Very friendly interaction with owners. Food looked fresh, specifically the salad part. Variety was limited, compared to many other restaurants, and the rates were disproportionately costlier. We travel all the way from Varca beach, and don't think will go there again.

The food, the drinks and the place itself were all very nice. Special thanks to Neville the owner and his son they were very nice. We also had Dinner at their other location in Pousada Tauma hotel which it feels like your walking in to paradise. Next time in goa we will visit this place for sure.

We visited this restaurant, which is on the edge of the beach three times during our stay here. It is a great place to chill, have a beer or anything else you care to drink. The food is very good and is a great way to experience the true pleasure of Goan food. We stuck to seafood and were delighted... More

We arrived here in a bunch of 12 for brunch - and were so glad that we did! It is just the perfect place to unwind with great local food and drinks, fantastic hosts, a great view and beach access. Not to forget chai and biscuit - the lovely pups who welcome you :) the lobster was my favourite -... More
