The Little Poly setting is geared towards the mature and honeymooners not families. The setting is stunning beside the infinite pool and the view to the lagoon is amazing! To start we all had a drink. All were good. Then we shared a Caesar salad with prawns. Delicious. Our main was the swordfish with garlic mash and roasted veg. And... More

We had a meal here recommended to us during our orientation at the villas where we were staying at and we weren't disappointed. The setting was amazing! Our table was near the infinity pool and gave you the visual impression that the pool was just extending into the lagoon. Very clever!!! On this particular night we were treated to a... More

The food was simple and delicious. We loved the fact that they would pick us up and take us home. There is a new chef and she makes great food. I loved the Salt and Pepper Squid and the wraps, and of the course, the cocktails, delicious

The food did not match the reviews we had seen. Service was slow and ithe meal was expensive for what we had. The pork belly was dry and rubbery skinned and my squid entree was chewy. We were with another couple and it had been our choice of venue and we were embarrassed we had chosen it. It was very... More

We are here last week because it was the first restaurant we found to be open. Amazing view of the aqua blue lagoon, seared by the pool, we hoped our lunch would match the location. The cappuccino was great and even had a little choc flower on top. The special of the day was fish burger and chips for $25... More

I just love to sit and enjoy being at The Little Polynesian for either lunch or dinner. The placement of the eating area around the lovely pool helps to make it a wonderful experience. If you are staying at another resort be sure to book to get a seat. The service is good and the food is presented very nicely.

We had a romantic dinner set up as part of our package while staying for our honeymoon at the Little Polynesian Cafe. Unfortunately it was pretty windy so the staff kindly moved our dinner set up to a more sheltered area so we were comfortable. The food was amazing and the staff always made us feel special. Their cafe is... More

We are frequent diners at Little Polynesian Café and always enjoy it immensely. The food is wonderful, the staff friendly and attentive and the location and the view onto the best beach in Rarotonga is absolutely out of this world. Our little touch of paradise. We will certainly be returning.
