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.

This place doesn’t look much but it provided really good fresh food. They had fresh fish when many didn’t have any, had great burgers and a lovely baked banana split. The best thing about this restaurant was that it was walkable from the nearby Raratongan (where food is terrible!)

We ate here a couple of times as it was within walking distance from where we were staying so was convenient. This place is run down and there’s nothing appealing about the place, decor or outlook. In saying that the food was adequate with no complaints. Good portion and well presented. Probably good value for money.

He's closed at odd times, but solid food, great location. Egg burgers, chips, interesting assortment of wine and beer.

it was a fantastic takeaway when we ate there but sadly as of November 2022 it isn't there anymore. Hopefully, this is a temporary thing and they will open again.

The fish and chips were literally the best I have ever had. The chips were delicious and the piece of fish was large and flakey and perfectly cooked. One order was enough for two diners. Being just across from the lagoon, it's a great place to dine and snorkel.

My wife and I stopped in just for drinks. We tried to make conversation with the person working, although unsuccessfully due to the fact she was quite busy cooking and serving by herself. The burgers smelled amazing, the restaurant was very quaint & clean, and the location excellent.

Actually Kaena Restaurant & bar is located close to the Rarotongan Resort & Spa, close to the Aroa beach, corner of Ara Tapu and Aroa Rd.

One place we didnt expect we would rave about. But the hot chips are just amazing. Lovely crunchy outter and soft inside. Nothing like the chips we get at home, put our local chips to shame. Hubby had a burger and really enjoyed that. Just a lovely meal when you are sick of resturant food

Great location next to the dive shop and the Ratotongan resort and across the road from a great beach and lagoon. Excellent friendly service at a reasonable price. Good variety on the menu for both dining in or takeaway. Had a fish meal (fish salad and chips) to takeaway and had it on the beach. Excellent meal. Would certainly recommend a visit

Went on holidays to Rarotonga, this is one of my favourite places. The food is amazing, and such a great price. Plus the customer service was spot on. High recommended.

Unpretentious, clean, very friendly, great value burger and fish and chips place next door to the Dive Shop and within 200 metres of the Rarotongan Resort. You can take away or eat in and they offer beer and wine too as well as the usual soft drinks and shakes. Generous serves. We were staying at the Rarotongan Onemaru Villa and it was often easier and more fun to grab food at Kaena than go into the resort's facilities.

We ate here twice! Great fish & chips, burgers etc. Just a short walk from The Rarotongan Resort. Staff were lovely! Great spot on the beach front also.

Kaena has two modes - a take-away area (but there are a couple of tables so you can stay and eat) plus a "restaurant" area with a different menu and table service. Simple, relaxed service in the Polynesian way. The food is good, the prices attractive and all in all, just what you'd expect.
