Good atmosphere, good service, great food. Don't expect food to be cheaper than NZ, it isn't because it is an island that imports alot of their raw materials, but the seafood and anything with a coconut base is really, really worth the money.

Great service. Staff very helpful. Had their Chicago pizza which was on their specials. My god I am still thinking about that pizza. Was recommended by the staff. Well worth the wait.

We came here for dinner as our first meal on the Cook Islands. We loved our two dishes, with both coming out piping hot. The seafood was delicious and the meal very tasty. Service was great and the view of the harbour amazing! We really enjoyed our meal.

Had a lovely fish and salad for lunch and a smoked fish mornay for dinner. Not on the same night but it was lovely and having dinner right next to the water was amazing.

Set right next to the small harbour this bar offers cool breezes with your drink. A nice atmosphere for a leisurely chat and drink.

On waters edge, next to boat launch. Good food, great atmosphere, fun party place but they have a quiet dinning area. Outside bar

Only had a single fish dish which was fresh and tasty - there had been rain in the afternoon and the wooden seats on the balcony were damp to sit on - they must have been a bit slow in lowering the cafe blinds! Service was fine, but as with eating out anywhere in Rarotonga, pricey for what you get... More
