Just returned from a 12 night cuisine fantasia and the Little Poly wins hands down. The team are so welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. The location is idyllic and classic, you can dine inside or out and enjoy moonlight beach and infinity pool views. The food is quite simply the best, my standards are high and they always surpass....in... More

Everytime we come to rarotonga the little Polynesian is our special night out. Sitting at the edge of the infinity pool looking out over the reef. The food is always excellent and the service was great. Even better knowing they are now under the Pacific resort umbrella.

Perfect location facing the lagoon over the swimming pool. You will enjoy the sunset while ordering your dinner. A very small operation doing its very best to satisfy the patrons. So you will like with friends. Unfortunately the cuisine is good but very unsophisticated. Anyway if you are not too focused on what you eat you'll spend a good evening

Tables are placed mostly around the infinity pool and towards the beach There is a pleasant bar for pre or post dinner (or lunch) drinks Excellent and varied choice on menu... More

My partner and I went their one night without a reservation, and was warmly welcomed. The Mosquitos were really bad and we were bitten alive but they had spray which they gave us. I had the pork belly which was incredible 10/10. Would definitely dine there again

We dined at Little Polynesian Restaurant & Bar in December 2016. The restaurant is located by the pool and also right in front of this amazing lagoon. The food was spectacular and so was the service.
