Best Shack in Calangute

We visited this shack on our last visit to Goa. Joseph the owner/chef serves excellent food. His speciality is Suckling Pig but we all went for the Roast Beef which was the best I have ever tasted. Will definitely be visiting this shack again when we return next season.

This place was recommended to us as one of the best, they weren't wrong. As the name suggests, it caters for the Brits, roast to die for. We had several lunches here and the food was first class. A party of 12 of us booked an evening meal of roast lamb and roast suckling pig, it was excellent and to... More

Where do I start? The 6 of us have practically been through the entire menu! Steak pies are enormous and to die for. Me and my daughter shared one with a portion of cauliflower cheese and were absolutely stuffed. Hubby had fresh crab - £16, enormous, tasty and beautifully served. Sunday dinners - better than my mother used to make.... More

I had the steak pie and it was delicious but we had to share the apple pie and custard because they had run out. he gave us some very informative advice about the dogs and cows and made us... More

Had a hog roast (there were 6 of us) and we couldn't believe that such amazing quality of food could be produced in a beach shack. We had roast potatoes, mash, cauliflower cheese, cabbage, gravy and a whole suckling pig , cooked to perfection with crackling to die for. Added to that we got to watch the sun set which... More
