I arrived at the Crown Beach dripping wet, having been caught in a downpour. Push bikes are a fantastic way to travel in Rarotonga but perhaps not the best conveyance on a rainy evening despite the jacket I was wearing! The lovely folk at the resort, having ascertained I was there for dinner and not just taking shelter, provided me... More

This restaurant is at the Crown resort on the western side of the island and wasn't far from the resort we were staying in. We ate there twice as the food was so good! The first time I had the pasta (very authentic) and the second time I had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfectly. We could see... More

Service started off well but once our Mains had been cleared no one bothered to approach us with a dessert menu or any after dinner drinks. We waited for over half an hour then paid the bill and left.

Brilliant. Best Italian I have eaten in a long time and I am from Melbourne. Service was top notch, waiting staff remembered us and always made us feel welcome. The restaurant has a romantic feel, white table cloths, italian music and dim lighting makes this place a real treat. The staff ask how you would like your pasta done which... More

There was nothing really wrong here, but there are some great reviews for the place and it really didn't live up to the expectations

My wife & I dined here a couple of times when staying at Crown Beach and think that Windjammer is the jewel in an otherwise jaded crown! Food here is very good, as is the service, and the chef makes appoint of coming out to talk to diners - always the sign of a good restaurant. Thoroughly recommend a visit... More
