To anyone who wants an idea of what bake and shark is, Richards will fit the bill. They are almost always open and even if they don't have shark their fish will suffice.

Quite simply the best shark and bake. Range of tasty food at reasonable prices. Seafood, salads and fries all wonderful. Burgers etc as well as veggie all great. Right by the beach and facilities. You don't go to the beach without eating here.

This food spot is the best, I had a bake and shark with cheese and it was great especially with all the sauces and salads. Would definitely be visiting again, it's nice to sit on the beach and have a nice lunch.

The food is delicious... easy on the pepper though (pepper slight - lol). The customer service is something left to be desired though... the rudeness of the staff was unreal, but the food was great so I wasn't really bothered. One thing though, a few of the locals told us that there is actually a shortage of shark so what... More

While the bake and shark is delicious, you get more value for money in the shark and fries area at Uncle Sam's.

Definitely one of the best fish sandwiches ever. Especially tasty when all of the local sauces are drizzled on it. On a side note, all of the bake and shark sold at Maracas Bay is great so feel free to sample from other vendors.

I was skeptical at first, never having shark before. It was a pleasant surprise. The fried shark by itself was good, but the array of toppings sent it over the top. Be prepared, it's messy but well worth it.
