Except for the delicious scallop starters, I do not remember exactly what I had for dinner (I visited several months ago). I do distantly recall that both the food and service were magical. Although certainly not inexpensive, the Shed 5 experience was distinctly better than a $100/pp meal I had in Sydney the night before.

Excellent service at one of the best restaurants in Wellington. Fish was a little over cooked so left it but everything else excellent. Great location. Consistent performers in a crowded market.

After going to the sister restaurant for lunch (crab shack) we were recommended Shed 5 for an evening meal and it didn't disappoint. I had the spaghetti vongole to start and it was possibly the tastiest meal I've ever had. Utterly delicious. My husband and I shared the whole red snapper which was also fantastic. Couldn't fault this place at... More

Have been to shed 5 a few times but this was the first since the revamp. The food was beautiful, well prepared. It looked and tasted amazing. The tiramisu divine. Great place for a special dinner.

Visited here for the second time after a great meal here a year ago. This time was not quite as good as last time. The service was friendly and attentive on a very busy Saturday evening with the only problem being the menus which between the two of them had different prices for 4 of the items. One item in...

Not living in Wellington, and wanting a really nice dinner for a night out, I did a lot of research and came away that Shed 5 would fit the bill. It's hard to gauge the size and feel of a restaurant from either the website or other reviewer's pictures, but I wasn't prepared for the vastness of Shed 5's room.... More

This was, on a cold wet windy night, the best place for an excellent dining experience. The ambiance was subdued, and a little romantic with low lights so that you could see out of the windows into the wild night. The food turned out to be way beyond my expectations, service impeccable and a thoroughly good experience. We both started... More
