Before we even staryed eating we were blown away by the excellent customer service from the manager.
Then the food came out and and we were in heaven. The scallops were cooked in the chef's special sauce and were the best I've ever tasted. The dessert platter was incredible, highlight being the chocolate won tons.

Would eat here every night if we could.

Thank Liam B

We visited Kikau Hut on a hot evening in December and without a sea breeze or air conditioning it was way too hot. The meals we had were very average at best and certainly not worthy of the ratings on this site - perhaps it was a bad night and the staff in the kitchen were as hot as we were?!

Had pleasant dinner of Ika Mata, scallops cooked in baby taro, and shrimp in a garlic sauce. Everything was pleasant, with the shrimp being a standout. The Pineapple Delight Cocktail was delightful.

We are always welcomed by Gordon who owns the Kikau hut, since we always have an excellent meal there when we return to Raro. We have been introduced to food we have not tried before and finished with a delicious dessert. We look forward to eating there again. Our best place to dine on the island.
