Came here with my grandma and partner, the food is delicious and the service is amazing. I recommend coming here because not only is the food perfect but the view is also something to see.

My husband and I visited here for lunch. It was a great way to sit back, relax and take in the island atmosphere. The food was great, full of flavour and a reasonable serving. If looking for something a little intimate we would highly recommend...a visit here.More

Having too much breakfast we were looking for a lunch spot at 1.30pm. Hubby and I had a tapas tasting platter that was gorgeous, quick service too (they were closing at 2pm). Tweens chips were really chunky and yummy.

Our absolute Go-To ... devine food, stunning views, service is to perfection, we are regular visitors to the Tuoro Restaurant & Cafe and always highly recommend friends and visitors that are visiting Rarotonga to go and dine and drink there. Added bonus of some beautiful...live singing and music on a Sunday - we plan our trips to Rarotonga so we can fit in the Sunday Session! Have booked and had our family/friend groups to celebrate a 50th, a 21st and upcoming 50th again - and everyone raves about the outstanding food and service we get. Can't wait to be back againMore

Amazing location, terrific friendly service, excellent food. We had the tapas for two followed by the dessert platter. Simply amazing food. Highly recommended open for lunch only 3 days a week so book a table.

Check this place out. Welcoming hostess with a great sense of humour (a must with our crew) and really good wait staff. The food? The food . . WOW! The choice is ample, from Delicious Tapas to a good menu. She had the Tapas, shared...between three, I had the best pork belly I’ve had anywhere. With coconut rice it was so delicious. Yummm! A must visit in Rarotonga.More

We were excited to dine at Tuoro because of its location, but we ended up disappointed. The food was just okay, and they had no flexibility to modify any of the dishes. There was only one server; we didn't wait too long, but it wasn't...like she had the time to be really attentive to each table.More
