We had deep fried Marlin bites & chips for lunch. What a spot... You're able to sit next to the Flying Boat or (which we chose) sit in the Cook Islands Fishing Club covered out door bar over looking the sea. The food was nothing...More

Great Fish & Chips. There are picnic tables outside. It's close to the harbor. This place was really busy the few days I was there.

Called in here on our circuit of the island by e-bike. Excellent fish-burger, stunning views and great service included a "doggie bag" for substantial leftovers.
