The Local


We invite you to make yourself at home at The Local, a Waiheke Island delight that is ready to infuse your day with peace of mind.

The Local is one of the island's sunniest, simplest venues, providing a relaxed atmosphere that makes private functions a dream. As a restaurant, we specialise in thoughtfully prepared and wholesome menus - alongside the best fish and chips you can find! Our beverage list covers all the choicest beers and wines found around Waiheke. The Local is just minutes from the ferry, making it a quick trip to us. We offer a No Venue Hire package with a negotiated minimum spend to make things all the easier for your event planning. Our place is the perfect spot to unwind after your wedding, celebration or more with its tranquil views and friendly service. We invite you to stop by for a 'recovery lunch' with us after a big bash for flavourful platters and drinks. Pair this up with a sumptuous menu, and you've got yourself an experience unmatched in leisure. When you've spent so much time planning and preparing your big day, our space is the go-to option to find sun-drenched repose. We love to host private days at The Local, from anniversaries to luncheons, operating as a venue that embraces its laidback ambience. Our venue offers incredible views of the ocean, with an expansive deck for wining and dining that soaks up the rays all day long. Moments from Oneroa Beach, you can host fun-filled activities on the golden dunes before returning to the restaurant for a bespoke meal. Join us for an easygoing event at The Local, where we promise to bring you the authentic flavour of Waiheke Island - as well as the best.
