3rd year in Goa and absolutely love this place. Understanding Sandra's accent is a job lol, Patrick is a brilliant cook and I've always been served beautiful and well priced food. The shack is tucked away without WiFi but that's perfect for me. Never had a problem with the owners daughter but then again, staring at teenage girls isn't my... More

We came across Sandpat whilst we were starving, hot and bothered! This shack felt like a sanctuary at that moment, the owners and the family were attentive, considerate and quite frankly a breath of fresh air! The food was fresh, tasty and quick which was superb! We spent most of the day here, relaxing, drinking and getting to know the... More

Visiting Goa during last week of December one always expects over crowded shacks with all sorts of vendors trying to sell to you. But when we visited Sandpat at colva we were pleasantly surprised.

Visited Sandpat during my December 2015 trip. I wanted a quite pleasant place with good food by the beach. This place has it. Sandra is definitely responsible for making this place awesome. Very polite and helpful. Food was excellent. We went for breakfast and swim but ended up staying there till mid afternoon
