Food was devine, setting just stunning and staff attentive and friendly. Wine selection was very extensive. Good size portions so unfortunately I couldn't have desert as they all sounded delicious.

Started off in the bar, got to sample for free some bartender creations. Got inside to dining room and was immensely happy with the great cuisine and service. One of the better places I have eaten!!!!!!!!!!!

When the food finally arrived it was plentiful and tasty. Gnocchi and fig and spinach salad were spot on. The problem was waiting half an hour for an order including water and drinks to be taken. The team seemed stressed and not aware of the stages of orders. However this was redeemed by the charismatic gentleman who finally arrived bearing... More

We came here as a large group to celebrate a special occasion, and didn't regret the decision at all. Located by the water, the food was outstanding, matched by the fine dining experience including our fantastic waitress Frances. Seafood dominated, but lamb (award winner) and steak were also popular. Very enjoyable evening, definitely recommended.

Shed 5 has been around for a very long time now, but that has only added to its lustre. It is classy, expensive and very good indeed. it specialises in seafood, although its half chicken roasted with herbs and served with a nutty coleslaw has plenty of fans, and Of course there are steaks, but on the waterfront, in a...

We read the great reviews and headed to Shed 5 after the very cool Lux Light Festival. Great views! Excellent Service! Delicious food. We shared the yummy fresh fish bruschetta and the seafood risotto which was divine. Great wine list. Highly recommend this great place!

We were in Wellington many years ago and decided to celebrate our return. What an excellent meal we had. The seafood was superb, particularly the bluff oysters (natural & mornay). Delicious. Our waiter was Carlos who was both attentive & unobtrusive. A wonderful experience.

Last night in Wellington and last night for our NZ holiday so we wanted something special. Our tour guide today, and TripAdvisor, suggested this place right on the waterfront. It has a bistro section - Crab Shack - under the same roofline but separate - but the fine dining section is big, bustling and full. Plenty of people coming and... More
