This is located at the Pacific Resort. Wonderful view of the lagoon and the food is amazing. One night we had the seafood platter for two and it was incredible. Highly recommend!

My wife and I were on our honeymoon for 10 days in Aitutaki. We ate both lunch at the bar and dinner at the restaurant a number of times. We really enjoyed every meal. We especially enjoyed our lunches at the poolside bar chatting with James, the bar tender. James was always fun to talk to and also gave us... More

I felt that I should submit a review as my wife and I have now dined here twice on our honeymoon. Rapae Bay is astonishingly good for its remote location; the dining experiences we have had so far rival others we have had in major cities such as Sydney, New York, Las Vegas and Tokyo. Every meal we have had... More

I was lucky to have had a sirloin steak meal at the Rapae Bay Restaurant it was beautifully cooked, tender and tasty. Service was impeccable.

We ate lunch here as the weather was bad so the staff recommended the restaurant instead of the café. They said the menu was the same, anyway. We had burgers, which were delicious with lovely fries and dips. It was one of the best meals we had on the island (even though it was just burgers), and very reasonably priced.... More

We had a lovely meal here but outsiders don't enjoy the same good tables as hotel guests, which is understandable. We actually found the less formal dining area down near the pool just as pleasant on another evening.

Firstly for me I must say the toilet paper covers were a highlight! We had a lovely afternoon stop for a cocktail then a dinner reservation later that night, and a second dinner a few days after that. Definitely the best food we have had on our entire holiday! We paid $40 for a bottle of New Zealand wine. Mains... More

The restaurant is set up above the resort so if you want to enjoy the view either go for lunch or an early dinner. The food is resort style and well executed. We had the sashimi platter which was fabulous although the wasabi sorbet was melting. The complimentary soursop sorbet, however, was perfect. Dessert was a highlight with a trio... More

We stayed at the resort and were not disappointed by the food served at the restaurant ... we even had the 5 course dinner on the beach which was great.

Breakfast was delicious with great complimentary fruit and freshly pressed fruit juice. We had a leisurely breakfast while admiring the beautiful view of the lagoon. Service was impeccable and they didn't mind us lingering on after service was concluded. Price was surprisingly not more expensive than the other cafes we have visited on the island.
