Don’t be deceived by its simple exteriors and ambience. Joel’s Shack on the pristine Betalbatim beach, a little north of the crowded Colva beach, serves some of the best seafood around. And they only serve the big fish like lobsters, kingfish, seabass, tiger prawns, red snappers, etc. Their forte is the European-style seafood done in a variety of wine sauces and grilled or baked. We recommend you try their baked red snapper or pomfret, served with asparagus for a divine eating experience right on the beach. The fish served is also the freshest you can get, and to enliven the proceedings, you can try one of their in-house cocktails like the Bull Dog - which is a combination of dark rum and white rum. They also serve some good pastas and salads, which are also way above average in taste. It’s a great place to spend a long day on the beach and you can lounge around on a beach bed with your drink and food. What’s more, this is one of the quietest beach stretches in Goa. They also have a very limited menu of Indian, Goan and Chinese dishes, but they specialize in European dishes.
