Calamari Bathe & Binge


About this Restaurant

Located by the pristine waters of Candolim beach, Calamari has for long been a hotspot for all the metropolis population coming down to Goa just as much as it has been a delight for the local domicile. And why wouldn’t it be? It is by far the best beach shack in the belt with live entertainment, chic ambiance, refreshing cocktails, and freshest seafood while the romantic beach-side setting just adds up to the charm. If you are planning to bounce to this shack anytime soon, be sure to put your swag on since you are most likely to spot some glamorous Bollywood celebrities and famous Indian cricketers
who are regulars at Calamari. But first things first; the food at Calamari is outlandishly phenomenal and that’s where it gets its popularity from.

The Food

Open from 11am to 11.30pm, Calamari strives to serve you all meals on their menu (except breakfast) at all times of the day. Unlike other shacks, Calamari has a very crisp and to-the-point menu featuring Seafood, Goan, hints of Continental, and Live Barbecue offerings that are bound to delight your gustatory senses. The chefs give special emphasis to the quality of ingredients, meats, and seafood delivering consistent, fresh, and flavourful food every time you eat there. Calamari allows you to choose from an array of fishes and other seafood delights which you can browse through and select before it’s cooked, plated, and served on your table.

The People

Calamari was launched in 2003 by Verner and late Reginaldo Dsouza. Currently managed by Verner and his wife Leanne, Calamari has always kept the expectation levels very high for beach bummers looking for quality food and service in the northern beach belt. Being from a hotel management background and having worked at the Taj in Mumbai for three years, Verner has expertise in generating class-apart culinary and hospitality experiences through exceptional service, remarkable food, and thriving live entertainment acts everyday for lunch and dinner.

  • Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
