They serve the best crumbed fish on the island. Really good Mahi Mahi! Great view from tables and very friendly folks serving. Very good value for money as well.

When you visit Rarotonga on top of your list is a visit to the Mooring cafe. The Tuna taco is super delicious. The fish burger is also excellent. The service is excellent. We went back for lunch 4 times in 7 days. Bloody delicious.

Simple and rustic place. Nice view of the Lagoon. Nice attention. Very nice cooking. I asked if I could pay with credit card and the owner said ONLY CASH but if you don’t have cash, bring it tomorrow. It was very kind of her, as it is my first time there. Anyway I had money and paid in the moment.

Thanks to other reviews,we dropped in for lunch. It is a very casual affair, wooden tables outside in the shade, close to the beach with beautiful views of the gorgeous little bay. BYO, which we did, Thankyou. Lots of sandwiches on the menu but the star was the fish and chips. WOW a huge serve, 3 good sized pieces of golden battered fish and it was VERY GOOD. The lime mayonnaise on top was really good too. So was the side salad with a sweetish mango dressing. Highly recommended for lunch.
