We dined with our daughter here Sunday afternoon for a special pre-xmas lunch. This is our 2nd meal here and our memories of the 1st time didn't let us down-superb! The presentation is amazing, the waiting staff top notch, food delicious with so much thought and care put into fabulous combinations. And the atmosphere! Silver service with a comfortable level...

This was my second visit. Food was up to my expectation. I especially like the lightly battered oysters. The tempura calamari salad was also good but there were just 5 small pieces - too few for the price i paid. My main grouse was with the service. The service staff lacked attentiveness and were also not very knowledgeable. I had... More

We arrived at Shed 5 without a reservation; however we were told a table would be ready in 10 minutes. So we had a drink and waited and waited. Eventually we were shown to our table. Service was friendly! We started with half a dozen oysters then for mains we chose fish. Tuna on kedgeree - a real picture on... More

With a colleague in Wellington on business we were passing this restaurant and decided to see if they had a table. They did so we first enjoyed a drink and the bar then settled into outer table that had a great view out to the wharves and the boats tied up. Our waitress for the night (sadly have forgotten her...

A top restaurant in Wellington on the Waterfront. Beautiful food and outlook. Just across on the wharf from the Hotel Intercontinental

When you see fine seafood eaten by grey haired men in suits, you may be near a political seat of power, in this case Parliament. It's fun to watch the male dominance displays when you don't recognize the players and can make up your own storyline. But I exaggerate. There were also a lot of young couples holding hands on...

was there for a private function - so a large group with set menu. Soup lukewarm, main meal stodgy and not particularly flavoursome- lamb hard to cut (overcooked). 1 dessert option was a cheese platter- yuk

I knew Shed 5 was a predominantly seafood restaurant and as I don't eat seafood thought I'd check the menu before buying a ticket. I was assured there would be other choices on the menu only to find no choice and first two courses were seafood. I obviously declined the Raw Seafood Salad first course and explained I don't eat...
