Calamari was the only let down in otherwise a great dining experiences in Goa, this place was cold had no soul and very overpriced according to Goan standards and the food was just okay.

The food was ok, but not brilliant. The live music was ok, but far too loud - it was not a place to have easy conversation.

We visited this place on a Sunday having heard that they have a live band and the food is good. The place was crowded mostly with tourists staying at the nearby Taj and the other fancy hotels in the vicinity. I guess this place namely caters to them. The food was overpriced costing the same as it would at the... More

This was a disappointment in otherwise a very good Goa trip. Service was good, Food is overpriced and flavors are nil. I think most of the Goan restaurants have adopted to European cuisine and they have lost touch with their authentic Goan Cuisine. Food was very bland for our taste and nothing great. Despite we asking to make some dishes... More

This place was much better than the other beach shacks along the Candolim beach. Food was pretty good. Tried the Pomfret Fry (Rs. 1,000!!), Calamari batter fry, fish curry, fried rice and prawns masala. Although the preparations were good, it seemed highly overpriced. There was live music which was decent. If you want to visit a beach shack on Candolim,... More

We were advised to visit calamari beach shack food was good, but have to say service was not the best, the shack is clean and very well done but yet again i must say service was what let it down.

we have been going to the Calamari for 10 years now, every year it is extended and now is too large for a beach Shack..the food is now mediocre and the service abysmal if you are not a Bollywood Star or an Indian Cricketer you are invisible for service. I think Reggie the owner needs to take stock before it... More

Food was not great. We ordered king prawns. The prawns were kind of half cooked and not properly marinated in garlic. The apple pie was terrible and we had to cancel the order. If the owner can give proper attention to cooking then this place will rock. It has a fantastic view and location. The staff is very nice.

Great beach..Candolim! and the Calamari adds to the aura! It's crowded both by visitors and locals, but I had visited on a Sunday afternoon, when you might need to que up for a table It's a shack style joint with live music. A sufficient dance floor so that as you consume your food and drink..you can work it off to... More
