“Not much to expect”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Visited this place with family in June First week.

There is nothing gr8 about the place, Over priced for below average quality food.

The prawns curry we ordered was terrible hence moved on to another restaurant for the rest of the meal.

“Good food, need better service!!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We prefer bringing food home rather than all of us going out, so while yesterday was another popular restaurant, today was our Souza Lobo's turn.
We ordered 2 plates of sweet and sour pork, 2 of garlic chicken, few pois (goan bread) and 2 mixed fried rice. After a wait of about 40 minutes which I feel is too long for off season, since I could see only 2 other tables occupied, our order was brought, only to realise that the bill was lesser than my estimate. On checking the bill again, we saw that instead of 2 plates of the gravies, we were brought only 1 of each. While mistakes do happen, if the waiter had to repeat the order, this could have been avoided. Maybe I have to make it a point to have the waiters repeat the orders in case they forget.

This may be a very rare incident, but otherwise this place is very famous and during tourist season, they put tables in the open air and they are also full. Dont miss this place if you are at Calangute Beach.
Most of the dishes are priced between rs 200 - 500 and the quantity is good.

“Hidden and worth it! ”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We went for dinner along with another couple on a Friday night. It was quite full but we managed to get a space without delay. Along with drinks, we ordered chicken goan masala & red snapper for appetizers. The portion size was adequate & taste was good. For main course, we ordered steamed rice and chicken xacuti. Again a delicious though spicy dish. The service was good. Being right at the beach, we could savour the sounds of the sea as well. There was live music that added to the evening!

“Nice place”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

It was a beach view place, the food was nice and it was a good experience, if a little more expensive than any of the other little shacks on the beach. The beach outside was definitely quite crowded, however the music in the shack was quite nice as it was live music.
