Great atmosphere watching Liverpool v Man Utd. Brilliant service from the staff and some of the best food we have had in Goa. Thank you to Max and Jane the owners and the rest of the Palm Tree team. They have got it exactly right. Thank you for a great bar to visit on our holiday.

The Sportsman Bar is the place to head to for some excellent snacks options, primarily suited to an uber cool crowd who love to hang out on the usual American snack options - fish and chips, churros, among others. The best way to enjoy it though, would be with some excellent mocktails.
