We went here after a couple days eating fine dining at vineyards. We were looking for pizza and a beer. We started with caprese and is was Ok but not great. The pizza was. Ext end it was very good. The service is good also.

Wonder if they changed chefs? Overall the food was very average and bland, especially compared to what they used to be. Disappointing.

After going through all the reviews posted about Fenice, my review would seem quite harsh. We stopped by here as they were accommodating to the size of our group at brunch time. The food was like any other breakfast menu and it had nothing spectacular. Prices were a bit higher than normal for what we ate. I guess the best... More

Visit here several times each week for the best coffee on Waiheke.Wonderful atmosphere and attentive staff..reading some of the less favourable reviews makes me wonder if some people just go out of their way to be obnoxious? Try Fenice you will be delighted

Been to Fenice many times but stopped going recently as the wait staff are not up to scratch. The food is good with a nice veggie mushroom thing. The decor is also cosy in winter with an open fire so works all year around - perhaps they will start serving properly when they are empty again in winter ? Most... More

I'm hard to impress when it comes to restaurants but the dinner for two was faultless. Awesome atmosphere, service and food. Well done Felice

Headed to Fenice for a late lunch on a sunny afternoon. I had their bruscetta special and the rocket, pear and walnut salad. Was perfect for a light lunch. Went at a time where they must have been between lunch service and dinner service, so it was a quiet restaurant, but still had a lovely atmosphere.

Each time we visit Waiheke we come to Fenice. Again, last night, it didnt disapoint. The service was friendly and efficient and the food arrived quickly despite the restaurant being full. We started with an Aperol Spritz to get into the Italian spirit then shared the Carpaccio - it was thinly cut to perfection. My husband had the Seafood risotto... More

After a fantastic day touring the island, we decided to enjoy a bite to eat before heading back to Auckland. Our server took our wine order as we debated over the menu. The wine was delivered by a different person, Anna (we were later disappointed to find out that she was the evening manager). My husband had ordered a Pinot... More
