About Shed 5
Shed 5 occupies one of the oldest wharf stores in Lambton Harbour. A water’s edge position and in-house fishmonger contribute to its standing as Wellington’s premier seafood restaurant.
Getting his hands on the best, freshest seafood available is top priority for Shed 5’s fishmonger, who visits the fish markets early each morning to select the day’s ingredients. Fish are always bought whole and filleted at the restaurant in a purpose-built room.
Huge windows facing the harbour belie the fact that this historic building on the wharf was once a woolshed. Crisp white tablecloths and sparkling tableware gleam under the dark-wood beams in the spacious dining room. On the broad-ranging, comfort food menu, seafood stands out.
When the sun is shining, Shed 5’s dining area expands to include an outdoor courtyard with views of Wellington Harbour.
Great food and service
Everything was good apart from the slow service. We arrived at noon as booked and it was 12.50pm before any sort of food arrived, there seemed to be enough staff but everything was just plain slow - from getting attended to on arrival, to getting drinks, food and even paying. It certainly wouldn't stop me going back but on our experience you need to allow way more time than you may think you need.
We are from Nelson and just in Wellington for the day. Booked on recommendation from Trip Advisor... Professional and courteous staff .. Charming happy waitress took the time to explain menu and checked several times during the meal.. Just the right touch not too much.. Food fresh,well prepared and presented and reasonably priced for waterfront location.. Interesting heritage building... Would definitely come again next time we are in the Capital.. Will Recommend... Kind Regards, Ross & Manthana
I should learn Italian language.
Waiting staff excellent. Young woman from England.
wonderful Italian waitress who made our little grandson feel very special.
Staff Christmas + leaving lunch - everything was great thanks. Food just right for a midday meal
Samuel was a brilliant waiter! He was very pleasant and approachable and even though he was a bit flustered as it was quite a busy day, he still served us with a smile. Thank you for your great service, Shed 5!
The group had a booking for 13:30, our order for drinks was not taken for 30 mins, our order for food was not taken for 40 mins, so from sitting down to being served it was one hour. I was thoroughly annoyed by the time my food arrived, although it was good food, the service was dreadful.
Sorry guys, while the waitresses were lovely the service was incredibly slow to the point where one of our party had to rush to finish his meal so he could catch a flight. He had to leave at 2:15 and we arrived their at 12 i.e. we didn't get our mains till 2pm! yet 2 hours should of been plenty of time considering it was not that busy. Also one of our orders was completely forgotten therefore that person had to wait for their main whilst everyone else had finished. Based on today i could definitely not recommend.
This restaurant never fails to deliver; excellent staff, superb food, and good wine selection. This is a high end restaurant and priced accordingly, but the food is exceptional, and the service 5 star.
Staff were so lovely our waitress was wonderful and the maitre de he came and rhanked us and wished mum happy birthday. She felt so happy and remarked to everyone how wonderful it was. So thank you for this we will be back.
Six of us had our annual Christmas Lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our total experience at Shed 5. The Staff were great and Fixed three course Set Christmas Lunch Menu was perfect.
Excellent, as always!
We had a wonderful evening at SHED 5 on 2nd December. We were hosting Canadian Air Force friends as they were holidaying in NZ and loved Wellington and especially our dinner at SHED 5. The bacon wrapped salmon was divine and the Fish and Chips were also a hit! Our server (an young Italian woman) was a delight and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening! Thank you so much!
Excellent food & service, will definitely be back when next in Wellington
We have been to the resturant a number of times and have been fortunate to have Paulo as our waiter. He remembers us, amazing, and the service and attendance he provides just adds to a great experience.
Loved every bit of it!
Food and service was fantastic with one exception. The server asked my friend if we wanted water but didn’t clarify that we would be given a litre bottle costing $10. We didn’t realise until we come to pay that we’d been charged this but paid it as we did drink it. We definitely would not have wanted it if we had of known - $10 for water is expensive and we would have declined.
Enjoyed the dinner in my holiday.
The food was absolutely divine! Our waitress was fantastic. Her service was exceptional, particularly because she was able to provide great recommendations which made our whole dining experience a joy. Highly recommend :-)
Very warm welcome on our return visit, we felt looked after, the staff were attentive but fun, the food was great, a superb night out in a superb location.
A fantastic evening for our anniversary. Thanks to the whole team for a great dinning experience
