We had 2 courses and had takeaway for dessert as it looked too good to miss. The atmosphere is excellent and so is the food. The seafood starters were excellent. Wine menu also excellent. Service was top notch, the wait staff were knowledgeable and knew the menu well. Worth visiting for a special meal

Its been a while since I've been to Shed 5 so when I got a voucher for their "Dine and Dash" deal I thought it was time to treat my lovely wife to lunch. I was glad to see the service was excellent, friendly helpful and professional. We had a choice of seating and sat by the window so we... More

Shed 5 sits proudly overlooking the harbour. Its housed in one of the oldest wharf stores on the waterfront. The large windows & wooden beams creates a rich & classy ambience. We were apart of a business group of around 20+ people. We had a set menu which limited our experience of this restaurant. However we did enjoy our meals... More

I dined here quite a while ago and thought it was absolutely delicious. I loved that the menu stated information about where they get their seafood products from and how they are prepared. Favourite dish at the time was the Pork Loin and I must say the truffle butter which came with the bread was to die for! The service... More

We were a group of three, including an overseas visitor . we were looking for a good experience...especially for our guest... and understood we would have that at Shed 5. Unfortunately we were disappointed by the menu, which was fairly limited, and the service. Although our waitress did provide us with a good alternative when one of our party did... More

This restaurant has reduced in size, (which may have something to do with the economy rather than anything else) with the sister restaurant "the Crab Shack" now occupying half the building and offering cheaper and more rustic fare. For a high quality silver service meal, Shed 5 has to be one of the places to consider, the food has been... More

Very professional and attentive friendly service with knowledgable staff. Local NZ fresh produce that was delicious and presented well. Good wine list without being too big and pretentious. Do your self a favour and go as it's also right on the waterfront. I'll be back next time I'm in Wellington.
