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 was disappointing. Specially fish was not fresh and not properly cooked. We had Kingfish. Simple thing like fresh lime soda was also not properly made. Staff was not bothered. They in fact had 2 boards which rightly described their attitude towards customers.

Its the best bar lounge on Baga Beach. This is a place with excellent food and drinks. Little heavy on pocket for couples but in a grp its worth it, they have an excellent range of food and drinks to offer. The food tastes gr8. The staff is friendly and approachable, They offer hukka which is the best to enjoy... More

I loved Zanzibar. The staff were very friendly, the food was good and the toilet was clean! It was everything you could want in a beach shack and my favourite on Baga beach.

One of the overpriced and unhygienic places in Baga. The food is extremely unhealthy, the staff is impolite and no amenities are available. AVOID as far as possible. There are a plethora of shacks available nearby with everything better.

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...!!!

Thank RutaRG
