Description: we used this Breeze Bar situated right on the beach for lunch & dinner, the speciality was the whole lobster but we choose the fresh prawns with pleanty of trimmings. A lot of people use the Shack from the cruise boats at lunchtime then many local people hix in with the Marriot Hotel gests for dinner. Thursday nights are perticularly populary as they have a bonfire on the beach (no trouble with smoke as the wind is always off shore in high season) Friday & Saturday evening can be crowded and it is advised to book early on these days, Reasonable prices and good portions, book for a beach table if you want to hear yourself heard, Also does boat trips/ sport fishing, loverly sunsets if you get thier before 6pm.

“Fun Times on Thursdays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Go on a Thursday. They have a fire on the beach and a fire dancer runs around later in the evening doing a fire dance and a limbo. Watch out for the guy with the monkey that stands in the parking lot. He'll put a monkey on you, try to take your photo with the monkey, and then try to charge money. Luckily, I read a review ahead of time and dodged that. He was rude too. The shack was a great place to get drinks and dance a little too. Take bug spray. We got bit up the first time we went there. Good, cheap fish sandwich.

“Very casual, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We ate here twice at night. Once on a regular nite, and once with a live band and bon-fire on the beach. Great casual atmosphere eating on the beach at picnic tables. The service was quick and the food was good. About a 1/2 hour walk from the Marriot.

“Over rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

Arrived early on a Thursday Night for the lobster special,So we got a great picnic table out by the water. Wasn't to impressed with the food, just ok. Saw the fire dancer perform, good show. More hype for this place then I think it deserves.

“Hey Diggity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This place is idyllic in it's own way. It is literally a shack on the beach where you eat with toes in the sand. The bar was a little limited. No margaritas, but daiquiris. The night we went we wanted lobster, but they were out of them as well as snapper. So we settled on the ribs platter. An ample amount of pork ribs were tender and tasty. They were served with rice and pupkin
