Garvey makes you feel as if you were invited to a bbq/beach party!The rib platter was outstanding and huge .We could have split it (but we didn't). Great way to spend the day in paradise.

Garvey's Sun Shine Shack is a great, great place to plant yourself for an afternoon on Rendezvous Bay! Actually, it's the perfect place. Garvey is a friendly, personable host and the rib/chicken combo is excellent! Rum punches, banana coladas, the food and the location make this a MUST-DO in Anguilla!! We can't wait to go back (to Anguilla AND to... More

At $25, this is the most expensive item on the limited menu. I waited 20 minutes for it to be prepared fresh and it was worth the wait. The sauce it was cooked in and the taste of the two small whole snappers were delicious- really great! It was accompanied by a large mound of rice, a few plantains and... More

We had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Garvey at the sunshine shack and that is the absolute best way to describe it and him. He is full of love and sunshine and it is reflected in his food and the whole vibe of the bar. We had the ribs and some rum punches, laid on the beach, danced... More

The food and drinks were delicious. No need to rush because the Sun Shine Shack sits right on Rendezvous Bay. With great music playing, you will enjoy your experience.

A very small portion for the whole snapper, not enough to feed a small child. The rice, salad, cole slaw that came with it were tasteless. The beer was not cold. One meal, one beer, and one water was about $40. Save your money for a nice dinner at one of the recognized gourmet restaurants. We will not return.

What can I add about the Sunshine Shack? Service is much better than you would expect from such unassuming building. Beverage service to the tables all day. Food-fantastic! If you can get the fish-do it. Music-really good music playing all day. Beach-it’s Rendezvous-enough said. Gavin knows how to treat you right!

I recently had dinner there and can't say enough about it - so much so that we went back for lunch the next day. The shack doesn't look like much upon initial view, but Garvey (the owner / chef) is super nice and an amazing chef. The lobster was perfect and the red snapper & chicken were almost as good....
