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.

Best value for $$ eats on the island. The $3.50 happy hour burgers are divine! Fresh and filling. We have already been back twice this holiday.

Great spot to catch up and chat with the locals. Food is fresh and amazing value. We visited twice and had burgers. Thought about the huge Palace Burger, but decided it was too big for me.

It took four of us to dissect it and eat it lol, very cheap place to eat by the harbour. This place is busy however the food is worth the wait.

This is the most authentic place to eat on the island, it was happy hour so we got the hamburger/cheeseburger and boy it was so good?? I don't know what they do but the bun was so soft absorbing all the patty, just a simple...tomato sauce and maybe lettuce but thats all you need. Will make this a place we will always swing by when visiting RarotongaMore

Introduced to this place on advice from a local. Burgers are made fresh, and chips are from fresh oil. We have been there a few times, and consistency remains on point. A few sheltered seats, otherwise picnic tables in the open. Casual environment. As per...the title, get a cheeseburger, and make it wet.More

Called in on a Saturday afternoon, it was quite busy, Instead of the usual palace burger we ordered fish n chips with some calamari. Took a while to get it but worth the wait. Mahimahi with crispy batter and very nice chips too. Will always...go back, especially for the location on the wharf.More

Have to try either the palace burger or a wet cheeseburger. There is a reason why this place is always packed with locals - it’s a Raro must do!
