Restaurants near Utorda, Arossim Beaches Goa, India

During my stay at the Park Hyatt in Goa, I tried out a few of the beach huts located close by. Although we were spoilt for choice with restaurants in the resort we stayed at, we decided to venture out to the beachside restaurants that were cheaper and to have the quintessential Goan foodie ‘beach hut’ experience.
Most of the beach huts with the exception of Zeebop by the Sea had a very similar setup. Plastic laminate tables and chairs were placed on the sand floors, with half of the restaurant being covered and the other half in the open.
The food offerings were also similar with a big focus on seafood. The standout restaurant for me was Star Fish Beach Shack for the memorable and delicious dal makhani, and Zeebop by the Sea for its colourful ambience and environment (and random name).
If you’re staying at the Park Hyatt, the beach huts we visited below are all within walking distance with the furthest walk being 7 or so minutes to Zeebop. I’ve listed my must tries along with photos of our meals from each of the restaurants for those curious about the dishes available.
