Nothing fancy - just fish and chip supper done well. Close to the sea so good views of the sunset. Would recommend

If you want to meet an awesome couple and enjoy their fresh and tasty fish dishes - look no further. I would recommend the local parrot fish if you are having fish and chips. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a charming little mom and pop operation that dishes up the best fish and chips we found. Fish isn't over-breaded or greasy, and the fries are always fresh and hot. The side salad is also delicious with a light and subtle dressing. Beer and wine also available. Not a bad thing to say about this place. The owners... More

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...
