A cosy little bar with good views over the bay. Nice range of wines on offer and although we didn't eat there the food looked interesting.

Appreciate your very positive comments. We are often described as "the hard to find" little gem in oneroa. Our position behind the 4 square in Oneroa affords us close-up sweeping views of the bay. Once people find us, they often stay for a while! We...More

"Hidden" down some steps off the main street, through the courtyard of another hostelry is this gem of an "osteria". By definition an "osteria" serves simple food and wine as does this, but simple food can be well presented, and a delight to the palette,...More

Appreciate your review. You point out the "hidden" nature of the business - we are seeking better visibility through increased signage, but hopefully that wont mean we get swamped - we want to retain some of the uniqueness of our special little spot!

Popped in for a bite to each at lunchtime. We didn't sample the wines as had endulged plenty the day before. Food was very tasty and everyone enjoyed what they had. Takeaway for leftover pizza was no problems. Friendly helpful staff, great views.

Great little bar with small deck overlooking sea. Good selection of wines albeit on the mid to high price range. Pizza and nibbles for food.

We went here for a couple of beers post eco zip lining; friendly staff offering Italian cuisine- go here for large antipasto platters, cool beers and a view of the beach!! Beats the local fish and chip restaurants!!

You will not want to leave. This is beyond a 5. The view is the best on the bay. Great wine & simple appetizers. Awesome service and we were fortunate to have a talented singer & guitar player on the balcony. Heavenly!

Intimate wine bar with a selection of interesting wine both domestic & international. Certainly the bar to visit Fri/Sat/Sun evenings if your music preference swings towards Jazz, Blues, 60's & 70's Pop, Reggae and if lucky the Narobi Trio.More

Relaxed and contemporary Wine Bar in Central Oneroa, Waiheke Island with the best views available over the Bay and out to sea. The Focus is on Old World and New World Wines, with a selection of Waiheke's finest. Osteria-style dining includes an array of seasonal rustic italian style tapas and sharing plates, flatbreads, fresh salads & decadent desserts. Live music often, but jazzy relaxed vibes is always at the order of the day. Buona Salute!
