Wow! Don't know if this was because we chose to dine here on an off-season Tuesday evening, when the kitchen could really take the time to put out the food, but what an exquisite meal. Try the spinach and pine nut Ravioli, with local Olio, succulent, subtle but tasty. Even the walnuts in the pear and rocket salad, were toasted to the right level of crunchiness. Great local wines on offer to compliment the meal, with the Passage Rock Dessert Viognier a real treat to finish the meal.
Not many diners in tonight - hardly a soul to be seen on the street outside, but this meal was bang on the money. It s to be hoped that they can maintain the standard once the crowds return to Waiheke. If so, DEFINITELY a place to bring your visitors.

Glorious food, very tasty and filling. Friendly and helpful staff, good value for money. The roaring fire really helped on a winters evening, the bus stop is close by with only a 5min bus trip back to the ferry terminal.

We had a great winters lunch here next to the fire. Warm and friendly service has earnt Fenice a solid following among island visitors and locals. Pizza's are very authentic, crispy base (superb) as are the more intricate dishes. Good wine list. All good.
