We regularly eat here, my partner eats gluten free for health reasons and they make a great GF salt and pepper squid! My daughter loves their Southern Fried Chicken and the other daughter likes their pizza. Really friendly staff and great prices! Nice atmosphere.

I am the owner of Adelaide's top food and wine tours. This was our second visit to this restaurant for breakfast (a day off from touring.) This time the coffee was great. The food excellent and the service was very friendly and fast. I can highly recommend Tin Shed for a great place to eat.

The food is really good and the pizza was amazing! The staff are very friendly and the prices are reasonable considering the area. Definitely worth a visit.

Great menu, not the same boring breakfasts on offer, a little different and very delicious. Love the rustic restaurant.

We have had breakfast here on both or our most recent trips to McLaren Vale. It has the usual offerings for breakfast, with decent coffee and it appears several gluten free options, for those that need that.

Having read some of the reviews, I expected an interesting menu from a cafe that was interested in food - but no - very limited choice - burgers, seafood, pizzas. The seafood was heavily crumbed - very average. Overall, a disappointing lunch - we will not return.

We decided to try this cafe as we thought we could have a nice lunch then continue on with our discovery of McLaren Vale. Decided it looked nice and there were lots of people sitting at tables. The staff were quick to seat us and the atmosphere was pleasant. The menu was very limited but the food looked good as... More

we went for lunch, both had the seafood platter. At $23 not bad. Crumbed prawns, fish and tender calamari plus chips and a small salad in separate bowl. Pleasant setting on the main road at McLaren Vale, we ate outside and watched a bike race peddle past three times, an added bonus. I had a beer, she had a coffee... More

We had both breakfast & dinner at the Tin Shed and received excellent service on both occasions. The food was great and menu had a good choice. I would be happy to go back.
