Great for sunset drinks

I have been here twice as I find it is a great place to watch the cricket and sunsets. Didn't eat here so not commenting on the food. Service was good!

The food and drinks are fine. The service time was not high. The service quality is not great but we did not face any issues. On the whole an average place.

At one point of time i would recommend this place. But please do not make a mistake to go to this place. Its not the same. They dont play good music plus the food quality is pathetic. there were alot of bugs as well around the table. I made a mistake thinking its the same as yesteryears but its not.

We walked from Brittos to this place for a dinner but saw absolutely none seated and went to another shack. We happened to visit again post-lunch and there was decent occupancy then. Ordered a few snacks which tasted good. Had a few drinks. The staff is not as courteous - the pricing is not very stiff but higher than average.... More

A friend back in Pune recommended us this beach shack. We had a dinner at this beach shack in our Goa trip. The Location is awesome, upfront on the baga beach near the Tito's Lane...!!! Even the ambiance is great with candles lit over all the tables...!!! Food is average and Service is very slow...!!!

One of the "up market" shacks on Baga beach. Excellent view, good food and good service. Rates are pretty reasonable for the quality of food and service. I would recommend it over other general countless shacks around.

Liked the Ambience Did not like the cocktails though. The food was pretty decent. Nice Place to Hangout on Baga Beach but travellers can try out other shacks too if they have more time on hand

This is one of the good shacks among the line of restaurants at bagga. We ordered for a grill king fish and it was very well prepared. They had good choice of drinks in their menu. Overall a good place to be.

Zanzibar is among the many shacks that line up the stretch on the baga beach. Really loved the quirky notes written inside. Friendly and courteous staff and good food. The only con is it closes around 1 in the night while there are some that are open till 5 or 6. Would visit again. Equally great for friends or family.

There are several shacks on the beach right from calangute to baga. By far, this is the best shack. We have been going here since many many years.
