The best steak in town....absolutely done to perfection. Don,t go past this one it is an absolute must when visiting Raro. There is also a seafood platter for one that is worth a look and beautifully presented, perfect for one person. A gracious and great host to have. The restaurant is clean tidy bright and cheerful, it may not have... More

Reccomended by an island bus driver we thought we would try it out. He was not wrong! Service and food way beyond our expectations. We had the set steak meal (3 course) which was very reasonably priced and excellent. Went back couple of days later and had the ribeye (just about managed to eat it all) and swordfish, If you...

Although the steak was excellent, the fact this restaurant pitches itself as child friendly is surprising. Written on the menu is " your children must stay seated throughout their time in the restaurant" It was felt by everyone in the party that we were not welcome, because of the child in the party who was very well behaved.

Great steaks at a good price. Straight to the back of the menu for the steak special every time. We dined here 3 times in our 9 day stay. Best food we had in Rarotonga.

Decided one night we needed a good steak meal so walked next door to Albertos. We weren't disappointed - steak cooked to perfect medium rare & good variety of salads. Good value for money - will definitely visit again don't know why we left it so long.

Food was very yummy. They have a salad bar instead of bringing out salad with your mains. The salad options they had were delicious and my steak main was very good.
