This place has great food but its the service that takes the restaurant to 5 star, probably the best we have had in Rarotonga so far. They had a good menu selection and the food was very tasty. A nice quiet ambiance with local music playing quietly in the back ground. The wine selection was very good too and we... More

We ate here more times than I can count! Outstanding meals, my faves were of course the ika Mata, any seared tuna dish is to die for here! Wonderful staff and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Raro!

We had dinner here on our last night in Rarotonga. The service is excellent and the food is divine. Luckily we booked as just after we arrived at &pm the restaurant was full and they were turning people away. Well worth a visit

I read about this place in the local tourism mag. The day was windy and a little bit cold and so was the restaurant as they can't really shut it completely up and the table service left a bit to be desired but I can honestly say the food was OUTSTANDING! Incredible flavors, imaginative and creative. We savored every mouthful... More

We stayed at the adjoining Sunset Resort the first 5 days of our holiday. Ate here 3 evenings by choice, as it was consistently better than the top rated restos on the Island. Menu interesting with good range of choices. Plating and presentation are impeccable. We saw a lot of "art" coming out of the kitchen for diners. Taste of... More

We ate here twice for dinner while staying at the Sunset Resort. The first meal was the Sunday night BBQ... wow!! Go just for this, it was really, really good. The second meal was off the menu and everything was delicious. We were genuinely surprised at the standard and presentation of the food. All of the staff here are great... More

Great restaurant, with amazing meals on offer. Would highly recommend you have a meal here even if you are not staying at the Sunset Resort it is worth visiting.
