We ate here 3 times in a week because it was so yummy. The place itself is just a few picnic tables on the lagoon, but the sandwiches were an awesome lunch. The fish was so fresh and tasty. Ifyou feel like having a beer with your lunch, just bring it along and enjoy the view! I thought the "Fresh off the boat" sandwich was the best. But the tuna ones were good as well and the ike mata was delicious!

My partner and I had lunch at this lunch cafe bar after reading the raving reviews on here. The reviews were spot on, and we returned several times during our stay on Rarotonga! We tried the various tuna and chicken sandwiches, all of which were bursting with flavours and freshness and were served on freshly-baked Turkish bread. The smoothies were yummy too. A great place for a lunchtime sandwich with views of that stunning lagoon!

You really have to try the FOB (fresh off the boat) fish sandwich or salad - it's the bomb.

The Mooring is a simple but great little spot for lunch. There are gorgeous views of the lagoon from the outdoor picnic tables (with umbrellas for shade).
We had the Fresh Off the Boat burgers - mahi mahi with salad and lime mayo on turkish bread. So delicious we went back more than once. And they cook the fish when you order, so it is still nice and hot when your burger is served.
The only downside is that unless you feel like a burger/sandwich, or having the burger/sandwich made into a salad, there are no other menu options. This definitely wasnt a problem for us as the burgers were so lovely.

They serve very basic food - just sandwiches and salads, but they are excellent! We had the Capt Moko tuna sandwich and the FOB fish sandwich. The bread is excellent and fresh (best bread on the island I think). We also loved the smoothies!

Not the cheapest ($10 for sandwiches and $7 for smoothies), but cheaper than a restaurant option and worth every cent.
