“There's a reason why all the locals go here”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

Nice restaurant! We ate here once. Tried the calamaris and the wonton soup. I ordered it twice because it was so good. Just really nice fresh food for a good price. What more do you want? Service system could be better. Waiters were spending to much time talking to each other.

“Johncy for a beach experience”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Dinner one night, was at Johncy’s at Benaulim. A mix of Continental, Chinese and Goan cuisine. We opted for the Goan delicacies – Kismur (dried prawns salad with onions, tomatoes, chillies...); Mussels Goan Gravy, Fish Ambotik, Melt in mouth Fried Calamari in Butter Garlic, Chicken Vindaloo, Prawns stuffed in Papads and ended with an Irish Coffee. The evenings are cool with invigorating breeze at the beach. Johncy’s, Roger’s & couple of other shacks at the beach have candle lit tables which are exceedingly romantic.

“Great Location & good food!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

This is one of the most popular food joints on Benaulim beach and it deserves to be so. The restaurant serves a wide range of food items and their seafood options are excellent. The food is fresh and has a local flavour. Crabs, prawns, the local fish, this restuarant serves everything. Also, the location is great, as it is right on the beach and has a good environment. You can relax, have a drink, enjoy a good meal and take in the atmosphere. The place is packed all the time. Its a great place for all kinds of travellers be it singles, families, or couples. A highly recommended eating joint.

“Almost Excellent...BUT!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

My taxi from the airport dropped me at the beach Car Park and I went to Johncy's for a pot of coffee...They then willingly agreed to keep an eye on my suitcase while I looked for accommodation which I quickly found. I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and returned there that evening for beers and an evening meal. At least three of the staff recognised me from a few hours earlier and asked me if my accommodation was OK. I cannot fault the service - the ordering of the food, the bringing of the food (for which I did not have to wait a long time) and the general attentiveness of the staff (there were plenty of them!) to customers' needs. The food quality and the amount were fine and the prices were affordable - BUT! the bringing of the bill, the taking of my money and the bringing of my change all took a long time. The cashier's desk seemed to be tucked away at the back, away from all the action, and this may have helped to cause the delays. I noticed that the Manager gave a "pep talk" before the evening rush started and the whole business of bill/change is probably something about which he should talk to them. They were closed on Good Friday and Easter Sunday although it seemed that all the other similar establishments in the area were open for customers.
