Service was quick, it was Monday night though. I ordered the pasta and meatball special. It wasn't bland but it wasn't overly tasty either. The meatballs looked like processed/packet supplied not made with love at home type. Pasta was almost over cooked. Serving size was generous. They have a good variety on their menu. My friends salad with grilled calamari... More

A great place to stop and have a drink or meal after going for a walk along the waterfront. There will be something for everyone to choose from.

We dined at the wharf cafe shed cafe last night for dinner (5 kids and 4 adults). We found the menu limited, but chose a range of entrees and mains. The food was dismal. Our San choy bau was so oily, that the oil came out in a steady drizzle while in the lettuce casing. Salmon from the specials board... More

The atmosphere was by far the best element of the evening. First we had to hand over a credit card, or pay up front, just in case we did a runner. Did we really look that dodgy? Then the waitress, as delightful as she was; could offer no comment about the food other that "that one's good", "that one's good... More

We've been here often enough before, so we lowered our expectations (come here for the location more than anything else). When we got seated, the waitress said "It's full table service. Bottles of water are available over there". We laughed because that's typical for the Wharfshed - you end up finding your own service. The food is tasty but not... More

Although parking can be difficult, the service was very friendly. My mother and I shared a falafel wrap and a small chips and were both extremely satisfied. Considering the place has concrete floors, it was not so noisy that we couldn't hear each other talk. The place was busy but the food came out in about 10 minutes. The menu... More

Pretty disappointed with the food. Service was so so. Definitely too expensive for what we got. The restaurant was packed through.

Quite a disappointment considering the venue has a prime position. Went there for lunch with the family. Found the meals very 'cookie cutter' and sub par. The southern fried chicken burger was missing tomato and lettuce looked to be yesterday's. The Reuben was such a disappointment, looked and tasted like the chef was tired and over life. A few tips...
