We wanted a lighter dinner and stopped here after seeing their pizza sign. The pizza was only available until 7pm and we snuck in just under the deadline. There were not a lot of options but the Hawaiian was a solid choice.

We ate at the Sands a couple of times during our visit. Friendly staff and good to have a laugh with. Plenty of choices on the menu. The local pork roll was my favorite and also loved the spaghetti carbonara.

Best food on Raro without a doubt. Ate here every one of the 4 nights on the island. The Chicken curry dish and the fish curry dish are the best on the island! Do not miss this simple but very nice restaurant!

We really enjoyed our meal here - the chef was kind enough to make a vegetarian curry for one of our group, and we loved the pizzas. Nice casual relaxed dining with yummy food.

This was our second visit to Rarotonga & our third to Sands. When we saw the menu we were both a bit underwhelmed, to be honest. In the end, my husband had the chicken & I had the pork belly, which was actually an entree,...More

I wouldn't rave about the food here but it wasn't too bad and not too expensive. My wife and I shared a chicken curry ($24) and a Hawaiian pizza ($20). They had tables and seating out on the beach front but we were told they...More
