On my many visits to Calangute this is a must do lunch. Great location, terrific service and a menu that covers the best Goan delicacies with some continental selections. The peaceful location has a wonderful relaxed feel and the charming owner Neville is always around to help with selections or what's going on in the local scene. The food is... More

For many years I spent my holidays in the Pousada Tauma hotel and it is always the best time for me. There I enjoy the quiet atmosphere and don't miss anything. Sometimes I'm interesting to go to the beach and so it's great that the Pousada by the Beach is another part of the hotel, a shuttle service is available.... More

The ambiance was beautiful and so was the food. The presentation was superb and something new was served in every delicacies they serve. The person who took order was actually the son of the owner but he was so humble that you will be flattered. The quantity was just apt for one person and i loved everything.

Its a great place for relaxing. Menu is a bit limited but they are good in all the dishes including the side salad they serve. Personally, I hate shacks as service levels are pathetic (especially if you aren't looking to idle for a long time) and its there that fixed restaurants like Pausada add value - because they are there...

The location, the structures, the food and the hospitality of the owner and his son Joshua was so warm and wonderful. Must try is the prawn balchao and bebinca.

Brilliant restaurant and bar on Calangute beach. A permanent structure, set back from the other restaurants; Pousada is a gem! The traditional architecture and mature gardens are beautiful, creating a fantastic atmosphere to relax in. Also, due to the fact it is set back you are not constantly hassled by people trying to sell stuff on the beach! The menu... More

You are in Goa and would definitely visit Calanagute Beach but like any popular tourist place its crowded and filled with people. And right there between all the hustle and bustle is a calm Oasis managed by Joshua and kept by Biscuit. We visited the place after reading several reviews online and were extremely please with the ambiance and the... More
