Our Philosophy

Wine craves food.

We’re passionate about our seasonal menu, and we’re passionate about our global wine list. Most of our wine list is available by the glass so that you can experience a variety of tastes for your palate. We’ll help you step outside your comfort zone and try varieties or styles that you may not have tried before. And we’ll recommend some great dishes to bring out the best flavours in the wines. 

Most people think of ‘small plates’ or ‘tapas’ and think of three small bites of food. We’re all about an entrée sized plate where you can savour the food and still have more than a mouthful! Our menu is influenced by simple and honest cooking from around the world.

Why are we different? Because we care about the highest levels of food and wine service, and strive to give you a dining experience that you would not expect to find in a ‘rural’ environment. Our passionate and experienced team will encourage you to try food and wine that you may not have tried before, and feel like you are part of something special.

Every night is an occasion at The Tasting Shed.

We've made the 2014 Metro Top 50 Restaurants List - that's three years running.

Thanks to all our staff and customers for making this happen. We couldn't have done it without you.
