Beautifully-cooked meal in relaxing surroundings. Charming and knowledgeable waiters. A nice gesture of complimentary bubbly and a card for our special anniversary. What is not to like?!

Nice meal. Attentive service, if a little slow at times.

The service is exceptional and all the staff are charming and attentive. I heard one waiter explaining to each table all the details of the whole menu. He was never annoyed or impatient. The timing between courses was intelligent and thoughtful. The price for the oysters at $5.50 each is a little on the high side but they do come with options. The oysters with batter should probably cost more than the oysters natural. The portions are generous and my husband struggled to eat all the steak. The vegetable side dishes are divine and a vegetarian could have just the vegetables! The Black Forest mousse is outstanding. My husband kept sneaking it. The best desert I have ever had anywhere in the world. We came from Kawakawa Bay and would travel back just for that! The atmosphere is lovely. Friendly and not formal. Wine is by the glass and there is a lot of choice. My husband said his house beer was very nice. It was busy on a Monday night which says a lot. You can stay overnight in the Inn at the back and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. There are only three rooms at present but if they packaged up the meal and the room they would have a lot of people making the trip over to Waiheke although I am sure they do already.

Food was tasty, and reasonable portions. The restaurant is well presented. Service was efficient, friendly and not imposing which was very appreciated. We all thought was a bit overpriced for what it was, which might also be why on a very busy day on the island, was not overly full. Enjoyed the experience

A coupe of our dishes, particularly the octopus, we slightly of the mark. Also, we were wedged in on one of the balcony seats, which was a little uncomfortable. Our waitress was really nice.

I had a milestone birthday with friends at the beautiful Oyster Inn on Waiheke. The night was beyond my expectation. The service was excellent! Thanks Ricci for helping organise the evening, you did a great job!! The food was fabulous as was the wonderful Waiheke wine. Thank you so much for helping make my celebration a truly special one.

I had heard that Oyster Inn had improved recently (in the food department) but I have to say we were a bit disappointed with our meal last night. It wasn't bad, but lacked finesse - e.g the triple-cooked chips were soft, not crunchy on the outside as they should be, and the salad was just a few packet greens thrown together. I know this is a bistro-style restaurant, more casual than Onslow, but it doesn't even approach that restaurant for food quality. The wine list is good but limited.
