It is many years since we had visited the Wind Jammer, so based on recent reviews & past reputation we embarked on a very pleasant dining experience. The service was excellent, attentive, yet not overbearing. The menu & wine list were extensive & reasonably priced for a restaurant of this calibre. To start we shared a plate of bruschetta served...

If you want beautiful Italian food, you must visit this place. Food was wonderful. Staff were friendly and the Chef spoke to us all after he had finished in the kitchen. We had a lovely experience.

Our party of 8 (4 couples) were all staying at Crown Beach Resort so we were always going to have a meal here and we were not disappointed! The food, service & decor were all excellent & reasonably priced. We had the added advantage of being able to charge our meal to our room as well. All meals were good... More

Discovered this gem of a restaurant on day 6 of 7, wish it was sooner. We started with the bruschetta and the caprese, delicious and fresh. We then followed on to main where I had the best seafood risotto that I have ever tasted, my husband had the spicy prawn penne pasta, which he gave a 10 out of 10.... More

Good service, nice sized meal. Above average for the island. We were part of a group who booked the whole restaurant, so the level of service and consistence of food was excellent.

5 star luxury at a 2 star price. THE BEST restaurant in Raro hands down. Beautiful handmade pasta by Carlo who comes out to greet his guests and tasty wines on offer including a selection of Italian ones. The chocolate fondant is to die for and I recommend the mushroom risotto with truffle oil- AMAZING!

We found it hard to find good food in Arorangi but we found this diamond in the rough. The food absolutely amazing. We loved the freshly made pasta and ate here the majority of our stay. The staff were so friendly and Carlos made the experience even more memorable. He often came out from the kitchen to great guests and... More

The best Italian food I've had since leaving Europe 12 yrs ago! Great setting and lovely staff. Seems a place for the over 50's though, not kids
