I was really looking forward to these fish and chips when i visited in January. Disappointed that the only fish available was Tuna just like the rest of the Island. Not to the best fish to choose to deep fry. It was quite dry being a tuna fish and the batter to fish ration was out. The chips were ok... More

Had dinner at this place the other night and really enjoyed it. As someone else has said, it feels like you're having dinner at someone's place. It does takeaway and eat in, reasonably priced and the food was great. I had chicken and chips, the chips were amazing and the chicken had a great crispy skin. The main dining area... More

We enjoyed our first dinner in aitutaki here. It felt like we were eating at someone's house which goes with the laid back island life.

Great food, friendly service and well priced for an evening meal Battered tuna may sound weird but done their way it is excellent. My partner enjoyed her chicken, stating it was one of the leanest pieces she had ever eaten Everything is served with chips and salad. The beer is cold too. Recommended

We cruised in to Puffy's little restaurant last night and ordered takeaway fish and chips and a salad to go. Such lovely people. We were delighted to find the fish was yellow fin tuna and it was perfectly cooked. We also found they had given us a couple of extra pieces of delicious fish. Salad was also lovely. Thank you!

After a few days of eating local cafe/takeaway food, which is usually thick battered deep fried or rice and chicken, it was nice to go somewhere with a light battered fish, smaller serving of chips and lovely garden salad. Puffy's was recommended to us by a regular visitor to Aitutaki, and it didn't disappoint. Set next to the beach in... More

Our first night dinner, a short walk down the beach from Etu Moana to the best fish and chips anywhere. Very casual dining, full of locals so you know it is good value and good food

My bride just wanted a quiet lunch on the beach, so to find Puffys location was perfect. We had some nice local fish for lunch that we could take down to the beach & sit under the little hut on the beach & watch the amazing blue ocean roll on by... Definitely a good place to chill out & relax... More
