Souza Lobo, Calangute

Tel: 832 228 1234's insider take:

A Goan institution since 1932, Souza Lobo is run today by Jude Lobo, the founder's great grandson. And it still serves some of the best Goan food in the region. Tables are draped in red cloths, and waiters wear cheery orange shirts printed with coconut trees. Dine on steamed rice and fish cooked in a green paste of coriander and spices, served with crisp fried potatoes. For dessert, try the bebinka, a Goan sweet made of stacked coconut pancakes. The restaurant is close enough to the ocean for diners to see the surf glimmering in the moonlight. Musicians perform a lively assortment of Hindu and Konkani songs, American country music, and soft rock.
