It required a bit of searching but is completely worth it. The owners are charming, informative and helpful. The food and the ambiance are also great. All in all a definite must visit when around that part of Goa.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay at the Pousada Tauma Hotel. We were shuttled to the beach daily at our convenience. The Beach Restaurant was phenomenal. Not only was the food prepared by Kevin & Joshua delicious, but it was also FRESH!!! From our fish to our juices, we were truly satisfied. In addition to great food... More

Being situated in a more private and secluded part of the beach, this lovely restaurant with sunbeds and beautiful medieval architectural pieces, offers a quiet corner for your family and friends. The food prepared by Chef Kevin and the owner's son, Josh, is to die for. Such fresh seasonal ingredients fully compliment the wonderful environment you will find yourself in.... More

I was in Goa for a cousin's wedding, and was informed that the relaxed lunch the day after the wedding madness was going to be at 'Pousada by the Beach'. I had never heard of it, but my Aunt and Uncle who reside in Goa are sticklers for good, authentic, quality food, so I was brimming with anticipation, waiting to... More

I have always hated the beaches on the strip in Goa. They are dirty, crowded and filled with men in their underwear creating a ruckus. And then a friend introduced me to Pousada, by far the best place in goa to chill, laze in the sun, have a great meal with a nice drink and be on the beach but... More

Had food here for lunch 4 times in my 5 day trip to Goa. I had vegetables and some indian stew, all cooked to the perfection. I was worried about getting sick in India by eating raw vegetable, I even tried raw vegetable at Pousada by the Beach, nothing happened to me(I have a sensitive stomach in general). Their Chef...

We hosted a lunch for family and close friends one a lazy afternoon at Possauda by the beach.. The place is awesome, its a bit set back from the other shacks making it nice and cosy, away from beach traffic and commotion. Rustic, tasteful and some greenery provides some foliage and privacy. The food, incredible - the best goan cuisine... More

And now that I've finished being snarky (although I don't think Neville, Joshua, Zoran and Kevin would mind. They didn't seem snooty), I'll explain further. Pousada Tama is actually a boutique hotel with a restaurant attached. The restaurant is on the beach on Calangute but it bears very little resemblance to your average beachshack because 1. It's got an entrance... More

While staying at the Pousada Tauma, we also spent sometime at the Beach Restaurant, run by the next generation of Proenca's, Joshua. Another piece of heaven, away from the maddening crowds...lots of sun lounges, umbrellas, or, if you prefer, just sip that nice cold beer with the accompanying awesome Goan fare and relax! Joshua is not only a great conversationalist,... More

My wife and me went to Pousada By The Beach last year in May 2013 and were surprised by the amazing hospitality provided by Neville and his staff.
