it's always great to return to a favourite place to find everything is still perfect. The food is wonderful thanks to Chef Kevin and the welcome from the Proenca family warm and friendly - no wonder we keep going back. The facilities are excellent and this place ticks all the the boxes for us - thanks to you all!

spent the our last day here and it was a perfect way to round our holiday off, peaceful spot set back on the beach, with lovely sea views, sunbeds/umbrellas in a lovely garden setting, there is a charge for sun loungers but this is offset against food and drinks, the food was excellent and the owner was very welcoming and...

Beautiful spot on the beach, peaceful & relaxing atmosphere, set back from the hustle & bustle. Delightful garden , great hosts & gorgeous Goan food! Couldn't have asked for anything more for our final afternoon in Goa.

My son got married here in February. Over 70 friends and colleagues flew over from the UK for the wedding. Joseph and his sons did an amazing job, from the canapes and champagne cocktails to the organising of the procession of 30 tuk tuks decorated with flowers! We have called here each year we visit India, and it has become... More

We heard about pousada from friends so we decided to spend a day their. They offer sun beds with a minimum order of 900 rupees per person we don't recommend the sun beds. It was not a pleasant experience. However their menu is very unique they have special dishes that are gourmet. We enjoyed our meal but it is overrated.... More

This restaurant is so different from all the others around it. Not only is it an oasis of calm from the madness (especially on Holi day) but it offers a very different menu. Yes, it's much more expensive but wow! The photo shows our starter - without the chicken as they served that on a separate plate as I don't... More

Authentic, finger licking good, Goan grub. Extensive menu, priced reasonably; we spent about ₹3000.00 for 3 entrees and 4 non-alcoholic drinks. Friendly owner and his two sons ensure an enjoyable experience! Will definitely return.
