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.
Having been in many high end restaurants here in New Zealand and globally we thought our overall experience was very average at shed 5 . Definitely not value for money and would hesitate to recommend it going forward. To our horror we noted one of the service staff cleaning something of a knife with his fingernail while setting up a table adjacent to us while we were dining
Great service and good food!

On a sunny day in Wellington a window table at Shed 5 was the perfect place for lunch. The food was outstanding and the service first class. Highly recommend for locals and a place to take overseas visitors

Terrific early dinner with Shed 5. Lovely staff and delicious food to match the setting, overall very happy with the experience.
The food service and atmosphere was perfect before going to WOW.
Shed 5 has the most beautiful design and setting of any Wellington restaurant. Loved our window table and fabulous view out over the sea, with people and children walking along the wharf. Asked for music to be turned down. Should be really low volume background music. I had scallops, beautifully big and tasty, and the Seafood Assiette with a range of Gravlax salmon, and other little delicacies. Delicious!
We had the most excellent service from Marko the entire night. His knowledge about the produce was fantastic and all his recommendations were spot on! A beautiful meal.
