“wonderful food in beautiful settings!!!!!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

this was without doubt the best lunchtime meals i had during my stay in Goa. it was worth the 40min walk along the beach from Candolim. i tried at least 5 different dishes, and they were all lovely, my favorite was the goan chicken X my other half loved the veggie soup. the veiw is beautiful n peaceful for Calangute beach. the garden is beautiful n well kept n the staff brilliant, the chef knows how to cook!!! this place will be the only reason i would come back to Goa, and then i would eat there everyday for 2 weeks washed down with a kingfisher or 2.

also a big thank you to the boss............

“Very good food and still better service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

You would not hear a know for any of your requests......

Right from the yummiest cheese pasta for our two year old daughter to virgin monitors one in a certain style for my wife.. Every request was beautifully executed.

Ordered grilled prawns and veg Goan curry.. Great food and personalized service by the owner.

Would return for sure

“A slice of Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

You will not find a better slice of heaven in the middle of the 3 ring circus the makes the Goa Beach scene. Pousada by the Beach is totally private with comfortable sun-bathing areas in a beautifully landscaped area with clean bathrooms, shade, great food, great service, cold beer and a friendly dog all tucked away on a clean section of beach. I spent 3 days resting and relaxing by the sea at this place. I was treated like a KING.

“Elegance on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I would agree with others that the standard of this restaurant perfectly reflects the high standards set at the Pousada hotel itself. The setting is elegant and an oasis on an other wise busy beach. The service is attentive but not intrusive and the quality of the food is excellent. A great and varied menu, without being overly large, ensures a high standard of quality food and presentation. I personally became additcted to the carrot and coconut salad and the peri peri calamari. Add to this a relaxing setting and a wonderful view and who could ask for more? Add to this a charming owner, Neville, and an apperance by Biscuit the dog who is a star in his own right (although watch your shoes as he is rather partial to a game of shoe chase!) and you have the perfect holiday experience.

“Our Lunch @ Pousada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were on our trip to Goa in Dec 2012 and decided to try this place since we read about it in Tripadvisor.

We were there for lunch. We tried the fish wrapped in banana leaf and another Goan fish curry (can't remember the name). The food tasted really good and the owner of the restaurant was very friendly. We enjoyed our lunch sitting very close to the beach and enjoying the sea breeze.
