We went to Cafe Salsa on out last visit to Rarotonga, and it is still as good as last time.This time I had the Iki Mata, which I love, and my wife had the Cajun Fish Sandwich. Both were excellent, and the Iki Mata was very generous, and had a wonderful mixture of flavours. And really good value as well.... More

We stopped here for lunch, tempted by the wood-fired pizzas, and had a delicious meal of pizza and salad. Kids were entertained by a family of chicks scavenging for dropped crumbs!

The service of the team is great. Very welcoming and accommodating. They are very attentive to you and the food comes out fast, right, hot and tasty. I felt like I was in New Zealand being at Cafe Salsa. The coffee hit the spot, the protein smoothie was just what I needed! Great idea and the omelette was perfect. You... More

Whether you want to stop in for coffee (try iced mochas to give you that afternoon lift) or have a lunch, this is the place to get it. Never made... More

We had several nice meals at Cafe Salsa. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Good with kids. Food was tasty. Prices as expected. Portions are big so share or take your left over with you in a take-away box.

We spent a couple of weeks in Raro last year and spent most lunches here! There is a good variety of food which was well cooked and very tasty. The only thing that I would have liked was some air con as I found it quite hot, however I was pregnant so probably wouldn't have bothered anyone else :)
