Amazing dining setting, with two sides of the restaurant and in the middle a big platform surrounded by water for the show. Buffet dinner was nice. The dance show didn't last quite as long as I thought it would but it was very good nevertheless....More

This show was a narrative of how the Cook Islands we’re settled. Great dancing and great food! Buffet with all the trimmings, cater to all food allergies. They have traditional dishes as well which were great to try.
