Kia Orana,

Thank you for your kind words about your recent dining experience at Oceans Restaurant & Bar.

We are pleased to read that you enjoyed your meals. Our complimentary breakfasts for inhouse guests featuring a continental buffet plus a hot selection is proving popular for our guests.

Our bistro style lunch menu offers light & tasty options for those who want to stay at the resort. Our a la carte dinner features homestyle cuisine at affordable prices.

Our happy hour program (12noon, 4-6pm, 9.30pm) where you buy 1 get 1 free is a perfect time to sample our huge list of cocktails and watch another glorious sunset as you make friends with fellow visitors and diners.

We hope to see you again, soon.

Best wishes,

“OUTSTANDING AWESOME”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

Spent 1wk in heaven I mean heaven, the room, food were outstanding. The service at the front desk was great they try to make your stay as perfect as possible. concierge Tia was very helpful in booking tours and other travel arrangements.
The Ocean was excellent the food was very good, the staff was very nice, being solo they made you feel part of the family. I have started my bookings for next Sept. this time for two weeks, maybe more. I can't wait to go back

Kia Orana,

Thank you for your kind words about your recent dining experience (and stay at Crown Beach Resort & Spa) at Oceans Restaurant & Bar.

We are pleased to read that you loved your Beachfront Spa Villa, located right on the beach, on the edge of the sparkling blue lagoon; enjoyed all other parts of our small boutique resort including the front desk and concierge.

We are equally pleased to read that you loved dining at Oceans Restaurant & Bar, and that you were welcomed into our 'Crown' family.

We miss you and we look forward to seeing you again in September 2012.

Kia Manuia,

“Island Night Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

6 of us went to the Island night. On arriving we were greated by the sultry sounds of island Groove's music which set the mood for a lovely nights entertainment. The food was ok smorgasboard style a large selection of different foods. Would recommend for the entertainment alone but arrive early as Island Groove will have you singing along. Great Fun.

Kia Orana,

Thank you for your kind words about your Thursday Island Night Experience at Oceans Restaurant & Bar.

We agree with you that Tani & Rose (Island Groove) are truly fantastic singers & entertainers and we are pleased to feature them at Oceans Restaurant on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

We are equally pleased to read that you loved the Akirata Cultural Dance Troupe who present a fascinating cultural performance featuring vibrant costumes, pulsating drums, angelic singing and energetic dancing presented by Rarotonga's top female and male dancers.

Our island buffet features over 30 traditional dishes ranging from ika mata (marinated tuna), rukau (taro leaf spinach), poke (banana / pawpaw pudding), eke ta'akari (curry octopus), mitiore (fermented seafood in grated coconut) through to roast pork & a full selection of gorgeous desserts. Cook Islands traditional cuisine is natural & cooked in its own juices (which can be described as bland) and may not bode well with visitors.

We hope you were able to participate in our daily happy hour program (4-6pm & 9.30-10.30pm) where you buy one drink and get one free absolutely free. Its always about value for money at our restaurants.

All in all, thank you for sharing your cultural experience with us and we hope to see you again, soon.

Best wishes,

Ms Mii Pauka
