Had a fabulous dinner (accompanied by gorgeous sunset!). Asked if it was possible for a pick up and drop off after dinner which was kindly provided. Gorgeous food and sneaky pud. Definitely get there early enough to have a cocktail while the sun sets

We went for lunch and enjoyed the simple food and the lovely view. So we booked for dinner next evening after noticing there was live music on offer.

The restaurant is set on the western side of the island and so has a fantastic view of the sunset. We had a beer enjoying the 6.45pm sunset and then stayed for the fish special (Tuna) and the seafood hot grill (delicious). The easterly wind was blowing that day so this was definitely the spot to be. In fact it was pretty windy all week when we were on Rarotonga so finding somewhere protected (eg, Western side in the easterly) was definitely a big part of picking the right place for lunch and dinner. Waterline is definitely worth a visit.

Having traveled the world - the Pina Colada I had at the Waterline was the best one I have ever had. It was so full of flavour and not too heavy on the cream - perfect.
Had the best seat on the beach and watched the sunset - heavenly

Had dinner with my husband . Started with bruschetta which was tasty. The pork loin with salad was quite large but was great to share as my husband decided to have the sea food chouder which is an entree as his main .service was good and location was beach front.

My wife and I thought we would stop at the next bar on our scooters. Down a long drive we had no clue what to expect. The cocktails were perfect and the lamb pizza amazing. Wonderful service. Would highly recommend.
