Description: Bang in the middle of the beach, the Café is the ideal meeting hub that is the darling of all guidebooks. Along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the exciting place provides a breathtaking view of a pair of rocky crags at either end of the beach. It is also the ideal location to watch Palolem’s legendary sunsets.

“Nice Cafe, Arrogant Staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2012

Been here last week to have dinner and drinks. Ordered a drink and a pasta. We waited for around 40 minutes still there was no sight of our order. When I finally asked, I was told that there's a big table to cater to so our order will take time. If that's the case why not remove all the tables when you have one big table to cater to. Also, it would help if the staff sounded little cheerful and less frustrated.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

It's a chain of Bars distribuited in all Goa, i've visited differents but the impression i had each time was to be in a tourist "Trap", and too often to be occasional i've been approched from "the bad guys of the block" tring to offer me each kind of things (also of bad quality. Don't waste your time here, i suggest.

“Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

One of the most popular places on Palolem beach with good food, free wifi and skilled personel. Only downside really is that they try to add soup to everyones bill regardless if the ordered it or not. Point it out and they remove it but still... cheap..

“Not worth the money they charge..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

In a nut shell, the quality of food here is not worth the more expensive prices they charge. Don't get me wrong, the food here is of a good quality adn it's a good view out to sea. But there are many other places in Palolem - both along the beach with view of the ocean and on the main street - which serve up food just as good, if not better, and charge less. I wouldn't go back, especially now knowing that you can get the same standard of food at better prices elsewhere.

Me and my partner stayed at the Cuba for over 3 days before heading north. Amazing atmosphere ! Accomodation was lovely. Beach huts , basic but very clean and good money ! Staff was so friendly and the food was incredible. Grilled fish, curries and more. Great atmosphere. Romantic tables and visions by the beach, candle lights and friends all over !!!
