We stayed at the resort, but chose to eat here numerous times due to the views, the excellent service, nice menu choices, and the act they cooked the fish my husband caught for us!

Honestly words can not explain! Go here and indulge, if your not staying at the hotel you need to book, it is expensive but the food is unbelievable, we also went to the island night here and the buffet was to die for!

If you're staying at the resort the breakfast might be the best part of your day. If you're not staying here it is worth coming for breakfast or at least dinner. Everything (fruit, fish bread, etc) is fresh as can be. The views are awesome...More

What can I say. Every meal a winner. Didn't have room for dessert every time but had it anyway because there was no way I was missing out on such beautiful food. Nothing else at Aitutaki compares. Great wine selection as well.
