Fish and chips!

Near to Raro Club, 5 min walk. Delisious. Fresh. All the locals, half locals, gather here . Nothing happens on Sundays, as the whole Island is closed

Went here in May 2014. Was ok but way over priced. Went with my family and got a couple of meals but it just wasn't enough. Think it was more the location you pay for rather than the food. Not too sure I'd go back

Liked the setting and being able to buy a drink with dinner next door. I think the salad could be more healthy without all that mayo! The kids practicing their hula was priceless! Cheap eat.

Great food & views, super fresh fish and beautiful scenery, but it does get dark early and quickly so be prepared for that.

food as fresh as you could wish for. Most unusual facilities, an old launch turned cafe with tables outside, out of the sun and a stunning seaside view. In the same property as the game fish club could just perhaps entice some to go fishing. A great island style place to take a quick lunch or relax over a drink... More

We started driving around Raro looking for something to eat. Came across the Flying Boat, tucked in next to a fishing club. Don't expect anything fancy but it was good honest fish and chips. Very nice and perfect for relaxed day in the Cook Islands.

A lovely spot to stop for lunch... the view and sounds of the crashing waves is relaxing! Food was ok here and not too expensive.

Excellent burgers and chips from the Flying Boat, a great location beside the water with the option to get a drink from the Game Fishing Club and sit undercover. Really friendly helpful staff. Don’t miss out, these burgers are fantastic!!

On almost every visit to Raro,we make a point of visiting the Game Fishing Club for Happy Hour and after a few drinks and shared laughs with the locals about the one that got away,we inevitably feel the munchies coming on,so a visit to the Flying Boat for a takeaway is a must,always well cooked and not dripping in fat...
