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 lived in NZ for over 2 decades, I’m always amazed that the service in restaurants from mid to upper range in price employs manly people from overseas to serve at table, I wonder why since the Kiwi host training has been going for a long time, is there a lack of NZ trained waiters or is it because people from overseas give an impression of silver service ?
Absolutely beautiful meal and superb service
Delicious, I recommend at 100%
We had a beautiful evening. Many thanks for the special touches.
Excellent service with a smile, classy, professional and thoroughly enjoyable. Slightly more expensive than similar fine dining restaurants around Wellington but don't let that put you off - still very much worth the money.
