“What a Bonus for our Last Night in Goa”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

I really wanted to book Joets for the last night of our wonderful holiday in Goa because it had such great reviews. We were not disappointed, it was everything that previous reviewers had said. The beach was quiet and clean and the rooms were large, spotless and were equipped with everything you could ever want - unusual for India. There was a minibar, tea and coffee making etc. Just lovely, all of it.

In the evening we went down to the restaurant which was completely packed - it was a Saturday, I don't know if that made a difference - and the atmosphere was great. A really wonderful way to end our great holiday.

In the morning we went for a long swim the length of the bay twice and then left for the five minute drive to the airport, and home.

Next time we go to Goa we will definitely stay a couple of days at Joets at the beginning to unwind before venturing down to South Goa, and will spend the last night there again too. It was just great.

Thank you Joets

“Great food”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

menu was very varied and good. Service was excellent. Highly recommended. Its nice that you can either sit inside or out on sandy ridge alongside restaurant - great if your a smoker. Also great when its a full moon. Live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Stays open late for dancing at the weekends.

“Average to say the least”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Anyone who rates this as an excellent choice for food in Goa obviously hasn't ventured far. The curry dishes were watery, service was ok but lacked any kind of panache we'd received at other beaches. The whole place had a kind of purpose for rather then resort destination which makes sense seeing it's right next door to the airport... on the upside the beers were ice cold, but the food was average.

“See food and eat it!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We were staying at the attached guesthouse so this was a natural place to eat, but frankly we wouldn't have wanted to go anywhere else. The restaurant also served the Coconut Creek hotel next door. The situation is superb, right on the beach, with fantastic sunsets. We found the ambience relaxed and being on holiday, really weren't too bothered about how long the food took to be served, but I don't remember it being an issue. The thing that took longest, especially on the first night, was deciding what to have! The menu is VERY extensive, and there is something for everyone's tastes. The seafood is superb, the kingfish is fantastic, and the prices are good. We paid a lot more for a seafood meal in Mahabalipuram on the east coast later in our trip. The breakfasts, which were included with our room, were really generous. There did not seem to be any restriction on how much you could order. Coffee was a bit weak for my tastes initially, but this was soon remedied on request. All of us (including my two young boys) really enjoyed this place.

“Joets Has it All!!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Have been a regular at Joets for almost 10 years now!! Its an ideal place to come and relax.
And though we keep trying out new and other well known restaurants in Goa, we have come to the conclusion year after year that Joets is the best.
If what you are looking for is a good, uncrowded beach to swim (with dolphins to keep you company!!), great food - Goan, Chinese and tandoori, and beer - both draft and bottled - and not too expensive...then look no further, Joets has it all!!
We have brought our friends and family here too over the years and they all appreciate it too.
Keep up the good work folks...
