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.
Food was to its normal very high standard. Service in the bar was a bit slow, but the dining service (food and drink) was exemplary. Still our favourite place for a special occasion :-)
Staff as usual friendly and helpful. Atmosphere so much better with more diners with the ladies lunch promotion. Lamb shank wonderful and with the Nourish card a reasonable lunch.
Amazing, delicious, excellent service!!
Beautiful seafood chowder highly recommend. Beautiful main fish - amazing chief!
very delicious. Service is very good.
We used the First Table option to eat here so it was value for money for us. The service from Georgia was attentive whilst being relaxed which we appreciated - didn't rush us or hover, just knew when we were ready. The food was delicious and were hearty portions. Lovely setting on a rainy afternoon.
Visited today for the Ladies Lunch. It was fantastic in very way - the food, the service, the value, the atmosphere. 5 stars all round.
It was amazing. Such great service, food was to die for!! What fantastic value and a great way to get people to come along with the ladies lunch. I had a client meeting over lunch and it really wowed us all. Highly recommend it to everyone. I haven't been for dinner for years so will be back again for dinner. Wow, wow, wow is all I can say.
Fantastic, food, service and dining experience. Caters for all. I have been twice in the past month and looking forward to taking the whole family next time!
Great friendly service with really nice food
Sometimes restaurants focus too much on quality and presentation and you end up with little food But not here, it was good to go to a restaurant where you don't leave feeling hungry
Shed 5 is a true credit to Wellington's fine dining. unbelievable crayfish and truffle entree and that 55 day aged fillet was just stunning.
We were down from Auckland and could not have chosen a better venue for my daughters birthday lunch. A huge thank you to you all!
I went to the Ladies Lunch today with 2 girlfriends. We all thought the food was outstanding and amazing value. Our French waiter and new Matre di were both really professional and friendly. I am going to organize another group for next week it was so good and will tell everyone. A very good value thing to take my clients to. I tried to go on Trip Advisor but it was too difficult. Many thanks for a wonderful lunch. Bobbie Meyer
We've been a regular customer at Shed 5 spanning over 10-yrs, however on our recent visit on 7th July over the past 2yrs, the level of service has been disappointing. There were 3 tables remaining, and we had to get up and ask for our wine to be served. Not great, and sadly we're unlikely to return.
We had the best meal here! Our group of seven loved every course and our waitress was chatty, helpful and delightful. Thoroughly would recommend Shed 5 if you’re looking for an excellent dining experience!
Thankyou so much for making Mum’s 90th birthday special. We were a large party with the a la carte menu and everything was beautiful, we were all served our meals together - thankyou Chef - and the French waitress looking after us was wonderful. The birthday cake was what I had wanted, it looked beautiful (my only criticism is that it was a bit dry). Thankyou all so much, we will see you again.
Had a wonderful lunch with family and extended family to celebrate our parents 60th Wedding anniversary. Thanks so much Shed 5. Glenn Perkinson
We had a wonderful time this afternoon at your ladies lunch. We will absolutely be back again. Delicious! Thank you.
Awesome service. Really enjoyed the meals . Will be back again .🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍
Food was lovely and staff very helpful and well presented.
Just love Shed 5. Food is delicious and very good service
We thoroughly enjoyed the Ladies Lunch, especially the dessert which was divine, a delicious combination of chocolate and coffee. We’ll be back next month.
An really excellent meal. Astrid was entirely clear and helpful for the booking. The Maître d was charming and had organised options for us. The waitress was excellent and both present when needed but unassuming. The meal itself was amongst the best I’ve had in Eellington for some time. I first went to Shed 5 perhaps in1992 and I was pleased and surprised to see how well it’s standards have been mgintained. Chris Adams
