These two places are owned by Stewart who is an amazing chef! He will pretty much make whatever you ask him too and he is the nicest guy with a gorgeous little girl called Cookie! His 3 course meal is a bargain and the food quality is better than most other restaurants and shacks! Also cookies beach shack has the most comfortable sun beds on the whole beach, believe me I have tried most of them

I have been going to Goa almost every year, and it has become a tradition to stay in La Fontana and spend the day at Cookie's shack on the beach. Both are owned by Stewart, who is the most fabulous cook. With clean, basic rooms to sleep in, we just leave our gear in the small hotel and head to Cookie's shack on the beach and start our day with breakfast - spending the entire day relaxing, eating, drinking, swimming... Since La Fontana is right on the Baga-Calangute stretch, it's stones throw away from clubs. If you are looking for a comfortable, budget getaway, you cannot beat this. Even if you don't stay at La Fontana, Cookie's shack is a must visit. It's smaller than the other louder shacks, but Stewart is a great host - has good taste in music and can dish out mind blowing food.

This little place, down an alley off Tito's Lane, is a nice little find. I wandered into the restaurant on a random Saturday afternoon and we were the only patrons in the place. The friendly service and welcoming owner (Stewart) were a big plus on this rag-tag party street. The prawns were fresh, the steak was good, and the price was unbeatable. This is not a 5-star restaurant, but more like a 3-star diamond in the rough. The seating is outside, no A/C, nothing special, but I will definitely be back if I find myself back in Calangute (North Goa).
