Went there on our second day - had changed since we were there last year as old owner had passed away and new owner is a local who employs local staff - which was great to see. Great location, Hula Bar catered for everyone especially the prices. Great restaurant facilities and staff very friendly and accommodating

The food is fantastic and the service is brilliant. Great value for money with plenty of bang for your buck! Chef Boyd is great, with our highlight... More

We booked a table months in advance for my wife's 60th Birthday and we dealt with a very friendly man named Tony, when we finally arrived in Rarotonga we paid them a visit to make sure the booking for 17 Adults and 4 Children was still on place, we then met Dawn again who was busy setting up our table...
