Description: We are situated right on the beach. Imagine sitting on the beach with the sun setting, sipping your favourite cocktail and enjoying some of the best cuisine on the island - how romantic! We also offer a pizza take away service - forget the cooking - enjoy our pizza in your room/hotel or just sit on the beach with your feet in the water enjoying the food. We can cater for small private functions and weddings. Look forward to seeing you at the Vaima. We recommend that families book between 5.30 and 6.30 pm.

Loved walking down the beach from Palm Grove for outdoor meal. Loved the yellow seafood curry. Husband's wahoo a bit bland but lots of interesting items on the menu. Best to reserve- several friends arrived without and though the restaurant was almost empty, the hostess told them they should have reserved and took her time to seat them. Power trip? or their need to paln staffing?

Always great food standard. Staff also very professional yet friendly. I always recommend Vaima to friends and family visiting rarotonga. The setting is beautiful, but make sure you make a reservation first asking for a nice table feet in the sand. Go for early dinner to catch the beautiful sunset too!

Great food , good prices , pork belly to dye for , only thing was the ants on the tables (tables on the sand above high tide mark ). We went twice and would go again any time.

My husband & I went to Vaima on our first night in Rarotonga. He ordered the seafood curry and said it was good; I ordered the Fish special of the day, which happened to be Wahoo. My fish was severely overcooked, which I thought was odd. You would think a restaurant on a tropical island would specialize in fish . . .
With drinks, our bill was $84.00. I guess the nice thing about this restaurant is that they offer transfer from your accommodations to the restaurant and back. Personally, I would probably not give them another try, unless to try their pizza.
