Busy Place, great fish & chips

Lots of locals, great atmosphere, like being in a real busy household, good portions, cold beer and lots of conversation!

I liked the atmosphere here -- local, outdoor seating. The food was deep fried and tasted pretty good; don't come here for healthy food!

Excellent value and a good quantity and quality of both fish and chips. The counter staff were friendly and I did not wait long for the order. A very good choice for take out.

Lovely locals who can cook the best fish chips and salad. Cold beer available. Clean toilets. The ladies are super friendly and love a chat and a laugh. The fish is always fresh. We had a few dinners here as it was close to where we stayed. Fresh Mahi Mahi, Marlin and Yellowfin

Great value local fish and chips. Don't expect too much from the décor but then again, this is Aitutaki, so just go with the flow. Grab a feed, sit down on the beach and relax.

We tried to eat here a couple of times. The first time we went there was nobody there- no owners-no workers -no customers but the chalkboard sign said open for lunch and dinner. We came for lunch around 2pm. It is some ones home with a kitchen in the back and a covered eating area with tables and chairs outside.... More

Puffy's was alright, but a bit overpriced for a not so good chicken and chips. It's either that or the fish and chips, so I would get the fish next time. It's also like $23 for each, so not really take away prices. But since there are really no eating out options on Aitutake that are not at a lodge... More
