Last time we released a blog constituting the itinerary of Goa. We got a wild response and many queries. People asked us a lot of questions regarding Goa. In this post, we have tried to answer some of the questions.

Best Time To Visit Goa
The best time to visit Goa is from November to February as the weather is pleasant. You can enjoy on beaches more comfortably as there is no scorching heat of the sun and no rains.
If you love to party then preferably you would want to visit Goa in December. At this time it is grooving in holiday fun, Christmas and New Year is around the corner, many fests take place around this time. This is the most happening time in Goa.
How To Reach Goa
Goa Airport : Dabolim Airport. It is 27 km. away from Panjim.
Railway Station : Madgaon Junction is the main station (South most Goa). If your train halts at Thivim station, we suggest you to get down as this is near to center of the city.
December and January are the peak months for tourism in Goa. Hence, the prices for rentals in these two months will be pretty high (almost triple), so we suggest you to get vehicle from your source city.
Brands like Zoomcar/Drivezy are not available in Goa but local self-driving cars and bikes are available.
Places To Eat in Goa
More than food, the best thing to enjoy in Goa is the ambience of cafes and restaurants. Every café in Goa offers a different auro. They have – shacks, beach-side restaurants, fine dines, rom-com cafes, home cafes, bakeries etc.
We have visited Goa quite a lot of times and every time we see, some or the other new eatery has popped up. Since Goa offers global cuisine, we suggest that you explore the food yourself.
Here, we have jotted down some safe options you can try out in Goa.
Britto’s Bar and Restaurant
This grandy offers obnoxiously expensive treat but we guarantee you the food and ambience are worth the money you spend here.
It is on the beach side so while having food you can have a nice view of Baga beach. This place looks more beautiful at night, mostly a shack sort of place, its pretty lights and the sound of waves is sure to lighten up your mood.
It has all variety of food to offer and is equally good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. The dish that took away our heart was Grilled Lobser and Goan Suasage with Port Wine.
Souza Lobo is one of the best places to have Goan cuisine. This restaurant is on the beach side of Calangute Beach. This is one of the most famous eateries in Goa and having a dish from this place is a must to do thing in Goa.
Once you are done with all the exhaustion at Calungute beach, you can come her for good food and some relaxation.
The must try dishes : Prawn in Garlic Sauce, Stuffed Crabs and King Steak.
O Coqueiro at Bardez
We won’t tell you to expect a great ambience here but this place is for the people who do not like to experiment much with food. In contrast to both the eateries mentioned above, this restaurant has much comfortable and easy tasting food.
It also has a good variety of finger food and snacky item.
The must try dishes : Pork Sausage and Pav, Goan food – seafood, pork sausages and pork vindaloo.
Tito’s is a complete package of comfort food and breath-taking panoramic view of Baga beach. At night, its beautiful shacks and dim light kinda sets up the mood before you go to any pub.This place too, have a good variety of snacks and finger-food.
It mostly serves Continental and North Indian food (So Punjabis, you know where to bump). It also has a nice bar with all kind of drinks (But drinks will make your bill go sky rocketing).
This place has unlimited food and booze package.
We did not have much here but someone recommended to have Goan FishThali, so we bumped into the place. It is a decent place, serving quality food.
The Thali had a hell lot to eat – Rice, prawn curry, tisrea sukha, crab sukha, sol kadi, fried fish, raita, sweets blah blah blah….. Just go there and eat it. Even you wouldn’t remember the names.
This thali costed us less than 300 bucks. I guess this was the least expensive place we went to.
Besides everything, Hotels under the brand name Ritz and Mardol are best places to enjoy Goan Thali.
