Great view

We normally arrive in Port Douglas around lunch time, and have made a habit the last couple of years of heading strait to the Tin Shed. It is a nice way to get re acquainted with Port Douglas. Sitting out on the deck looking out over the inlet having a cold drink and bite to eat. The food is nice... read more

Maybe it was my choice but I my Fishermans basket was over cooked and too many chips. At $25 it wasn't acceptable. Won't rush back too many good restraunts at this price for lunch.

There is no doubt that the tin shed has a great view. This place was not as I expected. The vibe is a bit stuck up, although most people attending are super casual. The vibe came from the staff, when I asked if they served mocktails the bar lady scoffed at me and replied 'no'! We timed out visit perfectly... More

Great venue recently renovated with wheelchair access . Upstairs has comfortable lounges and has a great outlook over the inlet where one can watch all the boats returning from the reef . After happy hour drinks upstairs , a meal is enjoyed downstairs with great food and lots of variety. Great place for families and there is a room off... More

A totally relaxed, casual dining experience. Go for the sunset if you can. Amazing, stunning sea views right on the water and exceptional value for money. It's a club so you need to sign in with a drivers licence or something. This is a very popular place, very busy, you often need to wait for a table. The upstairs bar... More

The restaurant overlooks the water. There is a great view across the Inlet and further beyond towards Daintree. It's spectacular at sundown. The food is simple fare but very well done. Fish and chips were divine as were the burgers. The food is nicely priced. A great way to finish off a day after being out and about exploring. Reasonably... More

Looking forward to a steak and was not disappointed. Might be the best and best value in Port Douglas. If you get here before 5:00 for a water side table you can also take advantage of the happy hour.

It's a club restaurant which we didn't know what it meant but once we signed in we had a great lunch overlooking the bay.

Our meals were delivered quite quickly considering all the tables were taken, they were all very nice and the sunset was absolutely beautiful! All the staff were friendly, I'd definitely eat there again.
