One of the most amazing places I've been to! Stunning setting, the friendliest hosts and the most amazing food. I went there 3 times in my week in Goa and felt very welcomed every time! Can't wait to go back!

We went to this restaurant based on its good rating on trip advisor and were not disappointed. The location is perfect, set far enough back off the beach to avoid the hawkers and gawkers but with a great view. The tables are located in a well presented garden making for a very relaxing setting. The menu is varied but not... More

Very nice outdoor space with shaded dining area with ceiling fans and also a beautiful garden to the front overlooking the beach (with a few sun loungers to relax after you've eaten or whilst drinking). The food at this place was great, easily the best Indian cuisine I had whilst in Goa (though there was other dishes available on top... More

This restaurant is located right on the Calangute Beach. It's not exactly a shack as it is present on a permanent basis and is located on a private piece of land. But it's location is fantastic, right on the beach, and it gives you unobstructed views of the sunset... The dishes were authentic Goan and tasted great. Our server recommended... More

it's always great to return to a favourite place to find everything is still perfect. The food is wonderful thanks to Chef Kevin and the welcome from the Proenca family warm and friendly - no wonder we keep going back. The facilities are excellent and this place ticks all the the boxes for us - thanks to you all!

spent the our last day here and it was a perfect way to round our holiday off, peaceful spot set back on the beach, with lovely sea views, sunbeds/umbrellas in a lovely garden setting, there is a charge for sun loungers but this is offset against food and drinks, the food was excellent and the owner was very welcoming and...

Beautiful spot on the beach, peaceful & relaxing atmosphere, set back from the hustle & bustle. Delightful garden , great hosts & gorgeous Goan food! Couldn't have asked for anything more for our final afternoon in Goa.

My son got married here in February. Over 70 friends and colleagues flew over from the UK for the wedding. Joseph and his sons did an amazing job, from the canapes and champagne cocktails to the organising of the procession of 30 tuk tuks decorated with flowers! We have called here each year we visit India, and it has become... More
