Trying to go in another fully booked restaurant we came in the Shed 5. And this was really a great surprise and fantastic discovery. Behing the other Shed houses, you may miss it but that would be a mistake. I got serverd the best piece of Lamb ever. The NZ wine list is also great and the international waiters are... More

It comes on a plate in a flower pot on its side, together with chocoalte earth and a couple of baby carrots, with icig on the side.... More

We booked in two weeks before my Daughters 20th Birthday, so we could take her to a fine dining establishment as a treat for coming of age. We were seated promptly and the service was very efficient - the atmosphere was exactly as expected for a waterfront restaurant - so it was exactly as it said on the tin -... More

I had been to this location several years ago when on a conference and we decided to give it another try. We selected the tasting plate which was superb and followed up by my main of local fish. They promote that the chef selects the fish daily and I would agree with this. The huge windows provide views over the... More

This is a dining experience, not a fast food outlet. If you go here expect to stay a while as that what is intended. We showed up on a Friday evening with no booking and were pleasantly accommodated. The staff was very attentive. The food was fantastic, the whole flounder both artistic and delicious.

We were in Wellington over the last weekend of the official Christmas/New year holiday period so a number of restaurants were closed. We had been to Shed 5 earlier in the year and the food had been reasonable so when we realized it was open we went to reserve a table, for around 7.30pm for a nice leisurely dinner on... More

Best seafood chowder I have had in long time. Absolutely delicious. The tasting plate was very delicious and so was the chocolate fondant. There are many places to choose from along the wharf and I'm glad that we went into Shed 5.

Popped in for a quick Sunday evening dinner,but despite the restaurant being half empty,I had to wait at the bar for 30 minutes. Once seated,had a great waiter,but my first course took over 30 minutes to arrive. Ordered most expensive starter at $25 and basically got just 3 tiny amuse bouches ,none of which required any cooking,so no reason why... More
