We had dinner here one evening and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. The food was very good and the restaurant had a good atmosphere. It was very busy but we got our food in good time and would return again!

Dropped into this shack by chance while doing a long beach trek yesterday. Found the service polite, spent time resting having a coke. It was high tide time and the view of the sea was good. Even though the temperatures have risen the shack was quite cool due to its construction.

I have tried many beach shacks in Goa but Spotty's is definitely my favourite. The food here is amazing and the staff are so friendly. Especially Ashok, he does the best sheesha's :)

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.
