South Goa has plenty of budget food and scenic views.
South Goa’s charm lies in its quieter, pristine beaches. So on a weekend there’s no better place to be at. Travelling, especially by cab can cost a bomb, so why not save on food? We give you a list of budget eateries to satisfy your hunger.

AJ’s, Benaulim
One of the most famous eateries in South Goa, Aj’s has become a landmark. Go here for their Hot-n-Spicy Chicken Wings and wash them down with a refreshing Lemon Ice Tea. And, end your meal on a sweet note with their Banoffee Pie. AJ’s home delivers around the south for free.
Meal For Two: Rs 400(inclusive of taxes)
 
Goan Sausage Chilly Fry at Live Lounge, Colva

Live Lounge, Colva
Live Lounge is a good option for those who want to spend a Saturday night unwinding over good food, a few drinks and some indie music. The dining area isn’t much of a lounge, but it has dark wooden-furniture and dim lights that set the mood. The concerts are open to all and to compliment the music, we recommend Goan Sausage Chilly Fry and Jalapeno Balls.
Meal For Two: Rs 600(inclusive of taxes)
 
Fish Thali at Fishland, Margao

Fish Thali at Fishland, Margao

Fishland, Margao
When you see a restaurant full of locals, you know you have made the right choice. The no-frills restaurant wears bare walls, has a few tables and waiters serving hot food quickly. The place is packed during lunch with people ordering their Fish Thali; that with a chilled beer and you got yourself the perfect meal. Their Batter Fried Calamari too is worth a try.
Meal For Two: Rs 500 + taxes
Pork VIndaloo at Raj's Pentagon Restaurant, Majorda

Raj’s Pentagon Restaurant, Majorda
The owner, Raj, swears that this is the apt haunt for a backpacker. The restaurant is shack-styled on the outside, but is cosy on the inside with soft-lighting and comfortable seating. The food is cheap, the alcohol cheaper and the memories are priceless. Drop by for an authentic Goan seafood or pork meal served under the shade of coconut trees.

Tavir, Margao
Authentic North Indian food can come cheap in Goa and it does, at Tavir. Located in the heart of Margao, at one glance it may come across as a fine-dine restaurant with classy interiors, decorative wooden panels and soft lighting but don’t let the looks fool you. The Shammi Kebabs and Paneer Makhanwalla come highly recommended.

Sharda Classic, Margao
If you don’t want to get out of the house, order in from Sharda Classic. The restaurant looks simple with a few tables and has cream-coloured walls. The restaurant serves Goan, Indian and Chinese, and we recommend the Crispy Chicken and Triple Chicken Fried Rice. They also deliver soft drinks to give you a complete meal without having to leave the comfort of your home.
Meal For Two: Rs 400 (inclusive of taxes)
Doubrl Crab Burger at Cherry Tomato, Colva

Double Crab Burger at Cherry Tomato, Colva

Cherry Tomato, Colva
Your search for the biggest and meanest burgers ends here. Cherry Tomato’s burgers are massive and are a challenge to finish. The Double Crab Burger and their Zombie Burger have earned the reputation of being impossible to finish, so much so that the owner made them a smaller to avoid wastage, but they are still pretty huge. The funky chequered flooring and pink lights add to the fun of dining here.
Meal For Two: Rs 700 (inclusive of taxes)
