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.
Throughly enjoyable meal.
I was dreaming about eating the seafood chowder all weekend after eating it a couple of weeks ago. It was as delicious as I remembered.
Very accomodating for a change of time. A lovely night.
fabulous wine waiter
Our waitress was absolutely outstanding! Very professional, a lovely experience.
A great pre WOW dinner! Yummy and made the night out really enjoyable.
Lovely place - this is the second time we’ve dined here while in Wellington for WOW - love it. And thanks for the beautiful birthday cake!
We had an amazing time. Our allergies were handled without a hint of bother, the kitchen really delivered outstanding and delicious meals. The staff were lovely too.
Delicious food and great service. Thanks.
Great food selections and portions were filling. Service was a bit slow to start with as we waited quite a while to give our drink order but Overall delicious meal and we really enjoyed it
Great dining experience, Thankyou can’t wait to return
Always exceeds expectations.
A little hiccup on arrival smoothly dealt with and sorted
We had dinner prior to the WOW show. Situated in a great location, the restaurant had a pleasant ambience. Staff were welcoming and the service was excellent. Our main was the lamb fettuccini. The lamb was cooked beautifully, very tender and moist. However, the rest of the meal had a strong 'herb' like taste, that we couldn't identify, and over-powered the rest of the dish. It wasn't unpleasant, but we had expected something a bit more than average. The desserts, however, were delicious and took away some of the lingering, strange taste from the main.
Disappointed that were forced to have the ‘theatre’ menu. This wasn’t explained at the tine of making our booking nor during the booking confirmation phone call. Limited options on the set menu for what we thought was one of Wellys premier dining spot. It felt like the options were just easy cook recipes developed around what was convinient for you to cook en mass and left us feeling like the opportunity to have a good meal somewhere else was missed. Prob won’t go back.
our party of 8 from Australia had dinner prior to WOW show and it was perfect... Fabulous dining setting on the harbour, sensational food and great wait staff - we all enjoyed our night here and it further confirmed what a terrific place Wellington is to visit!
Faboulous food and great service. Great value for money.
Thank you for a wonderful range of choices on the pre-WOW menu. The food was delicious, promptly served by a delightful young woman. It got our night off to a great start, and the show was amazing!!
Fresh, vibrant food and excellent service
Was a little hard to work out where the entrance to the restaurant was. Good food. Very busy, could have done with more staff
Made 7 trips to wow . Shed 5 has always been part of that nite It is such a relaxing atmosphere. And such consistency..
One wine appeared to have got lost after ordering, but eventually turned up.
Fabulous place to dine. Superb food and a lovely night out.
