Description: The exclusive, romantic and private restaurant venue on the island with delicious and world-renowned Pacific cuisine. Away from the crowds and the public eye, a fine dining evening with your loved ones or a wedding at Tamarind House is an extra special experience. Whether your requirements are large or small, we are eager to accommodate you with an event that you will long remember. Tamarind House is a versatile venue offering five different areas to suit any occasion. Tamarind House Restaurant on the island of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands is situated on a large oceanfront property, with it's stately beautifully restored historic colonial house, huge verandas and french doors, and a lovely garden shaded by coconut palms and green lawns sweeping down to the ocean. It is just a 3 minute drive from the town centre, and the round the island bus stops just by the entrance. You can enjoy a feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era in the peaceful seclusion of our truly unique tropical setting..

We had our wedding dinner here. It was one of the highlights of our wedding day. The staff were just so lovely and kind, and really made us feel special on our wedding day. The waiters offered to take photos of us and the food was just the best. I was just so glad that someone recommended this place because it was perfect for a wedding dinner. Amazingly the prices were really reasonable too.

Very fancy place. View is gorgeous at night with lights. I had such high expectation, but food was average for the price we were paying. Staffs were friendly, but forgot to get a right order.

This resturant has to be one of the best on the island. Delicious food, very good service and a stunning outlook all make for a special meal experience. The house opens out onto the garden and at night the lights add to the ambience.

We had two beautiful meals (1 x lunch, 1 x dinner) at Tamarind and we loved it. Delicious food, good service, great lagoon-side setting. We'd thoroughly recommend it.
