I'll be back...

I am not sure if 'wanky' is a word but pretentious certainly is... and the menu reads as such. But I've been here several times over the years and forget the fancy words, the food is done to a high standard. Plus it is spacious, and has a nice location in a historic precinct. A bit more seafood... read more

Wonderful setting with a fantastic array of fine foods to devour. The waiting staff were more than helpful and the food was cooked to perfection in every choice we made. Would recommend a visit here and will be back again soon to sample some more delights.

My friend and I came here and had an excellent lunch. We both had the French onion soup (served in a cob loaf) which was both tasty and cute. For the main I had the beef cheek with mushroom ragout, gnocchi and gorgonzola cream. Delicious. Service was attentive and efficient. I would recommend a meal here.

Possibly the best meal I have ever had!! Had "fish and chips" for main and this just melted in my mouth then followed this with a chocolate dessert which was to die for!!! Will definitely return to this place and thoroughly recommend.

This is one of Wellington's older and better restaurants with an emphasis on seafood. It is very large inside and on a Sunday night it felt a little empty. However, the service here is wonderful and the meals delightful. We had a four course meal for Wellington on a Plate which was probably a little more food than we felt... More

I came here for dinner with my brother. We had the fish and chips, which was very tasty. The dining area is tastefully decorated and has low lighting. The service was excellent, our waiter was friendly and attentive. Would recommend.

My wife and I have visited Shed 5 for lunch or dinner in total four times in December 2014 and July-August 2015. Our experience is that the food and service is good.

I wouldn’t call myself a seasoned foodie or anything remotely similar, but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to enjoying writing the odd review on local restaurants I have dined at and visited. Opening Zomato, TripAdvisor or web pages on my phone while on the go, writing a review on my way to work or checking in when I... More
