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

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.
