This was, on a cold wet windy night, the best place for an excellent dining experience. The ambiance was subdued, and a little romantic with low lights so that you could see out of the windows into the wild night. The food turned out to be way beyond my expectations, service impeccable and a thoroughly good experience. We both started... More

From the moment we walked in the door we were warmly welcomed and treated like their best customers ever! There was a half hour wait for a table, so we were escorted to the cozy bar where we enjoyed a glass or two of excellent local Sauvignon Blanc. The wait, as promised was a half hour which passed quickly in... More

A last minute choice while wandering around a cold Wellington waterfront after a day at Te Papa. After a little bit of trouble finding the entrance (through a front bar area), we had the place pretty much to ourselves given the early hour. A very nice meal (including an excellent pie and perfectly cooked fish) with some excellent wines with... More

Ate at Shed5 with a group and it was delicious!! We ordered the seafood chowder, snapper fish, steak, a lovely spinach salad and everyone really enjoyed their meals. The snapper is an especial treat and it is certainly recommended!! The tiramisu was a bit 'different' than expected and came encased in a hard chocolate shell. The purist who is used... More

Large restaurant fused to or even part of its down scale neighbor. Fresh is good, but just because its fresh doesn't mean it is automatically fantastic, especially if the food is cooling as an over worked waitress is attending to another party of a dozen or more. Stick with the basics and ask them to reheat the plate if it... More

Where do I start! Another Wellington delight! Food, wine, service absolutely faultless! The quality if good and flavours where brilliant, the wine knowledge of the waiters second to none. One tinny little thing that stood out for a 3 of us guys, the chairs at the tables felt really small, strange but true. But honestly it was worth every sent.... More

My partner and I were on holiday and had budgeted for one really nice meal out. We selected Shed 5 partly because it was one of Simon Gault's restaurants and because it was always a place I wanted to try while I lived in Wellington but never got there. We really enjoyed the night. The service was fantastic, friendly but... More
