We had lunch here and the choice of food exellent. I had a vegetarian muffin which was scrumptuous with Raro chutney on the side.

Arrived late just before closing time at lunch. Were served with a salad and corn fritters along with a cooling beer. Felt a little rushed but it was our choice to eat knowing that closing was close. Would certainly go again but with more time to enjoy.

We ate here a couple of times and enjoyed all our meals with really friendly and fast service. It's located just at the edge of town with a nice view across the street of the water.

It was raining when we visited for lunch. Hard. And sideways. We gave the only covered table a go but it was just too unpleasant in the conditions. After a bit of standing around looking awkward (we'd already ordered), we asked if there were some more bar stools so we could sit at the bar. Just then the team went into action and carried tables and chairs into a dry back room behind the bar. Problem solved with a smile.
Food was great too with delicious fish sliders and local beer (too many places on the island only served imported generic brands which is a big shame as Matutu and Rarotonga Brewery have fine local brews.
