People wish to come goa on Candolim beach, but it is very dirty and food below average. Dig, cow are also enjoyed beach holiday with tourist. Restaurant /bar owner live their and we see poor toilet facilities. All five star hotel tourist provide the free service to beach, but not spend a single rupees on cleanness.

Of all the shacks along the beach, this is definitely the best one.. Friendly Staff make you feel at home and really go the extra mile to help you out. Food is delicious and nicely priced. Spotty himself is a gentleman and he'll look after your needs. Easy 5 stars

A decent joint – definitely better than our experience at Baga. We had not planned out eating at this shack. In reality wanted to use the wash rooms. Had no clue where to go, even the life guards were not very supportive. This was the first outlet we saw. Checked out about wash rooms from them, was informed that we... More

We had North Indian food and it was delicious beyond our expectations , since the place looked like a average Shack. there is also a swing which kids with us enjoyed. Right on Candolim beach which is less crowded and cleaner than nearby calangute.

The staff were friendly, by the end we knew all the... More

Very average shack food is pathetic and no taste.Staff is rude always ready to fight.They will charge you for sunbeds as well even if you are having food and drinks from them.Very shady & non hygienic staff, please avoid at anycost.
