Shared a wonderful experience with a dear friend turning 50. We had a gorgeous night listening to opera, with a lovely menu which was superb. The service and quality of the evening was special and memorable. Thank you The Islander Restaurant.

Kia Orana,
Thank you for your review.
We are pleased to read you enjoyed your 'Opera on Rarotonga' evening with us on the beach at the Islander Hotel & Restaurant & Hula Bar. The setting was indeed magical and "Motone Productions - The Entertainment Company of the Cook Islands", did a brilliant job in organising the beautiful Opera event.
We hope to see you again, soon.
Kia Manuia.
