Waiter recommened food after asking what we liked. Had a great meal, 2 curries 2 naans, rice and 3 large beers for less than £15 plus a free ride home. Food was excellent.

Four of us have just eaten the most delicious barbecued Barracuda. It was beautifully presented in a great atmosphere and very reasonably priced. Well done Sam- your staff are fantastic and the service superb! We have eaten here before and will definitely visit again.

Lovely place to eat and friendly people. I always go there and have been for over 15 years. Whoever says anything else needs to seek medical help.

Friendly service from Sam and his team. A choice of fresh fish, beautifully cooked and served. A bonus was the complimentary transfer back to the hotel. Thanks, Sam.

This is a simple but great place for lunch by the sea. Food is excellent and so cheap that the three of us had lunch for about £12. Beer included. Great service as well. Well worth a visit.

We loved visiting Sam's shack while in Goa last year and were disappointed not to find it in the same place on our arrival this year.

After 3 hours for a 2 dishes lunch, what else can I say about this place? Well for starters, dishes cost between 200-500 rupies, but the first thing they offer you are daily fishes, they bring you a platter with 3-4 fishes for you to choose, If you know anything about fresh fish you'll quickly realize the are not fresh...
