The shack is average during the day time but is a great place to be during evening times where they serve on candle light mini table right on the beach. However it has a very small menu , no drinks only beers. The food was also average hence wont rate it great.

We spent an evening there, and it was a really good time spent. Food was good and we liked it so much that we sat in the shack for couple of hours even after it was closed, just to enjoy the night sea

If you want to know what it feels like to enter the gates of heaven go to Monico's and pull up a seat facing the Arabian Sea and order a Prawn Masala accompanied with 4 BUTTER roti. We've done so for the last 3 days in a row. The only problem is you can eat like lunch only one time... More
