Went for lunch with the family and had very good fish burgers (tried the Mahi Mahi and also the tuna burgers). One thing to possibly note is that the tuna steaks are cooked to perfection so people who prefer red meat cooked "well done" may...More

Made it back for a second visit during our stay! The tuna tacos were delish, loved the papaya salsa and the cook very kindly made them gluten free by serving in lettuce cups. Great outdoor, picnic style dining. Great for a casual lunch while driving...More

Our fish sandwiches were absolutely delicious. I can't believe it has taken me this long to discover The Mooring, will be back next time. There were a few mosquitoes though, so make sure to spray on some DEET.

The Mooring is a casual dining venue with only outdoor seating right on the water. Our favourite is the FOB which is fish on a bun. The fish is always fresh and is served on a huge bun. One sandwich is all my wife and...More

Fish sandwich is fantastic the fish you eat here was swimming just prior to hitting the bread! We ate here three times over the course of our stay on Rarotonga. Staff was extremely freindly and they went out of their way for us. Great place...More

We were in Rarotonga in 2012 and had the FOB (Fresh off Boat) at the Mooring. This is a great fish sandwich on turkish bread, with tomato and lettuce. During this visit we went 4 times and each time had the FOB. The fish is...More

Hi MurphyNZ, Try contacting the restaurant directly. Remember though that Mooring always closes at 3pm, even on the days they are open.

Honestly, mate, I eat everything, so gluten-free isn't a concern of mine. I'd check out their menu online. Hopefully you're headed to the lovely Cook Islands, soon.
