We had breakfast,lunch and dinner at this fabulous resort. The smorgasbords were excellent. We were hooked on the cocktails, especially the blue stinger and the pina coladas. Every meal was very tasty, good selection.

Awesome place to have breakfast and the dinner and show package is certainly a must on your trip. We stayed at the resort and the staff all know you by name and are so helpful. The cocktail hour is not to be missed. Watching the sunset on the beach drinking cocktails-then slowly make your way over to the dinning area.... More

We stayed at the Crown Beach Resort so Oceans was our in house restaurant. The Steak and Ribs night is the best value for money dinner we had at $39pp nz. Pop long early and have a cocktail before dinner they are excellent.

We had dinner here as it had been highly recommended to us by our daughter who had dined here last year. Lovely setting, semi-outdoors. Service was initially efficient, however we waited over 45 minutes for our meals to arrive - we noted that some diners who had placed their orders had their meals arrive before ours so I knew something...

On our yearly trips to Rarotonga we always visit this restaurant but alas this time we were bitterly disappointed. Arrived for a 6.30pm booking early for happy hour at 6pm. Within the 1st 15mins we must have been asked 6 times by different staff if we would like to order, so I ordered breads and dips. We wanted to have... More

Oceans is one place on the Cook Islands that knows what good food and service are all about. We twice enjoyed very good food with friendly and attentive service on the restaurant balcony overlooking the beach: lunch one day, dinner the next. Lunch here made for a relaxing break from the sun, and dinner here was about as nice as... More

.We had the pleasure of dinning on two occasions at the Oceans Restaurant. One was the wedding reception for my daughters wedding to her wonderful man and the other was Island night. I thought the food was amazing, the service 1st class and the venue just fantastic. This really wants to make you come back again and that we will.... More
