Went here yesterday after spending the afternoon on the beach. Travelled by Rickshaw from Patnem (300 rupees one way) and arranged a return pick up with the driver. The area doesnt have much and the cafe is at the southern end of the beach set back behind the tree line, nice and shadey. The crab, oysters and clams were amazing.... More

We visited this place twice for lunch ,my husband had oysters straight from the water and I had the best cheese omelette in India.The staff are happy and helpful would recommend hiring a motorbike,scooter or tuk tuk and visit this lovely beach where the turtles lay their eggs.

Friendly staff - they tried to sell us a whole fish, but we declined, taking instead a half the fish and some prawns, which made the meal more interesting. We asked for a bowl of chilli to dip in, which for me made the meal amazing. And in a wonderful location too, right on the beach, in a secluded part... More

We stayed in the beautiful hut just next door and ate here all the time, surya and Shailesh are really friendly and helpful. Surya took us fishing and helped us with booking tuktuks, taxis and renting scooters! They made us feel very welcome and the food was always amazing.

We were dubious about trying any of the beach shacks along the back of turtle beach after some poor experiences in Palolem. We shouldn't have worried. Surya the owner welcomed us into his restaurant and explained the fresh catch of the day and specialities. Our orders of fried mussels, goan fish curry and goan crab curry made with locally caught...

These bungalows are something a bit special in South Goa, very roomy, great hospitality, lovely decor- tropical, Goan, right there on the beach. Do yourself a favour- go stay there, and enjoy the cuisine while you are there. Food is great

It's a quite beach cafe on Galgibaga beach. Looks not great but dishes are very tasty and always fresh. The owner Suriya is fishermen and he catches the fish, oysters and prawns every day himself. Owner was friendly and sometimes spent time with us in cafe. Prices are not too expensive. There are no vegan food but we found it... More
