Fantastic food, great people I normally hate fissh but here i ate it every day. There are a lot of fantastic places in Goa but here they balance perfectly the cross between Indian and Portuguese cusine. Also very reasonably priced when compared to other top restaurants in the area.

a bit overpriced. The ambiance was ok, the food was good but i feel it was overpriced. Brittos at baga is a much better option. The food there was excellent and good ambiance too. But i loved the ambiance here too. Only the food was very overpriced

If you are looking forward to savor some authentic scrumptious Goan food, Pousada by the Beach is the place to be. The food is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed. The father-son duo, Neville-Josh not only provided us with meticulous service but personally ensured that we had a good time. Kudos to them for keeping the Goan spirit alive.

Food and service were sublime, we were very pleased to meet and chat with the owner Neville and his sons who do a terrific job with their absolute gem of a place. The menu is short and... More

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
