We went to Souza Lobo for dinner on a saturday night,this place was recommended by a friend for sea food. We though didn't eat sea food but had both veg and non veg food and have to admit the food was very good. Also since its by the beach it just makes the entire atmosphere very relaxed and pleasant. Like some other reviewers have mentioned it has seating on the beach and inside, we were siting inside and yet we enjoyed the cool sea breeze.

I was at Souza Lobo for typical goan cuisine. There are two options for the seating. One inside the restaurant with live music or outside facing the sea. I chose the outside and enjoyed my meal.

The sea fodd was fresh and tasted great
Drinks were cold and served in time
Live entertainment was great and the place was not as noisy as many other places on the beach

We were lucky to also witness a fireworks show at the other end of the beach

We ate at this great restaurant most nights. Although the road down to the restaurant is the worst in Calangute - very crowded and very dirty - don't let that put you off. To get there, you head straight down to Calangute beach and turn left on to the beach.

Souza Lobo does fantastic food (and cocktails!), the service is great and the views are lovely especially the Indian sunset. The food is Goan and Indian. The Fish Tikka starter are chunky succulent pieces of Kingfish (local white fish) marinated and cooked in a tandoor - delicious. We accompanied this with another fish dish, the Masala fried prawns are good, and then a couple of veggie dishes and a naan. We drank Kingfisher most of the time or if you fancy a cocktail, they are really good - the mojito feels quite Indian apart from the rum as it is made with local limes, mint and soda.

By the way the toilets are adequate - a couple of them being proper toilets!
