Was here with my wife and was pleasantly surprised to see a rare shack open on the beach during monsoon. But that was just the first thing that was good about Posada by the beach. Tried a beef and rice combination that was delicious as were the cocktails. A complete bonus was getting to play with Biscuit - their 7... More

We went for lunch on recommendation. I think it was the best meal experience for me in Goa. The ambience is tasteful and carefully designed, yet is natural enough for the beach. We were welcomed by Josh who helped us choose from the menu. I noticed that he was careful with his questions and came up with good recommendations and... More

As we entered, we were pleasantly surprised at the hidden gem this place turned out to be. Most beach shacks we visited on our... More

This little gem is hidden away in a silent and far end of the calangute beach. No, its not on that ever crowded and filthy calangute beach, at least I figured that out. The beach is more of toward the candolim side. I found out this place on TA just before the day when we were suppose to return. We... More
