Walking along Wellington waterfront to come across Shed 5 and its Dine and Dash Lunch special. Two courses for $30 per person. What a deal. A restaurant inside a renovated whalf shed with big windows looking over the harbour and walkway, warm and inviting on a chilly day. We started with the skate wing that was nicely seasoned and finished... More

We are spoilt for choice with the many fantastic restaurants in Wellington, the other night we dined at Shed 5 and were very impressed with both the food and service. Despite being a Monday and what would normally be a quieter night in Wellington the restaurant was busy. Three of us chose the scallop entree which we all agreed was... More

Cannot fault the food...I would recommend the venison. The low ranking came from the staff on the floor who done a poor service which left us wanting to leave...which we did. The evening was shaping up to be a great one and due to over zealous staff our party left early extremely unhappy. Because of this...the food is not enough... More

On our last night of our holiday in Wellington we dined here. We were greeted and welcomed by a French waiter who was awesome. He recommended our food and wine choices and they were brilliant. We had 3 courses all beautifully presented and very delicious. My 7 year old loved his desert which was presented as a snowman with snow.... More

My first dining experience in Wellington was top notch at Shed 5. Our waiter was attentive and very friendly, the food and wine was fabulous. Great spot too.

Fish and chips, pleasant service, enjoyable ambience near a window - would go again. Useful menu for that quick lunch between business meetings, but I'd recommend it too for a central location for something more sociable. Big ups to the staff, who were all smiley.

Shed 5 has been an icon of Wellington's dining scene for many years, especially known for its fine dining and great seafood. I hadn't been for a decade or more (since my retirement - much of its custom seems to be on business accounts!), but my wife and I chose it this time for a wedding anniversary date. It lived...
