Homely restaurant + Maybe 20% more expensive to Shacks + 100% better service than Shacks

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... read more

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

Finding the Pousada by the Beach after the heat and clamour elsewhere is a wonderful calming experience. The food is delicious, beautifully prepared by Kevin with unexpected scrumptious morsels that seem to be his alone. The service from Joshua is perfect, kind and attentive. The setting in a delightful garden overlooking the beach is superb. This is a place not... More

This beach restaurant is in a league of its own. It is a perfect setting with lovely gardens set at the edge of the beach. Charming attentive staff and classy food prepared to order by Chef Kevin. It is an absolute must when visiting the area.
