“Excellent suckling pig”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Although just an ordinary beach shack, the food here is excellent. The suckling pig is the dish that draws people in the evening and it is excellent. It is served with loads of potatoes and veg along with gravy and apple sauce. No chance of leaving here hungry! We have been here in a group of four (minimum) and up to groups of 20. It doesn't seem to make any difference they just adjust the quantity but never skimp. Definitely one to try if you have never eaten on the beach at night. Reservations essential.

“good food”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Not being a fan of establishments such as english pubs, fish and chip shops and english 'pubs' in foreign countries we were initially reluctant to visit this shack, especially with such an awful name, however recommendations from others made us decide to give it a try.
It seems a little dilapidated and out of the way compared to other shacks but it has some appeal.
The food was certainly good however the service was very slow, not sure how they managed when it was busy.

“english food”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Best english food in Goa served at this beach shack, the Sunday dinners are the best. Braised steak, liver and onions to mention but a few. You do need to book for the evening as it is very busy otherwise be prepared to wait ......
