We ate here 2 nights while in Aitutaki. Scalop pie, ika mata and sushi is a must! Reasonably priced and the service is pretty fast.

We loved this restaurant! Very casual, all open to the outside air, and we didn’t need to make a reservation. The fish and chips (with parrot fish!) were amazing! My husband loved the spicy fisherman’s stew. Highly recommended!
