Fish & Chips

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

Turned up, seemed like it wasn't open but just before leaving they showed their face and took orders. No chicken and no bread (i.e no burgers) available. This place was talked up as epic fish and chips but in my opinion they preparation was just average. On the plus side the fish was very fresh Tuna! so it's an OK... More

We wanted a burger but when we arrived for dinner we found that is only available at lunchtime. So we settled for fish n chips. Complete with the best salad the fish was so tasty, we would've dined more often if it wasn't the end of our stay. We will be back!

Good food. They ran out of fish (I know I laughed to also) so we got the chicken and chips. Not bad.

We tried to go here for lunch one afternoon, and the sign outside said "Open for Lunch 12pm - 2pm". Unfortunately, Puffy's wasn't actually open and when I asked, the lady gruffly replied that they weren't open that day and then turned her back on me and walked back inside... Hmmm....

We walked along the beach to Puffy's and very much enjoyed our meal of fish and chips with a delicious salad of greens and mango. Puffy and his wife are also delightful. Easy and laid back, can eat there including a table on the beach or do take out.
