Description: We are situated right on the beach. Imagine sitting on the beach with the sun setting, sipping your favourite cocktail and enjoying some of the best cuisine on the island - how romantic! We also offer a pizza take away service - forget the cooking - enjoy our pizza in your room/hotel or just sit on the beach with your feet in the water enjoying the food. We can cater for small private functions and weddings. Look forward to seeing you at the Vaima. We recommend that families book between 5.30 and 6.30 pm.

Back here for the third time the food is always good. Menu hardly ever changes. Not gourmet but the food is reasonable with very big servings. You can sit with your feet in the sand which is alway nice, however remember to bring the mozzie repellant.
Just need to remember where you are when ordering from the menu and interpret the descriptions with that in mind. Really enjoyed the catch of the day 'tuna' when they cooked it how I had asked. Not sure they have quite grasped what a brûlée is, but hey we will probably go again.

My husband and I traveled to Rarotonga for our honeymoon and ate at Vaima at the recommendation of our resort manager. It happened to be a very windy evening, but we chose to sit out by the water anyhow. We had a gorgeous view of the water and the sunset. Our food was delicious, too! I had the Chicken Delight which was the equivalent of the american dish Chicken Cordon Bleu - it was amazing! Very large portion, too. My husband got the Pork Belly and said it was great as well. We had the warm chocolate cake dessert and I am STILL dreaming about it - SOO yummy! Definitely a place to check out while in Raro!

Lovely food and service, atmosphere was relaxing, stray dogs were hanging around but that's raroto ga. Food and drinks were a little pricey but worth it.

Since our first meal here we have returned twice, we have sampled the poached fish in coconut and lime, beef Wellington, curry, fish and chips, pork belly and roasted crackling and the lamb.
You will not be disappointed, a beautiful restaurant, beautiful location and fantastic friendly helpful staff.
It is one of our favorite restaurants.

Great place for dinner. Tables are on the sand so shoes are optional. Great place to watch the sunset. Good food, good service and moderate prices
