Not being a seafood eater I had not visited this restaurant - except for pre-dinner drinks. We couldn't find anywhere open one Sunday and ended up having lunch in the restaurant. We were seated looking out over the harbour and reef. The food was acceptable (burger and sandwich) and we had a lovely time watching the activity in the water right below where we were sitting. Very friendly staff.

The food was some of the best we had on Rarotonga, the setting for the restaurant was great over looking the water. Unfortunately we found this restaurant very unaccommodating for children. There were no high chairs. The staff were quite rude and the meal took about an hour. Great for a couple or group of people travelling without children, the wait would be worth the lovely meals. If you are travelling with children, I would skip it and go elsewhere.

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.
