“Great Food & Great hosts”
Reviewed October 7, 2010

The food is great & sitting outside with the sand between your toes is beautiful.
We had 3 meals all were excellent. Cameron & the staff are doing a great job, we have already made a booking for our return in March. The fish in all our meals was extremely fresh. you have to go & try it.

“Great Meal, Friendly, Relaxed Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 3, 2010

We had a great meal at Vaima.
I had Garlic Prawns as an entree & Lamb Filet as a main & my other half had Seafood Chowder & Rib Eye Steak with Mushroom Sauce. Both entrees were delicious & the lamb & steak were cooked just as requested.
We felt that the prices were reasonable & represented value for money.
The only criticism I have is that the service at Vaima was a little too efficient. We received our entrees before we had finished our pre dinner cocktail, then received our mains just 10 mins after we had finished our entrees & before we had received our wine.

“Friendly Service, Great Food, Sand between the toes - perfect!”
Reviewed October 1, 2010

What a wonderful find. Cameron and Dot are the perfect hosts and the food and service were both excellent. We visited Roratonga on our honeymoon after getting married in Fiji and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Vaima, we went there 3 nights. Cameron and Dot provide a taxi service, which is brilliant if you don't wish to drive. Cameron has a good selection of wines and the fish curry is superb, as is the butter chicken! The décor is attractive, as Dot as added some stylish touches. There is also a good size bar area where you can happily spend a few hours watching the rugby. They have entertainment on some nights, which is well worth a visit. We listened to a beautiful female vocalist, whilst dining with the sand between our toes - perfect! So if you're visiting Roratonga, Vaime is a must visit for friendly service, excellent food, and great atmosphere.
