The only good thing is the ambience

I have been to this place twice probably because it's in the only beach shack in walking distance from my hotel and both the times dissapointed with food. The pizza base of our ordered pizza was half cooked. The spice in my grilled kingfish was like it was spreaded post grilling. Even the bloody... read more

i've been to goa so many times, but its the first time i went to calamari; and since it was right next to the hotel, i actually went thrice. its right on the beach, and very nicely done up; there;s a cabana right on the deck, but not easy to get. in fact they seem snobbish about the nice tables...

I made Calamari my base on a recent holiday as I was in a wheelchair and it can be reached by road so I had little choice. I tried to visit other shacks but the soft sand made it impossible. It is certainly not the cheapest shack but it has wooden floors and very accessible sunbeds in a private enclosure.... More

Highly over priced and overhyped..... Don't waste your money in this place... There are a lot of better shacks just right next to this one... I left with a bad taste and a very big bill.....

Popular Shack on Dando (Candolim Beach), outside Santana Beach Resort. It is probably one of the biggest Shack on the Calangute to Aguada Beach stretch. Lively atmosphere and decor, live band plays most of the times, menu is quite elaborate and expensive, keeping in view the food quality/taste. Service and attitude could be better , may be they are hot... More

this restaurant, on the beach side, like a glorified beach shack, very popular with the tourists, great food- had goan fish curry and rice - flavourful and little spicy. great bar, live music - (we went on Saturday afternoon). loved the place. it's open air with a roof on top - not air conditioned!

Lovely shack, great views, lots of people, extensive menu ....go to Calamari if you want the typical Goa fun times. It's wonderful for people watching, dancing, having a good time but not the place to be if you want some private time. It's totally enjoyable and one can easily spend a full day at the shack , with its good... More

eight years ago this was a small beach shack selling great food. Now It is a large outfit, well-organised, well appointed and it still sells great food ( my pork vindaloo was as good as it gets ) but does it have the atmosphere it had eight years ago and can you still call it a shack. probably not.

A great ambiance on the sand and yet out of it and indeed very huge with seating capacity may be close of 300, been there on a Monday night with Celia a Goan portuguese doing solo ,sort of jazz which was a good soothing backdrop . Just perfect to chill out and take your own time, The food was good,... More
