Visited here for the second time after a great meal here a year ago. This time was not quite as good as last time. The service was friendly and attentive on a very busy Saturday evening with the only problem being the menus which between the two of them had different prices for 4 of the items. One item in...

Not living in Wellington, and wanting a really nice dinner for a night out, I did a lot of research and came away that Shed 5 would fit the bill. It's hard to gauge the size and feel of a restaurant from either the website or other reviewer's pictures, but I wasn't prepared for the vastness of Shed 5's room.... More

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

fantastic evening to celebrate a 21st. Excellent food and friendly but professional service. Very reasonably priced for what we got. definitely recommended. The birthday plate was a lovely touch.
