There is nothing better than sitting on the beach bed with a bottle of beer in your hand and watching the sun disappearing in the water, and with the food from this shack, your moment gets the best.. A must visit!

“great food and music”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

It was our third time in Candolim in November 2012. And again we spent it in Ryan’s shack.
The atmosphere is warm and friendly there. Ryan greets all his guests and takes a small conversation with everyone, so you feel comfortable and are always welcomed in the shack.
His staff is awesome, all the guys work great and bring food and drinks fast.
The food, by the way, is very tasty there and served well. You should try lobster and red snapper. No doubts it’s delicious!
The music is playing all day long and people come to the shack after the lunch to listen to the Ryan’s tunes, to watch the sunset and to have drinks. And after that they can stay for party because the shack is opened till night. So anytime you can come and enjoy it!
I can say that we had had a very great time there, full of fun and relaxing. And it’s nice to meet people in the shack whom you have seen previous years there. People from all over the world come back here again and again.
Once you come to Ryan’s shack, you’ll be back there for sure!

Good chilled out ambiance, the food was reasonably priced,clean toilets and good service.The shack is situated on a nice part of the beach, i think we had to pay 100rps for the sunbeds,but it was worth it.
