Where and What to Eat in Goa

While many people prefer the fresh food of the beach shacks served out under the starry sky, you might not appreciate it on a windy night when sand flies onto your plate. That is when the cheap and fresh food of the shacks loses its appeal and you can head out to the popular restaurants and night clubs.

There are a lot of good restaurants in Goa, as the motto here is 'eat, drink and be merry'. Even at the smallest and simple-looking places you will get to taste some divine food. As it is not possible to list all the places, here is a list of a few truly popular ones.

At Baga


This is a good place to taste some authentic Goan food. It is among one of the longest-running restaurants in Goa and it has continental food on the menu as well. The great thing is you can step out on to the beach from here after placing your order and return to eat. There is also live music on Monday and Thursday nights. This place is not cheap.

St Anthony’s Bar and Restaurant

Located at the end of the road that stretches out into Baga Beach. This is an old place is popular with tourists and locals. It has a shack-like ambience and serves some really good food. The ideal place to relax with a beer on the beach while you get served yummy food. Reasonable rates.

At Calangute

Infantaria Pastelaria

Better known as Infantaria this place is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer some nice Goan food and a continental menu as well. Try out the sausage rolls made from spicy Goa sausage and baked bread. The pastries are good and the pasta is even better. It is almost always crowded so you might have to wait for your order. A lot of people simply pack the food and walk to the beach close by at Calangute. Quite reasonable rates for the quality on offer.

Souza Lobo

This place is on the beach but it's constructed properly so you can enjoy the sunset here without sand in your toes. It is more than 65 years old. The cocktails are good and the seafood is great but don’t order chicken here as it's not the chef's speciality. Stick to fish, mussels and shrimps and you will be fine. It is located on the left as you step down into Calangute Beach, you just cannot miss it. Not too expensive for a meal for two but some seafood dishes can be quite costly.

Located just off the Calangute Baga road, this nightclub is rather dense with male testosterone. Despite men being charged and women coming in for free it is not a place for a single woman to go to. If you are a couple, head here with another couple for a good time. Food and drink are both expensive.

At Candolim

Fisherman’s Cove

Located on the 'holiday street' or the lane that ends at Candolim Beach, this place is often confused with another restaurant on the main road with a similar name. It is a nice and cozy place. The diffused lighting is ideal for a romantic date. The Chicken Maryland is outstanding and the seafood great. Not everyone in Goa can cook the vindaloo (spicy meat curry dish) like they make it here. Reasonable rates.


Here is fusion at its best. Open from 08:00 to midnight; a place where you can have all three meals, unlike most other places which are only open for lunch and dinner. The menu features Indian and French food and the kebabs are truly outstanding. Relaxed atmosphere and reasonable rates make this a nice place to head for meals.

Stone House

This restaurant is located on Fort Aguada Road. Some distance from the beach but you can walk it if you are not in a hurry. The comfortable wicker chairs are great to sink into as you wait for the meal to be served. The menu is multi cuisine and all of it is usually well made. Very reasonable prices. The soundtrack is soothing and soft and it is well worth a trip.
