“Great place for brunch and coffee”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We came here twice for brunch it was that good. The chef has poached eggs to perfection and their coffee would be hard to bet. The staff are super friendly ... only negative comment would be we stopped in for takeout coffee another day and the girl serving on that day was a bit away with the ferries...very vague and got our order wrong (that we had repeated 3 times). Outside of that all good - and the chef really needs to start selling his cutney in jars!

“didn't quite come up to scratch”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

The menu looked good. the food just wasn't great. My Veal lion was very over seasoned! almost sent it back! but didn't as I don't like to do that unless totally necessary. It's about eating together when it's a romantic meal out. My wife's pasta was disappointing in that the pasta was under and there was beard left on the mussel and prawn legs in the sauce. Also the lighting is so low it was almost impossible to see the menu.

“Great food and friendly service”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

As a local Waiheke family we visit Fenice frequently and have never been disappointed. The staff are welcoming and the food is well priced, well cooked and tasty. Great use of fresh seasonal ingredients.

“Excellent fresh food and service”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 via mobile

Whilst it can look a little bit dark and un inviting, it was quite the opposite. Open fire, friendly efficient staff and food to match Aucklands best. Whilst at first glance might seem a little pricy the food is well worth it. 9/10 for pizzas 8/10 desserts. Will be back!
