An amazing location (on Muri Beach). The food was excellent, and the service was good. If you want a special evening out and the weather is nice, this is a perfect place.

After umming and ahhing about where to have breakfast one day, we ended up here. The menu looked decent, and the restaurant was open and other guests already eating. We waited at an outside table for about 10 minutes, but no-one came to serve us....More

A great place to eat and drink - and you can enjoy some adult time whilst the kids are on the beach (only a few metres away)

Beachfront and exotic in every way. Bianca adds a glamour to the restaurant that leaves you smiling and feeling very special. Had both dinner and breakfast here and left happy both times. Magical views.

We had a wonderful dinner here recently. The staff were friendly and attentive and the menu choices were great, so many good things on offer. We chose the sizzler fish and it was amazing. The restaurant is in a beautiful location too.

Right there on the beach, within inches of the water, it is the perfect place to dawdle, linger, and while away the afternoon.

Had dinner here on the last night before flying out. People are friendly, food was great and the setting was gorgeous! Lovely way to eat dinner, on the sand. Expensive, but worth paying the money. Was not disappointed. Try it, you'll like it.

I was in this restaurant twice during my holiday in Rarotonga. I've tried seafood and meat, both very tasty and cooked very well. Waiter always smiling and polite, location in front of the lagoon.

My wife and I have dined at Sandals a couple of nights and the food and service is A1+. We could not fault at all. If you want a cheap eat I suggest that you don't dine here because it is on the pricey side,...More

We dined here most days (either lunch or dinner). We didn't have a bad meal the whole time and the seafood chowder is insanely good!!!

They had vegetarian choices in pizzas but Im not sure about others. Not sure if you eat fish? if you do, the fish is really good. Not much help, sorry.
