We went to LBV twice and had the Brownies both times, thwy are the best brownies we have ever tasted. The service was friendly and the waitress was keen to have a chat.

Also the proudest Rooster on on Island struts around the place like he owns it.

Great art hanging on the walls as well.

We ate here for dinner after we tried some of the baking that these guys were selling at the Saturday morning markets. So good we ended up having lunch and breakfast here before the end of our stay as well.

Breakfast/lunch is proper French boulangerie/patisserie stuff - bread/filled rolls/sandwiches/cakes /slices/doughnuts in the cabinets, and a small à la carte menu. It's tasty. Service seemed pretty good.

Dinner was fine-dining style, and was really good. We had gotten used to Rarotongan places having to make do with the limited range of produce/supplies on the island, but these guys somehow manage to make big-city-style food that I'd have been happy with anywhere.

Service was really good. They found insect repellent for us after we'd forgotten to put it on before arriving, and when they didn't have our preferred wine in stock, they opened an alternative not-usually-sold-by-the-glass one for us to have instead. Water glasses were kept full.

Probably more of a couples place than a family place at dinner time.

It's the best place we found to eat on Rarotonga. Worth a visit.

We ate dinner here and it was absolutely delicious. Yes the service was a really slow, but we appreciated the chance to linger on the outdoor patio which had a great ambience. This is a great place for a romantic meal, but I would probably think carefully before I brought kids here for dinner. The patient wait for such creative cuisine and with such fresh seafood was worth it for us. At any other time of the day though this a great place for all ages and its popularity was evident by the constant crowd inside and sprawling across the lawn during the day.

We didn't dine in, but absolutely loved the doughnuts and croissants purchased on an almost daily basis - yes, they were that good. Quite pricey, but the friendly smiles and efficient service compensated and the sizes are generous. In a word YUM - highly recommend.
