Nice spot for some beers overlooking Muri lagoon, well priced, and they take credit cards which is rare on Rarotonga. Directly oppsosite captain Tama tours and next to night markets to location is amazing.

We had our wedding reception here 8 years ago and the food was fantastic then so we were keen to try it again. And it didn't disappoint - once again the food was cooked beautifully. The 2 dessert options we tried were also quite different and really tasty. Highly recommended

We stayed in Muri for a couple of weeks and discovered Thurs night burger night- the best! With options for our vegetarian friend, this was the best spot on the island with beautiful views over the lagoon.

We had phoned in advance to make a booking for Good Friday as we knew being Easter a lot would be shut. The restaurant took our booking with no problems but when we turned up they were shut. This left a family of 10, 4 of those children with nowhere to eat as everywhere else was booked out. Not good... More

My favourite place for a evening cocktail or beer and a little snack. Lovely view over the Muri lagoon.

Great location on Muri beach. Sadly it was raining on our visit therefore sat under cover. Two of us shared the seafood platter which was delicious and I would recommend.

Dinner on the terrace at sunset is lovely. Cocktails are delicious and staff very friendly. We had a great night out and the seafood was extremely tasty. Well worth a visit.

We had a great lunch at Sails they specialise in local food and it is delicious. Reasonable prices and large portions. We were able to share a lunch between two.

Great location on the beach but the service does vary. Can get very busy and then they struggle to cope. Food is good but can be served cold when they are busy !!! Staff try hard and are friendly

Thank stuart745
