We did have to make numerous calls to find the place, but it was all worth it, once you enter the permanent beach shack you are in a world of your own. With chai and biscuit (2 dogs ) to welcome you in. The food...More

The place has an amazing atmosphere with good food. It is not similar to any other shaks on the same beach and gives perfect escape for the day.

as it off the path and very limited signage, it took a couple of calls to get to the restaurant. however, it was definitely worth the trek. the seafood was fresh and prepared simply to highlight it's quality. the proprietor was delightful company.

Bottle of water 80 rupees (30-40 everywhere so a real rip off). Prawns with rice and small salad 850 rupees. Prawns overcooked so a little tough but good flavor. I went based on reviews but wont be returning. Overpriced.More

I usually refrain from going to the baga-calungute stretch while in Goa. But Posada came highly recommended and we had to try it and glad that we did. The location is perfect and the service and food are impeccable.

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...More

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...More

I am afraid not, we did ring the restaurant before we went, only lunch on first come first serve... we finished our lunch at about 15:30, when we were leaving there were still customers there.
