We enjoyed a really awesome night here with my sister and her husband. The service was so good, seemed to anticipate our needs throughout the night and totally unobtrusive . Our food was very well presented and totally delicious. The whole evening lived up to...my expectations. It was a fabulous evening out all due to this great dining experience. Thanks to the team at Shed 5More

Exquisite menu and location was really handy and close to where we were staying. Erik our waiter was efficient, and paid attention to detail. I particularly appreciated his ability to be solution focussed and to find options for me as I have dairy free dietary...requirements. I will visit again when in Wellington again. Many thanks!!More

Great food and service. Salmon crudo, soufflé whitebait fritter and king prawn spaghetti as entree started the evening. Followed by 55 day aged fillet beef, lamb rack and snapper. All cooked perfectly with a tasty side of kumara with Iranian dates, dukkah and yoghurt. Desserts...we were determined to have this time -and were not disappointed with apricot pudding and coconut pineapple rum bavarois. Lovely touch of chocolate writing happy bday on a plate with a candle- was a nice touch. Excellent food excellent service - a favourite place to come.More
