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..

Another recommendation from a friend. The seafood platter for two was just amazing. Plenty to try and my oh my it was delicious. Also my all time favourite dessert Creme brulee was fantastic. A must visit for all to experience. Open for lunches and evening meals.

I always love coming here when in Rarotonga. I would definitely recommend as a place to visit for lunch due to the beautiful outlook. Request to sit on the verandah part of the restaurant. Personal favourites here are the fish curry and the sticky date pudding.

We went there for a wedding reception and it was absolutely stunning. The way the hall was set up, simple and elogant, the beach scenery, stunning, the staff, professional and helpful, the ambiance of it all was top class, a very fitting venue which was very intimate. The food was plentiful and very inviting, the caterers were very skilled. Well done Tamarind House, would definitely visit again...
