A pre- wedding dinner, then a post wedding brunch, both times the food and service did not disappoint. Centrally located in Oneroa, depending on the seasons it may pay to book. It will be popular

My experience is always outstanding, I don’t live full time on Waiheke and visit regularly, as such I dine out at all the restaurants on Waiheke. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Fenice really is constantly wonderful. The hospitality industry is short of good knowledgeable staff and...guests dinning don’t often care it a very tough situation. Well done to the whole team at Fenice I totally rate your restaurant.More

Perfect dinner experience last night. Wife and I were seeking a nice casual dinner and Fenice was recommended to us by friends who live on Waiheke. It was quaint and cozy to sit in. The wait staff were good and the pizza we had was...outstanding. Really the best I’ve had in ages. A nice wine list as well meant we had a lovely night. Well done Fenice. It can get busy here the place was fully booked most of the time we were there.More

Went for dinner. Was not acknowledged by staff at all. Staff just walked past us when we asked for service and did not even look at us for 30 mins despite raising our hands to get their attention. After about 30 mins one of the...waitress rudely said ‘just wait’. Food was not fresh and took a long time to come out despite not being busy. Would not come again. Did not feel welcomedMore

We were hungry and tired, and Fenice was the perfect ending to our day on the island. The wait staff were incredibly kind and engaging with our two littlies. Food came quickly and was delicious. Thank you for having us!!

We tried it for breakfast and kept coming back bringing friends for dinner. Staff were helpful and quality of dishes was great. It has a nice cozy feel and a good selection of both food and drinks.

Went for lunch with the family. The smoked salmon was flavoursome but it’s really bruschetta which the menu didn’t mention. Our son said the pizza sauce wasn’t that tasty. We’ve been there for dinner and the pastas can be quite nice. They weren’t that busy...and it was a bit of a wait so maybe dinner is a better option.More

This is a planned visit to one of Waihekes most consistent restaurants. Very hot Auckland day, great ferry ride across. Lunch started with pizza bread with glass of French Rose ( be careful lots of Mozzarella cheese), followed by Caprese Salad (great range of tomatoes...and olive oil must be local), then as mains we had the Pepperonata Salad and fresh mushroom Ravioli....both dishes tasty and wonderful. Finished off with Tiramisu, one of the best in NZ, (prepared on site) accompanied by short black coffee. Service was tentative and friendly. Would recommend, do book ahead.More
