Good food,decent wine list but small and can get loud not a place for quiet conversations. But a good meal nonetheless

Among all the exceptional places to eat on Waiheke, this one must rate amongst the ordinary. Perhaps, by mid-afternoon, the staff were just too tired to be bothered. But then why would one bother to go there?

The bus dropped us in the centre of Oneroa and we spotted a little Italian restaurant across the road. Outside, Fenice looked rather drab, but inside there was a blazing fire. That was just what we needed and to get out of the cold wind and into the warmth of a cosy little restaurant. Service was good, pizzas were excellent,... More

Fenice is a great little restaurant on the main strip on Waiheke. I want sure that this was going to be a good choice. No views an looks quite dark. When you walk inside the front area is filled with light and protected from the wind (extremely windy today). The menu had a lot more options than other places near... More

Had a long walk on the island and dropped in for a light lunch. Just beef and chicken sandwiches but made with lovely fresh ingredients washed down with a cold beer. Really friendly staff and great location.

We only came here because the manager at the place next door (Oyster Inn) had been so rude to us that we left before our drinks had even arrived but boy are we glad that we did. It's a lovely, cosy, intimate little restaurant with an almost Italian feel to the interior. The menu leans towards the Italian too, we... More

We were on Waiheke for a wine tour, but got on the island early. We figured we'd have lunch first, but most places didn't open until noon. We found this place and decided to give it a try. It turned out to be well worth it. They have a small patio outside, but we opted for inside. It's a pleasant... More

We stopped by at Fenice for a light dinner on the Sunday of Labour Weekend. Scored one of the two tables outside and although it was a little overcast it was a pleasant spot. We shared the Capricciosa Pizza w tomato base, mozzarella, salami, mushrooms, olives, anchovies and a Rocket, pear, walnut & parmesan salad. More than enough for the... More

Small and cosy restaurant with an exotic feel to it that makes you think you are in Europe . Romantic place for a first day if you are thinking of an intimate ending to the night. Staff are obliging and friendly and the good very good
