Pousada is neatly tucked away by the beach front. It has a beautiful landscape with plants and trees well planted all over which makes the place really cool. We went for lunch and it was very pleasant although the weather was hot. When you park in the lane, it's a couple of minutes walk through the sand to actually get... More

Beautiful place on the beach. Great food, great ambience, you can easily chill and have a long lunch while enjoying the sea and sunset. The father - son duo make it more welcoming and warm place. The place is tastefully done and has a great ambience. Perfect for a quite lunch on the beach. Loved it and will definitely visit... More

The Top Ranking and positive reviews of all the satisfied guests does not mean that our restaurant should be affordable to all . Your description of our little restaurant as ……“, a simple beach restaurant, large terrace, simple seats and table”…… is spot on, most of our guests consider it as…..... “ simply elegant “….. our intention is not to...

I'm not a fan of this beach and wouldn't come here if it wasn't for this wonderful place. Set back from the main drag of sun loungers it's an unexpected and very welcome haven. The service is amazing, the food is delicious. It's relaxed and also lively, sunset is beautiful - it's just a great place to be and will... More

This place is right on the beach. Turn right when you enter Calangute beach from the Holiday street end. A family run place. Very helpful with guidance on the menu. A good view of the beach with ample shade cover. We have Goan Chirico sausage with local bread, peri peri kingfish, fish in banana leaf. All were yummy. The kings... More

This restaurant is not on everyone's go to list because it is only through word of mouth advertising that it's known to people. Genuine Goan food - made with genuine ingredients. An amazing location on the beach, two lovely dogs Chai and Biscuit to keep you company and personalised service - what more can you want. You must go her... More

Having seen this restaurant at the top rank amongst all in Goa, I was keen to try it out. However, it's early closing time of 7.00pm means that dinner is not possible here, only lunch. Finally when I managed, the owner Josh explained that this location is unlike the shacks, so there are to tourists around to justify opening later.... More

I traveled with a colleague to Goa for a 1-day trip, and only had one shot at picking a restaurant. After a morning of travelling around the Goa region we were very tired and hungry. The Pousada by The Beach was the number one recommendation, both from TripAdvisor and from friends who had visited in the past, so the choice... More

This place is a lovely little find, it's right on the beach feels very exclusive with excellent food. It's a little more expensive than other places on the beach but you get what you pay for. Everybody is helpful and friendly and the owner has two lovely dogs.
