Always made welcome by Bobby and the rest of the team, only a 5 minute walk from Whispering Palms Beach Resort, extensive food and drinks menu at very reasonable prices, fresh Tiger prawns, pomfret, kingfish, chips, salad, rice, free sun beds, a great day out

This is a shame in the name of shack- their food was pathetic and service equally bad. You should never go here - they have the potential to spoil your good mood - you may just want to buy a beer and chill - food a strict NO

They look after our bags when we go for our morning walk and always had a drink ready for us on our return. Will be back again next... More

Ganesh and Yeshi were as wonderful and welcoming as ever and all the rest of the staff were just as great. Everyone is friendly,... More

Having read a few good reviews for this place I thought I would give it a go. Service was nice and friendly. But unfortunately that was the only positive. I had a Prawn Curry with rice, it was bland with no flavour. I also had some spring rolls these where also awful. We also had chicken tikka it was a... More
