The Mooring is a great spot and delicious sandwiches... Not normally a fish sandwich lover but love theirs! They also offer other menu items other than fish. Definitely filling the staff is friendly, just a great place to go for lunch. Love how they made the kitchen out of a cargo container. Try it I would be interested to know your thoughts on the place.

Just because we ate there 4 times in 7 days!! And always the same dish FOB or Fish on Burger soooo yummyyyyy. So pleased to enjoy this dish that didn't adventure anything else. Fish of choice? Tuna was great but after trying Mahi Mahi you will never change for anything else.

First word: Fresh. This is some of the freshest fish I have ever had — absolutely beautiful mahi mahi and tuna. The salads are enormous, with a hearty serving of fish on top and the sandwiches are jam-packed with meat. Not only is the fish amazing, but the bread is fluffy and the sauces create the perfect marriage of meat, carb, lettuce and tomato. These guys had just won another tourism award from Air New Zealand while we were there, and boy, do they deserve it!

What can you say about this place?! Located in an isolated spot on the south east part of the island, this place is essentially a metal shack serving the most delicious lunches! We did not actually know about this place before going to Rarotonga, however during our 10 night stay at the Pacific Resort the staff advised us to go there. Best piece of advice on the whole holiday! I understand the fish is all freshly caught by the husband in the morning and served up by the wife during the day. As has already been mentioned loads of times by other reviewers, it is all about the FOB!!! WOW! You literally sit at this place, the sun is shining, freshly cooked fish on your plate and you forget about the whole world. Incredible!
