What a fun place with a great vibe. Great music selection too – mix of Bob Marley and other island tunes. Food does take a while (as do all good things cooked on a smoker) so order as soon as you arrive if you want to eat vs. just chill. The pineapple margarita was very refreshing and the food was...

Caught the sunshine shack on the last day of the season. The place is awesome, right on the beach great food. Garvey the chef is the man, talked with him about bean town for a while turns out he vacations where we live and vice versa. Must do on your trip to Anguilla.

There is no need to elaborate. Not only is Garvey a gentleman and a great 'hugger', he cooks the best ribs and chicken on the island. And the accompanying carrot salad is refreshing, delicious and perfect. The drinks, the divine Rendezvous Bay and all of Garvey's immensely accommodating staff make for a beautiful afternoon that lasts well after the sun... More

Garvey and his staff treat you like old friends from the moment they meet you, a warm welcome The Ribs were delicious and freshly cooked. They came with tasty rice and a crispy salad with a tangy drizzle. My only negative was that the portion of coleslaw was far too small!!! It was the best I have tasted in ages.... More

Right on Rendezvous Beach, this colorful shack is a great spot for drinks! We had just eaten lunch when we came upon it, so we only bought cocktails for our walk. $8 for a rum punch, which I thought reasonable. Would give it a try!

Garvey is the man, he is super friendly and everyone here rocks. I had the best meal here, a whole red snapper cooked perfectly. Can't say enough about this place. The drinks are good, always good company, great drinks, and dominos all day.

Loud music playing and couldn't hear each other talk from across the table. Asked them to turn it down twice cause we were the only one's there. They didn't, so we left and didn't come back the rest of our stay. So they forfeited an easy profit to listen to their music alone. And the people of this island are... More
