“Great food and drinks”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

This is place is an expensive but nice place to go to eat. It's one building away from the waterfront but I don't remember it getting harbour views. The food is fresh and delicious and seafood is a speciality.

“Superb restaurant!”
Reviewed January 28, 2014 via mobile

Although we ate at higher rated restaurants during our long weekend visit to Wellington, this restaurant was the clear winner. We went on Sunday night as a party of four for an ' anniversary' dinner. We all had different starters and mains and without exception the food was delicious. The star of the evening, however, was the French Waitrose from Grenoble who captured and enhanced the mood of the anniversary dinner. Well done!
The restaurant is nicely situated by the waterfront with a nice ambiance and is our choice for a repeat visit.

“Great New Look Same great food”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I was initially disappointed when I heard the "old" Shed 5 was to be divided into 2 restaurants. However the new Shed 5 part incorporating the old Green Room as a pre-dinner bar works well as does the private room for functions. Last night I sampled a superb entree of belly pork and eel. What a fantastic combination. Accompanied by a riesling selected by the knowledgeable staff. Olly as always is superb as Front of House. Mains an old favourite Fish and Chips with 3 superb dipping sauces. Great coffee too. Unusual for a restaurant unfortunately. Highly recommended. The Crab Shack in the other half is also great just less formal and both work seamlessly together.

“Lovely restaurant on dock side”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We were recommended by Sebastien (bar tender at Novotel Hotel in Wellington) and we weren't disappointed. Wide variety on the menu. The shrimp and mac croquettes were very good - never had those before. I also really enjoyed the crab pasta dish.
