Simply outstanding. Bluff oysters were divine . Lamb rump was perfectly cooked. I am not a big fan of restaurants because usually they are mediocre. But I am happy to blow a bit of money for an experience like this. Wine list is very expensive, which was a bit of a shame

Absolutely Perfect in every way. My husband and I had two nights in room 2 (middle of the 3 rooms) at the Oyster Inn in January 2024. We had read the reviews and decided this ticked all the boxes and it sure did. Location, location, location. A quick bus trip from the ferry terminal (3 minutes) up the hill to Oneroa. Then a short walk to the Inn. The Inn is right in the heart of the small town of Oneroa with lots of restaurants and shops right there. Across the road is the 4 square, small supermarket for any supplies. A quick easy check in from a very friendly staff member, who also serves your breakfast. Lovely spacious room - all white walls and ceilings etc make it feel very beachy and summery. Lots of natural light. A small deck which overlooks the back street of the town, and some views to another bay (unsure which one). We found the room to be reasonably quiet, being right in the town, and above shops and right next to the restaurant. You will hear (very faintly) the bins being emptied in the streets in the morning, but its not noisy by any means. The bed was huge and comfy. Lovely quality linen including big fluffy towels. Nice bathroom - not the greatest lighting in the bathroom if thats important to you. Theres free cold water in the little fridge, and they even have free snacks on arrival including fruit, chocolate and chippies. Breakfast is included in the stay and is excellent. Choose from about 5 or 6 options. We both had the eggs both mornings - I had poached eggs with the salmon option which was delicious and my husband had all of the options along with his eggs! He was more than satisfied. Great start to the day. And of course the view is perfect in the small breakfast dining area. With only 3 rooms, theres always a great table available and if youre lucky you will be right in the front table overlooking the street. Beach towels are provided in the room and the beach is a short 5 minutes walk down hill - so thats an uphill walk back lol. The beach is perfect here so no real need to go to any other beaches, but we did take the bus to some other areas. There are several very good restaurants right across the road and next door. And of course the Oyster Inn itself has one of the best restaurants on the island. As you can tell we absolutely loved our time on the island and especially at the Oyster Inn. Highly recommend and hope to return.

Absolutely amazing experience! We stayed 3 nights and dined at the restaurant one evening. The dinner was exceptional - food and drink selection were fantastic and our waitress Laura was excellent - great recommendations and service! Breakfast comes with the room and it was delicious - a choice of eggs, crumpets (best I’ve ever had!), chia pudding, and more. Stella was so friendly and took great care of us. The room was well-appointed with great amenities. Cannot recommend The Oyster Inn high enough!! :)

We came for a business dinner but had a deadline to catch a ferry. Kingfish ceviche was beautiful, karage very nice and our friends enjoyed the oysters. Lovely wine especially the man o war chardonnay. But there was a lag to get our mains to us and it forced us to miss our ferry which was disappointing. Lovely meal, good service and great setting. But timing could have been better, and it was busy but not full

Delightful room, in a small establishment steps from the beach with attentive staff and gourmet meals. French fusion feel to this little hotel - carefully collected details, gentle lighting, and fresh dishes to savor. I would go back in a heartbeat.

This review is referring to the restaurant. It was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! The service was amazing and the staff is so friendly. I wanted to go back to Waiheke Island the next day just to eat there again. Everything ingredient was super fresh. Craft cocktails are fabulous as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We dined at the restaurant 2 days ago. We had been several years ago and enjoyed it , but not this time. Perhaps they have new management. The dining area was noisy with drunk people, not the restaurants fault but a pity. The main problem was the food. I ordered pasta with mussels, and it was oily and without fresh flavour. The tomato base tasted tired and the colour looked like it came from a bottle of chilli oil. OK but could have been better .My wife ordered the market fish, which was billed as coming with cabbage and leek. She chose this as she loves her vegetables. There were none visible on the plate: the waitress insisted pretty firmly that there was a big pile under the pieces of fish: but in fact about a teaspoon of sorry material emerged. Again not really good enough. And "thrice cooked fries " which were really just costly wedges. So all together a pity and not likely to return to a local.

We were finally able to take this two day break which had been delayed by Covid lockdowns for almost two years. We checked and were met by Helen, the owner. We were shown to one of the three rooms at the Inn. Very comfortable and spacious, and the bed was just right. We dined in at the restaurant. Lucky we booked as it was pumping. Great food and service. I had the John Dory fish while my wife had the miso eggplant. Complemented by a green salad with a lovely dressing and heirloom tomatoes. The breakfast which was included in the tariff was excellent. I had the scrambled eggs, mushrooms and bacon, while my wife had the granola with fresh fruit, including beautifully ripened figs. Can’t speak highly enough about the quality of this Inn as a place to stay on Waiheke Island. Very close to the ferry and bus stops. Will certainly come to stay again.

Had dinner here Saturday March 5 TH 2022, such a friendly welcome and first class service all night! Menu offers up hard choices to make as all looked superb, Of course being the Oyster Inn we had to have the signature dish, it did not disappoint! Also indulged in the aged steak, with creamy mushroom sauce, absolutely cooked to perfection! Cocktails were simply first class, my wife totally rec. the 'Pink Lady'...loved the ice cold Peroni, views were amazing from the balcony and the atmosphere almost has you believing your overseas!
