Took a chance at 730pm on a Friday night and called for a reservation. They said they were fully booked but could offer us a 'bench' at the front. 'Bench' booked for 830pm. When we arrived a table then because available and they offered it to us. For some reason we decided to order a bottle of Cava. Was a good choice as it was perfectly crisp, refreshing and served at just the right temperature. For starter I had crispy squid, again it was just right. The breadcrumbs were clean, light and crispy and the squid

We went to this place shortly after it opened expecting much but left feeling disappointed and a bit blinded by the ridiculously bright lamps that the chefs used to keep the food warm until the staff could take it to us. The lamps were far too big and bright for such a small place and would have been funny if they weren't so off-putting. The food was distinctly average for an eatery offering the 'quintessential bistro experience' and the staff were oblivious to how uncomfortable we were eating under lamps that could have been used to light Windsor Park. We went back again recently and the food was still average although the place is still as bright as ever.

Thank you very much for your comments and review. We appreciate you sharing your feedback with us! Fair comment on the gantry lights when we first opened 10 months ago in November 2012. We did have the gantry lights re-engineered shortly after opening which I hope you noticed favourably on your second visit. Elsewhere, restaurant lighting is all zone and rheostat controlled and we are more than happy to make adjustments requested by our guests. Thank you again, and I do hope you will stop by and try our new lunch, dinner and Shed Sunday menus. Eithne

Went here for lunch with a friend. Had a beautiful starter of breads, oil and a simply delicious tapenade. For main I had the smoked fish salad which was divine. Because the food was so good we had a dessert. I had the brownie and omg I had to return again.just for this. Food in here is gorgeous and have since returned and will defo be back. Excellent.

We've been to Shed about 3 or 4 times now. Dinner with a group of friends, Sunday lunch with a baby and a few other week day lunches. It never disappoints. The menu caters for everyone, the food is delicious and the service is always exceptional. The staff are always very welcoming and couldn't do enough for you.

We were back today and again it was great as usual. We got to look at the new menu and are looking forward to trying it. It really is a hidden gem that you should try.

Can't fault anything & highly recommend it.

Sometimes life gets in the way and you momentarily forget how important it is to praise a wonderful meal experience. So let me start with my apologies that it has taken this long. I have visited Shed twice now and given the most hospitable welcome by the restaurant owner on both occasions. The food is literally to die for and is presented with such perfection it is almost too good to savour. They also cater favourably the carnivore and the vegetarian alike which hard to find in my opinion. The staff a familiar without being overt and work hard to ensure the service is seamless. The chefs love what they are creating in the kitchen and this is reflected in every detail that makes up the dish. If you are not rushing back, I would definitely advise you try on another pair of trainers because this place is certainly worth a visit on one two and many more occasions for me I am sure.
