    Great lunch here today. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Caesar salad with prawns was absolutely delicious. Plenty of bacon, croutons and lovely white anchovies. The prawns were plump and fresh. I enjoyed the ginger beer on tap. … More Definitely would go back to this beaut restaurant with the lovely sea view.

    Great little gem! Enjoyed taking in the view, with delicious food! Staff are friendly and responsive & meals/drinks delivered without too much of a wait. As "not locals", the heat & humidity quickly got to us (we visited … More at lunch, it's not air conditioned) so didn't stay as long as we'd planned to.

    Just had our 3rd visit to Tin Shed since arriving in Port last week. The location overlooking the entrance to the marina is second to none. This is not fine dining but the food is great value. It is fresh, plentiful and very well prepared. … More Staff are helpful and friendly and a special mention to Sandie for going out of her way to make us feel welcome.
    Delighted to recommend Tin Shed and a big THANK YOU to all the staff for doing an excellent job.

    Excellent value for money menu. Well presented and tasty food. Very good service from polite professional staff. Exception is the bar attendant who doesn't say thank you.
