“Good Food at a Good Price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014 via mobile

This shack was recommended by a friend. On our first day, I bought 3 meals, with 3 large Kingfisher drinks for less than £10.00. The next day, my wife and I arrived a little earlier and used the free sun loungers and basically parked ourselves there for the day. Having sampled the food the day before, I was looking forward to lunch. I was not disappointed. It's delicious. Try the cheese and garlic bread. It's a delicious dip to accompany the Butter Chicken, washed down by a 50p bottle of Kingfisher. We found a seat facing the sea and soaked up the breeze. It's idyllic. The sea is warm too. Seriously, it's the strangest feeling, but the water is really warm. We will be trying out Portafina restaurant tonight and have already sampled, Jamie's, which was excellent. Review to follow on for that.
Tip - the summer is just starting here in April. If you worship the sun, you will be granted with 32 degree plus heat. Its proper scorching.

“Great beach place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

We ate there almost every day for lunch of dinner. The food is good and the staff is great. Nice to eat dinner with feet in the sand watching the sunset. Beach chair available all day and good WiFi.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

We spend our days lying on the comfy sun beds at The Mahal - a 25 minute walk from our accommodation. We have breakfast there - freshly squeezed juices, eggs on toast & hot drinks- all good quality & cheap. We came for dinner last night & had a red snapper cooked in the tandoori with butter & garlic - delicious. We will be dining there again - would recommend you try it.

“Favourite Shack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Our favourite shack on Benaulim beach. The staff were great, the food was good and the sun beds are located well with some on the beach and some raised up by the shack itself.
