Pretty tasty pizza! Didn't take too long to cook so we only waited about 15 mins, not bad considering the usual Cook Islands time. No tomato sauce base, just cheese, which makes them taste a bit different to standard pizzas. Generous toppings though. There's a...More

We ordered their special Pizza. The pizza base was really good. And wood fire cooking was on point. The pizza has a lot of ground meat. Hard to see the cheese under it all... but I thoroughly enjoyed it as did my wife. Only improvement...More

Best Pizza on the island! I read the reviews so had to try it. Went back 3 times. Only thing that would make it better would be to have beer or wine as a great spot to relax and eat also.

The only evening Woodfired pizza cafe on the island. Dine in a funky outdoor casual setting with eat in or take out option. Great affordable meals for families with colouring in to entertain the children. Salads and wraps also available for lunch.
