WE had such a lovely evening at Oyster Inn! The views from the verandah were beautiful. The service was fantastic. The cocktails were great! And the food was incredible! Highly recommend Oyster Inn to anyone visiting Waiheke :)

Sitting on the verandah facing the view is fantastic. The food is fabulous especially the Black Forrest mouse. My husband kept sneaking it. You could just order the side vegetables if you were a vegetarian, as they were very different and the truffle flavour on...the frites was divine. The only problem was deciding what to have and the waiter explained every detail to everyone who asked and needs a medal for his patience and enthusiasm. It was busy on a Monday night which says lots and the timing between courses was perfect.More

We had a fabulous evening at the Oyster Inn. Excellent food, great cocktails and a very affable waiter from Italy who made the evening memorable. Loved the oysters and wasabi mayonnaise. Everyone loved their meals and desserts. We went home smiling and looking forward to...visiting again soon. Recommend the tiramisu, it was like eating a cloud! Thanks for the wonderful experience.More

Not sure if there is a specific kids menu but there are plenty os starters you can choose from rather than a main for smaller appetites. Enjoy!

Either. ask for outside table if you go for lunch as you can sit on balcony with view. Dinner time is maybe a little noisier but anytime is fun time

It's in Oneroa - the main town area closest to the ferry (Matiatia - not the car ferry at Kennedy Point). You can walk into town in 15-20min or there are taxis and buses at the ferry and in town you can grab.
