Obelix is a talented chef! The ingredients are premium and his recipes are delicious. I have walked, hitchhiked and biked kilometres to eat at his snack and I have never been disappointed! You would never guess how good it is just by passing in front...More

One dish was very good and the other mediocre. The portions were enormous. Menu is small but there is something for every taste and the price is ok. If the waiter had had a clean T-shirt and clean hands, I would have given 4 points.

We were the only customers which was a shame as the food was great. Simple barbecued fish cooked to order. The fresh basil sauce with basil picked from the garden was delicious. It's pretty basic and the menu is short but it suited us well.

This is an excellent restaurant located between the Kia Ora and the main part of Avatoru. The menu is written on a blackboard, and the seating is in what is basically a covered garden patio. When we were there two weeks ago, the choices were...More

While it is true the restaurant does not have a water view, the large and tasty portions made us go back. It was next to our B&B so also convenient. Unforgettable mahi mahi in vanilla sauce. And when my husband craved a meal from home...More

Very good food at a reasonable price (for FP). Good fresh tuna. If the chef needs basil, he just steps into the yard and trims it off the bush.
