Had dinner here on the last night before flying out. People are friendly, food was great and the setting was gorgeous! Lovely way to eat dinner, on the sand. Expensive, but worth paying the money. Was not disappointed. Try it, you'll like it.

I was in this restaurant twice during my holiday in Rarotonga. I've tried seafood and meat, both very tasty and cooked very well. Waiter always smiling and polite, location in front of the lagoon.

Great food. Great views. Great staff. What more can you ask for? We had the stuffed chicken breast special and veal rack and both were delicious. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive and we ate dinner barefoot on the beach!
