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.

We were staying at the resort next to Puffys and to be honest there isn't much around there without needing transport. It is a cafe and very casual. The food is fresh, very tasty and huge portions. $50 for 2 with a couple of drinks.

Honestly, I wasn't hugely keen to try Puffy's. Somehow is developed this idea that it was average and not worth visiting (think I read some poor reviews?) How wrong I was!! We went last night, and went back again tonight. The staff were friendly, happy and wanted us to have a good holiday and dining experience. The restaurant is run... More

Well the surroundings weren't quite what we expected before we got to the end of the driveway. It is like a fish and chip shop with lots of tables outside it with a low roof that made it quite hot. However what we it lacked in the finer features were more than made up for the ability to wander down... More

Had two good meals of freshly caught tuna there. They had beer when the shops on the island had run out - waiting for the boat to come in. Also the owner stopped to give us a lift when we were walking back from the shops on a hot day - so I said I'd give a good review. They... More

Excellent meal of fish & chips at this casual cafe with friendly staff. The salad was also very good.
