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.

Best dinning experience in wellington yet! Each course was excellent and delightful to eat especially the aged steak. My partner and I almost licked the plate clean.

Thanks for a wonderful evening

Amazing food. Far exceeded our expectations. We had oysters, seafood chowder,(we shared the chowder and they even put it into separate bowls for us - way above and beyond) crayfish bruschetta, beef fillet bruschetta, tuna tataki and fish and chips. Everything was cooked to perfection. Excellent service and it was very busy for lunch the day we dined. Could not recommend them more highly. Delicious. Thank you. We will definitely be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Shed 5 Restaurant & Bar.

The service was excellent, from being seated in the bar area with an excellent Church Road Chardonnay, whilst waiting for our table, to be shown into the main dining area.

Our French Waitress was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and very efficient even though it was only her second day.

We would certainly recommend this restaurant overlooking the sea, down in the Dock area.

Our waitress was very engaged, quick and professional, service was quick and the food was gorgeous, I started with seafood chowder as an entree it was the size of a main - and the best chowder ever!

My main of groper with creamy mash and a creamy sauce was devine, hubby really loved his seafood meals as well, highly highly recommend, no wonder this place is ranking at No1 on my first table

Our next venture will be to a pub restaurant, no offence but our expectations have been set so high after dining at Shed 5

The food was perfect in every aspect - fresh and impeccably presented. We enjoyed the oysters, paua fritters, fish of the day, salmon, and fish and chips. I would particularly recommend the Japanese style tempura battered oysters which are unique to Shed 5. Perhaps the paua fritters were on the salty side and could have had more paua, but we enjoyed it nonetheless. Service was attentive and personable as it wasn't a particularly busy lunchtime. Would highly recommend!

The entrees and exceptional service from our lovely waitress were definitely the stand-out features of our evening at Shed 5. The bluff oysters and scallops were beautiful and we could not fault them. We ordered the vegetarian pasta and lamb rack for our mains and although they were okay, there is definitely room for improvement on both these dishes- I feel their focus on seafood and fresh fish may be the reason for these two non-seafood dishes slightly lacking. Drinks wise we had the espresso martini- which was lovely and the Palliser rose which we also really enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this place to friends however I would stick with seafood for the mains!

A splendid evening spent with my boyfriend on our last evening before his departure. The atmosphere of the restaurant as well as the incredibly friendly staff made our experience (and last meal together) one to definitely remember. The food was to die for and incredibly well catered for our gluten free tummies. Will certainly come back again!

We have been in Wellington for a week.
This has been, by far, the best meal we have had.
The service was on point. From the barmaid who greeted us, to our amazing waitress Elana, to the manager who was doing the rounds, checking that everything was perfect.
The atmosphere was relaxed, soft jazz playing, with a beautiful setting and fantastic views of the water and harbor.
For entrees we had the Crayfish borchetta and tempura oysters. Just Wow!
For mains we had the market fish of the day which was snapper. The first time we had eaten this fish. Holy hell it was fantastic. It came crispy skinned and perfectly cooked. With tomato, avocado mousse, and capers. We got buttery, cheesy potatoes and a beetroot salad sides to go with the main, which were both very delicious.
The wine we had was perfect with our seafood. It was the Italian Prosecco and is a new favorite!
All in all, everything was absolutely perfect !
We will definitely be dining here again the next time we come back to Wellington.
A++++
5 STARS!

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!
