night of partying the night before. Luckily for me the hardest thing I had to do was be at the arranged meeting point on time. From there, our host Joanna collected us in our taxis, transporting us a short distance away (c.40 mins) to a picturesque 17th century Portuguese influenced mansion... More

We ventured off the beach for the 'lunch club' arranged by Joanna, not quite sure what to expect. A 45 minute drive took us to a stunning colonial Portuguese mansion, recently restored and with amazing grounds and gardens. The lunch was delicious - course after course of food which was both different from and far superior to the usual beach-side... More

I'm not normally one for big sit down lunches so when I was invited to join a group of friends going for a big sit down lunch at an old Portuguese palacio it was with mixed feelings and slight trepidation that I agreed. I'm very grateful I threw caution to the wind and decided to try something new as it... More

I had the best day, we were taken to a beautiful place called Palacio do Deaos. Joanna organised the trip and was super super lovely and made our day extra special. The food was beautiful and the location one of the most spectacular I have ever seen. I wouldn't hesitate to get Joanna to organise another trip. Eleanor

I have been coming to Goa for many years but had never ventured far from the beach before I did the Lunch club. I’m a real foodie and the whole Lunch Club dining experience totally blew me away. Everything that was put before us tasted totally fresh and delicious. I guess not many people get to taste home cooked portuguese-Goan... More

We had a wonderful day exploring the old colonial houses, brilliantly supported by our knowledgeable guide Jazz and her assistant Sheetal. Then there was the food fit for a king, the pumpkin pie, and green beans with coconut were to die for, but all of the seemingly endless dishes were superb and washed down with a super refreshing G&T!
