Had the best pizza at the Shack. Nice to be seated and have your feet in the sand as the outside seating area is covered in sand. Great for the kids as a novelty.

Absolutely brilliant food we couldn’t fault it. Thai green curry for $17.50 absolutely brilliant deal. Pizzas and salads all looked delicious too. We’ve booked the restaurant side for tomorrow night it was booked out tonight. So a great place to go :-)

Amazing pizza but “The Mexican” was a bit too spicy (being someone who likes spicy food) Also, the garlic baguette was really good.

May be a good place to hang out with friends over a basic menu but not fine dining. Once we were finally offered a table, we were certainly ready to eat and had no complaints about the service or food
