We visited during off season (September 1st week) when most shacks are closed. We discovered Pousada by chance and glad we did. Open 365 days, with the sea right in front of you and greenery all around, this felt just a slice of heaven!! Excellent food- we came for Lunch and tried Fish canapes, aglio olio, sev delights and the... More

We went for an early-ish dinner during the off season in Calangute, so were the only ones in the restaurant which I felt made our experience more special! The service was incredible- we had a very friendly, attentive and passionate waiter who recommended the most authentic local and... More

Been there yesterday. This place is right on the Calangute beach specialising in sea food. The place is open only from 11am to 7pm. That's a little surprising considering it offers full fledged meal. They pride themselves in serving authentic Goan cuisine. The prices are exorbitant by Goa standards, the quality is top notch.

Once we discovered this little piece of heaven, we never wanted anything else for the remainder of our stay in Goa. To start with, Pousada offers an excellent view of the sea- you can see the waves hitting the shore, while sipping on your favorite drink or munching on your favourite dishes and just lose all track of time :)...
