We had planned on popping into Trader Jacks, but they were unfortunately closed. Instead, while driving aimlessly, we stopped at Tumunu, as the carpark was relatively full, so thought it must be popular. And boy was it! We order an entree to share and 2 drinks each before our meals arrived. Both ordered the surf and turf which was insanely... More

This place is great! we sat outside amongst tropical gardens and had the seafood platter for 2. The service was really friendly. The platter was more than any person should eat. It was really big and was full of fresh seafood. I Cant remember everything in it but there were oysters, fish, prawns, mussels, scallops... plus more! At $80 for... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before but feel it is only fair I do it again as we have just returned from our 8th trip to Raro. We had a steak meal with mushroom sauce, the steaks were cooked perfectly, the salad was awesome as was the Tumunu mash potatoes which are to die for. The meal serving was huge,... More

Our party of 8 (4 couples) had dinner here on a Sunday night. It was pretty quiet and the decor is hilarious. The wait staff were friendly and good for a laugh. The food was good without being great. This place is best suited for a group meal or drinks.

Kia orana Thanks for the nice review and for taking the time to review. It is lovely in the garden area. It's my favourite place when the weather is fine.
