“Great environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Food was about what you would expect for the price & is delicious but not life changing. Beautiful place to stop for a beer, but so is the rest of aitutaki. Would recommend if close by

“Great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

Great location, good selection of food and beveridges. East side of the Island catches the cool easterly breeze. Interesting shipping, fishing and flying history covers the walls of this cool place.

“A bit disappointed after other reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We came here after it was recommended to us by other people staying at our resort. Just a bit baffled really. This place reveiws really well, apart from the occasional bad one and I'm wondering if its a Sunday thing and they operate on skeleton staff. The place wasn't busy when we arrived, there were three people behind the bar and none of them acknowledge us. We sat and waited, then someone wondered over and we got a very short-'you eating?' from them. We ordered, service was terse and the meals all very average and then on leaving it took three staff members to figure out the credit card/eftpos machine. Guessing maybe they just having a bad day - would return just out of curiosity!

“Great Location,Great Value, Good Food and Nice Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Back at Aitutaki for a 2nd time and had to take the family back to the Boatshed for Dinner. Very laid back with a varied menu with an Island - Indonesion influence. Good sized meals, Good salads, good service. One of the great places to eat on the Island
