our party of seven has just returned from Rarotonga and we ate at several restaurants.Our ratings are : 1) Waterline.....the Mahi Mahi was to die for. Beachfront and we went twice.
2)Vaima ........right on the beach front tables. friendly service and great food.
3) Kik Hau Hut......great service and good food. Mahi Mahi was different presentation to Waterline but was fresh fruity tasting and Benouffi pie for dessert.
4) Shipwreck Bar.......right on the beach. Great bar with cocktails in a jam jar ! Bloody Mary's and margarita's are fantastic with live music and Jim's humour. A must .
5) Trader Jack's....I went to Trader Jack's exactly 1 year ago and experienced fantastic seafood meals and presentation to the point we took a photo of our meals. One year later we took our party of 7 there because we said it was great.....well it wasnt.....worse food we experienced on our trip. My potato mash had lumps, the Mahi Mahi (??) tasted strong and lettuce limp. My wife's Cook Island platter was good. The place seemed tired of tourists. The
location is excellent waterside viewing. Would I return next year...???
