We went for the pizza buffet, were not sure if there were any vegetarian offerings so asked for a cheese pizza-- and that's exactly what we got, a pizza crust with just cheese on it, no sauce. We did try a veggie pizza but it was not very good. The fries were barely warm and the other offerings (bread, salad)... More

I have raised a few glasses in a number of bars around the world and have to say the view of the ocean breakers rolling in from the sea make the view from this lovely second floor establishment one of the better places I have enjoyed. I ordered a take-out pizza on one occasion and it was delicious, covered with... More

I highly recommend a stop at this gem of a bar/restaurant while visiting the Cooks. The staff was friendly and welcoming, the drinks reasonably priced and the food was great. Went there multiple times during our stay and loved all you can eat pizza night.

High Tide is awesome. It has an amazing view, and is the perfect place to relax with some drinks and chat with the locals. The open air bar, beautifully decorated with hand carved wood, had exactly the island feel we were looking for, and they have great drink specials and delicious food. The staff is SO friendly and fun and... More

Arrived just before 6pm as the meals started at 6 the pizza was sitting in the open cold. The fries looked and tasted as if they had been reheated from lunch time, the pasta and salad were not much better. Will not be going there in future unless they make some major changes

Horrible pizza. Too bad. Expensive. It's not so difficult to make a pizza, but this is the worst solution. It should be better to give a pizza license to people that wants to sell it.

We were drawn in by the $3 beer sign on the street and it was a great little bar where the locals gave you a friendly smile as you came in. We had kids with us so it was just a quick drink but the menu looked good and they have special deals on every night.

The bar is upstairs which gives you a beautiful view of Avurua Bay with the ships and lights. High Tide offers all you can eat pizza, pasta, salad, fries, and garlic bread. The bar and grill plays good music and offers a variety of drinks at good prices. It has a small dance floor if you want to dance. The... More
