We ate here twice both times had fish and chips. Fish was beautifully cooked with light batter, chips crispy and good serving of salad. Décor amazing. Nice place to have a beer when you stay this end of the island.

We visited twice first for diner, not so hot. Pork Korean style quite bland. Lunch better good burger, nice rice. Like all food on Aitutaki over priced for what you get.

Booked this 3 nights in a row rather than eating at our overpriced hotel. So grateful that The Boat Shed was there for us to enjoy. Every meal was a treat. Thank you Boat Shed for finally proving that The Cook Islands aren't a money-grab...More

This place should be a historical landmark. There’s a great bar with lots of pictures around the restaurant. It also has outside seating. The food was wonderful and inexpensive. He should not miss eating here it’s a great experience.

Fun place to hang out (lots of weird and wonderful memorabilia on the walls) but awful cocktails and food was pretty dire.

A local favorite . There are thoughtful outdoor trampoline and other kid friendly toys whilst adults and families enjoy great food and spot on service. It can get very busy.

Fitted out with quirky memorabilia on the walls and with a kids' playroom off to the side, the meals were fabulous and the serviced attentive. We had drinks and nibbles here one evening and returned the following evening for dinner.
