A great jumbalaya - quite a kick. Unfortunately the prawns in the Cooks are always imported and frozen so as long as you are aware that it's OK. The fish was apparently wonderful. The fish sliders as an entree were the highlight - crispy and fresh. Nice to look on to the water. Mid range pricing.

We had heard that Trader Jacks was a Rarotongan tradition - and we're glad that we visited! Cheap, good food with friendly staff and a great spot in Avarua.

Worth a visit but nothing special. The location is on the seaside but is similar to most of Raratonga.
I had a very nice lobster salad at a relatively cheap price but my wife's curry was average.
