We went over to Aitutaki Village most days and stopped in to Koru for a coffee and cake. It was THE BEST coffee on the island by far. The cake was pecan and banana and was so delicious. Perfect host too !!......Highly recommend if you miss good coffee

We love the menu selection and food at Koru cafe. We visited the restaurant in Nov 2011 and Nov 2016. Food and service is still great!

Stopped here for lunch - fabulous food and service. Koru offer BBQ packs that you can pick up as well - order the day before. Fantastic location on the island.

We had lunch and did the take away dinner option (cook it yourself at your resort) at Koru Cafe. The food was very good but we found lunch to be a little pricey for the quantity of food you get. The take away dinner option was terrific. Reasonably priced and a good option if you have a kitchen and grill... More

The coffee in most places in the cook islands is pretty ordinary so it was a real bonus to find this place! The breakfast was amazing! We had the omelette and the bacon & egg roll. Both were gourmet and absolutely delicious!

Modern, very good food, relaxed atmosphere, very pleasant staff. Was told that WiFi was available but it did not work for me (here or elsewhere except the WiFi headquarters). Some mosquitos on this side of the island but they mitigated the problem a couple ways

It's only open until 3 pm. Not much else to do on the Island, so you would think as good as the food is, they would stay open later! Oh well, 'twas great food anyway!

Great dishes, served with a smile. The standard menu has some great options, with something for everyone. They have specials every day too. Iced coffee and chocolate are great on a hot day. Wine is good. Pork sliders with chips are a great meal that 2 people can easily share. But the best thing? The chocolate brownie with ice-cream for... More

this cafe is a nice change from resort food. The menu is good and the chef is willing to adjust for dietary needs. They also offer curries but request an order 24 hours in advance so they can give them enough time to simmer. They will pack up a takeaway pack so you can take it with you - delicious.This... More
