The staff were cheerful and attentive without being in your face. The food was wonderful and our varied tastes were well catered for, along with a lovely selection of wines and cocktails to choose from. The area is fun to be in but for a more formal experience, without too much formality, this is a great place to spend an... More

Beautiful views of the harbour, wonderful spacious restaurant (and good acoustics - at my age noise levels make a difference!). We had a wonderful seafood risotto. It's not cheap but only about $5 more for a main than other mid-range cafe's around town ($31 to $36 per main).

Buzzy atmosphere. Great location on the waterfront. Superb menu, especially the fish choices. Gorgeous tasty food, well presented. Good variety on the wine list. Happy friendly helpful staff. Not cheap - far form it. Try it for that special occasion and you won't be disappointed

Had dinner where the food was excellent so 5* on that account. However, we had booked for 8.15, arrived well on time and checked in with maitreD. Table not yet free so asked to sit in bar. Then forgotten about! Had to chase them up and eventually sat down at 9. Not served very quickly and staff were clearing away... More

Local friends who are regular clients suggested we went for dinner on one of the 3 nights we were visiting Wellington. The service was attentive and although the menu is perfect for fish/seafood lovers it also offers great options for meat eaters. You should enjoy the place especially it if you like a busy atmosphere.

It would be hard to beat this restaurant, The prices are good, food is very fresh and service was very nice. We split the spinach salad and the flounder and loved them both. The wine was also very nice.

Good food, professional, friendly service. Good selection of wine and beer. Wouldn't recommend the coffee however, we ordered flat whites - the barman made them - very bitter. I would happily recommend Shed 5 to others and go again myself.

This is an upscale, quite elegant, white tablecloth fish restaurant. When we were there they offered 3 choices of "fish of the day (salmon, tuna and grouper)" with a choice of 3 different preparations. All were excellent. Plus there were plenty of other other seafood choices for mains, appetizers, etc. Unlike other restaurants here that advertise themselves as fish restaurants... More
