My partner and I had tried the Little Polynesian Restaurant a few years back as their had been huge reviews on Getaway (travel show) about this place. That experience a few years ago was horrible - terrible service and even worse food - we could not understand what all the hype was about, when it was so bad.
This trip around we had heard that Pacific Resort had come on board and that the Little Polynesian was now part of the Pacific Resort Group - We had experienced Pacific Resort both in Raro and Aitutaki and had some great stays and food - Therefore we thought it time to give the Little Polynesian Restaurant a second chance.
I have to say, we are so glad we did. My partner and I ended up dining here 3 times during our stay in Raro.
All times were for dinner, dessert and a sneaky cocktail.
The staff were always so friendly, on our return visits for dinner (for the 2nd and 3rd time) the staff had remembered our names and the whole time would refer to us by name. It was like we were old friends. This was so nice.
And WOW - the food was just divine. Beautiful flavours and always so fresh. There is a good variety on the menu - something for everyone.
And you all must try at least one of their desserts or be cheeky and share two !!
A Big Thank you to the beautiful night staff at the Little Polynesian Restaurant
