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

This restaurant is part of the Crown Resort, a boutique style resort known for it's excellence and promoted as an adult only escape for couples. The Wind Jammer is located on the main road at the top of the access... More

We ate at Windjammers after all the good feedback from tripadvisor. We went with friends who stayed at the Edgewater and we stayed at the Crown. On arrive the first thing that impressed us was the waitress putting our napkins on our laps. The second was the size of the tables, they are huge! We had the breads for starters... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. We ended up going here three times during our stay in Rarotonga, it was so good! The food was fantastic (especially the pastas and desserts), and the service was excellent - the waitresses were attentive and very friendly.

We came to this restaurant after staying in the resort. The meals were very good and the dessert was a star from all the desserts we had on the island! After the meal the chef came out to check on the diners meals which was a very nice touch.

Food here is really good Italian and the service is really good too. Would definitely go back; they even did a Ceasar Salad for one of our group outside of opening hours a few days later.
