Food has gone down in quality some, but it's ok. The service has worsened significantly, the waiter was pushy and kept asking for tip several times and taxes are almost 25%. Not sure that I will go back.

If you go to Goa you have to visit Souza Lobo. Period. Getting a seat may take time as the place is always packed but its worth the wait. Try the lobster and the pomfret stuffed with mini shrimps. Dont remember the exact names but ask them and they will bring you what you need. I could go to goa... More

Superb sea fare and authentic goan delicacies need i say more. The approach to this sea side happening place is via two routes u can have a short walk down the beach. This route is preferrable. The other route which is kinda a back door entry via the alley behind the dozens of shops is not worth taking as its... More

Authentic Goan food. The fish fry here is excellent and I'd probably be back for the same very soon.

We visit Goa at least once a year and even if we do not stay in Calangute we make it a point to visit Souza Lobo Restaurant at least once, if not more. The Restaurant is located on the edge of the beach and commands a wonderful view of the beach and sea. Whether watching the sun set or gazing... More

I guess my 3rd or 4th visit to this place & I always enjoy their services. The place is still the same for the past 8-9 years since I've been visiting. Easily accessible as it is the 1st eating place on the overcrowded Calingut beach. It offers good view of the beach along with friendly staff & quick service. The... More

Had a tandoori red snapper with draft Bira white. They have maintained their standards without much variation at the original calangute location. Have been going there since 1978 when Mrs. Lobo had a temporary beach shack. Qudos to the current team to have striven to maintain the original standards. Prices are very reasonable.

Thank Anupam C
