This is our 3rd or 4th time at the Oyster Inn and we have had a 5/5 experience every time. We had the oysters, kingfish sashimi and some bubbles. Service is excellent. Beautiful atmosphere and those oysters still make me drool.

We went for dinner. Although we didn’t book beforehand, staff is very helping and gave us a table with great view! Friendly staff. Food is mediocre and fish is over cooked.

Happy hour on oysters until 3pm, so had 2 dozen. Wines a bit expensive but fantastic views and great service.

Love the setting, the views, the divine calming colours, the oysters, and yesterday, the delicious Bloody Mary's. What spoiled everything was the passive-aggressive service, that only a particular type of head waiter seems to enjoy dishing up. It starts well, the daily specials sound so...More

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.
