We have been visiting the Tin Shed in Port Douglas, Queensland since it was, well a tin shed. It is now a modern establishment with one of the best views in Far North Queensland. The food is wonderful, the service is FAST and friendly and watching the boats returning from the reef is priceless. Try to arrive early to get... More

An unexpected delight! It is a tin shed that backs onto the river. It has views right across to the other side of not only the river but also up the Daintree. Great food! Excellent and friendly service! A must for a relaxing long lunch!

Had dinner for two on the Thursday night during schools holidays. Arrived at around 6:30 pm and as expected for the school holidays, the venue was busy especially with the younger families. No problems getting a table for 2 next to the water on the balcony. Dinner was served promptly, it was tasty and reasonably priced. Good venue for the... More

A good selection of reasonably price cocktails, comfortable couches, friendly staff. Watch the boats coming in from the day's fishing and sight seeing. If the weather gods are generous you can watch the sunset over the distance.

We came here was because we couldn't get a table anywhere else. Family of four - had basket of prawns, chile con carne, sirloin and kids spaghetti. All meals were average, Service was ok, except for the two girls behind the counter who argued over who to serve me when I went to order. I would not recommend this place... More

Friendly staff even on very busy night. Best to go after sunset for a meal, very busy otherwise. Have a drink upstairs and wait for the crowd to disappear,ask for table close to water.

This is a nice place right on the edge of Port Douglas over looking the water. The workers were friendly and the prices pretty good. The food came out within 5 minutes of ordering which made us question the freshness of the pork & fish dishes. Overall not bad if you want a quick decent priced meal, but dont expect... More
