In the food-loving capital of New Zealand, it’s hard to stand out from the culinary crowd. But Shed 5 restaurant in Lambton Harbour makes excellence in every aspect of dining look effortless.

Located in the historic wharf store of Lambton Harbour, with the sea lapping under its floorboards, this waterfront eatery has an in-house fishmonger to mark Shed 5 as one of Wellington’s best seafood restaurants.

Think the freshest fish, handpicked by their fishmonger from the early morning markets every morning, served with braised octopus caponata, vine tomatoes and buffalo boccocini mozzarella, or grilled corn and chorizo salad. Enjoy seafood risotto, which changes with each tide and its catch, or enjoy New Zealand prime fillet steak, Hawkes Bay lamb rack or hand-cut pasta with clams, crab and prawns.

Using only the best New Zealand seafood, local produce and artisan ingredients, Shed 5 celebrates the Kiwi culture and cuisine with a menu that focuses on simplicity and flavour. Alongside their stunning variety of cocktails, fine wines and craft beers on tap, Shed 5 is the perfect spot to relax by the waterfront and enjoy the true taste of New Zealand.

My family and I - dined at Shed 5 this evening and had a fantastic experience. The service was outstanding and we were looked after by a lovely French woman named Cloe who was personable, fun and knew the menu to provide excellent recommendations. The ambience was nice and while Wellington put on freezing temperatures, the restaurant was warm and cosy. If you are a seafood fan you will LOVE the food. The seafood chowder and risotto were delicious and jam packed with seafood,full of flavour and great portion sizes. My aunt and uncle delighted in fresh oysters, seared tuna and lamb shank. Be warned, the lamb shank is gigantic and I recommend skipping a starter of you want to finish it. The desserts were nice, but the seafood is definitely the highlight. Absolutely recommend dining here!

Food was great. The festival dish for woap was really good. Would definitely recommend it. The crayfish truffle spaghetti was also another favourite. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful as well. It was a very enjoyable lunch and a bonus to be the first table booking

This place is amazing, the service is friendly and the food exceeded expectations. The waitress heard that it was my birthday and made a special effort to bring out a small dessert that had 'Happy birthday' written in chocolate which was greatly appreciated. I will absolutely keep going back

I brushed my service dog Darcy, and headed to Shed 5 with my partner. They could not have welcomed us better, taking our jackets and showing us to a lovely table by the window.
We wanted to try everything on the menu! It all looked really lush. We settled for bread, two entrees, two mains and two desserts. Our lovely Italian waitress helped me with my wine choice, and it was an excellent decision!

The ambiance was peaceful and yet the decor, particularly the lights, made it a vibrant space to have a lovely meal in. We did not feel rushed, and Darcy was able to lie and sleep, enjoying the wooden floor (his favourite kind to lie on!).

In particular we were struck by how well the chefs clearly respected the produce, every bite was cleverly thought out, and nothing was on the plate that didn't need to be. Between bites we sat quietly enjoying the zing on our tastebuds from the yuzu curd/sauce, the cleanness from the fresh white fish, and the delicate pasta that had that taughtness to it (the best way to eat it!).

All in all, we had a lovely time at Shed 5. They have an amazing reputation as providing a 'special meal', and we were incredibly impressed. The location also added an extra layer of surprise, being able to take a stroll afterwards to walk off our meal made the evening a 10/10 for us.

Ultimately, nothing disappointed. We are so glad we had this opportunity and it really did make our 'date night' a special one, where we left with warm fuzzies inside because good food is central to our lives. Thanks!!
P.S Photo of Darcy!

There's a good reason Shed 5 is our go to Friday night wind down. With the bar snacks and wine selection being exceptional we had never made it past the bar. Seeing the restaurant on first table we decided let's do this and made the leap to what was a step above exceptional dining experience. We used the opportunity to take our daughter and grandson. He loved it from start to finish and seems too have banked the experience into his list of awesome... The service was fantastic and attentive thanks. The food hit very taste bud like a well choreographed dance that both melted our senses and exploded yet another myth that things peak and can't get better... From the first oyster through to the last finger wipe of our desert plates it was a dining experience not to be missed. And definitely needs to be repeated. Thanks Shed 5 for making memories....

We (family of four) thoroughly enjoyed every element of Shed 5. All the staff were great and our waiter was attentive, fun and informative. The menu had great choices and the meals where amazing. We couldn't fault a single thing and will be back next time we visit Wellington. In the meantime I have been recommending to family and friends to dine at Shed 5 before choosing any other!

Incredible. These guys do class and they do class well. Do yourself a flavour and get the market fish - they do everything well but the seafood is outstanding. Dessert was a delight, very good value for money. One of Wellingtons leading establishments and for a very good reason

Thank you to Shed5 for a wonderful dining experience! I wanted to treat my Mum to something a little bit more special for Mothers Day and everything from the moment we entered was just perfect. Service was polite and professional and all of our meals were exceptional, such a treat to have such perfectly cooked tuna. I would def recommend and dine again when back in Wellington :)

I can't say enough how much I love Shed 5, headed by, Geoff Ngan. The service is not just good but extremely warm. The food is out of this world. We had the seafood chowder basking in fish, mussel, clam, prawns really bringing the full flavours out in the chowder. I love how they have done the fish, you really get all flavours (not only the fish) but the various sauces vegetables etc. Amazing. We also had the sticky date pudding - again out of this world. The ice cream was an interesting mix of ginger, orange peel and the pudding was moist and not overly sweet. Blew my mind away. I wish i had stomach for the entire menu. Cant wait to be back!

We had a wonderful night at Shed 5. We were totally spoiled. Great service and amazing food! Best negroni cocktail we’ve ever had. Recommend the tuna and salmon sashimi salad as a starter.

My word - what a restaurant! The snapper and tuna was cooked to PERFECTION! The service was also outstanding, all the wait staff were very knowledgable about each dish and wine matches. We were unfortunately too full for pudding but they also looked incredible.. tempted to go back later today for one! So impressed :) such a nice restaurant setting too.

We had a fabulous table by the window with a view of the harbour and activities. We were warmly welcomed by skilled and new staff. The menu has a great selection of land and sea dishes but we chose to eat all seafood. The salmon and tuna sashimi and terakihi ceviche were fresh and tasty and the main course of groper/ hapuka was delicious. We gave into temptation and tried desserts to round off a lovely sunny Autumn evening on the Wellington waterfront.

Fantastic dining! There were 4 of us, We arrived early and the restaurant wasn't open yet, we were offered comfy chairs in the bar area and a waiter saw us there and bought over water in beautiful glasses for us while we waited.
We were led in at 527pm for our 530pm booking, there were 4 of us.
We had steak (that beef cigar was something special indeed), lamb shank, Pork and wild venison, were no faults with any dish, 5 star perfection! The wait staff were extremely attentive but not over crowding, water glasses were discretely filled up as soon as we emptied them, they knew all the food on the menu and answered our questions, great attention to detail. Food came out in great time, no long waits like you get with other restaurants, and when it was ready, all wait staff helped to bring all the food to our table at once, not just one person trekking back and forward to the kitchen with plates, we really appreciated this, again, this is their great attention to detail.
The desserts were gorgeous, both in taste and to the eye, we had the chocolate dish and the apple cake, both had great little finishes on them, nice little surprise treats. Outstanding.

When it came time to pay we were offered a tip option, which was great because i felt guilty about only having a $45 bill for a huge amount of food! But as this is the first time I've ever been offered to leave a tip as part of an eftpos transaction, some guidelines would have been nice, ie %10 if your OK with it 6% if it was terrible, anything more than 15% is outstanding ect ect, that way the wait staff know what I'm trying to communicate with my tip, as I assume that is the purpose of them?
Overall a fantastic night and I hope I didn't insult them with my $10 tip because I thoroughly enjoyed it and we will be back!!

When we got to Shed 5 five minutes prior to our event booking time we were asked to take a seat at the bar and they would come to get us at 5.30, sharp.
Once 25 minutes had passed, I went up to ask whether our table was ready yet. They said they had forgotten about us and seated us immediately. Once seated they provided both gluten and dairy free menus which were great for me. The food was brilliant. The king fish tataki entree was outstanding, and the venison carpaccio was very interesting. Our wait staff were lovely, the maître d' was a bit poorly organised.

Lovely spot overlooking the inner harbour of Wellington (fab spot for a bit of people watching if you're lucky enough to get a table by the window). The service was faultless - very attentive waiter who offered a "taster" of the wine he recommended just to be sure I liked it :) The food was fantastic, probably the best calamari I've ever had!! Will definitely be back.

We went to Shed 5 with our 2 children as part of our Wellington mini break and were not disappointed! Having recently returned to NZ after 16 years in the UK my husband and I have had the opportunity to enjoy some fine dining in the UK and Europe over the years and the meal and service we received at Shed 5 was right up there with the best. Staff were attentive and friendly and the food was amazing. Our children particularly enjoyed their desserts and the First Table offer meant that it was great value.

We arrived at Shed 5 in the middle of a rain storm. Staff quickly stowed our wet coats and seated us, away from the draught we felt at the first table we were shown near the window (remember it was a dark and stormy night).
Our wait staff were very attentive and the delicious food and drink came at the right pace. Having not had a strenuous day we settled for starters and skipped entrees. Both choices were quite enough to get the digestive juices ready for the main course. We couldn't go past the fish choices. I had groper, beautifully cooked with interesting wintery accompaniments. I went for the beetroot salad as a side, a good choice to lighten the cassoulet that came with the fish. My partner went with the salmon and winter veg side which he enjoyed with his lighter meal. We shared the sticky apple pudding, which nicely rounded off the meal and left us feeling very satisfied.

We will be back....

Fantastic restaurant, can’t fault anything from the staff through to the food and the venue.
I had the market fish which was snapper served with prawns and ricotta tortellini, it was the best I have ever had, it came out piping hot, the texture was great (actually crunchy) as the skin was still on and it was garnished with nuts. My partner had the lamb shanks and he was suitably impressed. My daughter had confit duck salad and enjoyed every mouthful. We also had a few wines, cocktails and dessert. As I said I couldn’t fault a thing and would be happy to dine here again.
