My husband bought a meal from here. He watched it being prepared. No gloves, sweat on hands after wiping forehead. Yuk. Along with that it was so fatty. Just dripping. It look and tasted disgusting. We didn't eat it all as it didn't have taste. I didn't see the preparation only my husband. He didn't tell me until I'd ate... More

My bride just wanted a quiet lunch on the beach, so to find Puffys location was perfect. We had some nice local fish for lunch that we could take down to the beach & sit under the little hut on the beach & watch the amazing blue ocean roll on by... Definitely a good place to chill out & relax... More

We walked along the beach from our accommodation to Puffy's - a bit tricky to find from the beach side but well worth the effort - a very simple house-type building, extensive menu, beer, wine and some of the best fish and chips you will ever taste.

Lovely fish and chips - generous amount of fish, volume of chips a bit stingy but a nice salad on the side.

This is a small takeaway shop (no frills) but big menu, good value and very nice food. Operated by locals.

Puff's has the best fish and chips on Aitutaki! Super fresh fish! They are open very limited hours, but that's how it is when you run a business out of the back or your house. The owners are very friendly and you can call ahead for take away food. The prices are very reasonable.

This is a very basic cafe with some of the best fish you'll find on the island. The salad was also good.
