It was a "wow" factor when we walked into this family restaurant by the beach, a garden restaurant sitting by the public beach...the lively, yet relax ambience, simple, surounded by blue sky, sea and bushes and exotic feel, something completely different from other local restaurants where we've been eating for 4 days... The flavor perhaps could be a little improve with the vandaloo and the squid Xecutti(not sure I spelled it right), but it's not a disappointment because we demolished everything, just had better vandaloo before (understood from indian that vandaloo is continental). Leave this for the owner to consider. Smart and good looking young waitors, efficient! We had a lovely lunch and a pleasant time.

Pretty much everything about Pousada is spot on. The ambiance, the service, definitely the food. It's visited by westerners and indians alike. We went a couple of times over the all too short time we were in Goa and had we known sooner would have returned again.

A more than decent lunch, excellent prawns and seafood. Well worth a visit, with friendly attentive staff.

Pousada is calm, serene right on the sea with beautiful palm & coconut trees,sea breeze , complimented by simply designed dining & easy chairs ...the high points are the magnificently prepared & presented food...varied menu serving great quality seafood & of course the bar is loaded! The best part is the family who runs it- Neville -the fabulous guy who owns it ,explains each dish to all the guests, his son Joshua takes care of the rest along with his chef brother Kevin!
I had Prawn Balchao,amongst a host of other preparations with my friends...my dish was brilliant...maybe one of the best I ever had.My friends & I shared the vindaloo,fish along with a couple of veg starters- I guess we all were hooked!
Its a perfect blend of good food with a lot of local flavour,great ambience,elegance and extremely knowledgable & friendly guys who run it!

This Place is pleasantly quiet. You can enjoy delicious sea foods with a beautiful view of calangute beach. So if you are visiting calangute then you must try this place. Enjoy the food...and then you can simply relax on the sea facing sun beds or else you can indulge into water activities. It has changing room facility as well. So you can spend whole day at here by ordering good food, relaxing for some time, or by going for a beach walk, have fun with chai and biscuit....and come back with lots of good memories.
