After finding out Trader Jacks was closed on a sunday we headed to Bamboo Jacks for dinner. The food was good however i was very disappointed with the service where im sure they forgot our order. Someone asked the waitress where out entree was as it had been at least 30mins and everyone who had arrived after us had already been served. Our wine glasses were left empty, it wasn't until they came to clear our table of the mains that they asked if we wanted more drinks. There was also a mix up of the wine glasses where a waitress brought a glass of wine to our table where we had not ordered it then it was billed to our table
at the end. When paying the bill we mentioned to the male staff memeber that we had waited a long time for entrees and he was very rude, stating that we had "made our point" we also mentioned that they had overcharged us a glass of wine through which he said " which waitress was it ?? I need to ask them about it" !So rude and will never go back there again!!!!

First time to Bamboo jacks and was not disappointed. A very night hot night so sat out in the covered outer area which was very pleasant. The food was very good and extremely well priced.
For three people including entrees and drinks cost $101 NZD.
Will go back next time.

This is one of our favourite places to eat in Rarotonga. However if you like your food spicy don't be afraid to tell the waitress or it might come out milder than you expect. Other than that, delicious food and good service.

The food was very good, a nice surprise; coming in the back door we did not know what to expect. It was a little hot to sit outside but once the food came all was forgotten. Only drawback was they did not have Matutu local beer.

Love the food,decor and service. Easy going and of course the casual ambiance of the Cook Islands. Lots to choose from and very yummy, authentic flavours and great cocktails. Sixties style bar and spacious dining space room and outdoor like dining as well. Booths for four or romantic couples. :) Loud but fun night. Will go on our next trip there!
