We tried this restaurant again after a 7 year absence, and it is still pleasing. We sat in the outside section, which is much cosier and romantic than the main area. We had the grilled fish if the day (Mahi Mahi) which was fresh and...tasty.More

A good solid restaurant offering bistro style food. If you're wanting a good value meal without the trimmings, then this is a great option.

Food was lovely- we all enjoyed our dinner. Service was good and didn’t have to wait long. Things were as good as 2018.

After a 5 year absence were not disappointed when visited this popular restaurant. Friendly and efficient service, good food with a local flair, acceptable drinks list. A most thoroughly enjoyable meal. Highly recommended if in Rarotonga.

It's a few years since my last visit here, but the standard and quality of the food is just as good as it has always been. Wasn't too busy, given the travel bubble had only been open a couple of weeks. The service was also...excellent.More

Really delicious seafood platter, very fresh with nice hospitality. The lighting leaves something to be desired (the fluorescent lights actually distracted from the meal for me), but the outdoor space is very nice.

Went here for dinner this evening and was very pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere of the restaurant, greeted at the entrance and was asked to tag into the restaurant and taken to our table, enjoyed drinks and dinner as well as dessert. We ordered the...seafood platter followed by passion fruit cheese cake and a lemon curd cake both were amazing. The waitress was super friendly and made the evening extra special. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

We had to try the seafood platter, enough to feed 2, even though it was for one, other items were on the menu, but we went for the seafood and were not disappointed.

We were there mid week in the slow season so it wasn't very busy. Service was friendly and accurate and the meals were good. The location is close to the main road but far enough back to be relaxed. A nice feature is that they...will give you a lift back to your hotel if you request.More
