    Arrived as a walk in on Aussie Day and was directed to top bar area for about 10min wait then seated.
    Service was exceptional and food was delicious 🤤, the Seafood Tutto had beautiful tasty seafood throughout, Aussie Burger and chips were
    … More amazing and kids fish and chips was perfect and huge. We also tried the 🐊 croc spring rolls and they were absolutely flavourful and left you wanting more (even know we were in a food coma) 🤤 thanks for a wonderful visit and will definitely be back before we head home.

    We visited The Tin Shed twice whilst we were in Port Douglas. Firstly for sundowners on the terrace and secondly for a quick lunch on the deck before setting off home. Both experiences were first class and the crocodile spring rolls were … More yummy as my wife said. Definitely worth a visit and highly recommended for watching the boats come in of an evening.

    The most amazing food. We did not expect that in a local place looking ordinary, sorry! The view from the deck Is very nice. On Sundays, expect lots of people and about half an hour wait for a table. So popular! In the meantime, you can … More enjoy a drink upstairs.

We were given a table near the … More water which was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were served quick and the food was yummy. There were disabled toilets and a lift to get up to the bar upstairs.
