The best meal of my entire Tasmania trip, and in fact it could be the best fish dish I have ever eaten in my life. I'll leave the review at just that line, the stunning view and lovely service have already been mentioned countless times.

Fresh oysters were great, Ocean Trout delicious, I was not planning to have dessert, but the food is so good I had to, no worries here.

Awesome seafood (even the people who were travelling with us and said they don't normally like fish loved it!), staff were really friendly, setting is amazing with a view of the water. Can't say anything negative!

Travelling from Launceston, we pulled into St Helens late on a Monday evening and took a punt on the Blue Shed without knowing anything about the place. To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement! The setting over the harbour is beautiful. The staff were warm, welcoming and attentive. We ordered the squid, flat head and ocean trout, all... More

Ted J had no idea how poorly his wife was behaving in our restaurant, we see his review as a misguided attempt to justify his wife's behaviour. More

Marcia J entered our restaurant and demanded Takeaway as apparently we were the only business open in our small town at that time of night. She was told politely that Blue Shed did not offer takeaway but she was very welcome to dine with us. She left to discuss this possibility with her husband and returned somewhat agitated and demanded... More

I hadn't researched this before we hit St. Helens for an overnight stop, so came to Blue Shed on the recommendation of our host after having a wander around the area. Location could not be better and I'm a sucker for anywhere with water & boats, so we were pleased they found us a table without a reservation. Everything about... More
