“smoothies”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Her indoors and myself ate here twice in July,it was pretty good,nice staff-eating is a tourist activity in Rarotonga .Whatever you do while visiting,go here and get a smoothy-you won't be sorry.Wish i was having one now-have to go back soon.
The rocks of the Canoes that headed for NZ are round the corner,and the surf is quite spectacular.

“Fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Our first outing we were hungry and walked to this place. The fish was so fresh. Had the fish sandwich and my husband had the tuna. We came here a couple of other times but the were either out of the fish or closed :(

“The Mooring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a week in Rarotonga and happened to come across this place to eat. I'm not a fish person but we found ourselves going back each day for lunch. Absolutely beautifully cooked. Smoothies to die for also..

“Fresh off the Boat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

On an island like Raro that has so many places to eat and you want to try them all, its not often that you return to the same place not twice but three times in a week.

The FOB is amazing. Captain Moko goes out and catches the fish and Gill cooks it up. Freshly crumbed mahi mahi served on fresh focaccia bread.
Gill was so friendly and recognised us on our second and third visits. Service is quick and the view is awesome.
