While some restaurants can struggle to coordinate larger groups, I found the service to be relaxed, efficient, accurate without being too intrusive. The food was delivered to each guest without anybody waiting for more than a moment. It was a good menu and the chef did an excellent job.

Went for a business lunch, the food was very good with a nice selection of fresh fish. When i went there were very few people eating which contributed to a rather average atmosphere.

Sought refuge from the wind and rain. Very attentive staff. Cost was a little high but quality was superb. Recommend the mixed mussels.

We stopped over in Wellington for a couple of days before heading North. After some shopping time in the main city centre we walked down to the Wharf area - a really pleasant place to stroll (with lots of runners passing you by). Having looked at the menu of a few of the restaurants we decided on Shed 5 and... More

Ambient setting, exposed beams, funky decor....and then the food - delicious seafood and meats with a blend of flavours and textures. Not to be missed!

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.
