This place does'nt deliver the "wow" factor expected of a 5 star resort; the food is bland/average at best and nothing like the menu description. Many of the dishes are deep fried. All the wines are $16/glass, which is crazy when you can get similar quality NZ wine at other places on the Island for $8/glass.
We found the staff were also unprofessional, one served us in bare feet, and we had to ask to place our order after waiting to be served for 20 minutes. The wiating staff hung around the bar area, chatting to each other and gigling. We had to pour our own wine.
Don't come here for a romantic dinner, you may find young children running around on the opposite table like we experienced. The best dishes were the desserts. We had dinner here on our last night on Aitutaki - 4 entree sizes, 1 green salad, 2 desserts and an "ordinary quality" bottle of NZ white wine, the bill came to $212. This place is over priced and over rated.
