First Time in Betalbatim


We have just booked to go to Betalbatim on 16th November, we are staying at the Jasminn Hotel. We have been to Goa for the past 5 years, but normally stay in Candolim.

I just wondered what the restaurants were like there, also taxi & cashpoint availability?

I see from other posts that Colva is busier etc, just wondered what the taxi prices are roughly from Betalbatim to Colva?

Not sure what the taxis charge these days, but am guessing about 300-350 from BB to Colva. There are taxis outside the Jasmine Hotel. There is also a restaurant that has opened almost opposite it, but it only opened the week before I left, so I never got to try it. I know one or two people on here have been there though, so they can probably comment. It's called Casa Nostra, I think.

There is a small south Indian restaurant in BB village which is open at lunchtimes and until about 9pm, but apart from that, there's not much in the way of eating places within walking distance. You are also quite a walk from the beach. There are at least two cashpoints in the village and three or four general stores, a pharmacy, internet shop and barbers.

Went to the Casa Nostra a few weeks ago for our friends birthday as they was supposed to have a special evening with live music and dancing, when we arrived there was no sign of a band or dance area but they said they were coming and they were still coming at 11.30 when we left

The food was OK but the service was rubbish as the chef and staff were falling over themselves looking after a table of four that were having a whole spit roasted pig hand carved at the table, they had arrived in an enormous Mercedes dumped right outside the entrance and sadly the staff could not be bother with our table of four or the only other two tables in use

A big let down for us as we could have had a far better time at New Town near where we stay, in fact have had far better food and fun evenings at half the price with Brian (Smokey) Bones singing playing guitar at Dunstan's cafe " Oshiann "

Lots of info from LGG here
