Almost worth 5 stars ....

Cuisine and service were five star and of course the location and the aspect are enticing. Windy conditions are the norm in Wellington, so please resolve the issues with the doors - continually swinging open in the breeze.

Shed 5 had a wonderful atmosphere of efficiency but attentive staff and happy customers. The location is ideal right on the waterfront so that you can see the boats etc. Superb food, delicious flavours and excellent service.

Excellently prepared fish. We were spoilt for choice. Their fresh catch is a good bet. I will just have to return and try some more of the menu! :-) Will need to save up, mind you.

we came here to celebrate a special birthday. Although I had been before many of the party had not. Everyone was very impressed. Great food, and they provided a fab birthday cake.

We came here over Easter weekend with friends from Brazil hoping to showcase top-quality contemporary New Zealand fare. Everything was as we expected, excellent wine, beer & aperitifs selection, service that went the extra mile BUT everyone's meal was just way too salty - I am a sodium freakwho was normally reaching for the salt shakerbut this one had me...

Near to full restaurant - a sign of quality and popularity! Food and service were first class and a very fitting end to our stay in Wellington. The Assiette (entree) and the Market Fish (Groper) were standouts.

Nice room and tables in a converted wool warehouse. We had lovely food and good wine - Hawkes Bay lamb rump and Hawkes Bay shiraz. The only negative comment I have is that the cheese plate was a rip off. NZ$28 for 3 tiny slivers of cheese and a few horrible biscuits. The lamb however was to die for.
