“The best fish sandwiches”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The fish is caught fresh each day and cooked while you sit by the waterside. Definitely worth a visit!

Fresh fish for lunch, expertly prepared and served with a lovely friendly smile. Dine infront of one of The most awesome and magnificent lagoon/ Harbour right in front of you. Jill and co offers great service. All meals are absolutely mmmwwwaaaahh. Go on then, jot that on your list as well. You will thank me for that. Sorry friends, no bar. Bring your own wine.

“Best Lunch Ever”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

This would have to be the best food on Raro..the first time we went there I had the Mui Mui fish and hubby had the CLT while we sat by the water....It was the best meal I have had in all my visits to Raro..I couldnt wait to get back and have the fish again.. This little restaurant is so worth a visit and I could eat there every day. You will not be able to have just one visit..

“Best thing for a hangover - a niu [fresh chilled baby coconut]”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Popped in here on our last day and wished we'd come EVERYDAY for lunch. My sister had a gorgeous piece of mahimahi and partner had a tuna steak. Fresh as, beautiful bread, excellent prices and wonderful service. Was under the weather that day so only had a coconut - none the less get here for a scrummy lunch!
