Don't rate it - after eating such beautiful meals at the local wineries this restaurant was disappointing. The prices high $35 for local fish but it was dry and placed on what looked like frozen vegetables - corn, green beans and tomatoes. Very disappointing.

This is a really cute little restaurant sited in main shops. Waiheke is really busy during January & I think perhaps local businesses become a little weary of the crowds that pack to this beautiful island. The food here is very good. We did however feel the service a little rushed & arrogant. A shame because the surroundings so lovely.

We ate at Fenices on the recommendation of our tour guide and unfortunately we were extremely disappointed. The service was very slow with lots of waiting staff seeming to be milling around as opposed to serving guests. My pasta dish was the size of a starter portion compared to my husbands... my pasta was swimming in oil and was extremely... More

Food was nice, good value especially on Waiheke, service was very slow, one rather surly waitress damping enjoyment of our coffee and breakfast

This is a nice Italian styled restaurant. A cosy location in the heart of Oneroa. Food is always good here.

Great pizza here, I prefer to take out as it can be a bit cramped on the tables with a couple of pizza. Always busy, yummy desserts, wouldnt recommend the risotto

My husband and I, on the recommendation the host where we stayed, recommended Fenice as an option for New Years Eve. We could not have been happier with the choice. The food was beautiful (we both had the fish of the day - crispy skinned harpuka) and the service was attentive but not overbearing.

Good pizza, delicious beetroot and eggplant bruschetta, fish plate... Risotto frutti di mare and agnolotti cooked a bit too much but good taste. Excellent Tiramisù and wine choices.

There's no faulting this restaurants food, really authentic pizzas and pasta. The waiter who greeted us was really helpful, quickly finding us a table. But our waitress throughout the meal was so unfriendly. She treated us like we were a massive inconvenience. Shame, as the rest of our experience was great.
