An unexpected pleasure within the Crowne Plaza is the experience of fine dining at Rapala. Great for singles, couples, business people or friendly groups, I found the staff attentive and friendly. The menu selection is more than adequate and they have a decent wine list to complement. All of the food is excellent but do try the lobster tail -... More

I was lucky enough to have a complimentary meal at Rapala (I hope this doesn’t make me biased), but I thought it was a wonderful fine dining restaurant. I have heard others refer to it as the pick of Port Moresby and I can see why. The service was attentive and the restaurant had a true air of sophistication about... More

What a great meal! A large group of us went here for dinner, and the choice of food was there to suit us all. Really good service, meals well presented and tasty. Staff friendly but not hovering.

The Rapala is the place for that special meal with that special person or take a corporate client for a better than ordinary meal. Modern food and excellent service and that talented musician playing in the background just tops it off!

I was alone for the evening and decided to see if the restaurant was still as good as the last time in Port Moresby. The seared blue fin tuna was lovely. The lobster risotto was also great. Nice service and very enjoyable.

As part of the Crown Plaza, this A La Carte fine dining restaurant has everything, a great atmosphere, great & helpful staff and the food is of the quality expected in such a restaurant. It was high quality food. The prices are not that high compared to all the overall high cost of food & services in PNG.

The food is ok but nothing to write home about. The buffet seems great until you look closer and see how limited the choices are.

It's my favorite fine dining restaurant in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. The food is great and the attentive and wonderful staff always take good care of me. I must have had dinner in this restaurant for at least a 100 times since I started visiting this country in 2009.
