Today was our last beachshack lunch in Goa and a very nice one it was. Went to Zappa's on Candolim Beach where I ate my last prawn curry and rice with papad and salad. A good, light curry with coconut milk and kokum, traditional.
My husband loved his platter of prawn butter garlic. With chilled bottled water and chilled sea breezes to match. Rs 1120 for everything. Which seemed a bit more than the prices on the menu. Must check for disparities next time.
Sad to leave tomorrow...

This was the third time we stayed in Candolim and have always spent time on the beach at the Za Pas shack. Everyone is very friendly, the staff, Ramesh, Ravi and Sanjay are extremely nice and very helpful. We ate lunch there every day in the shack with lovely views over the beach. We have never thought of going anywhere else for drinks and lunch as this is as good as it gets. The owners, philemena and Domenic are most welcoming. We hope tobeback soon.

Visit here as we used the sun beds belonging to them . There was a 250 rupees charge each . Sanjay , was friendly . As was the owner . Who offered to move from his table so we could be under the fan. Food was nice enough , but candolim beach just wasn't for us . Couldn't relax because of being constantly hassled by sellers

We travel to Goa often and have been here a couple of times and now fairly certain we will make this lovely place, a must visit for us each time. It has one of the best views of the beach and excellent food. The hosts Philomena and her hubby are welcoming and make you feel at home. The name's now changed to Za Pa! Highly recommended if you want to relax and have a good time.

Weĺl, where do we start? Considering one of our favourite destinations globally is Goa we were all disgusted with the attitude of the owners, given the amazing attitude and friendliness of the Indian people in general.
Downright rude and inflexible
There are hundreds of shacks to choose from so do not make the se mistake we did and STAY WELL AWAY
Food well below average coupled with fiddled bills and incorrect prices in relatioship to the menu. I could ramble on about the negatives but frankly have better things to do with my time
