We went for dinner. The meal was excellent - 4 of us ordered different food and all enjoyed our meals. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is also a very nice location both in terms of proximity to many accommodation locations, as well as...having a beautiful outlook.More

We had two meals at OTB this trip. A new place for us and on our must visit list. The view is excellent as funnily enough, it’s on the beach. The floor is sand. The staff and the menu are excellent. The meals were simply...first class. You will not be disappointed if you pay them a visit.More

We had an awesome meal. Service was quick and friendly. Very well priced with three courses for $60 extremely good value. Then there is the setting - just stunning. A must to eat for anyone coming to Rarotonga but you must book as popular.

This is one of the best eating places in Rarotonga. The food is amazing great aesthetics. Would recommend to everyone. Take the three course option not overly expensive beautifully presented.

The positives: easily the best meal we had in our week in Rarotonga. I had the game fish and it was delicious, the salad was fresh and tasty. The serving staff were super friendly and helpful. The negatives: we felt a bit awkward when we...arrived as we didn’t realise this place was part of a resort when we decided to head there, let alone an adults-only resort. The waitress was very kind and allowed us to stay for lunch with our kids but some sort of mention of this beforehand (e.g at the signage on the street, or on this listing) would have saved a lot of awkwardness.More

We only had a main course and a cocktail, so didn't take advantage of the $60 pp three course offer as it seemed like too much food. The food was nice, but the menu did not state that there was cream in the risooto and...I was very ill later that night. Thought it was rather over priced for what was provided.More

We enjoyed two meals at this casual on the beach restaurant. Perfect to watch the sunset and enjoy well priced good food and lovely service. The beef was excellent and the prawn main very good. Huge portions and not a bad wine list for a...remote island.More

Great food, cool location. We had a group of 7 and all enjoyed our meals. The rare beef started and the ceviche were very popular. The beef main and grilled fish were also very good. The desserts were probably the only dish that wasnt excellent....The cocktails and drinks were also very good. It isnt super easy to navigate through the hotel in the dark at night to get to the restaurant but otherwise its awesome.More

We enjoyed a beautiful fresh fish lunch at OTB with a chilled Cooks Lager, on a beach table watching the waves. It was utterly perfect, so much so we came back for a final nights dinner. At the same table on the beach we watched...the sun go down with a delicious Jules Taylor Sauvignon then proceeded ‘inside’ (not really inside..open air dining at its best) for our delicious meals. Fresh Mahi Mahi and King Prawns. Both served with classic French style sauces but with a twist of the tropics. Service was gracious, friendly, professional and relaxed all at the same time. Nailed it OTB. Can’t wait to return!More

We had booked elsewhere for our lastnight however due to covid the restaurant was closed... So we decided to come here and it did NOT disappoint. We got the 3 course deal. I cannot fault any of the 6 dishes we tried. We had ika...mata, prawn salad for entrees, eye fillet (cooked to perfection) and melting in the mouth, fish on risotto (also melting in the mouth), for dessert panecotta & chocolate dessert. All was wonderful.More
