we first went to Joseph's shack 20 years ago when it was one of very few shacks on the beach & the food although limited then was lovely & freshly cooked we have been many times since & the food has always been good & the menu has grown with a wide range of food on offer this year we ate there a few times the Prawn cocktail on plate is to die for so tasty ! we took some friends with us who also ate there & had lobster which they said was delicious i have never had a bad meal at the rovers & have always had a very warm welcome from Joseph & his family who are lovely people . While we were there he had a group of 8 having suckling pig it looked amazing & lots of it ( Joseph actually rears the pigs himself ) the Sunday lunch was very good too . We really can't fault anything about this shack great food & wonderful genuine people

I'm writing this review from Rovers just now.I have been at many so called better shacks all the way to Candolim and found the food in these shacks very disappointing.At least this shack makes everything fresh and you have to be prepared to wait but it is worth it.mostly frequented by British so you can have some banter without listening to the constant babbling of Russians.Ive just had a wonderful Sunday roast dinner for £3 and couldn't fault it,the previous reviewers who ran this place down should either said something at the time or are the usually looking for 5 star for 1 star prices.

4 of us were recommended to eat here for the suckling pig on New Year's Day. A small pig never arrived just the head of a pig and very dried out pork along with pork scratching a that were out of a packet in squares. Scratching wasn't the real stuff at all. Probably the head just gets passed around the other tables. The rest of the meal was ok but very pricey and not authentic. Would not recommend at all and was £6.50 per head. Way to much paying for this. Tut Tut

We first had this 3 years ago and have been coming back each holiday. This year we brought friends visiting Goa for the first time and they were blown away by what Joseph can produce from this little shack. I have only ever had the suckling pig and probably only ever will because it is amazing!! Well done Joseph - we will be back!!
