We have just returned from our 2nd visit to Goa, and can honestly say this beach shack is fantastic. We are beach people (rather than pool people) and with temperatures in the 90-95 the sea breeze was very welcome. We visited this beach shack everyday and were bowled over by the friendliness of the staff who were very happy to... More

Visited The Starfish last week and received the usual welcome from Anthony and his boys. The shack offers a wide menu all cooked to order. We had a delicious meal of garlic prawns and calamari followed by giant prawns and biriani. Along with 2 cokes, a large bottle of water and a beer the bill came to approximately £22, very... More

Nice cold kingfisher and Schweppes tonic were the highlight of the drinks. The food is very good and good value for money. Anthony the boss,Joseph... More

The Star Fish beach shack serves brilliant food. Anthony, John and Jacob, are lovely and can't do enough to make your visit memorable. Sat watching the sunset with a cold drink. Sublime. Even saw a group of dolphins swimming up the coast.

Modest beachwalk north from the Hyatt. Hard rubber table, plastic chairs on the sand. Really? Liked Antony though and ordered tandoori kingfish (mackeral cousin) and garlic naan. Sun went down, boys playing soccer went home, pleasant dog visited, candle put on the table, and then the superbly seasoned and perfectly cooked fish arrived - delicious with moist Goan rice and...

Real and tasty Indian food with Goan flavour. A lot of sea food that was excellent and freshly prepared. Their kitchen is small (probably why they don't have more than 20 sun-loungers at any one time). We tried curry, soup and the fresh Lobster: wonderful food and very reasonably priced. The guests are Indians, west europeans and excellent and enjoyful... More

Just returned from Goa and spent a few days with Joe and Jack. Great seafood, had jumbo prawns every day as they were so delicious. Fantastic to have them on the beach as its a pretty hot walk from hotel even if it's just a few minutes. Long cold drink, sunbeds and shade and great food whenever you want it.... More

Spent nearly every day in the shack, Antony, Jack and Joseph very attentive, this is our 4th year in Goa. We can recommend the following butter chicken, lobster, crab, tiger prawns, biryani, and more. Must go in the evening and watch the most beautiful sunsets.
