Cool place, great view especially at night - mesmerizing! Great service at the bar, everyone in Raro is real friendly, nice people. Waitress moved us 3 times to get us closer to the beach - that is great service!

Trader Jacks became our favourite spot for dinner. I had the Cook Islands Tasting plate on the first night & although my husband was content with his meal, he was picking at mine too!

The next time we went for dinner, we had the same tasting plate each. It had some amazing flavours.

The wait staff were very friendly.

Having heard negative comments from fellow travellers about the food quality and raucous noise in Trader Jack's, we took up our reserved lagoon-side table with some trepidation. We couldn't have been happier. Service was efficient and charming, fish and seafood top quality, views glorious and ambiance relaxed.
This is a fairly large establishment with bar attached, located right in the centre of town, so perhaps may be noisy on occasion and not ideal for an intimate romantic supper. However we found it reasonably priced and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Lovely food including the pizzas which can be ordered at the bar. Not the nicest outlook on the island though as its rocky and people take their boats out here
