Overall good, Not great

Our breakfast was included with our plan and it was very good. Lots of different fruits, yogurt, breads, pancakes, cereals, etc. Something for everyone. Lunch and dinner was okay. I ordered a blt one day for $18, and there was only one piece of bacon on it. It was good, but seemed overpriced... read more

We had two great meals here, the last being part of an island show, which was very entertaining. The staff were friendly and helpful, advising us of what some of the local dishes were that we were not familiar with. Although we did not stay at this resort, the accommodation we did see looked great as well.

A little disappointing as had frequented this restaurant a lot 6 or 7 years ago and had great memories. Maybe it doesn't pay to go backwards when one has good memories! Food and service fairly average.

A beautiful place with a wonderful lagoon. Our bungalow was beautifully located next to the beach viewing the lagoon. The room was nice and clean. You can borrow kayaks for free. Snorkling was very nice. Friendly staff. The restaurant has very good food. Breakfast was included with cereals/bread, fruits and juice. Highly recommended.

Like : Good selection in breakfast menu. Love their island chips during lunch. Pretty average dinner in comparison to other restaurants on the island. Dislike: Chicken and cat roaming around looking for food when you eating.

Stopped here for coffee. Would have had more but were en route only. They looked to have a very good menu. Not open for dinner which is a shame.

My wife and I spent six nights at the resort, having lunch and evening meals, at the restaurant. It is obviously apparent that the manager and his wife have had a wealth of knowledge and experience in the hospitality, food , and beverage trade in the southern hemisphere. Attention to detail, with outstanding "special" evenings were highlights during our stay.... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Aitutaki and while driving around on a scooter we passed Tamanu resort and decided to cool down with a drink and maybe nibble on something. The restaurant is overlooking at the beach, probably the most maintained and the prettiest on the island. Unfortunately, the kitchen was closed but the staff was kind... More

Lunch menu and prices are great. Dinner is over priced so just stick with this one for lunch. The food was fantastic. Top notch!
