Yummy

We ate a few times while staying in Rarotonga, their burgers are AMAZING. There isn't a long wait for your food which is great as well. Staff are very friendly

Food was standard, can take a while to arrive... so don't be in a hurry. The meal size is good, a lot of battered items... and very New Zealand items, would be good to see more local food. Nice area to eat in, next to the pool but can get very windy. We ate here 3 nights out of the... More

The food was excellent. The cuisine was distinctly New Zealand which was a little disappointing because we wanted local food. Prices ~$30/main. I probably wouldn't return. It's not worth waiting an hour and a half when the restaurant is mostly empty.

Really good pub food and kids meals. A wide variety of meal options. A kids meal would do an adult for lunch. Could be a little slow to come out at times, but you're on island time so it didn't really matter.

Our group of 12 went for Thursday night Surf and Turf buffet dinner at Te Vaka restaurant (the main restaurant at The Rarotongan). All but 2 people were extremely disappointed with their meals some commenting that it was the worst steak they had ever had. T-bone steak and sirloin were not the correct cuts of meat, they were tough, fatty... More

I would not choose this as a destination restaurant but it provided reasonably priced food for guests of the hotel

Staff are not interested therefore bad service and long wait lines. One time we waited 45 minutes to get our drinks and if you queue at the bar they still don't care.
