“Awesome food ,but rather noisy place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Had the pleasure of enjoying sea food at this wonderful place.

The food is divine. Prawns in it's varaiety of ways are the best. Chicken dish was average , better avoided.

My only problem is the high volume at which music was played, preventing conversation with the
Other guests. Rates are reasonable . Ambience very good. Staff was very helpful, though time taken to serve was more , probably due to the large number of guests.

“Robbery in broad daylight!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The food is bad, the service worse, it is an unmasked attempt to get your money without giving you any value in return.

“Good! Service, ambience and veg+non-veg food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Joecon's - like most other restaurants close to the beach - is better known for seafood and non-veg than vegetarian fare. Yet, as I did with Martin's Corner - and many other shacks now - I found that their veg fare was also very good and though the options were relatively limited, they have a decent range of North Indian as well as Chinese for veggies.

They are somewhat pricey and in the peak tourist season, they are even pricier. The ambience though is very good and they have an open space that makes it kid-friendly. They also have a live band playing some times and an open-air dance-floor.

This place can get a little noisy when the music is playing and at times there's the whiff of seafood in the air. I am okay with the seafood whiff but the noise I could do without.

Overall, I would say very good ambience and a good offering of veg as well as non-veg food. Slightly pricey but if you're eating out once in a while, it's well worth it.

“Average!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

Came here with great expectations and went back with a very average food experience. The goan cuisine has been forgotten here.
