We had stayed there for 2 nights, they charged us Rs 5000 for a couple. Apart from the location which is right on the beach there is nothing good about the place. The rooms were unclean. Bedsheets appeared as if weren't changed. Food was ok. But their staff were extremely arrogant. Very racist. Treated indians as if we were not...

Went for lunch and ordered a BLT on baguette. It came out on cold stale ciabatta, no tomato( 3 Ingredients HOW CAN YOU MESS THAT UP!!!), no mayo and bacon covering maybe 10% of the sandwich. Not only that but it took 45 minutes, and haha they missed the same on my friends. Saw other food that looked like garbage...

We visited this shack after reading good reviews on TA. All of us landed up with acute stomach infection which ruined 2 days of the holiday. The prawns did not taste like prawns, the Smirnoff tasted different. The wait staff was not really interested in serving the customers- on the mobile throughout. May be all right if you only have...

I sat at the bar which was swarming with flies. The same staff who serve you drinks, wipe the bar, then use knives and a lime squeezer and a cutting board which are exposed and covers with flies to make your drinks then proceed to crush the ice with a sort of ice hammer in their dirty unwashed hands. A...

My girlfriend and I spent a few hours during the day here. The service was OK, a bit slow, but I think that's common when you're on the sunbeds on palolem Beach. Snack food was good and the drinks were cheap so it was ideal for sunbathing.

All we did was sit on the comfy chairs placed on the beach at sunset time and drink beer, happy hour cocktails and chill watching the sunset before our meal at The Fishermans. All fine with us and staff very friendly!

Unfortunately this one place spoils the whole beach..loud awful music starting early evening through till late. This is not what Palolem is about. Everyone else does there very best to keep to the rules and keep Palolem the chilled beautiful place it is. This cafe needs to go to the North of goa where he would fit in. Love Palolem...

I havent seen such a worst service. They are only behind the money. And rooms are pathetic. They dont even have basic common sense how to speak with customers. Shrikanth and Sanjay these guys r not trustworthy.
