The whole restaurant felt very dated, the service was average and the food looked tired and tasted average. Our group of 5 all wished we had chosen somewhere else for our evening meal. This was our worst meal on the island in 9 days. I overheard a staff member being told off for being too generous with the ice creams... More

We went to this restaurant twice. The first time there were 5 of us. Two ordered a pizza and were not thrilled. The rest had seafood and all enjoyed their seafood. Service was spotty. While the waiter was initially friendly, when the wrong meal was brought to the table he argued over what we had ordered. Service this first time... More

I would agree with a previous reviewer...the service here is not snappy, plan on taking your time, it is very relaxed and not the place for a quick meal. I don't know if it is a staffing issue or just they way they operate...don't get me wrong, they were pleasant just slow. If you are in a hurry you may... More

We dined at Captain Andy's twice as it was convenient to our resort. We didn't have a reservation and maybe that made the difference, but we waited a long time for our order to be taken and equally as long for our food to arrive, I'd guess over half an hour each. We almost didn't return after our first meal... More

We had such trouble finding a restaurant which didn't have the obligatory "Coconut Chicken Curry, Rib Eye, Beef Lasagna and Fish, Fish, Fish". Went to the Rarotongan to find some other food - were delighted with being able to share some Nachos for lunch and ordered a take away pizza for dinner which was actually quite lovely. The cocktails were... More

On our recent trip to Raro we decided to head out and try another resort for dinner, we ended up at Captain Andy's Bar & Grill at the Rarotongan. It wasn't a particularly busy night but there seemed to be a lack of staff taking orders, we eventually went to the bar to order our drinks and food. The butter... More
