We came at the tail end of the season and the tandoor was still firing which was a bonus. The dopiaza and the paneer tikka was pretty good. Good enough to come back for brekky the next day for some beautiful banana porridge, coconut pancakes and real coffee! Genuinely friendly staff which for whatever reason didn't seem to be a... More

We found this place by accident really, we asked the taxi driver to take us to a nice quiet beach in South Goa and he brought us here! Cant fault him really, the beach is beautiful with only a handful of shacks. We chose this one for lunch and the food was superb, as good as any other restaurant we... More

We have visit only restaurant and we did it many time for 1 week. Nice place on the beach where you can find the nirvana. Delicious tuna steak and fried calamari. Big cocktails, small prices. Thank you!

Tantra Cafe was one of the best places I ever stayed. The treehouses are unique, offering an experience like no other in Goa. CCTV monitors the communal passageways meaning your belongings are safe in the lockable trunks in the rooms, and the brilliant staff are always on hand to help with anything. Food and drink excellent. Wi-fi worked up amongst... More

This place has a great atmosphere, a lot more lively than most of the other places on the beach, and for once they know how to actually make good coffee, and the food is excellent for both meat eaters and vegetarians.

Came over to Tantra when staying in Palolem for New Years Eve. I absolutely loved the vibe of the whole place, the beach, the view, the crowd. It seems to be a quite older trendy crowd compared to other areas in Goa. The food and service were both very good and prompt, with a smile. I will be back!

The waiters at Tantra go out of their way to accommodate and look after you. Sangria, wasn't on their menu, but we purchased a bucket, taught them the recipe and after that enjoyed a beautiful bucket of Sangria every day on the beach. The food is fantastic at Tantra. The music is fantastic at Tantra. Their huts admittedly are a... More

I've stayed in many places around the world and never met better staff than the boys at Tantra. Ghatak, Kamlesh, Yadav and Yadu kept things ticking over superbly out front when I was there in winter 2013/2014. Staff in the kitchen cooked up delicious food always served with a smile. So many great nights in Tantra, it's no surprise that... More

This was my favourite place in 4 weeks of travelling down the west coast, and probably the cheapest! Basic but lovely huts right on the beach with everything you need. The staff are friendly, helpful and relaxed. No pestering here. The only downfall is noise.. We were out of season and were still kept up with loud music in the... More
