Welcome to The Nest

The Nest offers a multi-cuisine restaurant plus beach-hut style accommodation and is situated right on Palolem Beach.

We are Mohan and Ellie. Mohan is the real backbone of the whole operation, he’s there morning ‘til night and is the driving force behind our success. He’s the face of The Nest, always there to help you out, get you a cold beer, whatever you’re after really! He heads up our fantastic team who have worked with us for years and really do feel like family.

I’m Ellie, Mohan’s wife and I’m quite happy to handle all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. While Mohan is taking care of the Nest I’m busy looking after our young sons Daniel and Bharni.

We have stayed at The Nest every Christmas and New Year from when they opened until 2010. Both Mohan and his staff work really hard and provide excellent service. Best steaks and enchiladas in Goa. Hope that we can go again soon.

We stayed at The Nest for 1 month, the service was always amazing, nothing was ever too much and we recommend people to stay there every time we hear that someone is going to India.

The Nest is like popping down your local pub, NO it's better! meeting up with all your friends every season. we've been going to Palolem for the last 8 years. Mohan, Raj, and all the boys give the best service I have ever experienced, they work long hour's and always have a big smile for you. Great food, and WOW those gin & tonic's are the best!

U can't find anywhere as friendly or such good value anywhere on Palolem as the nest.

We eat at least one meal at The Nest every day during a four month stay. Always great food and great service. A happy place to be.

I love the Nest, it is a warm blanket full of wonderful food, hosts and friends. It draws an intimate crowd to Palolem to share in the beauty of Goa's golden sandy beaches. Mohan and Ellie and their crew have created a top notch spot to hang out, have the perfect sundowner and enjoy a tropical break in India.

I first came to Palolem and stayed at the nest with my girlfriends for a 2 week holiday. We were welcomed to the nest family instantly ... nothing was too much trouble for Ellie, mohan, raj and the rest of the gang. We met friends that I know now are for life as I returned the following year on my own for the season of 6 months and had the time of my life. The food, huts and hospitality are second to none. The nest family accommodate everyone...and yes I returned again the year after. There is no other place in Palolem where I would rather be. Thanks guys for welcoming me .... See you in a few months.

I have had the pleasure of being looked after in The Nest for the past two seasons. Mohan, Raj and the rest of the staff have made my stay in Palolem all the better. Fantastic food served with a smile and at reasonable rates. If I am ever back in Goa it will be at The Nest. Thank you all very much for looking after me

The NEST is the place to be in whole Goa. When you arrive there, you feel like coming home. They serve you the best dishes from all over the world in high quality, the staff members are extraordinarily friendly, fast and helpful, what you will not find in any other place in Palolem. Furthermore the guests are a perfect mix between young people, families and oldies, so that everybody feels comfortable. And when you have been there once, you always want to come back, so every time you go there you meet old friends. And at last the owner-family (Mohan, Ellie and the kids) give the whole place a heart. So if you are looking for a special place for your holidays, you should join us.
