We stopped here only cause it was one of the few places that we had heard of. It had more of a casual beer drinkers atmosphere but we got a table in the shade right on the wharf edge and it was lovely after a hard day trawling the Saturday market. Nice reasonably priced drinks (They even stock Speights!) and resonable bar snacks. We got a couple of small pizzas and some chips to share between three of us. Nothing amazing but nice and no complaints. It looked like it might get a bit rogue in the evenings but for a casual lunch by the sea, it was great.

We visited Trader Jacks twice while in the Cook Islands in June, both times with our 4 year old son. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food comes out fast - always a bonus with a child.
The menu has a great range of options and we'd highly recommend the seafood platter, when available. It had something for everyone and between the three of us was perfect, with just enough room for a desert after :)
