“Friendly service, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Visited once for lunch and was greeted by a very friendly lady at the entrance.

Meal prices were a bit high but the food was quite good, especially appreciated a glass of cold water with a lime.

There's a lovely view of the pool and the beach from the restaurant.

“Best Restaurant we tried in Rarotonga”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We wanted to have lunch when we were on the beach but we were afraid to get the same disappointment with the food as we got in the previous restaurant but this one probed us wrong, we order the sizzling seafood plate and fish a cheap and not only the waitress was very nice (she is from Philippines) the place was beautiful and the food was excellent, the restaurant is set near the beach and also they allowed us to use the swimming pool. We tried on the last day what a shame but we will go back if we have the opportunity

“Nice place for cocktails”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We ventured here a couple of times. Food very very average and expensive for what we got. Nice piña coladas and lovely wait staff stunning setting but the food really let's it down! Could be a winner if the kitchen got it right

“40th Birthday dinner”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We were picked up by Vicky the Manager! When we arrived we were greeted with friendly staff...and amazing surroundings. Sitting by the pool watching the sun setting, followed with a great meal! Invited back the next day to swim in the pool and view the villas. Many thanks to the LP team we had a great time
