The best breakfast to lunch you will have on Aitutaki. If you ever make it across and am stuck on what to eat - go to Koru Cafe, you won't regret it! :)

Best coffee on the island. The food is great and reasonably priced and they even have gluten free alternatives. The staff are friendly too! Definitely worth a trip up to Ootu beach to eat here!

Nice place to eat and enjoy the friendly service. Just watch the mosquitos and use plenty of repellant.

Really great tucker, they easily catered for fussy teenagers. And the service was exceptional, in a pleasant casual setting.

Great food and service! Wow. I highly recommend this little resturant. It's sort of modern compared to the other restaurants on the island. The coffee bar is happening. The servers were genuine and sweet.

Fresh , tasty ,unique and friendly. when you are after something like you would want from home this place has it as well as a lot of very local delicious menu items and prepared fresh and to order. The absolutely most delicious eggs on the planet (probably because the chooks eat mangoes and tropical fruit all day) and large portions... More

We pre ordered three large salads to feed 16 people at our villa. Beautifully presented, generous, tasty salads that were the perfect complement to our BBQ. Highly recommended by everyone
