We had a lovely romantic dinner for 2 in the Pontoon while our son was being babysat. I had booked the Pontoon for a romantic dinner, but when we got there it was not set up and there a little confusion about the booking. However they quickly set it up for us. The staff were so lovely and friendly and the service was great. It was just the 2 of us, we felt so secluded and it was very romantic and peaceful with nice views of the garden. All the other guests were dining by the beachfront under the marquee. We enjoyed our mains in the Pontoon and then decided to move to Marquee for desert. The marquee was beautiful right on the beach, it was nice to take off our shoes and have our feet in the sand, there was more atmosphere with live music. We wished we had dined there earlier and watched the sun go down.

We called in here for lunch while walking along the beach, and found it a pleasant and relaxing restaurant. The staff were friendly and were able to provide a reasonable choice of gluten free options, discussing questions with the chef when they were not quite sure of answers. Just be aware that, like most places round here, they work on Cook Island time, so don't be in too much of a hurry. We enjoyed our meal and would return if we were here longer.

We ate here several times and we were impressed by the friendly and efficient staff. Food was very good and we could not fault the quality each time. We can highly recommend for a meal and drinks.

Came here as staying within the pacific resort group. Really enjoyed the lunch meals and cocktails alway go down a treat, just make sure your ready to spend. Happy hour is great, but interesting it was for only 1 hour 5-6pm, found a lot of places that were 3-6pm. We booked our dinner, after having lunch there and I found it just a little under par. I found the menu quiet small for a dinner menu, as there entrees included lunch menu items. It is a "family" orientated place, so the place filled up with big tables of kids left to there antics while the parents enjoyed there own tables of food and drinks. Service was good, I would not have wanted to have been in there shoes. It is quiet large to accommodate there guests, so would recommend going maybe after the kids have eaten.

The service was brilliant ! All staff were on the ball, friendly and professional and an absolute delight after some of the service on the Island. Staff to be proud of, right down to the warm blanket for me. All three of us loved our meals. Thank you.
