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.

The food and service was amazing! We started with the bread and the butter was delicious, fiollowed by scallops and my friend had the calamari! Both were excellent! We then had the eye fillet, and as expected it was melt in your mouth quality! No room for desert but we finished with a coffee and a truffle! Perfect way to end a meal! We will be back! Thank you

Great location Wellington waterfront. Good view of the inner harbour from the restaurant. The food was well presented and of a good standard. The fish choice was fresh and a good choice with oysters, scallops and market fish. All the food arrived on time and was hot and portion size very good. The wine list had most types of wine available and a large choice. A good selection of pre drink cocktails which included the usual favourites. Not too busy early but can get full later. Good overall value. Waiter Jack T top man.

This was our first time using first table and certainly won’t be our last. Shed 5 was an amazing experience, the food was delicious, the service so friendly. Highly recommend this place for a lunchtime on a Sunday.

Fantastic dinner, we took my parents there for their anniversary. The food was all lovely, well presented and decent sized portions. It was odd to have a steak served on a bed of beef bourguignon! Three of us ordered the steak, and all three were over done from what we asked, but still very yummy. Our waitress, Eleanor, was delightful and made the experience very pleasant, would definitely recommend her. The reason I've given a 4 star service rating is because of the guy on the door - he wasn't particularly welcoming and he was snappy with our waitress when it came to paying, which was unnecessary. He ended up being friendly by the time we left so that was good. Would definitely return! :)

Service couldn’t have been beaten! As I have food allergy’s etc staff went well out of their way to make sure I was catered for. Food was delicious and portions were great size- no room for desert though unfortunately!! We will 100% be back on our next visit to Wellington.

Celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary was made extra special by the enthusiasm, professionalism, and warm personality of our waitress from Bologna. She patiently answered our queries, conveyed our personal preferences to the chef and simply made our dining experience great fun!
Thank you so much,

Lovely ambience, wonderful food. Service was great even with someone being trained on the job they didn't miss any detail. I had the tuna which was a first and will definitely add that dish to the favourites list. Bonus was that it was such a beautiful day and you can't beat good food and great company by the water in Wellington.

We had a wonderful evening at Shed 5. The food was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. The menu would lure us back again and we have already recommended to others. The staff were very friendly and attentive throughout the evening. They made our to our soon to be 5 granddaughter, (who had travelled with us from the South for a special birthday treat in Wellington), feel very special and welcomed. We can definitely recommend Shed 5 and we would have no hesitation in returning next time we are in Welly.

The lunch was superb, food was excellent and the service provided by our server was perfect, his suggestions and knowledge of the products was a real contributor to our enjoyment.

We are a group of friends who are real foodies, so for all four of us to leave the restaurant feeling really satisfied and well cared for is a significant tick for the restaurant and staff.

Booked lunch here for Fathers Day. Lovely ambiance inside even though it was pouring outside. Fantastic attentive service. We had the angua steak, fish and chips, seafood chowder and a few sides. Everything was tasty (but Dad didn't like the coleslaw served with the firsh chips). It was a nice occasion and definitely would recommend this restaurant for the attention to detail in food and service.
