Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

1 hour drive from Sydney, the Akuna Bay is beautiful. This restaurant has the perfect location - uniquely sat alongside the boats and yachts in the bay it has the opportunity to be a must-do day trip for City-livers. We ordered the octopus and Fisherman’s basket which was very well presented and tasted fresh. The food actually arrived very quickly, however... we ordered drinks with the meal including a mojito cocktail which never came. As none of the staff check in on you during your meal we queued back up and when at the counter asked to see where the cocktail was, we were told it was ‘just being made’. Another ten minutes passed after seeing the same front of house employee helping set a couple up canoeing and eventually it came well after we finished eating. No apology no gesture of goodwill by taking off the bill. Shame really... has the potential for a great place but will never truly make the cut until management really invest in improving their customer service.

It was a rainy Sunday but the Shed is bright and cheery. Pleasant welcome by staff and orders duly provided at the bar. Food was generally good including pancakes, eggs with the lot and coffees. The hot breakfasts suffered from being served on cold plates which resulted in bacon which was completely cold. As the eggs were perfectly poached an improvement in timing of service (plating) would add up to a great breakfast.

Great food and service in a lovely location. We shared a dish of scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato, chorizo links, avocado and toast with tomato relish. We also shared the buttermilk pancakes with blueberries, syrup and bacon. The meals were good serves and delicious. The only downside were annoying flies.

The Shed at Akuna Bay Management, We drove 25 minutes from our home in Mona Vale to Akuna Bay to purposely have lunch at The Shed. We had not been for years, and wanted to visit again, ahead of a rather large booking for early April. Having paid the $12 fee for entry into the National Park, we arrived to discover that your menu is now only for take away and the food is currently placed in a cardboard box. There is no reduction in fee and no table service. These details had not been advertised on the website. A website is for imparting information, however, you forgot to mention this detail! At the very least, you should offer a reduced menu price when you are not offering your food to be eaten on plates! I am sure your clientele would appreciate this. We did not stay. We decided to return to a favourite restaurant of ours, Sandstone Café in Terrey Hills, where we always have good service and good food, always served on plates, and a better variety, at a similar price to your menu, and sometimes cheaper. We will not be returning to The Shed, so please ignore my email of this morning regarding another lunch for 10 March. If you think I have gone to the trouble to advise you by email, you may also wish to read my review on Trip Advisor!

We often visit Kuring-gai Chase NP and almost always find time to stop in at The Shed for a coffee and a cake or a muffin ... or even a plate of churros. It is located in a beautifully sheltered and peaceful spot on Akuna Bay and it's a delight looking over the water from here. Unfortunately, have not eaten at their (upmarket) restaurant - it's always a break for coffee and then we're back on the track. They even offer an oversized chessboard on which we were able to have a quick game during one visit.

Food was not bad but a bit expensive for what was served. Service was very average. Staff rude when it took an additional 20 minutes for one of our guests meals to arrive.

first time visiting this restaurant by the waterside at Akuna Bay, Ku Ring Gi Chase National Park. Great peaceful environment and delicious lunch food on offer. The Fish tacos and Calamari dishes in particular were just a delight washed down with just the right Italian Pinot Grigio. I know where I am going the next time I am in that neck of the woods!

What a great find, so close to Sydney. Awesome food, great service, keen prices set right on the Harbour edge. What’s not to like?

Generous servings, the full English breakfast plus the Italian donuts with fruit was decadent and lovely. Escape the news, come down to the quiet and peaceful Shed in the fresh air of the national park... for delicious coffee and food plus friendly service!

Eaten here now 3 times and always good. My wife tells me the fish tacos are to doe for and I always enjoy a classed up bacon and egg roll. The coffee is good as is the outlook.

We we went to the Shed last Saturday for brunch at 11am. It was a cold, rainy day but we still had a lovely experience in this beautiful location. We ordered the buttermilk pancakes with bacon, maple syrup and blue berries. Also scrambled eggs, bacon, chorizo, avocado and herb salad with tomato relish. The staff were welcoming and they went out of their way to provide excellent customer service and a great dining experience. The food was delicious. Be sure to visit West Head Lookout afterwards.

Feeling ripped off after buying a Scoopon voucher for $109 to arrive and find the normal price was $118. Only $9 more....seriously!!! Waited 30 minutes for our first course which comprised of a cold oyster dish and cold prawn slider. Neither dish was cooked and that was after needing to ask where our meal was. Final course had half a grilled balmain bug which was raw and 3 mussels, all of them with broken shells. Despite the blatant misleading deal. I would not return for the food anyway and definitely when the price off the so called deal does not even cover the $12 park entry. Disappointing Sunday brunch is an understatement!

The location seemed ideal given the hype. Overlooking a boat parking lot is not my idea of fun. It was a sunny day and the blue sky and bush covered hills made up for it. The food was not different to other breakfast outlets. The need to queue at the counter to order was ordinary. The pleasant lass behind the counter found it hard to keep up with the constant queue of cyclists. Service was slow because they were understaffed. Beware cyclists on the winding road, particularly at weekends. I understand the distant location makes for higher costs. Having to pay to enter the park ($12) was a blow. Beware seniors, the entrance here can’t sell you a discounted yearly pass because they don’t have internet or a computer.

My friend and I stopped by the Shed for a late lunch. We ordered the basket of mixed fried baramundi, shrimps and calamari, which came with fries. We also ordered a side salad of shaved fennel with carrots and other veggies. Everything was fresh, well presented and simply delicious. We had a lovely view of the harbor too. I would go there again!
