Noticed this small place in the early evening while walking around and found this to be an amazing place, nice but small choice of beverages, great service and a very relaxed place. Took a stool on the road side, but was just superb..Was getting filled...up while I was leaving, but look forward to going there again.More

It's a small, cozy, laidback bar stocked with great beers. Makes you realise Goa's not just about beaches

When nearly eevery place in Goa is trying desperately to exude "Goan" ambience it's good to tumble into something that doesn't suffer from overkill. We spotted this place brightly lit up when we walked past on 31 January Road, remembered some friends mentioning it, and...decided to go one evening. Except for the fog of cigarette smoke it wasa very pleasurable experience. I'm from the Konkan myself but had never thought of mixing kokum with feni, and was interested in how well the 2 flavours blended in our feni cocktail. The bartender was attentive in a casual kind of way, and it was interesting to see the mix of young men and women (locals) who came in alone and just sat down and joined the conversation. By the time we left there was a very animated group of them engaged in friendly banter. Now that's the kind of neighbourhood bar I wouldn't mind seeing around the corner in Mumbai!More

What this bar lacks in size, it makes up for in atmosphere! Friendly bartenders, fantastic beer and great music. I will definitely revisit this place!

We couldn't have asked for a more cool and welcoming place to relax after a day of walking around Panjim. Super drinks, and lots of young locals who are happy to share some time and conversation with you (if you want). Highly recommended by local...people - so it's the place to go before or after dinner. Lovely outside seating.More

It's a small place but you'll get unique home brewed beer and fenny. The fenny here tastes best in entire Goa. Loved the old world feeling.

It’s in the old historic quarter of Fontainhas. The seating is by the roadside since the bar is too small to seat people . There is a good selection of beer on tap . As the evening goes on the road in front becomes crowded...with people having a beer and catching up with each other . Luckily there is hardly any traffic on the road . The snacks like rissoles or chorizo bits are authentically Goan as are most of the people drinking there . This is a real slice of Panjim life .More

Joseph's Bar is this amazing hidden gem located in Panjim. After enjoying Fontainas, we decided to hit Joseph's for a few things. Gundu personally makes your drinks and makes sure you have a wonderful time. The drinks are cheap, the music collection is lovely and...it's the perfect place to hit for a relaxing time. Anytime I go to Goa next, hitting Joseph's is a must!More

After putting up with Kingfisher for several weeks, it was great to find a proper beer at last! Ok, it's a bit more expensive, but well worth the extra if you're a beer drinker. I'll try the cocktails next time. Very nice atmosphere to the...place as wellMore

It's a neat hole in the wall (to be fair - a little larger than that with about 10-12 seats) - lovely little neighbourhood bar tucked in one the alleyways of Fontnainhas, Panjim. The whole essence is pretty European with oodles of charm thrown in....Went there pretty late at night and grabbed the Eight Finger Eddie, a local Goan beer, which is a pleasant enough to glug down the throat. Maybe another time another visit and will spend some more time here, getting it's famed Feni cocktail and small eats.More
