“Superb!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The mouthwatering F.O.B. sandwich is so divine it just melts in your mouth!! You have to visit the Mooring for a mahimahi sandwich. This was on our to-do list since we read all the positive reviews on this site. It made our holiday more memorable. Thank you ladies for the katakatas and korero whilst we devoured our mahimahi sandwiches and smoothie. Forever grateful. Now can we start a franchise around the world?

“OMG. The best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

I wanted to go there for lunch ever day and the smoothies are to die for. I will miss my regular laughs with ladies. We even had someone pick up food to deliver to us whilst getting ready for my son's wedding. I wonder if they could deliver to my home address?

In short... Ika Mata = WINNER, Sandwiches = WINNER!!! Our band Tomorrow People went there, and they made a special batch of Ika Mata especially for us! Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Raro.

“You Have to Have Lunch at The Mooring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We went to the Mooring for lunch on the recommendation of a friend and it was everything they said it would be ..
The cafe is built close to the water in a 40ft shipping container. They sell a range of fish sandwiches and a few other items for the non-fish eaters.
Service is great and the food is magnificent.
If you think you have had a fish sandwich before, think again.. Everything is so fresh and the range of locally caught fish and accompaniments is great ..
No visit to Raro would be complete without eating at The Morring ..
