We've been to Raro four times and have never made it to the Flying Boat. Probably a little disappointed with it. The pieces of fish were quite small (and thin!) so we thought not great value for money, but the chips were very tasty! We had a bit of a wait although it wasn't that busy, but you can buy... More

The food is great and the prices are reasonable, when you get done eating you can walk a cross the parking lot to The Fishing Club, The beers and drinks are reasonable and the people are a lot of fun we always stop by and see our island friends.

The Flying Boat Fish and Chips is hidden away at the back of the Raratonga Game Fishing Club. There are a bunch of tables right on the lagoon so you can enjoy your meal and look at the view. The Fishing Club is licensed so you can enjoy a beverage as well. The fish was lovely and fresh but a... More

Happened upon by chance, walking distance from Club Raro and the perfect compliment with a beer from the Rarotonga Game Fishing Club. Very affordable for families
