Here is The Beach Company's Guide for the Hungry Beach Bum in North Goa

Whether you're a fan of shoreline shacks, riverside restaurants, treehouse tables or candlelit cliff-top dining, north Goa has a really eclectic variety of places to put your beach tote down and get your fingers greasy.

La Plage, Ashvem
Over the years our love affair with La Plage has not only survived, but become stronger, despite an infiltration by chi chi crowds who make this an essential daily stop over. La Plage could be without a doubt the most stylish shack ambience and finest French food in Goa. Up three stone steps just off the hip Ashwem beach, La Plage appears like a fairy in white on a sand dune. Socoillo Vaddo, Main Arambol Beach Road, Arambol Pernem Goa; tel. +91 9764893896, 9881461224

Sur La Mer, Morjim
This Italian style villa, with hints of Spanish and Moroccan influence has rooms that open out onto a large swimming pool and courtyard is perfect for those looking to get off the beaten hotel and shack route. Sur La Mer serves what could be called a rich, brilliantly textured chocolate fondant and filo pastry. Morjim-Ashwem road, Morjim; tel. +91 9850056742, 9811253521

Thalassa, Vagator
In the Aesops fables, Thalassa appears as a woman formed of sea water rising up from her native element. An eerily similar vision is formed as you enter the muslin-curtained, mirror-filled, all-white Grecian restaurant near Nine Bar in Vagator. Little Vagator beach, near Nine Bar, Vagator; tel. +91 9850033537;

Sublime, Saligao
After moving from the forests in Anjuna to a house in Saligao, resto-bar Sublime has reinvented itself with a subliminally more sophisticated, high-end avatar. Dinner can be had downstairs under a thatch and coconut tree-enclosed area, on simple rustic minimalist chairs, at dining tables strewn with flower petals, or you can make do with a drink upstairs on lounge beds. Get plastered by their Goa Blast, a fenni and aarakh concoction. H No 1/9-A, Grande Morod, Saligao; tel. +91 9881154892

Chronicle, Vagator
The much-anticipated nightclub, Chronicle, made its debut in December 2013 in the up-and-coming Vagator area. With exposed stone walls carved out of the rock face of the Vagator cliff, the impressive multi-level space overlooks the ocean and offers a distinctive organic feel. The venue features an interactive restaurant, a cocktail bar and multiple dance-floors that are spread across its many levels.
