We made a booking for lunch but my husband had to change his singlet due to dress rules for visitors which was fair enough. The atmosphere was very calming and they made us feel welcome. The food was delicious and the views are amazing.

This was walking distance to our lodging (Paradise Cove) so we went several times. Each time we had a good experience. It's clearly a very fancy, expensive resort and the restaurant reflects that. But the food was very, very good. Desserts were also wonderful. You don't often find truly good chocolate or chocolate dishes in tropical locations in my experience,... More

Maybe this is not the real Aitutaki but is without a doubt worth a visit. Great food (especially the Ita Mata) and service. Greta views out over the lagoon and a pleasant visit!

We were staying at Paradise Cove for our honeymoon but came here a couple of times for dinner. As guests at another hotel we were allowed to eat at the downstairs restaurant, and managed to do so without a reservation. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the view was lovely of the pool and out over the tropical gardens and... More
