Went to this restaurant by chance and received a warm welcome by the chef de cuisine Marco (?), who assisted us to get a table and extended his service. Great start. The orders were brought quickly. All three dishes were very enjoyable, although the side dishes could been slighter bigger. Overall great experience, especially with this atmosphere. Sitting in the... More

We had a very enjoyable evening here. The meat and sides were very tasty and plentiful! We all left very full up. The warm bread was great too. The staff are very friendly. Especially the guy who brings the skewers to your table. It was a nice touch that the chef spoke to us too. Took a while for them... More

This is a lovely venue. Lovely food. However the service was slow, it took us an hour to get any food to our table and service for drinks was slow.

Finally, we have visited below restaurant, after one month of holiday trip’s dreaming and previous comments reading. From beginning until end of visit, me and my family have been not like as simple visitors, otherwise like friend’s meeting in our own, old good company. Presentation of famous Churassco was unbelievable! High class of service, performed by Philippine and Nepal friendly... More

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Resort. Ate at this restaurant about 6 times! Churassco is great, but the rib eye steak is to die for. Lamb rack also. Chef Marco does a great job. Shambhu is a gem!! Needs to be given more opportunity to prosper!! Wholly recommend. Beautiful setting too.

We had the churrasco. And it was great. Our waiter took time to introduce and describe the meat we were served. He remembered our favorites and came back to us very timely with them. The setting is beautiful. We sat outdoors and watch the sun set into the sea. The light sea breeze, the aroma of the grilled meat and... More

From the moment we sat down to the food and way we was treated, the service and food was excellent. I can honestly say I had a memorable birthday in a... More

Even though we had a big lunch we decided to go for the THE CHURRASCO. Meat meat with more meat. It was delicious. A tip is DON'T eat the bread you don't need it and be careful with the sides. You don't want to "waste" space for the meat. Each cut of meat is carved table side by the waiter... More
