Not only the best beach and private open dining area but the best Island night food and entertainment on Rarotonga. Variety of meats, salads and local cuisine was amazing and expertly presented in a Buffet style. A great "Warrior" M.C. kept the crowd entertained and even took time out for photos with the guests after roving through the beautifully appointed grounds of the Crown Beach Resort lighting the garden torches to his call of the Conch Shell. Quite spectacular! The Island entertainment was the best show I have seen on the Island. Male and female dancers in incredible authentic costumes put on a fabulous show on a raised stage! Dinners especially, at Ocean's were always so very good with perfectly prepared steaks and seafood and also a well known and popular Roast night which should not be missed. This too is buffet style! Overall prices are competitive but the food quality and value is far above all others I have enjoyed on the Island. Drink prices are very good too!

This restaurant was our resorts main restaurant and we ate there regularly meaning breakfasts , some lunches and some dinners. The food was quite good although breakfast was basic compared to other resorts we have stayed at in other countries.
Dinners were good with a couple of theme nights very good i.e seafood night, island show night and Sunday baked dinner night.
Overall nice but not brilliant.

A very popular dining place at The Crown, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Most of the meals are delicious and staff are competent and attentive. The atmosphere is very welcoming at all times of the day.

We had a meal here on the last night of our holiday. Great food, great service and awesome setting. We watched whales surfacing outside the reef. The steak was great value for money. Wonderful and attentive staff.

Hot drinks in plastic glasses after a long wait. Food is really not great. Far better value at the Edgewater Resort and Spa.

Thank you for taking the time to post your report regarding your dining experience at Oceans Restaurant.

Whilst we always delight in receiving compliments, we also sincerely appreciate our Ocean’s Patrons informing us of when our services and / or product falls short of their expectations. As we are always striving to improve our standards, less positive comments provide a valuable tool of reference during our Departmental Meetings and Staff Training Sessions. Your contribution is therefore appreciated.
Thank you again for your report, and we trust that the less positive aspect of your dining experience, will not deter you from dining with us again.
