The place was decorated very nicely. Food was average. I ordered king fish and did not get fresh fish at all.

We got attracted to the setup of the restaurant at night with all the lights, so we decided to eat there and the google review was not so bad either. On the Saturday night, they set up the tables on the beach at space them...out. There was a live band. My vegetarian starter (Stuffed mushroom) smelt of fish and I could not eat it. Plus there was too much oil. Go there to have a drink and enjoy the evening, vegetarians can avoid the food.More

Had refreshing drinks here with live music which was too good. Staff is good and helpful. Order takes some time.

While travelling from Palolem to Calangute , we thought of having a look at a beach and then having lunch. We decided on Betalbatim and going by the reviews, Magzika seemed to a perfect place to have lunch. I have no issues with the location,...views , ambience etc but was unlucky with the food. The cocktail to start with was okay but it was the Roti which spoilt the mood. We felt that it was prepared from a dough which was not fresh and pointed out to the waiter --- he of course said that it was fresh. We did have some amount of tummy discomfort for a day or so. It is difficult to understand how one can go wrong with something as basic as a tandoori roti. The cheese garlic Naan looked good but was just about passable. Among the main courses, Chicken Cafreal had a watery gravy and though not bad, it was nothing much to talk about. I have had the opportunity of having Cafreal several times in the past at various places , so comparison was natural. The paneer dish however was fine. We loved the blue fish decor on the plates, tastefully done. I have no complaints against Anjan from Assam who served us --- he was well mannered , polite and courteous. This is my personal experience at apopular place and I can at best rank this place as average as far as only food quality is concerned.More

Loved the vibes at this shack.. they always have something extra to offer, fire shows or live music. And the beach is awesome as well 💕

As shacks in Goa go, this one goes! All the usual trappings were there - the beach loungers and umbrellas, the wooden plank floor shakes as servers/guests walk by, the breeze, the sea, beach...aahhhhhh The one meal we had here was really tasty. Fish Curry,...Prawn Balchao, Greek salad and some lemonade - only in Goa. I hadn't carried any money and we told them beforehand. The digital wallet wasn't working for me. Prajay Kalear, the owner, was very relaxed about it. "Pay later". That's Goa and magzika checks all the boxes.More

It’s a beach shack near Beleza Resort... They do customised lunch/dinner for the couples/family... The food is awesome.... Their cocktails are the best and service is very prompt... The person Jack really helped us to made our celebration super special... He’s ‘Jack’ of all trades......

It was our first night in South Goa and was the best shack outside Beleza Resort. Good service but the cocktail was a bit on the stronger side (Long Island Iced Tea). Golden Fried Prawns and the snacks were pretty good and reasonable. The one-man...band and DJ was quite a linguist where he managed to sing songs in at least 4 languages.More
