Ocean's literally has your front row seats for watching the sunset! Happy hour specials are great. The kitchen graciously accommodated requests for vegetarian options as these are limited on the menu. Service is great! The breakfast buffet had a wide variety of options that changed daily.

We started our day with a delicious breakfast everyday while looking out at the lagoon and the ocean beyond. I can recommend the yummy chicken pizza for lunch! Dinner was a la carte most nights and I enjoyed my duck breast and pork belly dinners. Sometimes I found the soya sauce a bit strong for me with some of the... More

Oceans had great choice of food and the service was friendly and helpful at every meal - I was hardly surprised to meet several other guests from other resorts who had come over to enjoy it - and the beautiful view!!

We had our dinner at this restaurant, and we liked the food. But we loved the drink better. They had a special happy hour drink that called cocktail of the day which my other half was very happy with. We ordered lamb shank which I liked, and rack of ribs which he said was ok'd.

We've been to Rarotonga loads of times now, but somehow had never found this restaurant before. It was recommended by a fellow walker when my husband did the over the island trek. We went early to sit facing the beach and had cocktails while we watched the sun set. Then we moved into the restaurant to have our meal. We... More

We turned up late with no booking but were quickly accommodated by bright, happy and friendly staff. The service was excellent, lovely music and outdoor dinning feel. All meals looked brilliant with large serves, my husbands food was great, my vegetarian meal (cos cos salad- the only vegetarian dish on the menu) was small and very plan. An excellent restaurant...
