Good food option in the business district in Wellington. We tried various seafood options all of which were very tasty. Good service from the staff although they seem a bit understaffed. The restaurant is ranked fairly high in TA which seems justified...

Walked by this place when we first got to Wellington and it looked fabulous, but we didn't take note of where it was so lost it. We made a trip down to the waterfront on our last night and stumbled upon Shed 5 again and had a wonderful meal there. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the bar... More

The salads were excellent; we sampled the caesar, wedge, and spinach salads, and all were flavorful and well-prepared. All the main dishes were creatively delicious, but the seafood risotto was outstanding. I had the scallop appetizer as a main dish, but it can be ordered as a larger dish if desired. The wine list is extensive, and we really!! appreciated... More

Menu was interesting and for the most part delivered. Lamb two ways was well cooked, good garnishes. Sides were not as good as the main.

With a choice of 3 market fishes of the day, we chose the John Dory. It was no problem for me not to have the bacon included, as per the menu. The food was delicious and well presented. Service was good - attentive but not obtrusive. Nice atmosphere and eating early evening, not too noisy.

We enjoyed a seafood lunch at Shed 5. There were a number of starters that we would have happily tried however we decided to have only mains. The fish was nicely cooked with some interesting accompaniments. It was nice to have a water view although the views are limited to the wharf area.

The staff were cheerful and attentive without being in your face. The food was wonderful and our varied tastes were well catered for, along with a lovely selection of wines and cocktails to choose from. The area is fun to be in but for a more formal experience, without too much formality, this is a great place to spend an... More

Beautiful views of the harbour, wonderful spacious restaurant (and good acoustics - at my age noise levels make a difference!). We had a wonderful seafood risotto. It's not cheap but only about $5 more for a main than other mid-range cafe's around town ($31 to $36 per main).
