Great night out with family and friends. Loved the food, especially the seafood chowder. Top spot for a meal out and good value for our money. We will be back next time we are in Raratonga.

Kikau hut was the best dining experience that we had on the island. The staff were very attentive. We had the seafood platter and the dessert platter and would recommend both.

Highly recommend this restaurant. We stumbled across it my accident and couldn't be more surprised at the wonderful food and great service. They even had a lovely little outside seating area for smokers.

We have eaten at Kikau on our last visit to Rarotonga, another great meal here, good variety on the menu and friendly staff, recommend this restaurant to any one visiting the island, walking distance from many resorts.

A small intimate restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere, local art, beautiful gardens combined with excellent service give it a special ambiance for all diners. European food with island flair, Coeliac Friendly, gluten free and vegetarian options along with a children's menu and free transfers by arrangement make Kikau Hut special. We are wheelchair accessible also.
