Came here based on recommendation and truly loved our lunch. Food is so fresh, and they get two batches of oysters daily. Enjoyed the Goldies Reserve white wine, and also the Man'O'War as pairing

Yes I agree with the other comments. Go to one of the many excellent wineries for lunch - I loved Casita Miro, great Spanish tapas and good wines - and go to the Oyster Inn in the evening.

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.
