Britto's - Baga Beach, Baga, Goa

On a cool evening, a walk on the beach can be calming and hard on the legs. Walk into Britto's to rest awhile and stay for dinner. Get there early to get a table, because it gets crowded really quickly.

I can't think of anything specific to recommend here. They have Goan and continental, and both are good, though I'd say their continental style is better than their Goan. We tried the Vindaloo with sannas, and it was amazingly spicy. The sannas were sweet to counter the spice, but weren't soft and fluffy like they're supposed to be — a victim of mass production I guess.

A tip - if the spice gets to you, eat a plain sanna, or some plain white rice. Leave the gravy; that's where all the spice is.

The fenny at Britto's is the cheapest I've seen anywhere. We tried Palm fenny with lemonade, and it was quite heady.

Blues rates it:
Food - Decent, spicy
Service - Good
Price - Medium high - normal for a beach restaurant
Ambience - Crowded, nicely lit
Overall - Promising place

Recommendation - Go there a couple of times, but there are better places for real Goan food.

Getting there:
Take the bus to Baga, and get off at the stop just before the last stop (you could ask the bus conductor for Britto's). A board on the road announces Britto's, and it's a few feet in towards the beach. If you're approaching from the beach, keep walking towards the north end of Baga, and look out for Britto's on the right near the end.

I have seen many pictures of Goa. and I love everything about it! The beach is so beautiful and clean. The seashore is wide enough for people to walk through it and maybe, have a beach volleyball game.

Baga Beach
is an fantastic getaway for those that are somewhat eager on the peaceful respite, absent in the crowded hustling seashores of Goa. Nobody wants to miss the beach when they are in Goa.
