We ate in at the Beach Shack early in our recent weeks holiday. The meal was most enjoyable in a very relaxed atmosphere. All four pizzas we had were excellent, full of flavour and interesting mixes of ingredients. We then had the same four pizzas as take away a few nights later and they didn't disappoint.

We happened to be staying just around the corner from this restaurant and it was recommended by the manager of our resort. Enjoyed the meal and were served by a very knowledgeable and polite kiwi. Explained the menu very well and whilst not an extensive offering there was sufficient choice. We chose the Scotch Fillet with tiger prawns and both... More

It can be hard for one restaurant to accommodate our family of four - with a fussy 12-year old who has a gargantuan appetite, a vegetarian adult and kid who just eats nuggets or ham and pineapple pizza, we are not easy to please! But the Beach Shack was just perfect. The fussy one loved the spag bol, the kid... More

Had an early dinner here with our son (age 6) - really wish we had found this place sooner, so we could visited twice during our stay! Genuine, friendly service and excellent food. Delicious pizza, fish, and cocktails! We went during school hols (well, Victoria and NZ school hols) and booked a couple of days in advance - we witnessed... More

Managed to fit us without reservation. Good service and food. Very popular, with quite a few people turned away from the restaurant and diverted to the pizza service next door.

Loved it, went twice and the pizzas were amazing (thanks pizza man Froggy!) as were the aranchini balls and the gnocchi. Scrumdiddlyishous all of it. Loved the fact it is frequented by locals and off the main tourist route - we could pretend we lived right there in paradise. And if we did we would come here all the time.... More

Food was fantastic. Can see why it was so hard to get a booking (tried 3 nights in a row). Staff very attentive and chatty (in a good way).
