Went for lunch & had the fish special & it was delicious. The view is beautiful and meals consistently good. I recommend you book. We went only at lunch time to enjoy the view. Worth a visit for sure

We came for dinner in June 13 and deliberately picked an evening without show. Without "masses" that move towards the location, we didn't find it easy to make our way to the dining area. We were told to follow the lights but they diffused and mingeld with other lights so we stumbled in dusk towards the dining space. First we... More

Fire dancing!! Excellent display of traditional dancing with fire in the rain no less!! they were troopers and professionals and gave us a show in the rain. The musicians were exceptional and I even saw some of them at the airport the next day as we left. Aitutakians have at least 3 jobs!!

We only came for drinks and the show, but I can tell you it was one of the best and most entertaining island nights we had in our three weeks in CI. The dancers were truely talented but most of all very charming. The smile on their faces could not be faked. Theses dancers, both male and female, were truely... More

The meals were very nice, but the prices put you off eating there more than once... didn't do the Beach BBQ night as it was $45 each, and didn't include drinks (and wasn't even on the beach). Breakfasts were good, as were the Tropical Punch mocktails.

We ate here on both an À la carte and BBQ night. We were really happy with the food from the menu, sharing the lamb and the pasta dish. Both were really scrummy and the service was good. The staff were friendly and polite and looked lovely. The atmosphere and setting is also lovely. We later came here for the... More

We ate at the buffet which was just barely average.The young hostess was bordering on rude when I moved slightly ahead of her on the way to our seat. She snipped,``where are you going, you don`t know where you are to sit!`` It was the show with local people that made this dining experience fantastic. They were not like so... More
