We ate regularly at the Flying Boat Fish & Chips and were always happy with our meals. We loved the taste of the gresh fish! Our boys loved hanging out at the boat and down the beach. At great location.

On my second trip to Rarotonga with friends we had to have the best fish and chips at the Flying boat. It's always fresh and the setting is great and casual. Always a must on any future trip.
