Popped in for a bit of lunch & stayed until dark!
There is no doubt Ryan's is expensive compared to other shacks, in fact almost double the cheapest ones but it is all relative. Goan rip off is massively cheaper than UK pub grub.
But it was also easily the best beach food we tried. Beautifully prepared and really tasty, so worth it. The real rip off are the cocktails. Over twice the going price but with a daily happy hour with half price cocktails that's when to have one!
The music is just fantastic. Despite my senior years I still like a good bit of trans music to chill to and Ryan plays the best. The volume fits the time, quieter during meals(ish) times, much much louder during happy hour and again later in the evening. It's great to listen to the music while surfing, then as you hear the volume increase you know it's happy hour.
I'd say a must visit shack.

We went for lunch and at first noticed that it was a bit more expensive than other beach shacks. Do not be put off, we were really pleased with the quality of the food and felt it was worth a few rupees more. We enjoyed it so much, we stayed around for cocktails when the music is turned up making watching the sun go down even more fun. Ryan tries to greet all of his customers personally and the atmosphere is really friendly.

Goa without a visit to Ryan's shack is an incomplete experience. We happened to find the place by sheer luck and have since become ardent loyalists to Ryan and his incredible selection of music! Beautifully located on Candolim, the place is picturesque and hospitable with warm friendly service and staff. Ryan himself is always available and is the DJ rocking the place to the wee hours of the morning. Probably the only shack I found with smiles galore from most holidayers and most feet tapping! Ryan has since become a friend and this shack has become a permanent stop over on my future visits too!

Great experience Ryan and looking forward to more! Keep it up!
