The food here was really good and affordable....even the drinks were much cheaper than North Goa. We went there twice once during lunch and once for dinner. I had king fish masala and rice in lunch and I must say that I was really impressed...with the taste. However the behavior of the waiter who served us was not up to the mark. We revisited this place during dinner and I was really excited to see the limited White Walker edition of Johny Walker brand in their menu and that too at a reasonable price. Honestly I stayed in different parts of Goa for over a week and never found this particular edition in any menu and this was also unavailable in the liquor shops over there. Obviously you can imagine my excitement to finally get my favorite drink here. This time we ordered Chinese and babinca with our drinks and really enjoyed our dinner with the cool breeze of the sea. Thankfully the waiter who served us this time behaved properly. If you are around Benaulim in the evening do try out their food and drinks specially their king fish masala. But yes I feel that their waiters need to be a little more cordial towards the guests.More

This place still stays the same, guess they look at catering to mass crowds. We tried the mutton vindaloo this time and the meat smelled and that can be put off truly.

Prawn dishes are superb here. All the dishes are reasonably rated. Alcohol is also not expensive. Efficient and polite staff. Great food.

Visited Johncy on a weekday morning as it was one of our go to place because of service and affordability. Unfortunately the service has gone really bad and looks like they have hired some manner less waiters. This is the only place in Goa where...in stead of showing hospitality, the waiter misbehaved with us. The manager came for rescue but the damage was already done and the waiter also was too adamant and rude to not to admit his mistake. We had to walk out.More

Wonder how many moslem clientele you have that you proudly serve Halal chicken? I wanted to have chicken but could not . Had to stick to sea food ...which was great . Please do a review and check how many moslems come to your restaurant...visavic others . DO NOT FORCE A MINORITY DICTATORSHIP OVER A SILENT MAJORITY !!More

We were here for lunch. The goan sausages and poi were the highlight. The vegetarian xacuti and vindaloo were the only things which went wrong as they were sweet and that is not how it must be. The chinese dishes were good to average. Salad...and breads were good. The staff was very attentive and prompt. The easy access to the beach and the view made it a great afternoon. Recommended for families and small groups alike who are looking for some good drinks and food by the beachMore

Nicely located just on the beach. Positives Location with view and cool breeze Good seafood Friendly staff Reasonably priced Negatives Benaulim beach has too many stray dogs which is scary at times. They sneak into the restaurant too as it is open. The drinks are...not as good as the food. That was a bit disappointing. Overall if you have enough days in south Goa, try out as one of the options.More

We had gone to Johncy for dinner. We had ordered the seafood platter that had all varieties of fish and crab, however, the taste was okay. Johncy is a huge place so social distancing was maintained well. Plus there was live music going on which...was again giving out a good ambiance. All in all, I would recommend it for families and group of friends.More

Our first visit to Jhoncy's delighted us to the extent that we made a repeat visit during our one week holiday. Conveniently located on the Benaulim Beach overseeing the gentle waves of the Arabian Sea it cast a spell on us in many ways. The...culinary skills of the chefs were commendable and we were impressed by great starters washed down with the customary beer in abundance! The food was great and the environment most delightful. My only disappointment was their inability to serve the local rice and insistence on Basmati !!! Similarly, their inability to serve the local Poi bread!!! Would love to visit this place in my next visit to GoaMore

I am surprised to see comments that they dont take cards. They accept all types of credit and debit cards. I paid by cards when I visited this place.
