Let's just say I'll never be back! Good size reasonably tasty pizzas but the tables are tiny! We couldn't fit our plates and pizza's - terrible planning. I asked for my steak to be medium and it came out rare, I hate sending food back but I just couldn't eat it. My potatoes were smothered in black pepper so way... More

Ordered a takeaway prawn pizza and fries to be delivered. It cost $47.50, and we are both still starving because of how terrible it was. Pizza was very average, soggy and no cheese.

You won't find any $5 dominos here and some people may find it a bit difficult to spend upwards of $25 per pizza but it is absolutely worth it. The pizza options are varied and tasty with the salmon & torinese being favourties. Also since they new owners have taken over, they have introduced curries and other dishes to the... More

Most people go to Oneroa when they visit Waiheke, but just up the road is surfdale where the prices are a lot less - it is where many locals eat. Stephanos makes great pizzas including good veggie ones and your dog is welcome outside in the garden. Yes it does not have the views of Oneroa and is a couple... More

It used to be quite good, but now the Pizza's are not so good anymore. soft soggy pizza that leaks out of the box! The price is far too high for the quality of the product.
