We had dinner once and walked down the beach for a cocktail one other time. The dinner was excellent .Quiet table overlooking the beach. Service was good and at the end of the evening the owner gave us a lift back to the hotel. Definitely...would recommend.More

We stumbled upon this place on our first night in Rarotonga. It was 30-something degrees, humid, and we were feeling pretty average having walked 20 minutes from our accommodation to explore the area. (Silly people) This place is hidden down a long driveway. We actually...were worried we were walking towards someone's house originally. The staff are super friendly, and were happy to seat our group immediately even though it looked like they had a busy night ahead of them by the looks of all the reserved signs. This place is right on the beach, and you can walk down the steps and look at the scenery while waiting for your meals. The food is so good that we were happy we chose to stop there. Our group had the fish plate, a tuna dish, garlic bread, and a chicken salad. It came out quickly and tasted delicious. It didnt last very long. There was also live music by a very talented young man. All in all, a good accidental stop.More

Supper for two. Perfect 😍 Ate here feb 2020, on my birthday. Firstly the owner came and collected us from our hotel which was a couple of kilometres away, and returned us after a delightful meal. A much appreciated service, thank you Chris. The lady...of the house had a pina colada, which she declared was sublime! I had a beer and the steak with pepper sauce. Beautiful steak and perfectly cooked medium rare. The other main was a rack of ribs, again lovely, with chips and coleslaw etc. We only managed half of this but they happily boxed it up for us. Couldn’t even look at a dessert. Spent the rest of the evening there looking at the beautiful view of the ocean, listening to the guy playing the guitar (and singing) and having a boogey to the tracks we favoured. They even sang me Happy Birthday! A lovely evening thank you Fiona and the staff at Waterline. 👍😊More

We visited once for lunch and had delicious fish sandwiches. Nice spot right on the beach. I don't think they serve breakfast.

Stopped in for lunch, it was quiet and had an Oceanside table. The nautical decor is awesome with lots of old relics. All wood construction on a raised deck above the beach. Tables were mostly single slabs of different woods. Food was great, some non...standard menu items, nourishing bowl salad and Thai fish cake with salad. Service was excellent.More

Nice spot over looking the water, although a bit hard to find, down a lane way off the main road. Very limited parking. Food menu not extensive but what we ordered was nice enough. Some nice locals beers and cocktails. All in all not bad,...but not special either.More

A bit hard to find, but once you do the seats down on the edge of the beach are just lovely. Small but tasty menu with very friendly staff.

Sorry for such a long delay. We do have gluten free options. We advise you let the staff know at time of booking so Chef can also be informed.
