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.

Tasty and quick. Always great service, a nice to stop for lunch. The iced coffee is especially good on hot day

Puffys was an awesome place to eat- gorgeous fresh grilled fish with a generous salad $12. Our group of 16 was easily accommodated. A second meal for 16 was 'takeaway' with pre-ordered fish and chicken and salad

Puffys offer the best fish and chips on the island, hands down. Huge portions with delicious salads and a great selection of drinks to wash it down. Definitely check it out while on Aitutaki

Food is fresh and plentiful. Fish was tuna and was fresh and cooked to perfection. It is a small cafe but is worth a stop for lunch or dinner.

We had several recommendations for this restaurant and we did pass it by several times as we did not really see anything. Entering the restaurant is looked more like it was a take-away from someone’s home with the possibility to eat on the spot. There were a few tables outside under a covered veranda.
