The Beach Shack is about 5km from the main street of Port Douglas but well worth the drive. The food was some of the best we had on this holiday and the staff were friendly and helpful. They have found a great balance between relaxed and attention to detail. Like most places in Port Douglas, be sure to book. This... More

Amazing food away from the main strip of restaurants. It was virtually full at 630pm on a Wednesday evening when we arrived so we thought the food would be good and it most definitely was ! They serve a good range of entrees and main dishes so there was plenty for my husband and children to choose from. We chose... More

We took our 3 kids to both the pizza/tapas bar and the restaurant and both were great. Tapas were really tasty and the spicy prawn pizza really good! Staff are great for such a busy place and fairly quick service. The restaurant was really nice a still casual although with a quiet elegance and great food. The lychee mojito was... More

The food and service that we had at the Beach Shack on 22 August was absolutely superb. We had dinner in the restaurant which offered a great range of food for all taste buds. The atmosphere and setting was chilled out - especially the sand floor. The staff seemed happy and our waitress was fantastic going out of her way... More

We recently attended the restaurant for pizza. You could dine in the restaurant for more fine dining options or go out the back for pizza/ tapas. The main part of the restaurant was booked out so we opted for the pizza. We enjoyed the very fresh and well cooked pizza. The tapas also looking interesting. You can also grad takeaway... More

We didn't eat in the restaurant side because it was always fully booked.... tells you something. We ate at the pizza/take away side 3 times in a short period. The pizzas and tapas were good value and very tasty. This part was also busy. It seemed that the beach Shack was used well by locals and tourists. A greta place... More

We went here this evening and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was spot on, friendly and efficient - especially our waiter from New Zealand!! The decor is a little different, the sand floor and canvas roof give a lovely casual atmosphere. Our meal was delivered in good time and entre, mains and dessert all spot on. I would recommend...
