What a wonderful place to have a drink, meal, watch the boats on the water and the spectacular sunset over the mountains. The meals and drinks were well priced and enjoyable.

Well, at dusk this place rocks with everyone hurrying to get their happy hour drinks and a seat for the view of the sinking sun over misty hills and water..........so relaxing, and those birds...like being in an aviary! Was really great to be offered a normal or large glass of wine, saved time getting up and down and missing out... More

Have eaten here in the past and always enjoyed my meal. Disappointed with my recent visit. The food was not as good as in the past , but still enjoyed the lovely view. Won't be rushing back.

I'm up here for a much needed break and have eaten at the Tin Shed twice in the week. Absolutely amazing views. Great food!! I had the soft shelled mud crab burger which was to die for, and today I tried the fettuccine marinara. It was so tasty and full of fresh seafood. The best part are the $4.50 frozen... More

Wow...what a view!! You sit at a table and go up and order when you are ready. Alcohol is served at a separate bar but both very easily accessable. A group of 6 of us had rented a condo for 5 days. The condo owner said this was one of their favorite places to go. Although they are under renovation... More

This is the second time I have eaten at Tin Shed, both times have been a great dining experience. Great place for a club style meal, a drink and a beautiful view. Excellent atmosphere, staff very friendly and accommodating after we requested to be put in a particular area. Can't wait to see it once the current renovations have been... More

Don't be put off by the construction hording, the deck on the river has magical views at sunset and the food is reasonably priced. Staff were nice too. Seemed popular so get there early rather than later for a riverside table.

This is paradise in Port Douglas. Despite the fact renovations are in progress this hidden gem is a beaut spot for lunch or dinner. Great view, very pleasant staff and upmarket club food with small selection of good wines. We had lunch here three times this week! Highly recommend.

Recommended by a friend we had two lovely lunches here. The grilled Baramundi and the burger were both delicious. The view over the water is very relaxing. Definately recommend.
