“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

Love this restaurant, we went there last year and made sure we visited a couple times this year. The food is lovely and fresh and plenty of it. The biggest decision is what to have as the have a great menu with good prices. Service is also good and seems the place to eat for the locals..Keep up the good work hope to see you next year.

“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010

Find the big budget sign and travel to the inner road to find this out of the way restaurant on the inner road.. (tucked inside the big furniture sales room factory..)
WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE... Excellent prices, quality and value for monies...Great homely cooked meals of above average portions with a great Rarotongan atmosphere and service to boot... 4.00 beers and most meals sub 20.00 which would surpass some of the better restaurants around the Island...A MUST WHEN IN RAROTONGA.. You wont be disappointed
This is where the locals come...must say it all:}

“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2010

This place is AMAZING! The meals are extremely reasonably priced - $15 for a steak meal. The portions are very generous and the food is of a surprisingly high quality. Better food and value than the majority of reputable restaurants we have been to on the island. The entrees are huge, the dessert board has an impressive variety of cakes, cheesecakes and sundaes. I had the tropicana salad - a huge garden salad loaded with local ingredients, topped with succulent BBQ chicken pieces, and mouth watering chocolate cake and vanilla icecream for dessert. The service was prompt and friendly. The atmosphere is laid back and casual. Child friendly. Majority of customers were locals. Four of us dined and had drinks, entrees, mains and desserts for under a total of $120.
