New Seafood Restaurant on Waiheke

Waiheke is excited about the new seafood restaurant, The Oyster Inn opening in Oneroa this November.

"The Oyster Inn's menu is devoted to honest, authentic and uncomplicated cooking under the direction of Chef Cristian Hossack. As its names suggests, the Oyster Inn celebrates oysters with a dedicated raw bar, and other simple fish and shellfish dishes. We are also proud to support a wide range of artisanal New Zealand food producers, including lamb from our own Taranaki family farm, Te Rahui."

With views overlooking Oneroa Bay, an exciting menu and enthusiastic, friendly owners, we think the Oyster Inn will be a great addition to our world class range of Waiheke restaurants.
