Hubby and I travelled to Aitutaki for a week celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and we had many of our meals here. Lovely staff, food very fresh, yummy and excellent for such small island plus the view just "amazing"

This hotel is in an idyllic location; the accommodation and facilities are first class and the local staff are excellent but the hotel is let down by the food which is not 5 star.Breakfast is very much a hit and miss affair depending on who is doing the cooking. As an example of the food we had fish and chips... More

We had the seafood feast that was more than two of us could eat! Great service, better than average island wine list. The fish was so fresh! And we are from coastal California Get a seat on the edge of the dining room for a gorgeous sunset experience!

We loved coming here to eat. Whether in the restaurant or more casual environment down by the cafe. The tuna steaks are beyond amazing and can't go wrong with their cocktails. The waitresses were so lovely and interactive.

Had dinner here and really enjoyed the desert! Had the seafood risotto for dinner but it didn't taste very good! It seemed like it was cheese on rice with a little bit of seafood, which, oddly did not have a seafood flavour at all! Also very pricey however the staff are amazing and the desert out of this world

Walked along the beach from our resort to his one and had dinner. Service was absolutely perfect, food was top-notch with a lot of attention to detail and ambience was delightful.

I recently dined here with my partner and two other friends from Australia. I can only say that our experience was faultless. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, and quite delicious, and the service excellent. The setting is, of course, quite stunning, with views out over the lagoon. This is really a very pleasurable dining experience. I highly recommend... More

Dined here for lunch and dinner while we were staying at another resort. Beautiful setting and in general lunch was great. The dinner seafood platter was ok. The setting was very nice and service was good, especially compared to the Aitutaki lagoon resort. Seafood was not overcooked. Would go again, though maybe not the platter.
