We were told as the Resort was fully booked it wasn’t possible to have dinner there but that we were welcome for lunch and coffee. We then walked all the way up to the pacific resort to have lunch. As we arrived the Black Rock Café was pretty empty and they offered us a table, I then said that we... More

At first, everything seemed promising. The setting of the restaurant is amazingly beautiful, surrounded as it is by lush tropical gardens, and with a stunning view over the ocean. We were greeted in a warm and friendly way, and the menu looked very promising, with a wide variety of different dishes which sounded interesting. But everything went downhill very quickly.... More

The food was amazing! This was fine dining, worth the money because the food was so good. Amazing views which we couldn't fully appreciate because it was getting dark, but you must eat here.

The restaurant was a cut above all the other local style ones on the island. Very classy, much more city/fine dining style. Lovely atmosphere and great menu but it was definitely not 'island' prices. Nice for a special night out.

The setting was beautiful for watching sunset. We were ushered to a table and given a menues. It took a little while before we had to signal someone to come over to order our drinks during which we thought we should order the food as well seeing the service was a little slow. The food arrived before our first drinks.... More

The food was presented beautifully, but flavours were a bit disappointing. This was made up by the beautiful location overlooking the beach, the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant and resort, and good service. We also had cocktails on the beach another day and were impressed by the location, atmosphere and service then. On both occasions staff treated us very well,... More

We tried the Rapae Bay Restaurant and just loved it. The stunning view, the sunset while we spotted some whales, the great food and friendly service... It was the perfect match!

We didn't stay here during our trip but did have dinner on the last night of our stay in Aitutaki. The fish was beautifully cooked, it was fresh and very well presented. The staff are lovely, very friendly and efficient, we would certainly eat here again.

I had heard mixed reviews of Rapae so was a little nervous about our special anniversary dinner here. I am pleased to say it was fabulous. Although we werent staying at the hotel we were given prime seating, in a perfect spot to view the sunset. I understand that often casual diners dont get to sit on the outer deck... More
