The Blue Shed has been sold and the new owners are completely changing the decor, menu and marketing. The web site is down and the url has lapsed. Telephone calls get a recorded message asking people to leave contact details. Restaurant is allegedly reopening at the end of January 2016

The restaurant has a magnificent ocean view but I didn't find it too amazing as you can easily relax by the pier next to it. There were only one waitress who is also the receptionist and also the cashier. Maybe it wasn't peak hours (2pm) so only a few tables were left (30% full) . She systematically asked us to... More

Would definitely go back but not for the atmosphere. The food is fresh, local and well cooked. The views at dusk are sensational but the general vibe is lacking something...maybe music.

Was told on booking there would be a New year's eve set menu but only a standard menu with fish and chips was offered. Entrees were fine. Dreadful service. Aperitive drinks arrived after 20 minutes wait at the same time as the entrees. Not a slice of bread was offered before that and when I asked fot bread the waitress... More

Hubby and I dined here whilst visiting the St Helens area after seeing recommendations online. They offered a three course set menu for $50 per head with a few options for each course. I had the crispy squid with japanese mayo and meso paste. I could have quite happily kept eating this all night. My next course was fish of... More

Unique 3 course dinner menu for $55 per person. Clearly over priced. Entrees were OK. Main were quite bad: overcooked fish, and just a standard fish and chips style fisherman basket. The quality of the deserts were the same as a random bakery. View is OK. They've also asked us to come a bit before 6.30pm because "many people would... More

We had fish and chips takeaway as the restaurant was closed. No matter there are a few picnic tables on the grassy area outside the restaurant. The fish, chips, calamari and fishermans baskets were great. lightly and crispy. Just the thing for a lunch in a small country town. Service was good from a friendly staff.

Restaurant was closed for a few days during my visit. We had fish and chips, twice! Was good enough to go back a few days later. Highly recommend upgrading to blue eye or flathead. Really friendly service

Good seafood. Fantastic water view, quiet enough to talk. Oysters were good, squid appetizer tasty, lovely spring greens in rocket salad with vinaigrette. Blue eye was excellent, cooked perfectly on a need of mashed potatoes and peas.
