We visited Pousada by the Beach in November 2015. My husband and I were there in 2012 with our baby boy and had a fantastic time then. This time again, we made sure we visited the place . The experience this time around was even better with our boy now 4 years old, enjoying the natural beauty of the beach... More

Let me tell you how lovely this place is... So lovely that I created a trip advisor account just to write them a glowing review. This place is a true GEM and a must visit. Slightly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Calengute, Pousada by the beach is an unassuming restaurant and chill out spot. My boyfriend and... More

The food and cocktails were very refreshing (we had the strawberry mojito). Beach access and view without the chaos of the beach. Our wait staff was also helpful in recommending other safe restaurants in Goa.

Pousada is a great place, if you want to beat the crowds and the shacks and have a fine experience, the food is good and the service and hosts are excellent. A tad bit expensive when compared to the shacks, but you pay the premium for the ambiance and the privacy.

We went late afternoon and were the only customers in the restaurant. This meant that we received excellent service and had a romantic meal watching the sunset without any disturbances! The food was fantastic as were the cocktails, I would recommend the Chilli Mojito! If you go at lunch time I would recommend booking as it is extremely popular.

A fabulous place to spend time with your family. I would suggest all to go and taste the sumptuous food served with much warmth and love by Neville himself. One should not miss dear biscuit,the lovely dog, who greets all the guests with much enthusiasm and makes every meal more delightful. My two daughters fell in love with him the... More
