There are times in life when only fish and chips will do. Recently, in obedience to a craving engendered by shared reminiscences of happy fish and chips experiences, my wife and I ventured into Shed 5 on the Wellington water front. I'd heard this was a good restaurant. The way the fish and chips were listed on the menu suggested... More

We made reservations on the website as we were visiting Wellington for one night only to attend WOW. Had a lovely table for four with harbour view spoiled only by a draughty window, solved by clever placement of a jacket. A charming young Irish waiter helped make our evening most enjoyable. A diverse menu was offered and the food was... More

Had a bad start when I left a message on their answerphone to make a booking. No one rang back. Eventually phoned back and was told my call wasn't returned because I had an invalid number. Once we established I didn't, I was told I had misquoted by number! Once again, I hadn't and there was no apology offered. Arrived,... More

We had the pleasure of joining a couple of friends for a dinner at shed 5 and I have to say the young chef there blew us away - a truly superb meal with excellent service - it has been one of only a handful of dining experiences in NZ I felt obligated to make positive comment and leave a... More

Our table of four all enjoyed out meals, The service was exemplary and the food was very good. Sitting next to the window was a little draughty and towards the end of the evening a large rowdy group of diners were seated next to us which made conversation difficult but overall a pleasant evening and I would certainly make a...

Just had a wonderful dinner at this top restaurant........2 courses each and wine came to just £75 which considering the standard was great value. I had the Duck Confit & Porcini risotto my wife had 6 Oysters followed by some of the best Fish and Chips and a Caesar Salad.......absolutely no room for dessert although they looked great too. Really... More

I had lunch there and soaked in the glorious sea-views whilst tucking into delicious meals. Vast, spacious, and very tasty decor.

The food is devine but out of proportion with the size of the plate, I was wandering where the rest of my food was hiding. They may use the best quality ingredients but still overprice in my opinion and that was a set Christmas menu. I arrived with a party of 20 and sadly we went to Chicage bar to... More

We went to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary at Shed 5. The service was prompt and courteous and the food selection explained clearly. We both enjoyed the food we selected and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high class, beautiful setting right on the harbour watching the boats coming in.
