Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Finished our drinks before food order was taken. Food took a long time however was quite busy. Good selection but eggs were overcooked. Staff weren’t overly friendly but not rude. Have had better.

Great food, atmosphere, friendly staff and reliable quality. My partner and I had an evening meal here recently and chose two lovely Italian favourites, ravioli and risotto. The flavours and quality were out of this world! Super impressed and highly recommend.

A great location, great food and perfectly chilled wine. Cafe Fenice has a high standard of presentation, and we revisited the restaurant during our time on the island. My wife thought that the Mushroom ravioli was divine and I thought the Mudbrick Sauvignon Blanc was...probably the best glass of wine I had ever had. One minor point was a small issue with the bill. Not having been cleared by the customers before, we were overcharged considerably. However, excellent customer service sorted that out immediately. A highlight during our stay.More

We had an absolutely fabulous experience last night for dinner at Cafe Fenice! They were extremely busy yet our service was not at all hurried. The wine selection was good and our meals were simply fantastic! We had the caprese salad and it was one...of the best we have ever had - the tomatoes were divine. For our entrees we had the seafood of the day (snapper) which was prepared to perfection and the veal meatballs and zucchini—also fantastic. Plus the chef prepared my dish specially so I could avoid a few things I cannot eat. It was a great dining experience.More

Hot, cheesy pizza and a great wine recommendation. This was a solid lunch stop. In and out quickly and walking distance to the beach after our meal!

Lovely, friendly and helpful wait staff and the food was absolutely devine! Full of flavour, perfectly cooked and a fabulous wine list to accompany it. Both myself and my partner had duck dishes - I had the Raghu and he, the risotto, and they were...both cooked to perfection! Our only regret is that we were too full to order the cannelloni we’d had our eye on since arriving!More

Great spot for coffee and breakfast. The staff working were so lovely. Cheerful, helpful and onto everything without hesitation. Definitely the best cafe in Oneroa. The breakfast was delicious and coffee was perfect. Will be back to try their for dinner and lunch sometime.

Lovely evening with friends and my dog. Staff are great and the food is consistently good, never been disappointed. I appreciate that well behaved dogs are very welcome. There is never a rush, if you want yo stay on and chat, no pressure.

I bet you will feel good once you enter ‘Fenice’ the small Italian restaurant on Oneora’s Main Street. No unwanted chicky Micky. Very friendly service and a great selection of real Italian food plus the location makes ‘Fenice’ one of my favourite restaurant on Waiheke...Island. Only negative point was the the mini portions of mozzarella with the Caprese Salad.More
