“best food on Rarotonga”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

This place has the best food on Rarotonga. Went there for my 50th birthday party with friends, the steak was epic. Be prepared to book ahead. It's a bit out of the way on the opposite side of the island from most of the other tourist stuff but worth the trip.

“Great Food”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

The owner picked us up and dropped us back all free of charge and we learnt a lot of local info from her thanks Cathy, the food was lovely there was a band which played great music and the restaurant was really busy with lovely friendly waiting staff. The Wontons were delicious and this place also cooked the fish we had caught that day which was awesome thanks again for a wonderful night.

“Great restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Went here twice and had a wonderful meal each time. There was also entertainment, Great atmosphere as the restaurant has big shutters which open out and there is no glass windows, nice on a steamy tropical night. Highly recommended.
