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.
After us having to cancel our booking due to a flight disruption - when we discovered we would be in Wellington by 9pm we rang to check to see if we could get in and yes the meal - service was exceptional once again - can't recommend this place highly enough!
Top marks for Shed 5. Superb dining with the fish dishes a highlight and the desserts a delight. We will definitely come back for more! Lovely service from Cami 8-)
We come for my mother's 70th birthday, which I had mentioned when I booked, and the staff who served us were aware of that and specially mentioned it, followed by happy birthday on a plate with a candle. My mum loved that, so thank you very much for making her feel special.
Lovely atmosphere and attentive service. The food was good but not exceptional for the price you pay
Absolutely amazing service from front of house and kitchen. My allergies are severe and often keep me from eating out of the house, so to come to Shed 5 and eat delicious food that was safe and felt like a coherent dish was such a treat for me. (I usually get piles of random food on a plate/they forget something and I can’t eat it.) Our waitress was an absolute dream. Shed 5 will 100% be on my “safe, great places to eat” list to visit again and recommend.
WOAP today , extremely good. Hope to visit again soon.
Great service, a lovely touch bringing a Birthday treat to the table for my friend
Very enjoyable evening thankyou
Excellent service and great food
Beautiful meal. There for Wellington on a plate. Chefs Cook perfect fish. Did not expecting that. Worth the money.
Amazing food. My fish was cooked to absolute perfection. Would highly recommend.
It's a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Great service and a big thank you to those who attended our table. They made my father’s 93rd Birthday very special.
Always fantastic food and service here. Love it. Highly recommend.
Shed 5 is one of my favorite restaurants. Just love the atmosphere and food.
Great place for a Pre dinner drink and then relaxed dinner. Attentive staff and nice period building. Will come again.
Great service and fantastic food thanks for providing me and my partner with a grand dining experience
Was disappointed that they ran out of grapefruit juice for my cocktail considering it was early on a Saturday evening otherwise I’d have given a five star rating
We booked through First Table and received a 50% discount on food. Having said that, we'd happily pay full price for that quality of experience. Delicious food, with well thought out flavor profiles and unexpected touches which vastly improved old favorites. We were also impressed by the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff. Absolutely deserving of a 5 star rating.
A fabulous lunch - welcoming and attentive service, beautiful sunny restaurant and stunning food. What a treat.
Ladies lunch was Fantastic!! Great ambiance, attentive, informative, professional staff combined with delicious flavour combinations in our 3 course lunch. Perfection! Thanks for a memorable time
