Reviewed 21 July 2021

We visited here for lunch as we had gone for a snorkel at the beach here. It is run more like a fast food restaurant, lining up to order food and given buzzers to say when food is ready. On going to order both of...the dishes my husband wanted were unavailable as were many other dishes. We were given the buzzer and sat there for at least 45/50 minutes waiting on two appetisers and a chicken salad. When I went to where the kitchen was (which is an open kitchen) I could see my husbands appetisers sat on the warmer shelf for at least 10 minutes (one of which was chicken and the other prawns). I could hear the chef continuously asking where the chicken salad was, when it was finally made they handed it to me with a partially cooked fried egg (it was meant to be a boiled egg) to which I said I was pregnant and I cannot eat undercooked eggs so they took it back and I waited again. You have to carry your dishes across on a tray if you have more than you can carry. My husbands dishes were luke warm at best and it was lucky I wasn't eating those dishes being pregnant as nearly cold chicken and prawns would not have worked well. The salad was not fresh and seeing the conditions of the kitchen actually put me off my food. The quality of the restaurant is a shame considering the beautiful decking it has to sit on over the sea. School holidays made the place a bit manic too ( we were glad as an adult couple we were not staying at The Rarotongan resort)More

Food was basic and tasteless. Same menu for lunch and dinner all week. Pizzas were dripping in cheese. No imagination used to create.More

Located in the Rarotonga Beach Resort, the restaurant is located over the water. The menu is quite varied and the food is wonderful. We spent three afternoons munching on appetizers and drinking beer. Staff were friendly and welcoming. You can swim/snorkel here or just lean...over the edge and watch the fish.More

We ate here twice during our 7 nights on the island. First night as we arrived late and didn’t want to venture out again, and second time as we’d been out all day and were tired. The food was fine, fresh and tasty. Much smaller...portions than most other places we tried on the island for things like a fish sandwich. We would have tried somewhere else in the resort if there’d been other choices but both restaurant areas AND the restaurant next door in the adults only Sanctuary resort all had the exact same menu. Cocktails a fairly standard price for most places on the island at $15-16 each.More
