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.

Situated on baga beach on busy location near to water sports. Beach in that area can become very busy. Zanzibar is a lively shack with lots of music. Food is good but portions a bit small. Service was slow bit staff helpful and friendly.

I hung out at this bar shack the most in my time in Goa. The food was consistently good, sometimes the staff were not attentive but that was only a small problem. There is a staff there who is very good at massages. He has been working as a masseuse for over 9 years. His starting rates were way too... More
