Average and expensive. Don't get the pizzas very oily and heavy on cheese. On three occasions there was a long wait. More than an hour. On one instant we were refunded. The restaurant was not busy either.

Came in for dinner and we were pointed to an area to pick a table. Took a long time for orders to be taken and even longer to get the drinks and food (15 minutes for a lemonade when the place was barely 1/4 full is a bit excessive.) Wait staff seemed disinterested and it was very hard to get... More

Not enough staff on so service is slow. Food is good. Drinks are standard island prices. Great view sitting on the deck.

Only really like the eye fillet steak which was fantastic. We didn't enjoy the fish meals and the curry was bland no spice and wasn't seasoned.

We stayed at the resort and can highly recommend the cocktails (especially cocktail hour) and the fabulous food that kept coming out of the kitchen. Cocktails became a daily event and the wedges and sour cream were a great poolside snack. I thoroughly enjoyed the Tropical Chicken and the Steak & Prawns. The Staff couldn't do enough for you. No...

We enjoyed cocktails at the Rarotongan Resort earlier this week. We weren't resident there, but stopped by for drinks one evening around sundown. We enjoyed sitting out in a shelter that was enclosed on three sides, with the fourth side open to allow views over the ocean and lagoon. It afforded us some privacy and shelter from the sun, but...

Enjoyed the food here, was pretty reasonably priced (between $20-$30 for most meals) Didn't find "Island time" to be an issue, food came pretty quickly, never felt like there was a huge wait, and view is amazing!
