Don't let the outside of this restaurant fool you. Once through the doors, you have an amazing beach setting. Food and cocktails were great and the staff were so so friendly. Would definitely return.

I spent a week on Rarotonga and ate here three time. The food is excellent. Try the fish curry and fish of the day. Drinks from the bar are delicious! The service at Vaima is impeccable. The servers are gracious and friendly. Highly recommend.

Description
We are situated right on the beach. Imagine sitting on the beach with the sun setting, sipping your favourite cocktail and enjoying some of the best cuisine on the island - how romantic! We also offer a pizza take away service - forget the cooking - enjoy our pizza in your room/hotel or just sit on the beach with your feet in the water enjoying the food. We can cater for small private functions and weddings. Look forward to seeing you at the Vaima. We recommend that families book between 5.30 and 6.30 pm.
