Great steaks

Definately one of the best meals we have had in Rarotonga.the steaks were really well cooked, the only down side was a little confusion while ordering, but it doesn't take much to swop baked potato for chips.

For what looks like a simple place in the middle of nowhere, these guys know service well, if you have an empty beer it is filled, if your plate is empty it is cleared. Rib eye steak is exceptional and cooked perfectly. After having a poorly cooked fatty rib eye at tamrind house alberto's will not disappoint. This is the... More

We had the $35 steak special with desert included. Everything tasted great. The service was fantastic + unobtrusive. The table clothes were ironed and fresh. Toilets were spotless and spacious.

Three of us had pasta, which was a poor choice. It was not good. The fourth had only the salad bar, which he liked. Perhaps we just ordered unwisely, because the place was full, maybe another choice would have been better. We did not care for the ambiance either, other places were much more pleasant.
