The quality of the food makes this place stand out from the rest.

Shed 5 is located on Queens Wharf and this alone helps to add to the overall dining experience. Sometimes ambience can over shadow the service level and the quality of the food but there is no doubt that Shed 5 delivers on both of these. The waiters are very attentive and do an excellent job in... read more

Great place for clams by the scoop. Quite busy place, but one can get a drink at the fancier attached restaurant while waiting.

Over complicated food, flavors didn't work well together. Very expensive for the food quality and poor beer choice

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. The hand-written notice on one door invited guests to close the door behind them, but the mechanism for holding them closed is... More

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 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...

Hi Geoff N, Thank you very much for your great feedback. All comments, positive and negative, are welcome; it's really important for us to be able to identify any issues and fix them.
