Excellent food, nice atmosphere, staff friendly and offered mozzie repellent which was definitely needed. Would have preferred to do my own tipping rather than have it suggested by staff to put on when we paid by card. Would still recommend Beach Hut for their great food and location close to several resorts so within walking distance.

This little place absolutely rocked, the service from the get go was impeccable, the food soared way above our expectations, certainly not what we were expecting for a little Beach Shack. Loved the atmosphere, hubby said if we lived here, it would be our local. Thanks for the memorable experience:)

The beach shack is a lovely restaurant at a good location, especially if you're staying around the area. I have done take away pizza twice in that week and its reasonbly price and taste great. The set out for the restaurant is lovely and does give it the "Beach" look with the sand around it and being outdoors. The staff... More

Good variety of food, we went twice and had steak and fish the first time and pizzas the next and both times the food was great. The restaurant has a sand based floor, so lives up to it's name, but also adds to it's character. Must visit if you're in the area!

Delicious food and great table service here. A lovely relaxed atmosphere and beach decor. They got the sauce for the stead wrong but were very quick to apologise. The only fault I could give, hence the 4/5.

Nice restaurant with a relaxed outdoor atmosphere. Other meals were good, but Calamari was brilliant! Would have preferred better salad than rice as the accompaniment.

The Beach Shack feels real with a mix of casual dining, a bar frequented by locals and a laid back lounge area. Very pretty and spacious, I love eating with my feet in the sand! Friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend the shared, mixed entree plate with delicious pork belly, succulent squid and mushroom arancini balls. I had the chef's special... More
