“Best Take Aways in Raro”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

This little take away near the main harbour entrance, has just got to be the best deal in town. Favoured by the locals and tourists alike, it is certainly a mecca for people seeking value for money. They have a wide range of burgers, great seafood and salads. One thing that does impact negatively on this establishment, is the state of the tables outside. They are very grubby, with years of grime built up on them. If you are a bit squemish about this, there is always the take away option.
Don't forget the wednesday 08h00 to 20h00 half price burger deal. All burgers on the specials board at NZ$3.50

“$3.50 Wednesday - gotta be good.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Could not resist the Wednesday special, wonderful fresh cheese burger with crunchy lettuce salad and a large meat patty. The place was packed but the service was friendly and fast. Highly recommend, they were always busy with service with a smile.

“My favourite dinner!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

We love to have a Palace Burger for dinner and watch the sun disappear over the water. They are huge but perfect for a filling dinner. The coleslaw is delicious and sweet and matches perfectly with salty bacon, cheese and meat patties. Fight the chooks for your burger - it's worth it!

“Value for money”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

The burgers were great, the service was quick and value for money you cannot complain. We had a burger at the Edgewater Resort which was smaller and not as nice for double the price. Definitely eat here with the locals. If you are planning on trying to eat the Palace burger bring wet wipes and a strong stomach as it is the size of your head. The steak burger uses really nice quality meat and was just the right size.

If you head in on a Wednesday they have burger happy hour with a selection of burgers only $3.50 each, you can't get better than that.
