The food here was a plesent surprise, especially the fish and chips which were yellow fin tuna, yummmmmm. I also had a burger which was very nice. They have a limited alcohol list, but what they have is good enough and reasonably priced. The choice for dinner was very good, cooked fresh and large portions.

They have the best ones on island. The other visitors came from their hotels just to try it out. You should too!

Very good food, and lots of it. Great variety, from local seafood, to enchiladas and chicken ranch wrap. Very good breakfast, loved the stuffed French toast.

driving to this place is fun...if you are not familiar of the place you will not realize that there is a good place to eat lunch... not so many people but still service is slow... but you get freshly caught fish on their menu and fresh coconut juice as well...

I loved coming here as a Peace Corps volunteer. I was cut off during most of my stay, and used to come here for Corona and lunch every time I came in. It is rare for a local run restaurant on this island to meet my standards, but this one did.

When you order from the menu and it says "2 egg breakfast" and you get served only 1 egg???? something is really wrong. When... More

I have been to this restaurant many times, for lunch and also for dinner, especially when I wanted to have thin-crust-pizza. I have already reviewed the restaurant a couple of times, under the name Cliff Rainbow restaurant. Although the restaurant is not very far from the lagoon, there is no direct view of the water from the restaurant outside or... More

The outdoor dining area is beautiful and relaxing. The grilled fish is delicious, plus if you are lucky you might glimpse the president of the FSM since he/his family owns the place.

In the 3 times I visited Pohnpei, I stayed at Cliff's hotel restaurant twice and ate lunch and dinner there very often My favorite is the Tuna Sashimi with rice. Great taste and great value!
