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.

As Puffy’s was close to us, we had a few dinners there. The Fish and Chips is great, and the salad you get with it is the BEST. We also went to the Island night there and it was a lovely night, lots of local people and a huge buffet.

The casual setting of this place is charming. It is on the back verandah of a home, with tables decorated with tropical tablecloths. We ordered the fish and chips (which came with a tasty side salad) and we were not disappointed. The servings were huge and everything was very well cooked and delicious. The .50c per glass of wine was... More

We ate here one night for dinner, it is run by a local couple and they are really good food. The menu is limited and it is what is available on the island that day. We loved that, you know you are eating fresh food, I would highly recommend this place. Their daughter, Puffy, also runs a local takeaway heading... More

During a recent trip to Aitutaki we came across a small restaurant called “Puffys”. It’s owned by a lovely husband and wife who cook the most fantastic parrot fish and chips we’ve ever had. A holiday on Aitutaki would not be complete without eating at Puffy’s.

A visit (or several visits in our case) to Puffy's while in Aitutaki is a must. Wonderful hosts, great setting, looking out to the lagoon, the best, freshly caught local fish (Mahimahi, Parrot fish, Snapper,Tuna or Wahoo) served with a fresh island style salad and chips on the island. We will be back.

Puffy's is a good place to go for an inexpensive, but very nice meal. We especially loved the Island Night dancing and fireshow that was just as good as the one offered by Tamanu Beach. The food was more authentic and the atmosphere much more pleasant.

Best fish and chips we had on the island. It as just down the street from our hotel and had a great local feel to it. Only wish they were still serving lunch.
