The meals and presentation were amazing, probably the best value for money in the whole area. Very creative meal compositions, if you're looking for an exceptional dinner experience, look no further! The Tasting Shed also offers a courtesy shuttle. We will be back soon.

The food was really nice. Nice portions for both of us as we ate not much. The service was professional, although not exceptional. The env was nice, the decor offered warmth feeling. Just my personal feeling that the wine list was a bit a disappointment.

I was expecting good but I got excellent! I could rave about this place. The food was just perfect, the service good but unobtrusive. Seriously, the food was excellent. The last time I felt this enthusiastic was after the Pipe and Glass in England, this...More
