Not guests, but we went to the Island Night (Wednesdays). Fantastic buffet and lovely atmosphere. The owner MC'd and was very friendly. The show was good but not as long as I expected.

Five of us dined here and everyone enjoyed it. The location is lovely down by the beach. We just dropped it for lunch without a booking and it wasn't busy so our wait time wasn't long.

The fruits, vegetables, fish are lovingly prepared in an authentic Aitutaki island way. Don't miss the Sunday BBQ Night - - or the Island Night with the traditional Cook Island Dancing.

Tamanu beach has a beachside 60 seat Bar & Restaurant. We are open for breakfast lunch and dinner with a simple Island style menu. Our feature Island Nights every Thursday are a highlight of Aitutaki dining. Sunday is a relaxed family bbq buffet. The specials menu changes regularly with the freshest catch and seasonal fruits. We do pretty good coffee (getting better every day!) and our sunset cocktails are very tempting.
