Our No 1 Restaurant in Goa, simply the best food and best service, we have been dining there since 2003.

Anthea and I have been going to the Sun & Moon since 2003, so we have ate there many many times, great food, great service and lovely sunset views. We have never had a bad meal ever!. Over the years the food and service has been perfect. The restuarant was run by Sanjay and his mother (who sadly... read more

More of a beach shack than an actual restaurant, nevertheless me and my family had an absolutely brilliant time. The food and drink was very very good and unbelievably cheap! We had a party of about fourteen but the food was all served at roughly the same time, all cooked thoroughly and piping hot. The shack had a music system... More

Stopped in here to meet some friends whilst staying in Goa. The staff are really friendly and really attentive. Given that it was out of season they really enjoyed spending time chatting with us and enjoying some banter. The food was great, however it's a small kitchen so when you're a large group of people, relax with a beer and... More

We had a lovely lunch at the beach shack. There was a huge variety of food including Goan Chinese and European. All freshly cooked in the traditional manner and free wifi!

You might almost miss this place if you are walking along the beach. This is 'off' the beach and more of a restaurant (as the name suggests) with a sea view. The menu is very similar to most shacks though. Very elaborate with russian translation thrown in for good measure. Seating also is very shacky. Food and beverages are good... More

We have been staying in benaulim for 3 years and despite several recommendations we never seemed to get round to trying this restaurant. This year we came out with our daughter and son in law and decided to try this for an evening meal. The food was great, we had chinese and really enjoyed it. The setting is lovely and... More

The Sun and Moon have opened another restaurant in Benualim in addition to the beach shack. Situated just outside the Royal Goan Beach Club and the Taj Exotica the small restaurant is equally as good as the shack on the beach (except the toilet facility!) Food is excellent and the service great service.

We have bee going to Sun and Moon since our first time in Benaulim in 2000 and the quality of the food is as excellent as ever. We've got to know the owner Sanjay very well and in recent years, his wife Meena. They, and all the staff make you feel so welcome. We have tried many delicious curries and... More

We returned to Benalim again after a 3 year break. The Sun and Moon is as good as ever. They still serve the best prawns I've ever eaten. The service was attentive and friendly. We booked a table for our wedding anniversary and they even gave us a card, knowing that we ate there often during our honeymoon. They made... More

This is a well run better end restaurant serving excellent Indian food with a great atmosphere, the welcome is professional and friendly with nicely presented tables and cotton napkins. I have a problem recommending any particular dish because every time we went here it was excellent, good clean standards throughout well worth a visit
