Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nearly everything is closed on Sundays on Aitutaki, and finding a place for dinner can be a challenge unless you opt for the high end resort restaurants. We had already tried those, then stumbled upon this humble little cafe, and had a fantastic meal with some of the friendliest service we encountered on the island. A good selection of simple food prepared well and served with a laugh and a smile. You are also supporting local people, which is a plus as well. Stop by, you won't regret it!

We patroned the Tavake Café during our stay in Aitutaki. We had the fried rice with chicken/beef/prawns on it and the chicken satay meal. The fried rice was decently prepared to emulate Indonesian style and filling as well. Both portions were generous and we had to bring back half as leftovers. We would have wished the satay had peanut sauce on it for a more authentic flavor, but it did have sweet soy sauce on it. We wished we would have had an opportunity to try other things on the menu as they looked interesting. They also have a small shop with souvenirs, food and random stuff which was cool. Overall, a great first meal and we would recommend Tavake Café as a place to check out. Please indicate if you found this review to be helpful as it would be greatly appreciated!

Friendly service, deliciously portioned food with a nice breeze and great view of the beach. Came back most days for the cold milkshakes and iced coffees.

highly recommend this small but beautiful cafe. Can say my dad and brother were here basically every day for beverages more specifically the coffee. Heard other good things about the cafe from family who live in aitutaki. Not only have we been here for the beverages but the breakfast and dinner too and the food was beautiful and made with love. Served warm to hot at decent prices. And the staff are lovely and welcoming! Keep it up Tavake.

Decided to go for a random drive and give Tavake Cafe a try, we received great service from the young lady who serviced us and they were a busy little spot! There was a big range to choose from and the prices ranged but weren’t too bad. I had a tropical smoothie which was filled to the brim and heavy and really refreshing and yum. My partner had the boss burger and some fries and he really enjoyed it. We also ordered a takeaway meal to have for dinner which was a chicken and egg noodle meal which was packed with flavour. Good little stop to give a try.

Takeaway meal excellent & combination meal with fries supplied with tomato sauce plus separate rice enough to feed 4 not 2 people. Can highly recommend exceeding all expectations.

Food was terrible. We spent over $100 on food for takeout. We got back to our air BnB opened it to eat and boy did we waste our money. The food was not even meat? My stir fry tasted off. Had a weird smell. Had one bite of our food and biffed the rest. Do not recommend. Go to Avatea Cafe. I have enjoyed every meal I have had from there. I noticed the good reviews are because a man was the chef before. The chef we had is a female. Don’t come here.

I stopped at this cafe for lunch as I was passing and thought it looked inviting. Perfect location on the main road with views down to the reef. I had the fish burger and it is one of the best burgers I’ve ever had. It was perfect. The chef was so happy and friendly and you can tell he cooks with love!

We stopped here to have some lunch one day during our stay on Aitutaki. This little cafe is a very pleasant surprise. We both had Ika Mata and were delighted with our extremely fresh, tasty and generous portions. Absolutely delicious! Highly recommended.
