Used this shack every day during our stay, staff friendly and good food, sometimes a bit slow at lunch, but as it was all cooked fresh, worth waiting for, sunday roast one of the best we've tasted, another good point not many Russians used this shack

Spent many days here on the loungers and eating snacks, really enjoyed this part of the beach, also came for sucking pig for 10! Although I don't eat meat there was enough potatoes and veg for me to not feel left out. Every one was really impressed. Will return again to the rovers, many thanks to brilliant staff!

We had a fantastic sunday lunch here although we did wait an hour for it to turn up- but it was worth the wait. They also did a "suckling pig night" but we missed this. We'll be back.

Wow! The waiters were so welcoming as we entered that we forgot the step motherly treatment we got at aggie's.The food was so gorgeous that we made this shack our permanent venue during our two wks. holiday.Worth a visit.I will definitely Recommend.

I go to india for my curries,but every so often I pine for something plain, this is when we go to the Rovers for a beef salad butty,oh and chips of course. The beach is spotless and so quiet, and the other visitors to the shack are a great bunch and make you feel so welcome, thanks again Anna, Joseph... More

I'm writing this review from Rovers just now.I have been at many so called better shacks all the way to Candolim and found the food in these shacks very disappointing.At least this shack makes everything fresh and you have to be prepared to wait but it is worth it.mostly frequented by British so you can have some banter without listening...
