We dined here on our last night in Raro. We both had the seafood rissoto which was delicious! The rice was perfectly al dente, the sauce was delicious and the seafood was perfectly cooked. Service was very friendly! This was the best meal we had while in Raro. Too bad we only found it on our last night.

My wife and I would stop by here during their happy hour specials where they had a different drink two for one each day. It was always delicious and a pretty good deal. Service was always friendly and speedy, they even picked fresh flowers to put in our drinks and that made the experience so much cooler. The tables are... More

Friendly staff, good service and delicious food. You have to try their Ika Mata! Restaurant overlooks resort swimming pool and is sheltered from beach winds.

Went for lunch. Nice atmosphere overlooking pool. Only a handful of guests as it was quite season. Husbands beef burger was raw inside so was sent back. Was cooked properly the second time but a little off putting when blood drips out of your patty. Didn't go back.

Me and my toddler had several nice meals here, all were absolutely delicious. The dumplings were a hit with my wee girl, they were demolished in record time with nothing left on the plate. A lovely relaxing setting.

Had a chicken wrap, it was delicious and great value for money. The glass of water on the side was very nice too. It's located a bit far from the central Muri Beach and tucked away from the main road resulting in it not being crowded as some other (overpriced) places down the road. The restaurant itself looked very nice,... More

We were staying at this resort so tried the restaurant a few times. Always a good idea to kick off with a cocktail or two at Happy Hour prices! Happy Hour is usually 4-5 but sometimes was 4-6. Note that the restaurant is poolside and not right on the beach but still has a lovely atmousphere. There was live music... More

We had our wedding reception at Aqua Cafe and it absolutely amazing. The food was 5 star and the venue was decorated perfectly. We also dined here on several occasions through out our stay and were never dissapointed. I would highly recommend Aqua cafe.

My two sons and I had lunch here cos it was handy to resort. I phoned to book and they were a little rude. We ordered club sandwiches and asked for a few things to be left out e.g. lettuce, aioli etc. The waitress was careful in writing this down then handed the wrong ones to each person. We didn't...
