Delicious seafood

Calangute beachfront restaurant. Fantastic seafood. Ordered Kingfish fry in xacuti masala. Awesome taste , the xacuti masala is spicy, sweet as well as slightly sour and very tasty. Comfortable seating arrangement. Prices were on the higher side though, but to be expected due to its prime location.

I don't think we had a bad experience in India with food, but this place just had charm. The kingfish we had was excellent and staff are helpful and cater to any needs.

The quality of food is not as good as it was two years back. I wish they could improve the quality. However, it is a great place to go and relax amidst the Calangute beach. The staff are courteous and helpful.

Heard a lot about this restaurant and went there with lot of expectations. The food was great indeed. But, the way they treat is not so good. First we were sent to sit on the dining place backside even if we prefered to sit on beachside. It was a karaoke night in that hall. The music was not so good... More

Good restaurant, right beside Calangute beach facing the sea. Ordered prawn biryani, fish masala, apple pie and crab xacuti. Loved the crab xacuti and prawn biryani, the fish masala was okay. Quite expensive as the bill was around 2700/-. Since it was crowded the service was slow. A must go for the crab xacuti.

If you want to savour the fragrance of goa through your palate..then this is the place. Souza lobo is frequented by locals and tourists equally. The live goan and Indipop entertainment is icing on cake. Food is on costly side and waiters will try to make you order pricey food.Hence do some research in Goan Food. Crab,Squid and mussels are...
