I ordered the steak with veggies and chips but minus the steak, as I’m vegetarian. The waiter ensured I was charged fairly due to the changes to the meal and I was soon presented with a gigantic plate with every sort of vegetable imaginable, along with chips and mushroom sauce. Often at restaurants, if you ask for meat to be removed from the meal, you get a pile of lettuce and a few chips, so it was awesome to see staff going above and beyond to ensure I had a delicious meatless meal!

I can't rate this restaurant highly enough! We ate here multiple times during our recent trip to Rarotonga and it was consistently great every time! The food was delicious (and very reasonably priced) and the staff was always friendly. Also right on the beach with live music almost every night! It's an awesome place for a casual meal or just hang out with a couple of drinks.
My only suggestion is they start serving breakfast! ☺️

Really liked this place. It was a popular wee place overlooking the water. The sandwich my partner got was huge - he loved it. I had a bounty bar milkshake which was so good - highly recommend it. Thanks!

Our group had a 2 course meal in February. All the servings were extra large, and many of us took half of our meal home for later. Fish was nicely grilled, along with chips and a fresh salad. Chocolate cake portions were very large, but delicious.

The day we dined, the breeze was a northerly making the seated area hot and confined. Best to visit when the prevailing trade winds are blowing, if possible, for a summer time visit.

Engaging singing by Charlie and Varani at our occassion. Thank you Mary for being a supreme hostess as always.

First night we had dinner here- yummy but we also really enjoyed the live music, the people the evening.
Then we went back for lunch few days later - amazing once again, great food great people and m love the dogs. Really enjoyed hanging with the dogs and feeling like I was at home and the fact the dogs are all family.
