We ate here a few times over a week as were staying at Muri Beach Club Hotel.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner were all great.

Reasonably priced, well presented meals. We aren’t big eaters so generally found an entree each and a side was enough for dinner, leaving room for delicious dessert.

The suggested wine matches are perfect and with the beach side setting, make for a a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Staff were great, especially Rowena.

This restaurant has some theme nights and we ate at the Pig and Prawn night. The Pork ribs were awesome (lots at $45) as were the 6 prawns which just seemed a bit expensive at $35 with no sides or anything. We shared these 2 meals with another couple & purchased a side order of wedges. Ample to eat for all 4 for us.

We stayed at this hotel but only ate at the restaurant twice. Once for the Wednesday culture night. The second time was the Reef and Beef night (Sunday). Our waiter let us down but this would be for a want of training because she was otherwise polite and friendly; typical, really, of all the staff in this hotel. We had the reef and beef and the tuna. Big,perfectly cooked and presented dishes. Both were too much for us to get through. But the beef arrived without the reef which our waiter blamed on the kitchen - she had not written down our orders, relying instead on memory. And we waited. We waited for her to take our order and then we really waited for her to clear our table when we had finished. Having cleared the table we were not offered the dessert menu so, after two hours, we got up and left. I have reviewed the hotel separately (loved it) but the Silver Sands Restaurant - average.

On our first night having just arrived in the afternoon we walked down for a cocktail ($10 voucher in the Rarotonga foldout map) and to eat from the menu. The fish of the day, tuna, was superb and well priced for a rather large meal. Hubbies lamb ribs was on the small side and lacking in carbs for a 'mens meal', as well as having a heavy price. Yes one meal was more island based and the other probably imported however food for thought!

On our last night we called in for a simple meal of spicy wedges and another cocktail this time eating outside on the beach tables, another great experience and this time we lucked it for the happy hour cocktails ($12 each instead of $16).

Cocktails we loved the most: Tuti Fruiti Daiquiri and pina colada

Absolutely stunning, after getting married at Te Manava, we had our wedding dinner here. It was a beautiful spot and staff were very helpful and excellent service. We had Vinnie as our waiter, he was absolutely wonderful. Highly recommended.
