Breakfast lunch or dinner right by the sea just so relaxing. Beautiful simple food not too sophisticated; taste wise and price wise and that was the best part. You didn't have to fear picking up the menu as you do in most tourist places. there's something for everyone and a pleasure even just to sit around and enjoy the scenery.... More

the outlook of this club is beautiful with stunning views of the bay and of the rainforest. The food was just average and they could have had more of a choice on the menu. Their prices were reasonable in comparison to other restaurants in port douglas.

After so many bad experiences with the food places in Port Douglas this was a relief to find an honest business charging tourists affordable prices and good food. For $ 9.90 I ordered eggs on Turkish bread with plenty of bacon and an orange juice $3.50. The view was amazing. We were seated outdoors but undercover on the side of... More

This club was in the throws of renovations when we visited but we had no difficulties - good service; excellent location, right on the water and comfortable chairs and tables to while away a lovely Port Douglas afternoon.

Lovely food and well priced. The view is wonderful of the waterway and the boats coming and going. It was a torrential downpour and lovely watching the weather come and go over the hinterland.

Had breakfast there, food was pretty good, some of staff not real friendly, needed loads of ice for drinks but great view and not a bad atmosphere.

A must-do in Port Douglas. Great views over the water, the food and drinks are reasonably priced and the quality certainly stacks up. The bucket of prawns a highlight!

Thoroughly enjoyed drinks and dinner at the Tin Shed. Fabulous watching all the boats/yachts returning to dock. Drinks good dinner good. One word of advice take insect repellant with you.

We arrived a little late in the evening and were seated immediately. You get a table number and are seated. Then go the cashier and pay. Our food was soon served. I had Grilled Barramundi and my husband had a pesto pasta seafood platter along with a local beer. Both meals were very good and portions very generous. You have... More

To begin with, you are forced to fill out a form at the front before they will seat you. The menu is lacking, and we found the staff to be a bit rough and rude. The drink prices are perhaps the best thing about the restaurant. It’s a shame, with the location and view, this could be a good restaurant... More
