Dinner for two and the fire show. Very enjoyable Ate here February 2020, evening meal, live music and the fire show. The young female singer guitarist was lovely. Played a great selection of background music, never too overpowering. Nearest I can come to her style...is Eva Cassidy, but Katreena was first class. We aren’t big eaters and chose a Caesar salad with a seafood pasta. They were both humongously large! So we ate the caesar, plus a few prawns and mussels from the pasta, and they bagged the rest. It was still delicious the next day👍 Then we had a local family put on a fire show. Aged from 9 years up. They worked hard and kept us amused for perhaps 20 minutes, but at the end of the day there is only a certain number of ways you can twirl a stick with both ends on fire. But it was local and it was family, and they got good applause. Washed it down with a few beers and a couple of cocktails, and the bill was 110nzd. Would happily return👍👍More

We went to Flambe on our first night in Rarotonga. As this resturant is only open Friday and Saturday nights and we were staying at the Crown Beach Resort where the restaurant is located, we thought this would be an awesome start to our holiday....Unfortunately we had to wait an hour for our food and none of the staff gave us the heads up about this. The food was also really average. On a positive note, we were entertained by the stunning vocalist and there was also a fire dance show put on by some local children. As someone who performed as a child, I didn't mind this, but it didn't sit well with my partner. I won't return or recommend this restaurant.More

Was amazing two years ago but disappointed this visit. Vegetables all soggy and tasteless like canned ones, with all our main meals. Duck was tough and risotto gross and truffle potato just mashed with no flavour. No ostrich which we wanted. Dessert was good.

We were entertained by the talented and lovely Tuaine Paptua and enjoyed our romantic dinner on the outdoor deck. Food was great, although I felt the desserts were a bit overly complicated with just a bit much going on. Otherwise just beautiful!

We had an absolutely fantastic night at Flambe. The food was amazing and the staff very friendly and professional. I had a cocktail (well actually I couldn't stop at one!) called The Nutcracker and it was out of this world! There was live music and...the guy had a beautiful voice. We couldn't fault anything.More

We loved our meal at Flambe, but we think it needs to be open more nights each week, not just Friday and Saturday.

Made our reservation 2 days ago. Restaurant fully aware we had a 9 yo and when we arrived didn't you know we have no under 16s in the restaurant '. We were told we could go in a separate restaurant with a kids menu because...everything on the menu in the main restaurant had alcohol in it in. What a load of rubbish! Rarotonga is very discriminating of children. We have a well behaved and well travelled child who has never been treated like this. You had our phone number too! Bad form on a Saturday night when not much open with no reservation. Went to Kikau Hut who love kids and had a fantastic meal! Shame on you Flambe...More
