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.

Not exactly cutting edge in decor or presentation but don't be deceived by the looks. We only got takeaway but the food was great!

Puffys is awesome. The food is great for very reasonable prices. Offer changes daily. In addition Puffy is very nice. You really feel welcome. I can especially recommend the fresh salade with mango, papaya and carambole. What an alternative in very expensive Aitutaki.
