Great spot and lovely food. The owners are very cordial and hospitable. The doggies Chai and Biscuit add a lot of homeliness to the place . All good, but fairly expensive. A meal for 3 cost us 5000/- Overall a must do experience

We journeyed here via cab and were dropped a short distance away. Follow the signs,(or ask for directions) and you will be rewarded well. Neville “The Devil” fulfilled all of his promise upon welcoming us and we submitted to his superior judgment on how to...get our salivary glands working in good order, (we had some helplessly indecisive companions). We had a variety of different starters and mains to share and NONE of them disappointed. In short, great hospitality, fantastic vistas, efficiency of service, precision of culinary execution - a fantastic night had by all! Highly recommended!More

One of the worst restaurants I’ve ever been to. From ordering the food till the food were at the table it took minutes, something that indicates this was premade. The food had no taste, except I’m pretty sure it was sand in at least two...of the dishes we ordered. The cocktails tasted nothing but alcohol, and their juices was definitely not fresh. They charge a lot for bad food, poor service and extremely uncomfortable chairs. Spend your money elsewhere!More

It is indeed shocking when your business establishment received negative reviews, especially considering the fast and efficient service we provide. It's all about prepping well in a very organized kitchen. Sand in the food !! or perhaps the crunchy ingredients in the grilled aubergene salad?...More

This is a must visit when in Goa! Neville has created the most beautiful, serene and homely space right on the beach. The sunset beach views with the beautifully manicured gardens add to the atmosphere. All of the staff are so welcoming and friendly and...we enjoyed our chats with Neville and being introduced to his doggo's Chai and Biscuit. If a restaurant has dogs is a winner to me! All of the food and drinks were beyond expectations, we had the seafood platter and the serving was huge! The garlicy buttery bread that came with it was to die for! Be sure to come here for sunset, it's one of the best in Goa. Added bonus is the shower near the (very clean) toilets so you can wash the sand off.More

We’ve been looking forward to enjoying the food again at Pousada by the Beach for four years and we were not disappointed. The menu still had all our old favourites but with new dishes to try. All tables enjoy shade and a beach view. It’s...also the perfect spot to watch the sunset. We love this place for both lunch and dinner. We’ve travelled a lot and this is our favourite place.More

Place was difficult to find while coming via road ...sign boards helped. Once we reached we were greeted warmly by the owner. Seating is well spread out. The menu is extensive. We tried Chicken Pousada , prawns crostini, cheese balls and okra fried for starters....simply...yummy. This was followed by Pork Vindaloo and prawn curry rice ...again excellent. Serradura and bebinca vanished in a blink. The highlight but was the atmosphere...attentive , lively. We had a wonderful time at Pousada.More

I have been to this place twice and they serve great delicious authentic sea food that’s fresh with a personal touch from the owner who is around with his dogs ( named Chai and Biscuit ) and one of the best fish and chips I...have ever tasted ! Their other sea food dishes like fish, prawns are delicious. This is an exclusive joint that’s not very crowded and one feels at home with their personal touch and gracious hospitality certainly worth a visit ! Dr. Javed RasheedMore

Excellent food. We ordered calamari fry, prawns and chorizo with poi. The food was good but chorizo is another level. We absolutely loved the place. The place is very close to the beach. The service is quick. They have many dogs lazing around the place...which was an added attraction for us.More

Wonderful classy restaurant in a rustic setting. A unique property in what is otherwise a commercial and noisy part of Goa. Its also constructed in a way that privacy is maintained for the people sitting and eating inside. The food and drinks were VERY good,...and the staff were efficient. Another cool thing is the owner’s attention to detail and ensuring that each guest is catered to.More
