Still the best steak in Rarotonga

We reviewed this restaurant on our last visit and after visiting 5 of the highest rated restaurants in Rarotonga, this is still our pick for the best steak in Rarotonga. Servings are huge and cooked just to perfection. Salad bar is fresh and nicely varied. The hosts are also fantastic, service... read more

We had the three course steak special and it was fantastic. The steak was huge and cooked to order. A salad bar and excellent dessert was included. The service was great.

As always the steak was one of the best I've had. This is one of our must have meals on our trips to Raro. No view of the water but the food and service makes up for that. One of our party had the new addition the menu, the seafood platter for one which was well presented and was very... More

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.

Another note... More

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.
