Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I thought we were in the Phillipines not raro.staff were friendly. Got seated outside. The view is a paddock with containers and a qater tant. Then you have the beautiful ocean and sunset. The lights attracted a lot of bugs which was annoying..but hey thats nature. I dont eat seafood so i chose a chicken salad. Hubby chose a local fish dish as most seafood is inported. He said his was ok but had enjoyed better at another place the previous day. My salad was huge in size but small in taste..a whole lot of lettuce and overcooked chicken. I dont aant a horrible salad at $44. I returned my salad much to their horror. ..we simply coukd not see how they justify their pricing. Itnwas our 30th wedding anniversary and i wish i had stuck with an original plan of a dinner on the beach not up a hill as we were disappointed. We wouldn't reccommend but i guess you have to try for yourself.

Had the antipodes seafood platter which was ok but most of the seafood was imported from NZ only the fish was locally sourced. Service was good but they were in the middle of constructing more outdoor eating areas so felt like a construction zone.

Food was mostly excellent as was service and of course setting is great. Price was reasonable in my view. Only issue was that the seafood linguine was like warm. We did say but decided not to accept the offer to resolve. Shame cos it was otherwise a great dish as was the rest of the food esp the sashimi. May go back this trip.

Incredible experience. Would recommend Antipodes to anyone, the staff were so welcoming and accomodating ensuring we got to enjoy each aspect of the dining experience from choosing a drink to the food. We will absolutely be coming back

The food in Antipodes is top rate and the prices reflex this. But as the view from this restaurant is to die for, you don't mind paying the price. The only negative is that the late afternoon sun is so hot and staff are reluctant to open up the umbrellas to help with the heat.

This was such a great place to dine, we were lucky to get a reservation since it was their slow season. It was so hot when we got there they started us out inside until the sun went down a bit, then we moved to the balcony with an awesome sunset and night view. Our food was the best we had the entire time on the Island and most of the food we had was pretty good. Our waitress Nancy was so wonderful and took great care of us both nights we were there. The first night I had the shrimp ravioli and it was to die for, so good I am still dreaming of it, my husband had the fresh fish (tuna) and he really loved it. So much so the next morning he called to see if we could get a reservation that night also. The 2nd night we had the shrimp pasta and the shrimp filet and both were really good, I wanted to drink the coconut cream that came with my shrimp. We highly recommend this restaurant.

The place is a cool design; it feels very Mediterranean. We were lucky enough to get a table right in the middle, which made us feel a bit like celebrities. We got the Paellea for two, which was filled with lots of grilled prawns, but we could have almost fed four, but very tasty.

Antipodes is an absolute must for anyone travelling to Rarotonga. Every member of staff was so lovely and welcoming, and the food was beyond delicious. Yes, the prices can be considered steep, but it was worth every penny of what we spent. The views are second to none, the atmosphere is inviting and the unhurried pace of the restaurant suits the overall vibe of the island.

We had a lovely meal here. At first we were a bit put off by the prices but the food and service was great. I would recommend the Delicious prawn and calamari salad.

We made a reservation in advance and got seated about 30-45m before the sunset - and while the weather didnt play out that great we still managed to capture some daylight because that allowed us to spot whales passing by... for starters! :) Then as it got darker we transitioned into the food part of the experience - the menu is creative, pretty big and I think the restaurant is "advertised" as serving tapas "only" - there are indeed small dishes but then there are plenty of really big dishes that are more of a combination platters - really cool ideas and everything looked and tasted amazing! Service is super nice and friendly, and the whole place is definitely a must while on Raro, it's a very cool building/balcony/patio lay out, even the walk to the restrooms is a pretty scenic experience :) now we understand why we were told so much about it! TIP: Whether it's pricey? I wouldn't call anywhere as pricey as it gets in Caribbean islands for a similar type of a venue or in Hawaii, to compare something closer - we ordered this big sharing plate (sooooooooo much food for 2!!!!) and 2 glasses of wine and it was about $120 US, so not bad at all for this type of a restaurant

There were 10 of us and all meals were amazing. The best steak I've tasted in a long time and the flavours were delicious of the other meals I tried. Lovely service too. Thanks for a great view and experience!

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends so we booked our entire family (10 of us) for dinner. We were quite excited and really looking forward to our dinner. Sadly, the service we received was just simply terrible. We arrived at 6:30pm and did not receive our meals for two hours. Basically 6 out of our 10 had an issue with their meals. Cold. Undercooked. Overcooked. Missing parts. Just simply terrible. Would not recommend nor waste my money again
