Puffy's was on my list before I even got to the island as I'd heard about it before leaving. $12 got you awesome fish and chips, with a relaxed dine-in spot looking out into the lagoon!

Went to puffy's for dinner and got the fish and chips with salad. Easily the best fish and chips I have tasted and the salad was so delicious I wish I had room for more (and I'm not a salad lover at all). Excellent value for money as well. The atmosphere wasn't amazing. The day we were there there were... More

Apparently some have had wonderful experiences here. The night we came, I'm pretty sure they served what had been sitting in the frig for a few days to get rid of it. We didn't get sick, but it was the worst-textured, toughest fish we've ever had and it was almost $50 for 2 fish n chips and 2 waters. We... More

Puffy's restaurant offers what I think is the very best budget eating in Aitutaki. In my last trip I was eating there at least 3 nights a week, and of course I got to know Mama quit well. Tuna steaks, salad and fries with a beer for $25!. So if you're visting Aitutaki, give Puffy's a try, youn won't regret... More

My husband and I live on Aitutaki and eat out constantly. I was delighted to find the Mother's Day buffet the best we have ever had here or in Rarotonga. Succulent fresh pork, chicken, fish, local dishes, ample salads, and poke, the local banana pudding. Also a lovely one man band and fabulous Polynesian dance show with a child and... More

Puffy is a real Cook Islander, go there to know what I mean. Her fish and chips are excellent. I liked the plain, simple and authentic style of he place, more a hangar than restaurant but the real atmosphere. Not for fuzzies...

The place looks like the back of a house. This is a local family trying to make a living and they are doing a good job. We had the fish and chips. The salad was freshly made. Generous serving good value. Support the locals not the foreign owners in resorts. Great spot to watch the sunset.

We went to Puffy's in search of alternate dining from our resort, which wasn't serving the most compelling meals. We found Puffy's near the end of our stay and wish we'd found it sooner. We had great fish and chips here, although the place is way, way casual, it's a great place to drop in for a less costly meal.... More

After being throughly recommended this establishment, my Wife and I decided to leave our resort and venture to Puffys world famous fish and chips. Upon entering the courtyard, we made our way to place an order. We both ordered the standard fish and chips and were offered either grilled or battered. My Wife who has given up sugar decided to...
