Description: Tamanu beach has a beachside 60 seat Bar & Restaurant. We are open for breakfast lunch and dinner with a simple Island style menu. Our feature Island Nights every Thursday are a highlight of Aitutaki dining. Sunday is a relaxed family bbq buffet. The specials menu changes regularly with the freshest catch and seasonal fruits. We do pretty good coffee (getting better every day!) and our sunset cocktails are very tempting.

“Great Buffet”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This resort has a great island night buffet, we have been going to Aitutaki since 2007 and I think that consistently Tamanu has offered great food at a competitive resort rate.

“Beautiful breakfast and bbq dinner”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

woke up every morning with a no fuss buffet breakfast that boasted a lot of fresh fruit of Aitutaki. The staff were very attentative and we even seemed to have our very own table for our entire stay. The Sunday BBQ was tasty and had a good variety of food available. Staff even gave us ice every time we asked, and it was a lot for our stay. View of the sea was breathtaking for the moment. Meitaki Maata to the staff, enjoyed it immensley!!

“our wedding dinner”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Eloped in paradise for our wedding we decided to have dinner on our wedding night at Tamanu Restaurant on the Thursday of their show.
We really enjoy the buffet, between the raw fish and the pork i culdn't choose, they were both very tasty. The show was great, not only the dancers but the drumming was awesome. service also very good and prompt. Lovely setting directly by the beach (everything pretty much on this island is by the beach).

“Great food and nice setting”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The restaurant is nicely set directly on the beach and you have a nice view of the sunset whilst having dinner.
The menue is not very big, but the selection is sufficient and the food is very good. Service was good as well.
I would definetly recommed the place, if you'd like to have a nice dinner.
