Big Peckers is a value for money restaurant mostly flocked by foreigners staying near the Calangute beach. It is a highly value for money restaurant offering cheap eats along Continental / Italian lines. It is more of a cafe than a restaurant and hence, there are chairs arranged outside the actual place - so it feels like a road side... More

Food is good quality at a very fair price, try the beans on toast with cheese which is a really filling breakfast. Make sure you don't sit... More

It is a very small joint, right on the main road to the Calangute beach. It serves tasty food with chilled beer..:-) The stretch is very happening and you wouldn't find vacant seats very easily. You should try the Goan fish curry...

We ate at big peckers several times this holiday and just as last year the food was always of a consistently high standard. Remi is an ideal host and although Rupesh is not there this year the new waiter who we christened Rodney was stepping up to take his place. This restaurant is ideal for watching the World go by...

I used this small restaurant, every time I went into Calangute shopping, I could just sit there watching the world go by, the food was fantastic, plus it was a lot cheaper than other places I used. Every time I went there I was greeted like an old friend, I have been using this place for the past ten years,... More
