Rarotonga’s best hamburger is on Muri Beach, but only before 5pm! Kai Kai Time is a café and grill on the main island road, and you can’t miss their signage. There is open air seating at community tables or smaller individual tables, and a West Pac ATM is conveniently located next door.

The Big Bite burger is a monstrous two patty beef burger, featuring a fried egg, a generous helping of gooey melted cheese, bacon, beetroot, lettuce, and special sauce. It is a little pricey at about $11, but I found this to be a great value considering the epic size. Pair it with gigantic hot and salty chips and you’re up to about $16 for an enormous meal that will keep you going all day long. There are, of course, regular sized burgers for the less gluttonous, but you’re on vacation!

Remember that you’re on island time now, and Kai Kai Time is only open for about 6 hours a day. It’s well worth it to stop by.

Awesome food, huge meals, excellent value for money too. Just round the corner from a perfect beach and then finish off with a meal. Great service, friendly owner operator, (Gayle). Well recommended.

A fruit drink start to a late lunch, followed by bananas picked off the bunch on the tree next to you. The vista up towards the mountain of Te Kou is jaw dropping.

Located at Muri Beach, right next to Sails Restaurant and Bar and Captain Tama's Harbour Tours is Kai Kai Time. If you have partied too hard the night before then try their Ika Mata (raw fish) for something cool and refreshing or the Smoked Fish Melts (toasted sanwhich with smoked fish, cheese and tomotoe) to perk you up and get you moving. The food is fresh, the place is spotless. All Kiwi's holidaying in Rarotonga must pop in , the owner Gayle is a Kiwi and her partner Tom is Rarotongan. You will welcomed with a smile.
PS If you want to know anything about the Island then ask Gayle, she is a mine of information.
A big thumbs up for Kai Kai Time
