We popped in here before our booking for dinner across the road. We were greeted with a smile and the offer to sit anywhere we wanted . Being the middle of winter it was great to see blankets in each of the outside seats so...guests could take full advantage of the spectacular view of Oneroa Beach. The service was great… never in your face but definitely there where you needed it…. Two beers in we decided we needed a little sustenance. The polenta fries were a perfect snack and were crunchy on the outside yet deliciously creamy on the inside. In short… great service, great drinks and great polenta fries!More

TINY space so not a heck of a lot of room for our group of 11 but reasonably quiet night so managed to fit us in fairly well. Be prepared to be squashed if you have a big group though... Ordered a round of Mojitos...whatever...they were was good, but they weren't mojitos... The food was AMAZING, and grateful that the replacement dish arrived pretty quickly after the first attempt at delivering my meal resulted in it landing in my lap...and no apology. The bruschetta really was worth the extra wait though and the dishes I tried from other members of our group were all fantastic. The food was the highlight here by a mileMore

Service was great .Food excellent. In fact the salmon was the best I had had in any restaurant in New Zealand. Well worth a visit.

For casual drinks and tasty snacks/lunches with a million dollar view Aperitivo is unbeatable. Great staff, always with a warm welcome. The one downside is finding it as it is hidden away to the rear of 4 Square - don't give up you won't be...disappointed!More

We came across Apertivo while strolling through Oneroa. The menu and view looked amazing. We arrived with high hopes and were greeted with excellent service. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The wine was fantastic but that’s where the fun ended. The food was very...average. We ordered the Olives which sadly were the best things we ate. The Polenta was overcooked and the dip was tasteless. The smoked fish and croquettes were similar, and the dip was again tasteless. The caprese salad was bland and unexciting. Extremely disappointing. We won’t be going back again.More

Hello Terrence, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm so pleased you were extremely happy with the service you received, and you really enjoyed the wine. I also hope you liked the environment and the beautiful ocean view. I'm sorry you...More

Visited here several times over a couple of weeks. A tiny bar tucked away off the main street of Oneroa, with views over the bay. Good cocktails. Very good service - never waited more than a couple minutes for a drink. Only ate anything the...once, a tasty platter of nibbles. Only downside was that it didn’t capture the sun in the late afternoon, so could be a bit cool and dark. Last day they retracted the roof though (we didn’t know until then it could be!) which brightened it up considerably. Much better option than the handful of other small bars in Oneroa.More
