We started driving around Raro looking for something to eat. Came across the Flying Boat, tucked in next to a fishing club. Don't expect anything fancy but it was good honest fish and chips. Very nice and perfect for relaxed day in the Cook Islands.

A lovely spot to stop for lunch... the view and sounds of the crashing waves is relaxing! Food was ok here and not too expensive.

Excellent burgers and chips from the Flying Boat, a great location beside the water with the option to get a drink from the Game Fishing Club and sit undercover. Really friendly helpful staff. Don’t miss out, these burgers are fantastic!!

Loved the fish & chips served in a basket to be eaten overlooking the water. Dig in and eat with your fingers and enjoy the sound of the ocean.
