Here are some of our estimated clients review over the place, food and hygiene

Lovely Meal

I found this place through trip advisor and visited as it sounded nice and I wasn't disappointed. Friendly staff and reasonable prices, when I attended everywhere was closing at 10 pm due to upcoming elections however I still had a lovely time and it meant I enjoyed my last drink of the evening in my apartment... less of a stumble to my bed, lol.

Best shack in Candolim

Spent 2 weeks in Candolim and majority of beach time was at Ryan's. Ryan is a great host and DJ. Free sun beds if you eat and drink and we did both !! Good prices and great staff. Clean toilets. Great BBQ night and happy hour early evening cheaper cocktails. Ryan and the team are a credit to Goa !! We will be back. Cheers Ryan !! (Mark, Jo, Pete and Steph)

Exotic place on the beach

An amazing place to spend an evening with friends with lovely views of the ocean. A nice menu of drinks and fresh seafood adds to the fervour topped up with the hospitality makes this place truly amazing .

A nice Family Shack

We went there, the whole family, it was a lovely evening on the eastern coast of India, on Candolim Beach... In Goa, the service was lovely, friendly and very nice. We were given good discount on food, and drinks also, the food was the best part if the evening, the Ryan Family treated us like their personal friends and served us delicious mouth watering vegetarian as well as seafood dishes... I strongly recommend this Shack... Food and Drinks are Great and very reasonably priced...

Our Favourite Place to Lunch

We are just back from a wonderful holiday in Goa and, unless we were out of the town, we chose to lunch at Ryans Shack every day we could. The team there are so friendly, helpful and obliging. They bend over backwards to help their customers. Just ask and if it is possible they will do it. The food there is really lovely, I can especially recommend the Biryani and the Butter Chicken. If you have particular food preferences they will work with you to provide food that will delight you. The vibe is really relaxed during the day, the wifi is great and the toilets are ultra clean. We can't wait to be back next year

Food and atmosphere

We are not long back from Goa. Even though we were all inclusive at our hotel we spent everyday on the beach at Ryan's shack. Staff friendly and nothing too much trouble. Food amazing especially the Chicken Pakoras and Onion Bhaji's Happy hour cocktails between 5p and 6p Made us very happy !!! Strawberry Mojito, Sex on the beach and Ryan's Kiss yummy. Always music playing in back ground but come about half 4 ish it got turned up and Ryan got on his decks. If you like the beach, good food and drinks with atmosphere this is the place for you.

Love This Place

Our second visit to Candolim and it certainly didn't disappoint. We visited Ryan's Shack two years ago as it was recommended by friends and came back this time, didn't use any other shacks. The food is superb, all the staff work extremely hard and are all very polite and friendly. Ryan makes time to speak to all his customers. We love the music and there's a really good vibe about the place and a great atmosphere. We haven't visited in the evening but would like to go to the BBQ next time we're there.

Best Shack on Candolim Beach

Me and my partner spent Christmas and New Year in Candolim. We tried many shacks but by far Ryans was our favourite, friendly helpful staff, good food and brilliant owner who actually plays the decks and djs everyday from about 4pm till late. If you want a shack with abit of life and good music then this is the place.

Great hospitality

The staff were all very approachable and friendly. They offered a variety of water sports and took us fishing too! There was an excellent selection of food and drink, particularly the barbecue and seafood dishes - they were memorable! Can't wait to book and come again!

Best shack in goa

This place is about good service and good food with an awesome host Ryan and super awesome beach view. Pros - pet friendly, good music, affordable rates. Note - wont need to go to any night club as host himself is a Dj.

Lovely comfortable shack

We loved their butter chicken and chicken fried rice mmmm will be going back in November.The staff are very courteous this was our favourite shack,the fireworks and fire eaters was a special touch one night.


Perfect for chilling with great music!

This was the best shack by far - including the extremely clean toilet, excellent service from all the staff and the great music sets played by the owner himself. I loved it at 4pm when the volume was turned up and we watched the sunset with a beer and some great EDM music being mixed by Ryan.

Ryans Shack, Great, Great, Great

Ryans Shack gets better every year. Great place on the beach to relax, and stay chilled along with the beer, and the food is excellent. Great staff, very attentive and keeping everything clean including the excellent toilet and shower facilities. Great music to chill through the day, and Ryan ramps it up after 4.00, brilliant.

Good place to chill out on the beach

This shack is located at the Candolim beach near Whispering palms beach resort. The Shack provides beach beds and is quite secure as they have cctv covering most of the areas. The ambiance is good, with hammocks & swing chairs around. The toilet is very clean. Food is good and the service is good too. Definitely worth a visit
