“Yummy burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Value for money this place rocks......and of course its something all the locals already know. They go there in droves.

“The Palace - Great burgers - Great fish & chips”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

The locals said this was the best place on Rarotonga for burgers and fish and chips. They were right. We had both there and both the burgers and the fish & chips were better than the burgers and fish and chips we'd had at several upmarket resorts. At around $5 NZ for a burger ($14-$19 in resorts) and around $7NZ for a piece of fish and chips ($20-$32 in resorts - The Palace won hands down for flavour and value. Sitting at the tables and eating out of paper, surrounded by locals also added to the experience. The food took a while to be cooked, probably due to the place being very busy with lots of locals placing orders. But once you've been in Rarotonga a few days, you adjust to island Time - things happen when they happen.NOTE - if you order fish and chips in Rarotonga - a lot of the hotels dish up battered deep fried tuna which is too dry and the wrong kind of fish for fish and chips. The Palace uses nice fresh moist fleshy reef fish fillets.
