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

Small but very hospitable. Best view in town but missed the jazz - which would have been great as we had the best seats on the balcony. Good range of drinks and some interesting non-Waiheke wines for comparison with the rest of the world. Highly...More

Hi Thanks for taking the time to write. We're no more expensive than the Oyster Inn or Fenice (across the road), but arguably, we have better views...We try and have live music whenever we can.

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!
