The food is good, no doubt about that. Toilets clean, the staff helpful, we didn't get sick, the place hygienic. You're away from the riff raff of goa. You have a Vista of the beach.

But for the price, which is a premium price - I was expecting something better, something out of this world, esp given the reviews. You pay premium for exceptional food, not good food. I can get good food from Udupi. Was disappointed in that respect. At pousada all I got was good food, at steep prices, which was not worth it in my opinion.

Again, I'm not dissing these guys. You get good food and a good experience. But at what price?

PS Wife insists on me writing that the dessert was REALLY good.

Dinner was absolutely divine, served by the brilliant Josh who was over to us delivering what we needed before we even knew it. Superb service in a lovely hidden beach front location. Food was the best we've had in Goa, recommend the Fish in banana leaf and the house Sangria ☺️! Was a little pricerer then other locations but was completely worth it in our eyes. 10/10 would go back. Maybe immediately tomorrow morning..

The food was really good and the guy who welcomed us very kind. I dont put 5 because we were served after 5 minutes ( it shows that it was prepared in advance) but once again it was good.

Thank you for appreciating our hospitality and the quality of the food we serve.

It seems our prompt and efficient service is like a double edged sword.

Some love the quick service and others wonder why we serve quickly.

It is simply just good planning. A short menu, efficient kitchen / service staff, etc. but for you to say "prepared in advance", NO WAY

We take pride in what we do and it is my wish to serve all those who visit as quickly as we can. I have personally experienced slow service in many outlets and decided to make sure that we don't make the guests who we host wait forever for their food to come out.

Finally, kindly don't compare the inefficiency of other outlets and think otherwise about us.
