My son couldn't be here for my birthday and booked the Inn, as well as the restaurant for a night. It was a fantastic idea, as after dinner we only had a two minute walk to our room.
Our room "one" was very beach style with white wooden planking, wood floors and a white tiled bathroom just like in magazines! They only have three rooms but told us they plan to build nine more on the side of the building.
Both the room and bathroom were very spacious and warm with a good selection from Sky television, quality towels, soap and an extremely comfortable bed.
It is right on the main road in the middle of the Oneroa village but was very quiet with the rooms at the back and the restaurant at the front.
Breakfast was included and there was a good choice and it was a generous size, made and served to you from the kitchen.

Delightful room, in a small establishment steps from the beach with attentive staff and gourmet meals. French fusion feel to this little hotel - carefully collected details, gentle lighting, and fresh dishes to savor. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Had dinner here Saturday March 5 TH 2022, such a friendly welcome and first class service all night! Menu offers up hard choices to make as all looked superb, Of course being the Oyster Inn we had to have the signature dish, it did not disappoint! Also indulged in the aged steak, with creamy mushroom sauce, absolutely cooked to perfection! Cocktails were simply first class, my wife totally rec. the 'Pink Lady'...loved the ice cold Peroni, views were amazing from the balcony and the atmosphere almost has you believing your overseas!

We dined at the restaurant 2 days ago. We had been several years ago and enjoyed it , but not this time. Perhaps they have new management. The dining area was noisy with drunk people, not the restaurants fault but a pity. The main problem was the food. I ordered pasta with mussels, and it was oily and without fresh flavour. The tomato base tasted tired and the colour looked like it came from a bottle of chilli oil. OK but could have been better .My wife ordered the market fish, which was billed as coming with cabbage and leek. She chose this as she loves her vegetables. There were none visible on the plate: the waitress insisted pretty firmly that there was a big pile under the pieces of fish: but in fact about a teaspoon of sorry material emerged. Again not really good enough. And "thrice cooked fries " which were really just costly wedges. So all together a pity and not likely to return to a local.

We were finally able to take this two day break which had been delayed by Covid lockdowns for almost two years.
We checked and were met by Helen, the owner. We were shown to one of the three rooms at the Inn.
Very comfortable and spacious, and the bed was just right.
We dined in at the restaurant. Lucky we booked as it was pumping. Great food and service. I had the John Dory fish while my wife had the miso eggplant. Complemented by a green salad with a lovely dressing and heirloom tomatoes.
The breakfast which was included in the tariff was excellent. I had the scrambled eggs, mushrooms and bacon, while my wife had the granola with fresh fruit, including beautifully ripened figs.
Can’t speak highly enough about the quality of this Inn as a place to stay on Waiheke Island.
Very close to the ferry and bus stops.
Will certainly come to stay again.

We enjoyed a dinner here which was all very nice however not what we could call fine dining as expected. Service was great, everything came out very quickly - maybe too quickly as an entrée and a main each and we were out in 1.5 hours. Food was lovely so no real complaints just maybe not exactly as we expected. All questions below refer to hotel rather than restaurant so hard to complete

I’ve never really been too fond of oysters, but I gave the dressed and battered oysters a go here at the Oyster Inn, and it was great! Flavourful and not “fishy” at all, which was a great way to start the meal.

Our highlight for the night was definitely the scampi linguine. The way they made the base to accompany the dish was just great, and the best thing was it didn’t overpower the taste of the scampi - we could still taste the scampi quite distinctly.

Thanks for a great meal!

We came for a business dinner but had a deadline to catch a ferry. Kingfish ceviche was beautiful, karage very nice and our friends enjoyed the oysters. Lovely wine especially the man o war chardonnay. But there was a lag to get our mains to us and it forced us to miss our ferry which was disappointing. Lovely meal, good service and great setting. But timing could have been better, and it was busy but not full

Simply outstanding. Bluff oysters were divine . Lamb rump was perfectly cooked. I am not a big fan of restaurants because usually they are mediocre. But I am happy to blow a bit of money for an experience like this. Wine list is very expensive, which was a bit of a shame

This review is referring to the restaurant. It was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! The service was amazing and the staff is so friendly. I wanted to go back to Waiheke Island the next day just to eat there again. Everything ingredient was super fresh. Craft cocktails are fabulous as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

They pick you up and return you to the ferry as you wish...upon demand.
