I liked the fish preparations, I didn't see any other hotel here like this one. It is the best. It was a pity that I discovered the place on the last day of the 4 days I stayed here.

Thought I would sit and have a drink here, it was a fresh pineapple juice and was quite nice. I was feeling hungry so decided to look through the menu, this was quite varied.

Order from the tandoori. Best chicken tikka and butter nan in town. Tried several different curries and could not fault them. We ate here on several occasions as it is possible to have full meal or just a snack or even just a drink. Staff very friendly and attentive.

The food is cooked to perfection. Best batter fried calamari I had in Goa and I also ate at 5 Star Restaurants. And it's on the beach, really cool. Taxes are extra on the menu prices, unlike most shacks, but then this is way better than most shacks.
