Something in the food caused both of us to fall sick. Maybe a one off... Nice place to relax though, and the cocktails are pretty good.

We spent 2 weeks in Baga and spent most of our holiday at this shack. Our waiter Reddy was fantastic, looked after us so well, nothing was too much trouble, Reddy even suggested meals we might like which were not even on the menu, and every meal was beautiful. The drinks are always served very cold and the cocktails are... More

We ate quite a few times here. Not the most impressive looking place, but the food and service was exceptional. We enjoyed watching the world go by after our meal, mainly what was going on on the road!!!

Very less quantity and the food is expensive. I am from Hyderabad and we hope that they improve because it was hardly sufficient. The staff was cooperative but the Wi-Fi wasn't working.

We only visited once and wish we had found Shining Star sooner. Our hotel was about 4km from the beach and roughly equidistant from Baga and Calangute. Our first visit was to Baga beach which was busy but we weren't nagged too much, the second we started from Calangute during Holi which was a nightmare with drunk men all over... More

We arrived in baga for our first ever visit and needed to change money. We walked from our hotel into baga and decided to walk along the beach and see what was there. We got pestered all the way down the front. So we finally decided to come off the beach and change our money. We walked past the shining... More
